    This. ^

    I don't wish anything against Blake Griffin, but he's injury-prone. Beverly plays with such reckless abandon; he's out to prove himself (got a little mouthy slapping Ball around in the opener, which forced dips*** commentary from Ball's father, which I couldn't not read, which gave me brain cramps for their stupidity, but I digress), and might run pell-mell into another injury.

    If healthy, the Clips could give a good series but best case scenario they will likely be no better than 5th seed, maybe 6th. So they'd have to beat a higher-seeded team 4 of 7.

    Still, they have talent on their roster. (*cough!* *And an overpaid coach* cough!)

    Lou William is their jamal Crawford now. Both him and Bev are in the rotation with Harrell getting trash minutes, but bottom line is they're all healthy, unlike the only guy we got in the trade. Sure I know it's a long season, but do you really expect a healthy chris paul come playoff? Come on now.

    Not really the same team at all though. Besides Griffin and the prodigal son.

    Small sample size. I am not saying Minnesota isn't disappointing but it is very early to say anything.

    Yes, and that's the point of the thread. I was referring to the notion that this is not another example of the Ewing Theory.

    It's likely a poor example of the Ewing Theory, because Clips with Paul went 10-1 and 14-2 last year.

    Small sample size or not you can tel their defense is shiit and will be shiit.

    At this point I would be surprised if they were better than a top 20 defense.

    LOL at Sam Dekker getting DNP-CD when Gallo, Beverley, aren't available and Rivers has a gimpy ankle. Rookie Thornwell starting at SG.

    Dekker is so buried in Rivers bench. Some smart team will try to trade for him. Completely wasted there in LA. Not that Dekker is some great player, but as rotational player, he is solid.
