View Full Version : Will the Clippers Make Multiple WCF appearances over the next decade? (Hint: yes)

Current Roster for next season:
PG Baron Davis / Sebastian Telfair
SG Eric Gordon / Ricky Davis
SF Al Thornton / Craig Smith
PF Blake Griffin / Marcus Camby
C Chris Kaman / DeAndre Jordan

This team already will threat to make the playoffs. And when they do make the 7th or 8th seed, it will help put these young guys on that stage to get a feel for how to play together when the games matter. But other than that, next season doesn’t really matter. There are only a few things Clipper fans have to look forward to next season:
1) Watch Blake Griffin make his campaign for ROY
2) Watch Blake Griffin run a charity for raising awareness on Albinos, even though he’s not Albino himself (close though).
3) Try and spot Baron Davis at fast food joints in LA a couple of hours before the home games
4) Watch Mike Dunleavy’s face cringe about 10-15 times a game when he sees Davis break a play Dunleavy spent the whole night creating with his son Coby, and then call a timeout, to pull out Davis or let him think about what he did, when in reality Davis just wanted to rest off the Double Whooper not mixing well in his belly.
5) Watch Ricky Davis try to fill in Baron’s shoes for play-breaking-shots while Baron’s on the bench, who is also secretly trying to get himself to sit back down on the bench just so he could talk with Marcus Camby about which club do they wanna do lines at next.
6) Watch Mark Madsen vigorously cheer on his teammates jumping on DeAndre Jordan’s shoulders (who has this “man don’t f-ing touch me” look on his face) after a 20 foot fade away jumper by Al Thorton who cut the deficit to 17.

But after the lost season next year, an already foregone conclusion, things start looking really good, really fast. Next summer, for the first time in the franchise’s history Bill Murray won’t be calling Donald Sterling to ask if the head coaching job’s available because he wants to film a mockumentary called Groundhog Day 2, trying to convince Sterling that, “Hey, we’re gonna lose, but at least we can try and have our fans in stitches.”

Contracts coming off the books:
Marcus Camby: $10.9 million
Mark Madsen: $2.85 million
Craig Smith: $2.76 million
Sebastian Telfair: $2.5 million (PO)
Ricky Davis: $2.5 million

It’s clear the trades the Clippers made this summer were just to free up cap space for 2010. That adds up to $21.5 million cut off the payroll. And that excludes the money Mike Dunleavy will be reeling in from Rogaine commercials as well as the 3-4 million cut off the payroll this summer with Brian Skinner (the clipper legend), Steve Novak (Legend in the YMCA gyms), Alex Acker (a name that’s oddly not worth trying to pronounce), and Fred Jones (a walking bet which NBA players have an over/under for when he’s out of the league) all becoming free agents.

The biggest regret is the Baron Davis signing, an aging, fat, repulsive, chemistry-breaking, Drumsticks-belly-aching, Jello-butt-shaking, brittle-bones-breaking point guard signed to a lucrative 5 year contract (can you imagine him and Elton signed? The fans should thank Elton for sticking the knife in their backs). But he still is fringe (not fridge) all-star who can lead a team in the playoffs.

The Clippers have their core intact:
The franchise tag – Blake Griffin.

That’s their core. Everyone else should and will be tradeable over next season. They surely can’t keep both Eric Gordon and Al “one-trick-pony” Thornton. They’re both score first players. And with Blake Griffin in the front court, how necessary is it to have Kaman’s post moves?

I say keep Gordon, lose Thornton. Trade him away for a Shane Battier-type-player. Trade Kaman to the Bulls for Kirk Hinrich. Sign Joel Pryzbilla in 2010. Sign a solid backup shooting guard like Roger Mason. Then go after your superstar with about 18 million in your wallet.

PG Baron Davis / Kirk Hinrich
SG Eric Gordon / Roger Mason
SF ? / Shane Battier
PF Blake Griffin / who cares
C Joel Pryzbilla / DeAndre Jordan

Are there any NBA superstars available in 2010 who play the small forward position? Huh? What’s that? That’s right baby – Matt Harping.

