    It did have issues. Olshey had us so weak up front that Ed Davis was The Man. Olshey thought Zach was an able replacement after a bad rookie year. Just one dumb decision after another, for a decade now.

    In addition to his forward duties, Nance is 3rd option at center and he is better than Ed.

    Bringing Ed Davis in in the first place surely broke that string?

    I know most don't have ESPNInsider, but they had some poll questions with us in the results......

    To be better, they only need to be the 6th best team in the west..

    Kawhi is a tool. No personality. This is a monster day for the Clippers franchise. But this is the kind of stuff you get with mercenaries. PG is only excited when he's sending pics of his junk to teammates significant other. Looks like the other power shakers were the same. Bunch of stiffs. I'm a hard rocker to the core, but even i like "The Walker" by Fitz and the Tantrums.

    Well we would be, if Olshey had improved the roster in a significant way. Running it back is some folks idea of a good strategy, just not mine. I'd rather swing for the fences and strike out, than bunt for a single and get picked off at 1st base...again.

    Been playing ball or around it my whole life. It ain’t always about the numbers FAMS. And YES Gobert is THAT much better at defense than Kanter.

    We win 10 fewer games last season without Kanter bailing us out. We will miss that this season.

    Unless we don't need him to bail us out. The idea is, other bigs might be able to fill the same bailout role, be it health or newcomers.
