The Clippers played in the second-half, the "Clakers" in the 1 quarter and the "Clixers" in the 2nd quarter. After the debacle with the Warriors and the Trailblazers, now this.No wonder my grandson refuses to wear his Clipper Jacket and his Clipper cap.

If the players are focusing on "every game counts" for the sake of landing a good spot in the playoff, that sense of direction (misdirection?) is definitely gone.....lost.

Right now, i don't know where the weakness is ...weaknesses are..the players, the coaches, the GM, the bench, the injuries, the offense, the defense, the rebounding, the awful shooting, the want for a small forward, the fans, the inconsistent Lance, the aging Jamal and Pierce, are we just "unlucky"(where before we were "cursed") or all of the above?

Everybody was praising Doc when he made those ridiculously economical acquisitions and the prediction for the season was rosy. Now it is not uncommon to hear Doc being blamed (even many in the Clipsnation!) for getting all those new players that as of now he could not make to function and he envisioned.

Even Blake is shouting loud and clear "change" after only 13 games played not to mention the exchanges of "pleasantries" in the locker room between Josh Smith and an unnamed asst. coach after yesterday's loss to the the Raptors! Who knows who else were involved?

Just wondering what will give in?

This "trial and tribulation" could be too much even for a Doc to handle and what does it make Ballmer?

Or is really too early to panic as somebody suggested?