Of course, the Clippers could try different scenarios in which they go after a different superstar that plays the guard – Dwyane Wade (Pinch me Chocolate Jesus!) or Joe Johnson (more likely, but still oozing with awesomeness), and then try to work trades that make it easier to slot him in the lineup. But I say Matt Harping would do wonders. The Clippers are primed to make multiple WCF appearance and maybe even win a championship or two. Let me repeat that to emphasize the dawning basketball revolution which is about to take place, THE CLIPPERS are PRIMED to make MULTIPLE WCF appearances and maybe win A CHAMPIONSHIP or two. Matt Harping will be the biggest savior since Jesus.

Nah, Simmons is secretly a Clippers fan just to spite the Lakers and his favorite player Kobe Bryant. You didn't hear his rants about watching Marcus Camby and someone else (the name is escaping me right now) clown on the bench and during timeouts.

I'm pretty sure you guys can only go up because of the fact that winning 1 game the entire season would be an improvement. :laugh: <-- No offense muh man. I actually love the combo of Stafford and Johnson for the future.

between this post and the original post in this thread, I had to make my first post because even though I'm hopelessly optimistic for my Grizzlies, I would never make a statement saying the Grizzlies would make the Conference Finals several times within the next decade...and the Clippers have been a losing franchise for decades longer than the Grizzlies

anyways, good luck....you two have some HIGH aspirations

Im not a Clipper fan! I'd rather be a fan of Chlamydia than a fan of the Clippers! But you guys are right, they need to fire Mike "what-can-I-do-today-to-make-myself-look-like-a-lamenting-alcoholic-whose-living-paycheck-to-paycheck-after-my-wife-left-me" Dunleavy before they can be taken seriously. But chances of that are slim, still, all he does is make it slightly harder for the inevitability of them making a few trips to the WCFs.

why would joe travel across the country to play there?

Clippers are not making any playoffs as long as Mike Dunleavy is coaching. That dude is the worst coach of any coach in the NBA. His record proves it.

"4) Watch Mike Dunleavy’s face cringe about 10-15 times a game when he sees Davis break a play Dunleavy spent the whole night creating with his son Coby, and then call a timeout, to pull out Davis or let him think about what he did, when in reality Davis just wanted to rest off the Double Whooper not mixing well in his belly."

did you just say his son is Coby?? as in coby karl??????????

You are assuming they don't give out any stupid contracts, players don't get serious injuries, Blake Griffin panning out and players actually wanting to go to the Clippers.

WCF =Women's College Finals???

I dont know, Uconn is gonna have a good team this year. But now that you have Blake i dont know who Geno is gonna put in to guard him. I guess you guys have a shot.

HAHA! great read.. but honestly the clips wont make the playoffs..i don't see any of the teams who made it last year falling out of the playoffs..even phoenix couldn't make the playoffs..so in order to even get one of the 8th spots u need to get past 9th.

If the Clippers could land Lebron (not unrealistic), then they would be a lot of fun to watch.

Current Roster for next season:
PG Baron Davis / Sebastian Telfair
SG Eric Gordon / Ricky Davis
SF Al Thornton / Craig Smith

C Chris Kaman / DeAndre Jordan

This team already will threat to make the playoffs. And when they do make the 7th or 8th seed, it will help put these young guys on that stage to get a feel for how to play together when the games matter. But other than that, next season doesn’t really matter. There are only a few things Clipper fans have to look forward to next season:
1) Watch Blake Griffin make his campaign for ROY
2) Watch Blake Griffin run a charity for raising awareness on Albinos, even though he’s not Albino himself (close though).
3) Try and spot Baron Davis at fast food joints in LA a couple of hours before the home games
4) Watch Mike Dunleavy’s face cringe about 10-15 times a game when he sees Davis break a play Dunleavy spent the whole night creating with his son Coby, and then call a timeout, to pull out Davis or let him think about what he did, when in reality Davis just wanted to rest off the Double Whooper not mixing well in his belly.
5) Watch Ricky Davis try to fill in Baron’s shoes for play-breaking-shots while Baron’s on the bench, who is also secretly trying to get himself to sit back down on the bench just so he could talk with Marcus Camby about which club do they wanna do lines at next.
6) Watch Mark Madsen vigorously cheer on his teammates jumping on DeAndre Jordan’s shoulders (who has this “man don’t f-ing touch me” look on his face) after a 20 foot fade away jumper by Al Thorton who cut the deficit to 17.

