Goodbye, Lob City


The Clippers will finally receive its first rework since the Griffin-Jordan-Paul-Redick era could not really put their best foot forward and win a title. J.J. Redick signed a one-year $ 23 million contract with the Philadelphia 76ers, in which Doc Rivers will miss the services of the shooter. Jamal Crawford was shipped to the Hawks, again, Rivers lost a veteran playmaker and 6th man awardee, who comes off the bench and stabilizes the second units. So how do the Clippers look like after attempting to re-shape the franchise after the heartbreak lineup era?


First, let’s take a look at the Clippers’ roster. In the trade that shipped Paul to the Rockets, the Clippers acquired Patrick Beverley, Lou Williams, Sam Dekker, and other assets. The Clippers did lose their star-guard but were exchanged with, a defensive-stopper/playmaker in Beverley, the veteran-scoring 6th man off the bench in Williams, and a young wing prospect in Dekker. Adding to this, Gallinari was also traded to the Clips for a three-year deal worth $ 63 million. Gallinari played well as a starter for the Denver Nuggets and definitely adds depth to this evolving lineup. Wait, the Clippers weren’t done. The last addition to the bulldozed roster is European Milos Teodosic who was considered one of the best non-NBA players in the world.


Frankly, I found this change odd and finally-it-happened incident. Remember a year ago? Griffin and Paul ‘hostaged’ Jordan in his home in Dallas, Texas to allegedly avoid him from signing with the Mavericks? And now, Paul himself walks away from him just like that. After that, it marks the end of Lob City--where we’ll only have memories of the countless alley oop tosses from either Paul or Griffin to a leaping Jordan. In another sense, this restructure is much needed and about time this happened. The Lob City era of the Clippers, which did make the playoffs the past couple of years, were still disappointing. I’m not sure if they were only infected with bad luck when Griffin injured his toe in the playoffs or when Jordan was also injured the year before, and on both of those injury-plagued playoff run, they lost in the first round. The Clippers are very Clippers-y. It's about time for a change and this change is for the better.


Don’t fret on this year's re-shaped Clippers. Logged with 43.5 wins on sportsbooks, which ranked below the top-10 teams next year, could be because of the changes that are about to happen and we are advising to place an under on total wins for the Clips. Health and synergy are always an issue with them, and even with the changes that happened, the issue still might be there.
