It’s been a sleepy few weeks as the majority of the Clippers’ roster has been set and “breaking news” is now in reference to the eleventh, twelfth or thirteenth man. Training camp is still a month away and, in reality, the regular season is mostly a laboratory for the Clipper[...]
I’m emerging from my Grad School Thesis Cave to post some Clipper thoughts by none other than my brother, Reyn Murphy. I miss Baron Davis and I shouldn’t. Baron was special. He wasn’t great, and by the most important measurement he was rarely even good. But, nevertheless, he was one of the rar[...]
In his first season as coach of the Clippers, you could say Vinny Del Negro was exactly what we expected him to be. His perceived ability to develop players and to “get” his team to play hard through the last whistle were the reasons the Clippers hired him over Dwane Casey, who came with high praise[...]
When you take Baron Davis off a team, any team, and replace him with Mo Williams, you will inevitably get a different style of play from your point guard. One is an exceptional passer, the other – aside from a few months this year in Cleveland – a gifted shooter. But beyond these most basic characte[...]

A cheeseburger off the drive-thru value meal might hit the spot, but if you order a $14 burger at an expensive steak house and the waiter serves you a Big Mac, you would complain to the manager. For 13 million dollars a year, fans expect everything. That’s re[...]
When Baron Davis arrived in Los Angeles almost three years ago, he was supposed to be the harbinger of a new era for the Clippers. He had just taken the almost equally pathetic Golden State Warriors to consecutive winning seasons and with a real big man in Elton Brand, he would be the bearded and sm[...]
Over the past four seasons, neither the Clippers nor the Knicks have won more than 32 games in any of them. During the losing, they have shared such players as Zach Randolph, Tim Thomas, Mardy Collins and Cuttino Mobley (kind of). Yet while both struggled to win, even to put together consistent line[...]
