    Why we only have these after a player leaves or is traded?? I just wanna appreciate my guy Clint for playing like a man, and creating his own presence in the paint. It's really fun to watch him play with this group and get better. I hope we keep him as a foundation with Harden, who's helping maximize his potential, for the rest of his career. I guess maybe I just wanna give my guy his flowers while he can still smell them.. wow now I'm depressed.. especially since honestly we prolly will trade him since hes only an asset. :( his stock is sky high. man I'm getting sadder as I keep typing and reality sets in fast. he could be gone at the break knowing Morey? :eek:

    Aright anyway, thank you to Clint for putting the work in and I wish him much success. He's a funny guy too. fresh young man. Making a name for himself in this league, coming from a foreign land. thousands of miles away, like La Flame. Emerging to a current role of: A starting center for an NBA contending team.

    He’s soft and gets punked in the paint a lot.

    I get it.. you're a Lakers fan, but we're not on your side. You guys have nothing on the Utah franchise. They have positive basketball in their future... you do not.

    The Ringer appreciates Capela...
    https://www.theringer.com/nba/2018/1/16/16897496/houston-rockets-la-clippers-fight-locker-room

    Sherman: For me, it’s the inclusion of Clint Capela as the diversion to knock on the front door.

    Ryan: SWISS, SWISS, BISH. TM JUSTIN VERRIER.

    Sherman: It means there was actual scheming as to the most effective way to break into the locker room.

    Uggetti: Clint Capela is one of our generation’s greatest pacifists, apparently.

    Haley O’Shaughnessy: For me, it’s imagining how it came up that Clint should go distract the Clippers.

    Ryan: I think it means Capela is polite!

    Concepcion: That Gerald Green was involved despite being a Rocket for 20 days.

    Sherman: It’s like how the Allies tricked the Germans into believing the D-Day landing was coming at Calais.

    Verrier: There’s a chance that Capela just wanted to visit Sam Dekker.

    Ryan: PARDON ME, WOULD YOU HAPPEN TO HAVE SOME LEMON-LIME GATORADE, AND WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE THESE HANDS?

    Isaac Lee: The Swiss are always “neutral.”

    Concepcion: Gerald was ready to rock as soon as that contract went guaranteed.

    Ryan: That’s the funny thing, right? Even though Green was on the team for about three weeks, most of these guys know each other really well. Half of them have played together, or grew up together (lot of L.A. dudes), or hate Blake together.

    Sherman: Was the plan for Capela to infiltrate the locker room, or was he sheer decoy?

    The tradition is you make this when they get traded, don’t be the guy that attempts to change tradition.
