    I didn't know the Clippers would even entertain offers?

    Yea he isn't very good anymore. He can still get hot and win you some games, but he will shoot you out of 3X as many. The series against us, he was absolutely pathetic. In fact he was terrible in both series. Finished the playoffs with a 36% FG and 24% from 3. That is really really bad especially when you take into account that he also attempted 13 FGs per game and 5 3s per game. Really inefficient, and still chucking away.

    JR Smith is still unemployed. Is anyone going to sign him?

    He is the kind of guy that has absolutely no conscience. In the same mold of JR Smith and Nick Young.

    They will take bad shots no matter which team and who they are playing for or with.

    He is very similar to the type of players like Josh Smith.

    In this quarter he could make some amazing plays to put your team in a run and either create a huge comeback to blow out your opponents.

    But then next quarter he will take 10 terrible shots in a row and also has 7 TOVs worse than Lin.

    In terms of shooting yes. And to be fair to you, that is what my original post was alluding to.

    But Josh Smith can still give you defense, rebounds, and can actually run some offense occasionally for his teammates.

    The only offensive plays Young, Crawford, and Smith will run for their teammates are potential offensive rebound putbacks off of their misses.

    As far as making things interesting, id love to see the Heat pick up Crawford. Not sure what they'd offer outside of draft picks, but he gives them a legit playmaker off the bench which they've lacked for the past few seasons. Adding depth behind that strong starting five would just add to the increasingly interesting (relatively so) Eastern Conference.

    This type of players are the typical low basketball IQ players.

    To some extent, they are actually pretty gifted players which they are somehow pretty good on certain area, but the sad situation is : they do not understand basketball is a team sport and they often will make some very dumb decisions.

    Josh Smith looks like he can contribute more on the floor than the likes of Crawford and JR, but it doesn't mean he is smarter than them, its basically mean that physically, he is more gifted.

    Same can be said to a player like Kanter, whose gifted with size and decent offensive skills, but then again, he is also a very poor basketball player in terms of achieving the goal - to win as a team.
