Los Angeles Clippers
Welcome to “Pretty Much Screwed,” our definitive guide to the upcoming NBA season. This team-by-team preview details why it’s probably not your favorite team’s year. Now we discuss the Clippers, a team that is finally out from under the shadow of the Lakers but can’t escape our doubts.
It’s September, so you know what that means: costume party time. Actually, NBA stars will be playing real games again (hooray!) on Halloween, so they need to get their costuming on early. DeAndre Jordan’s choice was… interesting.
Behold The Three-Team Trade Between Clippers, Bucks, Suns Involving Caron Butler, Eric Bledsoe, J.J. Redick

There are six — kind of five, but we’ll say six — remaining coaching vacancies in the NBA. The season is still going on, but six positions have already been filled, and the remaining six might beat the end of the NBA Finals considering the glacial pace of these playoffs.

You know when you’re hot and you feel like you can’t miss? That’s what Joey Crawford felt at the end of the Clips Griz game, except with ejecting star players. “I am the law!” Judge Dread once said, channeling Crawford. Everybody in club gettin’ T’s after the jump.
Halftime shows are the most American thing in the world, behind fire engines and the haymaker punch. Last night, ESPN Radio’s Vern and Gary played “The Ribs” at halftime. No one passed, KC dry rub actually kicked Gary Parish to the ground, and fans ate one of the costumed men after the game. On the bright side, Memphis whupped Dunk City 104-83.
Perhaps you’re familiar with the concept of Blake Griffin dunking the ball — he’s something of a prodigy at doing it. And if you think Blake doesn’t know how synonymous he is with the “dunk,” check out this breakaway slam against the Lakers last, in which Blake looks to be going for a lay-up, only to remember: “Oh, wait, I’m Blake Griffin. I dunk!” Video after the jump.
