The irony is that today’s L.A. Times reported this:
“My preference is to be here in L.A.,” Camby said. “It’s always good to be wanted [but] I would love to finish my career here.”
We woulda loved to have you here too, big guy. Always need a Dr. Dre lookalike with tenacious boarding & shot-blocking ability.
Wow. Just when it appeared that Sterling was ‘getting it,’ they reach out to Isiah Thomas for the head coaching gig? It’s not enough that he ruined the Knicks, Pacers, CBA, Raptors and Magic Johnson?
J.A. Adande, L.A. Times alum, reports for ESPNLosAngeles that Mike Dunleavy was (finally) fired today.
Long overdue, and kudos to Sterling and the Clippers – maybe they’ll take their robustly talented roster and pick a good leader that can make ’em mesh. Is this the first sign that the Clipper Curse may be ending?
Is Byron Scott the next coach of the Clippers? Good fit – Los Angeles second-tier hero, proven coach, good roster that can win immediately. . .
The Curse Continues
I really, really thought the Clips had a shot this year – with Camby, Kaman & Griffin, they’d be the only team in the League that could match the Lakers’ length inside. Add BDiddy and Gordon, and their starting five is probably the second strongest in the NBA. Thornton, Butler off the bench = Clippers in the playoffs.
Not now, though.
Blake Griffin out for Entire Season (thank you to the underrated Lisa Dillman)
