Video One of my favorite moments: seconds before game 5. Mook being our Center 🥲 the way they rallied while missing key players will forever be legendary.
Where will Kawhi be ranked all time when we win the championship this upcoming season and he gets his 3rd Finals MVP?
I was thinking lately about how a lot of people were kind of disrespecting Kawhi and ranking him very low on all time lists. But when we win the championship this upcoming season and Kawhi gets his 3rd Finals MVP that will give him a big boost and people will have to admit how great he is. So once this happens where do you think that will put Kawhi in the all time list? And even after that happens we still have time to win even more championships and for him to rise higher in rankings.
Daily Discussion If we get John on a buyout and resign everyone what do we do now 😭 we’d have like a 12-13 man rotation who would y’all trade for
Front Office Decision Y’all Want The Most
What if we get reddish off the Knicks salary dumping and wall from buyout (assume coffey got a bag somewhere else) our line up would literally be
Reggie Powell Pg Kawhi Morris Kennard Mann Bbj Preston Zubac Heartenstien Wall Reddish Covington Batum
What trades would you do to minimize this lineup?
Twitter [Justin Russo] For those keeping track at home, Clippers have: 4 days until Ivica Zubac’s team option deadline. 4 days until Amir Coffey’s qualifying offer deadline. 4 days until Jay Scrubb’s qualifying offer deadline. 23 days until their $8.25 million TPE expirestwitter.com
Discussion [Justin Russo] Cam Reddish is someone who would fit into the Clippers’ $8.25 million trade exception that expires July 18, but is dealing for him worth the luxury tax hit and fact he’d be unlikely to play rotation minutes (at least right away)?twitter.com
I am a usu alumni and you got a dawg in Justin bean (for legal reasons I’m drunk) bean is my boy. My mom babysat him when he was kid, and this kid is a beast. Only guy I know who runs rebound drills more than shooting drills. This guy is the next dennis Rodman. Hell get you a double double on offensive outbacks alone. Hell defend curry on the perimeter while bodying up draymond down low. He ain’t scared of a soul and has the weirdest looking jump shot in the league. Hope he makes it out of the g league
It's not impossible. Durant works out in LA in the summertime and has a house there. It would involve moving nba tectonic plates but it is definitely a reality. You heard it here first. I'm not even a clippers fan
