Do you guys think that the Clippers current roster is enough to get say to the WCF?

How do you think chemistry will work out with this new squad?

No.....wait yes. OK maybe. All these things depend on talent, chemistry, and health. If Davis, Camby, Kaman, Thornton have big years and are relatively healthy all year we could be a great team. If Gordon takes rookie of the year.
Add to this a decline in Dallas and Phoenix, a slow learning curve in Portland, and one or two teams affected by injury (as with any season). We could be in the mix....now maybe we do well to start the year and it inspires the front office to pull the trigger on a trade deadline deal.... race to the finish.

ROY is probably going to go to michael beasley.

thinking reasonably
1. baron will have a better than career average after coming home

2. mobley will have average to subpar year due to decline

3. either thornton or ricky will have a good year.

4. camby is a man on a mission

5. kaman should have a good year barring injury

thus

we should make playoffs. western finals... lets hope.



but if we do, I bet we are gonna get incredibly busy in here...

I wish. I doubt we could be THAT good. I think best case is getting in as a mid to low seed and making some noise in the first round. We will have a really tough beating the; other LA team, New Orleans, Utah or Houston.

We have a chance to make the playoffs but as far as the WCF goes we need to make one more trade before that can happen.

Wcf is out of reach as of now. Which im fine with, theres 0 guarentee as to who is going to be top seeded as the hornets, lakers, spurs, rockets all have the ability to. However I agree if we make 1 more big trade we could.

We will have a nice run. It will be a fun season. Anythng can happen.
Most important, the team has to stay healthy and hungry.

Baron will be league MVP.
Gordon will be ROY.

Until the season starts I go in believing this.

I think WCF is a little out of the realm unless Baron Davis has an MVP season.

I say playoffs as a 7th or 8th seed is plausible and an upset 1st round victory would be a sucessful season to build towards in 2009 when all the players except the core will be expiring deals to get more out of them.
