We need less than we profess.

This is just some perspective: With two players on the Clippers averaging 22+ ppg., we are in a much better position than most teams. In fact, when you total the top five scorers for each team the Clippers only come behind Miami, New York and Golden State, and the latter two coming from teams that actually forbade the word "defense" to be used while during company time. 

What the Clippers need now is not another dynamic scorer, but more defense as a team and chemistry as a whole; that means time played together. Their defense they can acquire from continual progression, change in team policies & procedures, or from adding personal that is adept to defending.

This team has the players that just need more time playing together to increase cohesion. Research the history of most successful teams and you will find that the majority increased in success with more hours spent together on the court (and even off the court).  This Clipper team truly can get away making one medium-grade move with perhaps a smaller grade move, they just need to continue playing together and determine that defense be a part of their heritage.

 

*interesting note: Did you know that Al-Faroug Aminu, in one year of salary, made more than DeAndrre Jordan has in his entire 3 year NBA career? Do you think he notices that when it comes time to negotiate his contract?
