Is this a serious question?

For starters, Elton Brand didn't play last season because of his injury - so there's no doubt they will do better than last season.

If Baron stays healthy, they will be a good team and a great one to watch. Camby's presence on D will be felt, in a good way for the Clips, bad for the Nuggets

I think they may do better but man will the pressure be on Baron Davis to score with no more Brand or Maggette. Im also very worried about how Kaman and Camby will play together.

They also have Cattino mobely (the cat) he's a good scorer...chris kaman...really good center....And camby's last coach wanted him to make the allstar team last year....cambys better than you think....is value was under shown playing along side AI amd Mello.....If clips can fill in the holes they could suprise people this year.

PG- Baron Davis
SG- Eric Gordon
SF- Al Thornton
PF- Marcus Camby
C- Chris Kaman

That's a pretty talented young lineup. They will definitly exceed last year's win total.

Kaman and Camby is a scary duo down low. They may not be superstars, but they are both workers who do the dirty work. No one will be comng inside with those two down low. Great move by the Clippers.

they will definately be better than last year. Brand was hurt most of the year and thornton has a year under his belt watch out for him. still not good enough for the playoffs though

Baron did it for the Warriors. I don't see why it wouldn't help the Clips.

Yes i think they will be a lot better than last year... They were horrible last year.. Now they have a true point guard, when healthy, is top 5 in the game... Camby and kaman form a very big big front court... They will play well together i believe...Al thornton should turn into a 18 ppg 6 reb and great defender type player this season.. especialyl with Bdaddy... and The have Eric Gordon who can shoot the heck out of the basketball.. they have some nice pieces at Sg and Sf for bdaddy... I think they are set in their backcourt.... The front court is better than average as well... But if the can really make a run at josh smith... I dont kno if they still can.. that would make this team a contender. but i doubt it will happen now.

pg: Bdaddy
sg: eric gordon
sf: al thornton
pf: marcus Camby
C: cris kaman

with shaun livingston, cattino mobley and quinton ross on the bench....
I predict them to be a contener for the 7th and 8th spots in the west.. which make them a pretty good team in the east.

They should be one of the top rebounding teams in the league with Camby and Kaman, however they can easily get run out of the building, so Yes

They will definitely do better than last season. They're about 1 or 2 pieces away from being a 5 or 6 seed, and as of now they can contend for the 7 or 8th spot in the playoffs. I doubt they'll be able to bring in another key player, probably just a couple of fillers/role players.

Sweet team down low with Camby/Kaman. I am concerned about their bench. Who backs up Davis? What happens when Mobley goes through his slumps?

The starting 5 will need to be on every night because their second unit has more questions then answers. They can contend for the 7th-8th spot.

No, they're missing 1 player that can make a major difference. The West is too strong for the clippers...

Certainly better than last year. This lineup can win around 30 games.

I don't really agree, they have three guys that could foreseeable put up 20 a game in Baron, Al and Chris and another guy in Cuttino who, if with the program and knocking down shots could drop 15 a game. So I really do not see scoring as a problem.

^^^^No way they make playoffs^^^^

Baron is old.

Clipps will make the Playoffs if they stay healthy..

With Current rosters This is how I see the West:

Lakers
Hornets
Jazz
Rockets
Spurs
Blazers
Clippers
--------------------------------------------------
Dallas/Suns/Golden State/Denver will fight for the 8th

when you consider brand played 8 games last year, yes. but if brand played a whole season no.

Definitely better, but I don't think they're going to the playoffs. I think they're 1 or 2 players away.

I agree. Those two are rebounding beasts.

it depends on how their young players, like Eric Gordon and Al Thornton performs.

also depends on how Camby and Kaman fit with each other.

but Kaman and Camby are great rebounders, their defense will improve, and lets see if they can score enough to win games.
