    Danny Granger to Clippers!

    So where do the Clippers rank now in the Western conference? I think this signing can put them right over the hump they have been on for the past 3 seasons. Thoughts?!

    Clippers will greatly enjoy Granger's 35% shooting

    I doubt they are expecting a good shooter. What they are expecting is defense and rebounding, where he's still an upgrade over Barnes and Dudley. A veteran guy who can fill in at SG/SF with all of our injuries and be a classy vet. In fact he's posting some of the best defensive figures of his entire career this year, to go with the worst offensive ones.

    We have enough scoring obviously as the number 2 offense in the league (not far from overtaking Portland). If we can get healthy by season end we will easily be the best offense. Don't need Granger to score even 10 ppg.. as long as he does everything else.

    Agreed, thats the beauty of it, he wont need to be a scoring machine to help us. Just stick to your strengths and play good defense.

    PG- CP3
    SG- JJ Redick/Crawford
    SF- Danny Granger
    PF- Blake Griffin
    C- DJ

    That is a nasty starting lineup! (assuming that is the rotation they decide to use)

    Griffin/Hedo
    DJ/Davis

    Is on paper easily the best rotation in the NBA if healthy IMO. The problem is we never ARE healthy so it's pointless to debate "on paper". But no other team has two quality players at every single position, including backups who were starters this year or last.

    Yep, its been that way for as long as I can remember, but I keep hearing we have one of the best strength and conditioning coaches in the league so im not quite sure what it is that makes our players so injury prone. If we can get healthy come playoff time I think we stand a very good chance of making it to Western Conference finals.

    Well apparently the Phoenix Suns staff.. told Grant Hill... that the Clippers training staff was elite and on par with themselves. As you said though, it doesn't add up because our guys are regularly misdiagnosed, out way longer than they should be and getting injured far too frequently in bogus ways.

    Personally don't see Granger as a difference maker to be honest. Good as a backup 3 and maybe could be a decent small ball PF in certain matchups. Don't think he'll put a team over the top though based from what I've seen this year

    Lol how many late season signing, role players put teams over the top? It's going to come down to the team taking defense more seriously, not role players as much. When the Clippers lock in on D.. they are elite.. problem is they only do it a few minutes a game. Defensive consistency is everything for this team.

    The Clippers are a pure example of a team that thinks they can buy a championship.

    I hope they crash and burn in the first round.

    I hope the Clips aren't seriously considering starting Granger.

    Griffin- Drafted
    Jordan- Drafted (2nd round mind you)
    CP3- Traded all of team assets for besides Griffin
    Redick- Traded BLEDSOE for
    Doc- Traded a first round pick for


    That's the core of our team..... the Clippers aren't just buying a bunch of players like the Yankees lmao. Everything we've acquired, we've sacrificed big for. Hell even Griffin being drafted.. we traded Zbo for literally PEANUTS.. just to clear space for his minutes.

    Um, How about the Pacers who upgraded Danny Granger's spot? Pacers have the best roation in the NBA. You literally took the Pacers garbage and inserted it into your starting lineup and you want to say the Clippers have the best rotation? OK.

    Well I was mainly answering the OP because he said he thought it would put the Clippers over the hump..which I disagree with. It'll be as far as BG/CP takes them. Think he'll be solid depth, but not a difference maker, that's all.
