DOUG CHRISTIE (unemployed this season before the clippers knocked on his door) ditched out on the remainder of his 2nd 10 day contract with LA, preferring to be an unemployed castoff in the NBA wilderness rather than continue on in clipperness. Sigh/shalom, I really don’t have the words anymore, so why not let the LA times talk for me:
There was some good news for the Clippers.
The teams competing with the Clippers for the Western Conference's last playoff berth also lost Tuesday, and the Clippers still trail the Minnesota Timberwolves by half a game for the eighth spot.
The other encouraging development for Clippers fans?
Well, they won't play again until facing the Golden State Warriors on Saturday at Staples Center, and presumably they can't lose if they don't play.
Wow, I mean, this is déjà vu. This is the clippers. This is what I remember about years & years and more sad years of being a clipper fan before last year's apparently momentary lapse of ineptitude. Waiting for the end of the season to coalesce and maybe if there are enough other crappy teams, we snag that 8 spot, for the honor of getting swept by an actual contender. and those are the (again, not counting last year) banner years amid the special sauce & cheese style shit burgers. Yippee fucking kayeye.
