Holy crap the Bobcats won. Now... who is the next to get their second victory... Cats or Panthers?
Ewww..that's a toughie...do they play each other?
Marquee may be a better word.
If theylook like fossils now imagine what they will look like by the all-star game.
Chris Paul's game is truly a thing of beauty.
How good can this Clipper team be?
They've got the best PG and great leader in Chris Paul, Griffin is a matchup nightmare and getting better defensively, a legit post presence in Jordan. Caron Butler still has a very good game. Instant offense in Crawford, that pesky shit of a player in Matt Barnes. Not sure what Odom gives them but Hill is still a solid player even at his age.
They're a legit 10 deep team.
Just wish he wasn't on the Clippers
I wouldn't call Griffin a matchup nightmare. I didn't watch tonight but unless something has drastically changed(i.e. he's knocking down midrange jumpers consistently), he's still very one dimensional.
He's quick...can get to the basket or get to the free throw line. Still, if you can keep him in front of you, you don't have much to worry about.
He can get by just about anyone that guards him. If he ever develops a decent 15 foot shot and just a few posts moves he will be nearly unstoppable.
Huge if. Smart defender play off of him and make him shoot. If you try to body him 10 feet out your going to end up on a poster.
No bigger than assuming he'll someday develop a mid-range jumper.
I like it. I hated seeing him waste his career in New Orleans.
True enough. It's a matter of him realizing that he'd be a true dominant force and dedicating himself to being that kind of player. He's young still.
When I think matchup nightmare, I think LeBron/Durant/Shaq(in his prime). Someone who can easily go for 40 or 50 if they take over. I don't see Griffin doing that. As it is, Griffin is an explosive athlete whose skillset is very limited right now.
Either way, he's such a great athlete that even if his basketball skill is limited, which it is, he can still get you 20 and 10 every single night. He's not "the guy" on the team, which is a great thing for his development.
That's another thing, he had better be developing these post moves and jumpers soon. With the way his knees already are and the way the body ages, he probably won't have this kind of explosiveness for long. Being 6'10" combined with the jumping he does ain't easy on those knees.
He played on teams in New Orleans that were far better than this Clippers crew.
Far better is a stretch.
This Clippers team is going to be one of the top two seeds in the West? If not, much better is exactly correct.
