    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.

    Eh, I'm not here to convince you to like the Clips better but you and Steve seems to be ignoring the facts that Clips beat them in the playoffs and this season and won 11 straight games and going for 12th tonight (*knock on wood*).


    Just like star power means nothing, pointing out one is better than the other also means nothing.

    People said Memphis will dominate last years playoff (I said it myself) after their tough match-up with OKC a year before but they still lost to the Clips, plain and simple, with a injured CP3 who could barely finish the game. This years team is far superior to last years. But hey, we all have our picks.

    Besides CP3, the Clip I actually like watching the best is Eric Bledsoe.

    i really do like this team. they're great to watch. they play with a lot of spirit, almost like a high school or college team. there's nothing jaded about them. griffin has really come a long ways; not sure he's zach randolph yet, but he's certainly got more weapons than last year ... and, of course, he's a human highlight reel. cp3 is like the big brother that keeps things running. and i like jordan, too. he's not a dwight or bynum, but the dude's got hops and he plays all-out all the time. caron butler's always been a good player. then lo, matt barnes, ronny turiaf and crawford coming off the bench ... they can go for miles and miles.

    Lakers. At least Short Bus has Kup minding the shop or this would be a done deal.

    Actually, if they could get him for a bag of chips, I'd like to see it. Gasol could play center off the bench and he, Amare, and D12 could rotate through the front court, each getting about 30 min a game.

    +1. Its the first place that came to mind. They're already over the luxury tax anyway. He'd be absolutely perfect.

    Old, injured, and overpaid. Sounds like LA.

    No one is better than CP3 . No argument there.

    Don't you guys pile all over me when I point out the Spurs' regular season record? They won 19 of 21 going down the stretch last year and won ALL of their playoff game until losing 1 to the Clips and 4-2 in OKC. When the Clips can do that (or the Lakers for that matter), then talk smack.
    And Jordan also can't shoot a free throw to save his life. And he's no Timmy (even at his age).

    We aren't discussing the Spurs though, it was Memphis or Clippers so why bring up your team and say talk smack when the Clips accomplish the same thing? The Grizz hasn't accomplish the same thing either.

    No one is even talking smack about the Spurs. :lol:

    And iirc, the Clips didnt win a single game against the Spurs in the playoffs last year. They were swept.

    1. The Clips are playing well RIGHT now. No dispute.
    2. The smack about the Spurs has been spoken repeatedly in this Forum when they were in the same position.
    3. Playoffs are what matter.

    Savvy?
