Re: Clippers Blow It Again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not that upset at the pick. We weren't going to address any serious needs with the 14th pick anyways. What'd everyone expect? At least we drafted better than the Lakers IMO.

Re: Clippers Blow It Again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone expected i think the clippers to pick someone who could help the team now and in the future, let alone hometown favorite.

Lakers i think drafted better than the clippers since we know jackson likes tall Pg's. Remember they dont have smush anymore, javaris was the perfect pick for them with what was available.

Meanwhile clippers probably could have picked 7 other guys who would have been better for the team than thornton at 14.

It's funny, out of all the Clippers sites I read, this is the only one that has disappointed members. Not implying anything, it's just interesting. Everyone else seems to think Thornton was a steal at 14.

Re: Clippers Blow It Again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do they anywhere else say how in the world he is a steal when out of everyone they could have picked, he fits in the least? (barring trade of course).

Re: Clippers Blow It Again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

well thorton was rated pretty high...top 10 lottery pick was were he was placed right after the ncaa tourney...

if nothing else, thorton should provide veteran leadership to the younger guys on the team, he is around 30, right??? :biggrin:


when i think about it, maybe thorton could be our josh howard...

Re: Clippers Blow It Again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But again, barring trade where is his minutes going to come from. His drafting already has cost us cheaper, better player in singleton. So hes going to get singletons minutes. Big wow, he barely plays. Where else is his minutes going to come from

Re: Clippers Blow It Again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You've gotta trade Maggette, then trade Thomas, then let Singleton walk, then bench Qross, then let Korolev walk....

And then finally, Thornton will be the right pick. SIX SMALL FORWARDS, need i say more?

Re: Clippers Blow It Again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After the first 3 picks, Thorton, was BY FAR the most nba ready player, he has all-rookie first team type talent, I can't see why you guys are mad. Nick Young, the guys a bum, he's a "streaky chucker" he wasn't gonna look to pass, or anything, he was just gonna get that ball and throw it up there, which can hurt a team, more than help them. He's also a bad defender, and bad rebounder, he's just a streaky scorer, anybody knows about J.R Smith?

We've been the worst 3-point shooting team in percentage, makes & attempts for about half a decade now... We need a guy who's speciality is just to hang out and chuck it up there so badly. Elton Brand gets double teamed constantly, Maggette has to get by at least 3 guys sitting in the lane every time, Kaman loses the ball from opposing guards who aren't afraid of leaving their man.

We've got 5 Small Forwards already (including a 20 year old #11 pick) and two really old guards without a single reliable backup for either one. Thornton will get little, if any playing time here, he wasn't even that great against college kids & has no upside at all.

Everyone on this board was infatued[sp?] with Nick Young, which is the reason why they assume Thornton was a bad pick, which he certainly wasn't. I'm shocked he wasn't selected before us. Thornton is athletic, but also strong enough to be able to play PF at times. Sure, we might have a handful of SF's, but Korolev won't be back, neither will Singleton, so that leaves u with three other SF's in Thomas, Maggette and Ross. Ross and Maggette can play both wing positions, so they are versatile, as Thomas can play PF and even C at times, so he also is versatile. Thornton can play PF, along with SF, so he also is versatile. Sure, we did not fill our biggest need, but why go with your biggest need when you have someone such as Thornton available? We still have a long ways to go in the offseason, who's to say we don't acquire a legit PG? Franchise could be a possibility if bought out, Steve Blake can also be a possibility, and is better then anyone we could have drafted at the moment which says a lot. This was an awesome pick.
