Clips no... Griz, you never know. That unit is as solid as I've seen in the league. Definitely better of the 2 squads.

Grizz lost to the Clips in the playoffs last year, Clips beat the Grizz this year alreayd, Clips has a 11 game winning streak and the Clips team is a much better and deeper squad this year and the Grizz is still the better of the two?

I think they are. If they meet in the playoffs this season, lets put $100 on it strait up.

Nah, forum wagers always disappoint, dont really want to get into that (sup steve) but I think you just have utter hate for LA that you cant see how good they are and how great they can be.
post #9950 of 18042
^^ No hate. Used to live in LA. Even said the other day the Clips are much better because of their role players. Just think Memphis has a better mix.

Living in LA means nothing, Steve used to like in LA too and would really prefer it if the Lakers just burn down to the ground these days. lol8[1].gif

I Was watching the wolves okc game in a Florida keys dive bar and it was fun seeing the wolves 1-8 players being 7/8ths international players (kevin love the lone americano) and um.... 100% caucasian-ish.

rubio had a scary moment when he came up lame on a fast break. Damn the euro players have adopted Adelman's Princeton triangle ish offense perfectly with barea and love being the go to guys if they need isolation or if it breaks down.

^^ Did Adelman use that offense when he coached Sacramento back in the day?

The Grizz have more playoff experience, a better center, and a better power forward than Griffin. Yes- Griffin can dunk over everbody but what else. And then there's his FTP. Chris Paul is the best PG in the league but Conley's no slouch. Tony Allen steals. A lot. I'd give it Memphis in 6.

I love Nash and d-12 and Pau. Get rid of Kobe and MWW and I'm down for the Lakers.

You obviously haven't been watching any Clipper game, griffins game has evolved. He is more versatile than Randolph now. Blakes jumpshots has improved immensely, not much hesitation anymore. He can drive and do some dream shakes, doesn't panic and takes his time. He can also hit bank shots now and sometimes while spinning on a fade away. FT% is still shit but he is improving unlike Dwight. Saying Griffin is all about hops and dunks just show how much BBall you watch, even his highlights aren't all dunks and if you keep reading your lovely analysts then you will know that Griffins has improved and expanded his offense.

Deandre Jordan has also improved his offensive game, dude can post now. CP3 is 100% healthy, he was hobbled almost the whole season last year. Addition of Barnes and continued improvement of Bledsoe and great scoring from Crawford has really made the team very good all around. Odom is shaping up well too, he won't be the same 6th man of the year caliber but dude is starting to make baskets and running fast again, he is even finishing the game at PF lately. Turiaf has been good off the bench too. Hill and Billups aren't even back yet and that just adds more depth and veteran experience. I have watched every Clippers game this year and they are definitely much better.

Again last years Clippers team beat the Grizz in the playoffs with a hurt CP3 and this years team is much better and they already beat the Grizz very good team this year and have an 11 game winning streak and the team, a team that has sucked for so long and the haters still can't give them credit? You just sounds like sour grapes just because the Clips are from LA.

Conley is good but really can't even be compared to CP3. Gay, Randolph and Gasol are all good too, no doubt but the Grizz just doesn't have the same bench, there have been games where the second unit of Barnes, Bledsoe, Turiaf, Odom and Crawford has won the game for the Clips allowing the starters to rest in the 4th, that 2nd unit has expanded the lead int he 4th from 2 to 20 in at least 3 games.

Of you wearing a Kobe jersey? No need an address to send it to, just post it here, that was the deal.

NY tried to trade Amare in the off-season:

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/21/sports/basketball/stoudemire-savior-of-knicks-now-presents-only-problems.html?_r=2&
Quote:
This past summer, the Knicks offered Stoudemire to nearly every team in the league — “available for free,” as one rival executive put it. But they found no takers because of his diminished production, his health and his contract, which has three years and $65 million remaining (counting this season) and which is uninsured against a career-ending knee injury.


The way the Knicks are playing, Amare could really just ruin a good thing and trading before the deadline is probably the best thing they can but what do they need/lack in their line-up though? I have watched less than a handful of Knicks games this season so it's hard to say what they would need to get better but they seem to be well off with their current line-up barring major injuries to Melo.
