Last Friday was the Clippers Select a Seat function. It's the annual "party" where season ticket holders get to check out available seats for next season and possibly move to a different spot. It's pretty inane when you think about it, but when your season ends in mid April it's nice having some Clipper related function going on.
After we got our seats we were on our way out when I spotted Andy Roeser. Here are some of the main things that were said:
* I told him that as a STH, I didn't care that the #1 pick was traded away and that I wasn't upset (we all have our opinions on the trade, I know). Roeser said that when the trade was made they knew that there was a chance that that could have happened but that they were willing to take the 2.8% chance. Also, he said that over a month ago Kyrie Irving was #5 on their board but with all the players dropping out he defaulted to #1.
* I asked him about the Minnesota pick and whether he'd trade it for the right piece. He said, and I quote, "Absolutely for the right piece. Does the right piece mean an aging Grant Hill? No. Does it mean for a 37 year old Steve Nash? No. Does it mean for Chris Paul? Absolutely, yes."
* When I asked about the 3 spot he said the team is "really, really active" in looking at players in free agency or via trade.
* Andy Roeser was wearing the same blazer from when Blake was drafted #1. He opened the inside and showed it to us (kind of weird?). He said that he needed to get EJ's number on the other side because, "Our team is built around them."
Lastly, to the fan that was wearing Blake All-Star jersey with sunglasses on (we were inside, guy), you blew it. I was talking about good, vital information and you came over and started to talk about how you took a picture with Andy last year. It ruined our conversation and my ability to get information. No one cares about your picture, guy. Way to ruin it.
Anyways, that's as much as I could get out of him. Sure it isn't much but with nothing else happening on the LAC end (unless Kaman's tweets defending his gun pictures count) I thought I'd share.
