    That was against GSW, everyone scores big against them. Jennings had 55 points in his rookie year, and he only had like 10 or 15 pts in the first half of that game. I am getting owned in blks and stls that it'll be difficult to recover. My bigs doesn't blk consistently outside of Hibbert.

    i am planning to lose pts (i have no big scorers outside of lebron while iggy isn't 100%), fg% and ft%. turnovers is a toss up but lebron always gives up too many, and with all my PGs i'm sure i'll lose that too.

    I may not follow them, but watching these highlights never get boring...

    jet and RFX...are you guys really legit Clips fans?

    I don't exactly hate them, but I don't actively follow them either. I can't say I know too many people who are fans of both teams.


    I've always liked the clips even though they sucked, I would watch the games whenever there wasn't a laker game on and we'd go to the games several years before my buddy's gf was a laker girl (she used to be clippers spirit). It's weird how in every state two teams are crosstown rivals but with the lakers and clippers there never was a serious rivalry and they play in the same building as well so I know a lot of people who are fans of both teams.

    My experience has generally been that Lakers fans are basically ambivalent to what's going on with the Clippers, and Clippers fans are, for some reason or another, Lakers haters.

    Like I said, I don't really hate them...I hope they do well, but I can't say I can name anyone on the team apart from Griffin, Davis, and Gordon. I was shocked to see Puppy Poop's on the team this year.

    Because the Clippers have been hysterically (and also historically) awful... even in their best years they were what? The 6th seed?

    That's why there is no rivalry. Durr.

    And it was only like 6 years ago when they made the playoffs.

    That is not true, for me at least. Those guys play a minor role but you pick those guys to compliment your top picks. For me, my top 6 picks (DWill, Melo, Gay, Kidd, Aldridge & KG) really holds my team together, they are my top scorers, rebounders and passers. If it weren't for Melo and Gay rebounding well, even Aldridge is rebounding well this year, I would probably be down in that category. DWill and Kidd helps me in assists and 3's. This is more evident considering how the rest of my team are practically waiver wire players; Douglas, Dunleavy, BMiller, Ford, Warrick, Prince and Favors. I think we just have some players who are inactive, one in particular actually doesn't even set his team, which would suck if he becomes active all of a sudden and starts playing all his players, his opponents before already got a good win against him but it happens.

    Weren't you 12 then? And what makes you think if they heated up all of a sudden the city would be torn between the two? LOL

    you are probably right. i just dont follow NBA bball that much anymore. i haven't really picked anyone up or looked for a trade. hell, i haven't really even checked to see my weaknesses or strengths.
