The Clippers tweeted an awkward Ďthank youí to DeAndre Jordan before he officially left
I guess Lob City is over?

Clippers are practically assured of being the Pacific Division bottom dweller next season...

Imagine Deandre on that Boston team? Formidable.

Why? Deandre is a liability in my eyes. Canít hit free throws canít stretch the floor. Feels like he can be explored too easily.

The free throws arenít as big of a deal now that the rules have been changed to discourage intentional fouling. And he doesnít shoot a huge number of them anyway.

Also the Golden State Warriors are after him now.

Yes he did. Shows you what his agenda is (money over winning). He could have gone to a contender.

I thought he lived in Dallas. But after what happened before Iím surprised the two sides are willing to come together so easily. There was a lot of anger at the time and I doubt the fans are as thrilled about him signing there.

Reportedly, his one year salary is less than what he would have made if he'd opted in with the Clips. He'll make out in tax savings but the truth is he just wanted out of there.

I think DJ and CP3 both wanting to bail plus signing Blake to a max deal and then trading him a few months later are just signs the team culture hasn't improved under Ballmer's ownership.

R.I.P. Lob City. Welcome back Sob City.

Not sure you can blame all this on Ballmer, remember Jerry West is an Advisor, he may have some master plan brewing...

Not blaming him just saying the environment hasn't improved under him.
