At this point in the offseason, the Clippers shouldn’t be in full-out panic mode, but they should be a bit worried. Recent sources and reports indicate that the organization is blaming Chris Paul and Blake Griffin for the fire of Vinny Del Negro. That’s a little bit uncalled for, don’t you think? Now, CP3 is angry with the Clippers. Of course, he hasn’t said if he’s going to re-sign with them or not, as tensions are very high, but one can only assume that this is going to influence his decision to re-sign or not.
Well, understanding that uncomfortable situation, one can only imagine that the whole fan base is worried, and that it’s going to be a bit tough to cope with the fact that Paul, a guy who completely changed the franchise, may not be there next year. The Clippers could easily make the playoffs without Paul, there’s no doubt about that. The unfortunate part, however, is that they’re not going to be contenders without him. Clipper nation has been waiting for a championship, and the best point guard in the game today gave them a little bit of hope when he came over in a trade.
Fortunately for the Clippers, they’re still the frontrunners for Paul and there are many perks of staying on the team.
