I think everyone here is getting ahead of themselves with the whole 2010 thing. Yeah we now have a lot of cap space after trading Randolph and our future is looking bright. But we should worry about how to improve this season instead of the one after. When I read the comments and see most of you guys talking about our 2010 plan, I wonder "what 2010 plan?" cause really our future revolves around EJ and Blake right now. Instead of dreaming that one day, Lebron James or Dwayne Wade is going to be in a Clippers uniform, which they probably won't, we should discuss how to strengthen what we already got for this season.
I honestly can see a future in the playoffs this season if Blake Griffin lives up to the hype, Eric Gordon continues to improve, DJ and Mike Taylor start living up to their potential, Baron Davis become the team leader he was back in Golden State, and we are not hit with the injury bug like the last several years. We have a strong lineup this year with the subtraction of Zach Randolph, and I think we can be serious playoff contenders.
And yeah, I don't really mind the 2010 talk, but we should be focusing on the now instead of the future. Just my little 2 cents
