I feel like I have a responsibility to comment on the Clippers’ not winning the lottery, but I think most of us realized that it was a foregone conclusion.   The Clippers will pick 14th.  I don’t think it’s a certainty that they’ll go with a point guard.  With Maggette most likely leaving after the season, the Clips will need a 3 who can step in and perform in 2008-2009.  If a guy like Al Thornton or Nick Young is on the board, I can’t imagine that the Clips won’t consider him; though if Acie Law is available, he’d be a nice fit for the Clips.
