    we should play players who can boxout opponents regardless of their overall skills from now on.

    1) p davis, tim thomas, and kaman needs to boxout better
    2) thomas is playing all by himself, he doesn't seem to pass the damn ball
    3) where are baron and mike t on D? they can't be so bad in D that they can't guard beno?

    if kaman toughened up, i think we would be fine. but he refuses to.

    he needs to lift weights, box out and dunk the ball. i dont even get why that has to be mentioned for a professional basketball player.

    gordon needs to get more minutes now. cuttino is not good.

    i agree if are many focus is defense that turn into offense then we should have the best defensive players in the game.

    alot of Thomas shots can in rythm, he had alot of open looks. i still dont like the fact that all we can do is shoot jumpers. what i also dont understand is why R Davis doesnt cut to the basket when he has the ball, he is not just a shooter.

    they played defense on him but we all have to remember that he was their first option, he had to score everything was on him. this was one of those times where Q Ross would have come in handy. i dont know why since our best defender Mobley wasnt put on him to try to stop him from scoring.

    i agree these of something that Kaman needs to do more. i dont think he needs to toughen up he has the ability to play like that but he doesnt. he is a weird dude. the team as a whole has a problem boxing out which make no since because Kaman and Camby are two of the leagues best rebounders.

    i know these games are getting bad to watch. all the moves made this off season was suppose to give us a new start but we still look like the same old Clippers. we need to go on a winning streak badly.

    As stupid as it may sound, I think we need to start playing Ricky Davis. He is a streaky shooter. When he is hot, he plays like he did last night. When he gets cold, he gets really cold like he was in the previous games. He is hot now though so lets ride it out.

    Thats what I was saying. He needs to be the first one off our bench while he is hot.

    here is an article about last night's game.

    About last night
    By Ramona Shelburne on November 13, 2008 3:06 PM | Permalink | Comments (1) | ShareThis
    I've been wondering, as I'm sure a lot of folks have through the Clippers atrocious start, how long it would take for them to start getting frustrated. Really frustrated. The first six losses were tough, but I think everyone was being patient, knowing that it's going to take time for this team to figure itself out after all the offseason turnover, injuries, and the rough, early season schedule of opponents.

    I'd go in the locker room after games and while guys weren't exactly happy, they weren't depressed either.

    Yesterday was a little different though. The locker room cleared out FAST after the game. Tempers were short, emotions high.

    That was what guys in the NBA call a ``bad loss.'' Teams have them all the time, and you can survive with five or six of them in a season. You just have a lot less room for error after a 0-6 start.

    As for whether there is a rift between Baron and coach, I have to say, I really haven't seen anything major. If anything, I think each guy has gone out of his way to make the arrangement work. Though it should be noted that Mike and Baron do have pretty different styles.

    Coach is constantly complimenting Baron's abilities, attitude and leadership. He recognizes that Baron is the face of his franchise for the next five years, and it's way too early for him to risk alienating him.

    Baron has never openly vented to any of the regular beat reporters about any frustrations with Dunleavy, though he does acknowledge all the time that it's taking a while for this team to develop an identity and flow.

    After the game, Davis downplayed the notion of a rift between himself and Dunleavy. Essentially he acknowledged some stylistic issues, but saying that it was something they were working on and that he was wiling to keep trying.

    ``It's definitely a challenge, but at the same time it's something I'm willing to continue to grasp,'' Davis said. ``This is a different system than where I came from. I just have to continue to study and make sure I continue to do what he wants me to do out there as a point guard.''

    I asked a few guys in the locker room about the situation, just to get a gauge on things and most said any frustrations were just with the situation the team is in.

    Said Ricky Davis, who is one of Baron's closer friends on the team, ``I think it's just the way we started. Starting the way we started is bad,'' Ricky Davis said.

    ``When you lose (six) in a row, if anybody is happy they're in the wrong profession. Everybody's mad because everybody wants to win. There's a lot on coaches' plate, there's a lot on Baron's plate. But I think we're fine.''

    So here's my read on it. Everyone's frustrated. Everyone is trying to fix it and figure it out.

    It's especially hard on Baron, because he's not yet playing at the level he knows he can and a big reason for that is because he and the rest of the team are still learning each others moves and Dunleavy's system.

    But Baron has a compelling interest in making this work. This is his hometown. He doesn't want to get a bad reputation on his home turf. Nor does he want to lose a lot.

    But eight games into the season is way to early to start throwing in the towel, pointing fingers or casting blame. If we're having the same conversation in February, then things might get juicy.