But after the lost season next year, an already foregone conclusion, things start looking really good, really fast. Next summer, for the first time in the franchise’s history Bill Murray won’t be calling Donald Sterling to ask if the head coaching job’s available because he wants to film a mockumentary called Groundhog Day 2, trying to convince Sterling that, “Hey, we’re gonna lose, but at least we can try and have our fans in stitches.”

Contracts coming off the books:
Marcus Camby: $10.9 million
Mark Madsen: $2.85 million
Craig Smith: $2.76 million
Sebastian Telfair: $2.5 million (PO)
Ricky Davis: $2.5 million

It’s clear the trades the Clippers made this summer were just to free up cap space for 2010. That adds up to $21.5 million cut off the payroll. And that excludes the money Mike Dunleavy will be reeling in from Rogaine commercials as well as the 3-4 million cut off the payroll this summer with Brian Skinner (the clipper legend), Steve Novak (Legend in the YMCA gyms), Alex Acker (a name that’s oddly not worth trying to pronounce), and Fred Jones (a walking bet which NBA players have an over/under for when he’s out of the league) all becoming free agents.

The biggest regret is the Baron Davis signing, an aging, fat, repulsive, chemistry-breaking, Drumsticks-belly-aching, Jello-butt-shaking, brittle-bones-breaking point guard signed to a lucrative 5 year contract (can you imagine him and Elton signed? The fans should thank Elton for sticking the knife in their backs). But he still is fringe (not fridge) all-star who can lead a team in the playoffs.

The Clippers have their core intact:
The franchise tag – Blake Griffin.

That’s their core. Everyone else should and will be tradeable over next season. They surely can’t keep both Eric Gordon and Al “one-trick-pony” Thornton. They’re both score first players. And with Blake Griffin in the front court, how necessary is it to have Kaman’s post moves?

I say keep Gordon, lose Thornton. Trade him away for a Shane Battier-type-player. Trade Kaman to the Bulls for Kirk Hinrich. Sign Joel Pryzbilla in 2010. Sign a solid backup shooting guard like Roger Mason. Then go after your superstar with about 18 million in your wallet.

PG Baron Davis / Kirk Hinrich
SG Eric Gordon / Roger Mason
SF ? / Shane Battier
PF Blake Griffin / who cares
C Joel Pryzbilla / DeAndre Jordan

Are there any NBA superstars available in 2010 who play the small forward position? Huh? What’s that? That’s right baby – Matt Harping.

Of course, the Clippers could try different scenarios in which they go after a different superstar that plays the guard – Dwyane Wade (Pinch me Chocolate Jesus!) or Joe Johnson (more likely, but still oozing with awesomeness), and then try to work trades that make it easier to slot him in the lineup. But I say Matt Harping would do wonders. The Clippers are primed to make multiple WCF appearance and maybe even win a championship or two. Let me repeat that to emphasize the dawning basketball revolution which is about to take place, THE CLIPPERS are PRIMED to make MULTIPLE WCF appearances and maybe win A CHAMPIONSHIP or two. Matt Harping will be the biggest savior since Jesus.

Mike Dunleaveys sons name is actually Mike Dunleavey. Colby is George Karls son. They need to fire Mike Dunleavey before they think about making the playoffs. They need a new coach but I dont think he will fire himself.

It's the Clippers dude. Even for some reason they manage to put together the greatest team of all time, they will find some reason to **** it all up.
