    Have any other teams in NBA history this talented had so many players made of glass?

    Okay so... I have a question, especially for multi decade tenured NBA fans. Has any other team with as much depth and talent as the current Clippers had literally half their roster made of glass? It seems like the Clippers constantly have two key players out at a time. Hill, Odom and Billups to start the season.... then it was just Hill and Billups. Now it's CP3 and Billups the last week and a half pretty much. Butler, Bledsoe and Griffin have all played through injuries this year that significantly affected their play for stretches of time.

    When this team was constructed the main reason it could never be "too much depth" was because you're guaranteed to have 1-2 guys out at a time. I truly feel that health will be 90 percent of the reason the Clippers either win a title or get booted in the first round. There has yet to be a game where the Clippers have had the full roster. I'm wondering this because I get pissed about losses of course and it gets me thinking about how much we are missing when guys like CP3, Billups, Hill etc sit out games.

    I was trying to think back in NBA history and couldn't think of another contending team that was this injury prone.

    That is the biggest concern I had for the Clippers going forward. CP3's health.

    Swash Blazers are a good one but never considered a "contender" at least yet. More of a first or second round exit at best team.

    They would have been if they were healthy. He's referring to the Blazers of a few years ago not the current Blazers btw.

    Yea but we talking about perception or reality? Blazers were legit.


    But the correct answer to this question were the Tmac-Yao Rockets.
    Yo Kobe, get at me bro, we'd have a good time, man

    Hes talking about contenders tho. Its one thing when a potential first round team misses the playoffs, but when a potential contender gets hurt, thats really damaging to the game.

    Tmac and Yao suffering their injuries deprived us of that competition, the LAL-HOU matchups that should have been back when only 2 teams could hang with LA (POR/HOU)
