Yahoo draft grade... and a movie quote

83

Something for everyone in this review. John R and his cronies will love the grade, while Jax and his cronies will point to the statements valuing Baron's removal from the Clips' equation. As for me, I think both sides are right... and both are wrong... it's all relative. . . "Los Angeles Clippers, Additions: Trey Thompkins, Travis Leslie, Grade: D The only reason that this isn't an "F" is because Eric Gordon won't hate playing with Mo Williams, Blake Griffin won't have to pick up his third foul in the first half because a point guard beat Baron Davis down court, and the Clipper locker room will be a better place without Davis around. I like Baron, personally, but he had to go. Would Kyrie Irving go well here? Of course. In five years, though, I think it will all be worth it in terms of growth and influence. Thompkins and Leslie are two Georgia teammates that probably won't ever contribute anything at this level." . . For some reason, Jax and John R's antics on these pages remind me of one of my favorite movie moments.... Imagine John R standing near a cemetery in the desert with smoke wafting around him, talking to his aide ClipperChuck.... . . "You know, if I had my way, I'd send that genius son of a bitch an engraved invitation in iambic pentameter. A challenge in two stanzas to meet me alone in the desert. [Jax] in his tank and me in mine. We'd stop about 20 paces. We'd get out, we'd shake hands then we'd button up and do battle, just the two of us. That battle would decide the outcome of the war." . . .
