    Clippers got better, but I think all the sexy names has some fans thinking they made a huge leap.

    Who knew it was the end of the world because we lost Josh freaking Smith (even though we're going to get DMo back which is a significant upgrade over him)?

    What's the defined role on the clippers? BENCHWARMER for DJ and Blake?

    He could've been a starter here but he chose to be a bench warmer for LA ? Doesn't make sense. What the heck is going on man? He was arguably our 3rd best player especially in the playoffs.

    He doesn't have a source. He's an idiot Morey-hating troll desperate for attention. Crazy he hasn't gotten banned yet

    Dmo going for 20&10 next year will settle everyone down. Relax.

    Um, we paid him 4 million to sit on the bench and twittle his butter fingered thumbs. He hardly played because he SUCKS and should've never been on the roster to begin with. That roster spot should've went to Tariq Black. Dorsey should not be in the NBA

    He will be hurt. Tired of depending on guys like this I like his game though.

    A huge leap, no. But a substantial improvement? Absolutely. Basically trading Barnes and Hawes for Stephenson, Piece, and Smoove is unquestionably much better.

    The Rockets have taken a step back. Absolutely 100% need to get a guard.

    I'm surprised but not terribly disappointed. This team probably had too many inconsistent players on the roster to truly be a favorite in the West. Brewer, TJ, Smith and maybe even Ariza are all guys who can and do look like All Stars 20% of the time on offense but hurt you at least half the time. All these guys are great being the X-factors that all good teams need but if you have more than two on your squad you're probably heading for heartbreak at their hands in the playoffs.

    My biggest concern now is we're back to being short on big bodies down low. If Morey doesn't make a move we'd better hope Dmo comes back 100% and Capela makes huge strides this summer.

    Well this really hurts frontcourt depth but hopefully improvement from Capela will pick up some of the slack.

    Clips were worse than the Rockets in FT% last year as crazy as that sounds.. guessing they're gonna be even worse next year.

    Welp....This sucks, I'm honestly so confused if anything I thought Brew was the wildcard and Smoove was a lock to return at the beginning of FA

    Black would have been on the bench too. Stop it. It was a mistake to sign Dorsey because he was talking up the space for another bench warmer? Come on now.

    I think Capela is ready to go. Looking forward to seeing him play.

    It's just amazing that somehow we managed to get even worse in the playmaking department. We really going to just trot out Harden against the world again?

    i'm glad he's gone. thanks for game 5, but still can't stand his game. he lowers the team bball iq by 20 points.

    but that clipper team though. deandre, lance and josh. oh my god that has to be the dumbest trio on an nba team in league history.

    Having a more trusted post option in DMo might help relieve some of that pressure and there's always a chance Bev steps up that part of his game but yeah, pretty much only Harden in the playmaking department.
