    Default Contender/Pretender - Vol. 12 - Los Angeles Clippers

    Any thoughts on the Clips? What do the need to work on? Who do they need to acquire? Are there any chances that they will contend for a playoff spot?

    Starters:

    Marko Jaric - PG
    Kerry Kittles - SG
    Corey Maggette - SF
    Elton Brand - PF
    Chris Kaman - C

    Bench:

    Lionel Chalmers - G
    Shaun Livingston - G
    Josh Moore - C
    Mikki Moore - F-C
    Mamadou N'diaye - C
    Zeljko Rebraca - C
    Quinton Ross - G
    Bobby Simmons - F-G
    Chris Wilcox - F

    Coach: Mike Dunleavy

    Looks like a downgrade from last uear on paper, but seeing how Kittles is a better shooter than q-tip, it might work in their favor.

    I'll say 37 wins and the 8th pick in the lottery.

    Yeah - this is just the endless darkness. Talent-wise they look good enough to challenge for the playoffs. But they're still the Clips.

    They had a decent draft... but by the time Livingston is ready to contribute, they will have gotten rid of any talent that they once had and will propagate the cycle of acquiring draft picks...

    Indeed he is. However, I have a feeling that they will do better than expected. I say the get the 8th seed in the Play offs, but lose in the first round.

    I think the biggest problem is, they don't have a good centre. I'm sorry, but Kaman just ain't that great. The one bright spot I see on the bench is Mikki Moore, but then again I haven't heard of most of the others - perhaps we also have a problem with bench depth?

    Still, I have to agree: They'll always be the . ...Dammit.
