I believed the Clips have the best chance to beat us this year. But it looks like I was looking for something that was never there. Kawhi karma is a bish and as long as he is there , bad luck will follow them.

Silly talk about the Clips. They went from having an average coach (on a good day) to a worse coach. They will also most likely lose some talent. Lastly, PG is a puss and if they don't off him, they will fall short again and then KL will bounce.

Did the Clippers just panic because they thought the Rockets were going to sign Lue? Maybe I’m way off, but I got that vibe. If I’m right, then the Clippers are even more dysfunctional than I thought.

it was reported a couple of days ago that Lue was the Clips leading candidate, but they still wanted to interview other people.
The Rockets maybe forced them to be a little quicker - but Lue was apparently their first choice as far back as Monday

I think Lue is a worse coach than Doc. Doubt he'd take 2018-19 Clippers to playoffs which Doc did. But he might not let players have their way unlike Doc who was too lenient towards prima donnas.

Ty Lue does not strike me as the guy to step in as a vocal leader for the Clips, which is something they need from either their stars (which won't happen) or from their coach. He's not an X's and O's guy either. If they didn't rally behind Doc, I don't know why they'd be different for Lue.

Ty Lue thanks Steve Ballmer for contributing to his bank account....
He's making bank in his post playing career.

Lebron set up Lue for life with a title. Look at Doc Rivers. He will never be unemployed and same for Frank Vogel now.

Get out of the city? He should take his own advice being a Clipper fan in LA.

A month earlier than that... "Lakers are interested in signing Doc away from the clippers." Lol things sure changed in 1 year

Lebron made it a point to beat the Clippers the last 2 times they played to show them that even when playing at less than 100% the Lakers were going to be a problem for them

It would have been satisfying as hell to knock them out of the playoffs but alas the Clippers got whopped by some chicken nuggets


Well said... woulda been so sweet to whip the clippers azz

What a horrible decision, for 5 years too? I guess there wasn't much candidates but they better get some leadership in that building in some form because imo all they did was slightly downgrade in coaching so far.

And btw most Laker fans weren't scared of the Clips anymore towards the end of the season, they just matched up really well with us and would have been tough but I fully believed we would have beat them especially in the bubble when mr. AD and Lebron were fully awake.

Yo, Ty Lue is not a bad pick but I was expecting ballmer to make a big splash after scapegoating Doc (appropriately I guess tho Kawhi/PG choking was they own doing)... like a Phil out of retirement or some crazy deal with Spoelstra or even Pat Riley. Lue not gonna repair the bad blood between PatBev/Montrezl/Lou vs teacher pets Kawhi/PG. they be one of the favorites but not like last summer, their roster need repair, they have no bigs to handle us, Denver, Nurkic/Whiteside/Collins. Anyway, they still good but reality > good on paper
