BLAKE GRIFFIN: Good Luck Kid!
And with the #1 pick, the Los Angeles Clippers take…any hopes of winning. Thanks for coming Blake Griffin. This is the cellar of the NBA, this is the Clippers. Don’t worry about those other guys across the hall, we don’t mingle with them. I can’t help but feel sorry for college studs that go to NBA teams that don’t care. Blake Griffin is gonna learn that losing isn’t easy in the NBA, even if you’re getting paid. The Clippers are stacked (in a bad way) at the PF and C positions. They’ve got mercenaries Marcus Camby, Zach Randolph, veteran Chris Kamaan who all demand big minutes. Al Thornton hasn’t seen a shot he doesn’t like. Baron Davis plays like a 50 year old. If the Clippers are interested in saving Griffin’s career and possibly the name of the franchise, they’d should start making some serious moves. Starting with getting rid of B-Diddy, Camby and Randolph and build around Eric Gordon and Griffin. I know that’s a mouthful but they never should’ve taken on these contracts. Baron and Camby have no heard. Randolph is a cancer. I like point guard Mike Taylor, but only as a back-up. He’s a good spark-plug off the bench. Fred Jones needs to go. He’s a little to “streets” for me. Steve Novak can straight out shoot. Oh yeah, get rid of Mike Dunleavy. Mr. Coach/GM just doesn’t mesh. He just omits fumes of loserness. Getting back to Griffin, it’ll be interesting to see if he can dominate in the bigs. Gives me a reason to watch Clipper games, at least for a couple of weeks.
