The Clippers never complain about calls. They're just looking for motivation.

Tonights predictions?


Knicks by 5+

Pistons by 8+

Golden State by 12+

OKC by 20+....but if would be awesome if Lakers steal it, but on a back to back, not expecting much.

The Clippers are a JOKE. That team has arguably the most collective talent in the NBA for one team and all you see them doing is BS. And it's not like you see that from just the players. The ENTIRE organization is filled with BS.

I agree with everything that was said in the article posted a few pages back. Never seen a team with so much talent be as lame as the Clippers. I personally think it starts with CP3. The guy came into the league with so much promise and praise, but he hasn't amounted to anything in his 10 year career. Nevertheless, you see him constantly get a pass from the media and his counterparts year after year.

When is he going to be held accountable for his shortcomings and inadequacies? When will the media finally turn on the Clippers and talk about what they really are? Which is a disappointing group of highly talented individuals all looking for individuals praise, but mask it with this facade of teamwork and camaraderie. A team that plays for eachother, does it the right way and keeps their mouth shut when the going gets tough.

It's funny, because even when the Clippers struggled for all those years, you knew what you were going to get. But it's worse this time around--Fans actually have hope, but it's just going to end up the same way.

all these talks about shoot first pg vs pass first pg made me think...can it be compare to Pocket QB vs Running QB? less than a handful of QBs that won the Superbowl as a running QB, are scoring PG the same?

LoL. You know, only he knows why he did it. I just don’t understand why he did it though.

Guess the failed run lead to the demise of him.

No more Big n Tasty commercials after that. No adidas either.

Just tattoos and Nike contract.

i truly believe that the reason why this is still going on is they have been doing it for so long that it's in-grained in them. they need a leader in the locker room, either player or coach, to step up and say enough is enough and we aren't gonna complain anymore or at least not complain about everything lol. it seems like the complaining doesn't help them and it hurts them more than anything. i'm not sure why they are so insistent on continuing this. who tf wants to be apart of organization that is known as complainers?

they gotta realize the refs are kinda their co-workers. nobody wants to hear all that crying b and people get fed up.

Clips being the most hated team is comical to me. I became a fan about a year or two ago....but as a very neutral observer, this team wasn't crying or flopping more than any other team. And yes, they do whine a lot and have a culture of it.....but other teams do it just as much.

The media narrative has ALOT to do with this. First...after Blake Griffin didn't live up to some insane projections after his outstanding rookie year, he was pegged as "soft" and someone that "didn't show up in the playoffs", "most overrated player in the league", "hasn't improved", and "all he does is dunk". These lines of thinking were false and very premature. Then the hate from Blake shifted to cp3 who people have now come to wrongfully accept as overrated. A lot of this hate came slowly in the form that he got "passes" for not having deep playoff runs. Basically, advancing one more round.

Then, there was a notion that the Clippers were "stacked", which is completely false. There's still that notion today that they are "The most stacked team in the league". This is a team that features a 38 yr old Pierce, 36 year old Crawford and Austin Rivers, Lance Stephenson and Wes Johnson as key contributors.

This has been a 2nd to almost 1st tier Western Conference team since Cp3 got there. Realistically, they've been the 3rd best team in the conference behind the Spurs and OKC...and typically...that's where they finished. This is a team with a great starting 5, and horrible bench. The narrative was if this team is so good, and cp3 is such a great PG....then there's no way this team hasn't gotten past the 2nd round. Not realizing Chris Paul or Blake Griffin aren't better than the Spurs or Kevin Durant and the Thunder.

Then there was the notion that "lob city" was just a fast paced team that couldn't beat a team grind it out team like "Memphis"....despite the fact that they best Memphis and had a good half court offense. And everybody that used to like "lob city"....now started to hate the more serious approach. now was tuned into constant talking heads calling Cp3 "Cp0"....coming up with this conference finals or you suck rhetoric...and constant vines of Cp3 and Blake flopping. You see that everyday, combined with the epic collapses last year + the meme and vine culture....and it's understandable why it's easy to hate this team. Bandwagon mindless hate to me.

Most people that I've found that hate the Clippers are either Lakers Fans, watch first take religiously, follow skip on Twitter, let Vines tell them the whole story, and rely on team stream apps to give them updates....which is about 85% of NBA fans laugh.gif.

Clips the past 4 years have been a team that's been unclutch, unlucky and tight in big moments. Has this team chocked? Yes. Should they have made a conference finals appearance by now? Maybe. But the notion that this team is "trash" and "a joke" is foolish.

how?


lakers bruh. out side of the magic years, and before that, we've only ever had serviceable pg's. fisher would never be considered 'good'...he was always 'jus aight'

even the heat, top 10 mario chalmers hardly had any usage rate.

You dont need a good pg to win, you just need good players and a solid system.

Lakers are an outlier. Heat have this guy, LeBron James. He was their pg. Even if we took those teams and let's say the Jordan bulls...STILL remains an untrue statement. Pretty much every team ever had a good pg. What you need is a GREAT player...regardless of position

Too much logic and sense in here for it to be accepted by most people in here (e.g. Freeze's post below), but repped for the effort.

Heat, Bulls, Mavs, Lakers, Rockets, the first Spurs title didnt have great pgs.

Imo there isn't any proven formula to winning championships, besides having superstars and a great defense and offense built around them.
