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.
Griffin has improved. I still prefer Randolph.
Jordan has improved. No question Gasol is a better center.
Connolly has improved, playing very well in fact. Paul is the better PG.
Tony Allen is a solid player, a wash vs Barnes/Butler.
Rudy Gay better than LAC options.
Clippers may have some better role players. I think the Grizz play better as a unit and come playoffs the minutes tighten down anyway.
Just look at LA, supposed to be a superstar team? Boston looks like poo, but supposedly improved. Its not just names. Both teams have some chemistry, I like the Grizzlies chemistry better.
Other than CP, the Grizz have a better starting 5. CP can be a difference maker. #1 I prefer to watch the Grizzlies play, #2, I stand by my $100 they'd take the series.
