Re: Acie Law may have promise from Clippers?

well i wouldnt go that far, but i can say i cant stand the news that the clippers would take him at 14. Lets say we do that diaw trade and end up with some picks in the 20's....then yes, id take law no problem with a pick in the 20;s.

Re: Acie Law may have promise from Clippers?

The thing is, law probably will not start anywhere, it doesnt matter where he goes. Hart in my mind no doubt is bteter than law, first of all he already knows the offense and has proven himself in it. Law, in PG strong drafts would probablybe a second rounder....hes only being projected lottery due to the weakness of the position.

He also doesnt have history on his side. How many Sr "true" point guards have really become starters in their first few years? Jameer Nelson in 2004? ANd id pick nelson a good 10 picks ahead of picking law...and nelson went 20th in a draft that wasnt THAT strong on PG either. Look at all the other senior PG's who were drafted, most haevnt done much in their career. Most of the good PG's come out early. I dont think its a lock that law even can beat hart on the depth chart. Is that a bad thing? Not necessarily....but for a lottery pick, i think its a reach to pick someone who would ideally be your 3rd stringer. Now, were talking the 22 pick or something, lets go get him.

Im not rooting AGAINST law. Id like to see him do well, go in and win ROY...its not like id be mad at him. Im just saying, hes a 2nd round pick in a year deep with PG's, history does not look well on senior PG's, and i think 14 is too high to pick him, when you have a shot at one of the top 2 SG's in the draft at that spot. Sg's who would probably be top 5-10 in last years draft

The Los Angeles Clippers are believed to have settled on Georgia Tech freshman Javaris Crittenton at No. 14, satisfying their need for a young point guard with Shaun Livingston's future uncertain.

Dont know how credible this guy is but I hope he's right and Law falls to Miami.

Re: Acie Law

I like Javaris quite a bit, but I've heard conflicting reports that Derrick Byars might be the guy they go with.

Re: Acie Law

Yeah I heard on 570 that the Clippers were thinking about taking Byers from Vandy. He's a solid and good player, but not good enough to take at 14, maybe in the mid 20s.

Re: Acie Law

we don't need law, ewing or conroy. if we keep j. heart, diaz can be 3rd string or mobley. i agree with yam, cassell is gonna be fine, and i thoroughly belive that livi is gonna come back stronger and smarter, i know some of you won't agree, but DIAZ might be all we need. he was the basically the best player on the teams he played for. he probably has more experience then all of the pg's in this draft...my only worry is dumblevy...he drafted jermain o'neil and let him rot on the bench and now he's an all-star...that's why i speak highly of singleton and diaz...they'll probably be all-stars for somebody else...dumblevy is racist and he doesn't like russians either, just big slow unathletic goofy white boy's...dumblevy's the reason we didn't make the playoffs, and if he would have put singleton in instead of ewing, raja bell wouldn't be as popular as he is...vada

Dude, I know it's toungue-in-cheek, but Dunleavy isn't a racist. I agree that Singleton especially deserved a ton more playing time than he was given last year. He made a huge impact in his first season with the team and instead of getting an increased role he got buried on the bench for some reason. I think Sam will be okay, but we can't count on him to play 75 games per season anymore, it just isn't realistic. Hart might be a good enough back up until Livi comes back, but I don't think it would hurt to add another true PG to the roster just in case things don't work out. This team is too close to let another season go down the drain by not being prepared for the likelihood of another Cassell injury or Livingston not coming back in top form. Diaz may be the answer, I don't know. But he's still very young and has no experience leading an NBA team, and that's a very risky proposition. I like the idea of signing Brevin Knight, should he settle for the MLE, though as noted by Yam that's unlikely to happen due to the luxury tax scenario. I too think Dunleavy played a huge role in this team missing the playoffs last year, but it's more due to his stubborness in not wanting to start Corey than anything else. If he wouldn't have messed with Maggs' playing time this team probably would have had 5-7 more wins under their belts. But, that's just my opinion.
