Watched another frustrating game, and now the Clippers are 8-23. I think its safe to say that this season, which started with good promise, is now a lost season. So now what? How do we move forward from here.
I'm almost sure that 80-90 percent of you will disagree with me here, as you will automatically say to can Dunleavy. I'm a supporter of Dunleavy and here's why:
- I think we already have good players on hand, they just haven't had time to build chemistry and get to know each other. Remember Davis was injured much of preseason, and he and Dunleavy are still clashing. I think they still need more time to gel and build that chemistry.
- I may have given up on the season but I will not give up on this team. I want to see how this team plays when everyone is healthy and then I can make my judgment. I"m talking about Kaman, Zach, Camby on the frontcourt and BD running the plays. There's actually a good chance this might not work out, but I will defer judgment until we see how it evolves. It might translate to a few losses or so, but as long as I can see improvements or directions of improvement I will be content.
So in short, I'm pretty resigned to having a lost season for the Clippers, but am looking forward to a PRODUCTIVE season....this means the development of Thornton and Gordon, opportunities for PDavis and DJ, and once everyone is healthy, to see if or when the chemistry will develop.
