Jackson is best friends with PG and they share agents.

Same agent s DLo and Randle in Aaron Mintz.

Reggie wasn’t coming to the Lakers despite the spin.

He’s a horrible defensive player and average on offense.

Patrick Patterson may have cost himself a roster spot after his controversial comments tonight:

That's just disgusting. That would also mean the Clips perhaps signing someone to take his roster spot.

Clippers seem to be losing a lot of games that they should be winning. Although to be fair, its normally because one or both of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are sitting. Still they seem to be having a weaker time than the Lakers at getting past easy opponents.

Kawhi Leonard starting to show signs of frustration:

I never saw this side of him with the Spurs and Toronto. He was always fun, laid-back, easy-going. Would wonder if we see more of this side if the Clippers don't perform to their high expectations.

Looks like the Lakers may be the sole NBA inhabitants of the Staples Center:

The Clippers have been planning to move for a while. They are currently in a pissing contest with the Forum over having their new arena being built in the new complex that will house the Rams and Chargers. MSG is suing everyone involved. So this is likely Ballmer's attempt to buy everything off to make the case go away.

The Battle for LA continues as the Clips have signed Joakim Noah.

Better signing than Waiters. Well in terms of not being disruptive to the team, that is.

One of the things to take notice after today is even if its a "home" game, this is always going to be a Lakers town. if it comes down to Lakers/Clips in the WCF, could be perhaps a 7-game homestand for the Lake show.

"Anything that keep the ball out of the hands of Lou Williams, Leonard, George, Shamet, and Beverley is a good thing. Give Jackson 25 minutes a night. Great. I don't think he'll be in games during the playoffs. --- Yohe"

Morris was, what, 1 for 9 vs The Lakers? That's what I was taking about. ---Yohe

They will cut down their rotations in the playoffs the deeper they get. Morris will have a role because he is a good player. He just needs time to get use to his new teammates and his role with them.

Jackson is here for depth on a team that deals with injuries, and load management. Last night, Williams was out. They also were playing a jobber. It's useful to have a guy like Jakson who helps hold the leads, which in turn lets the starts sit more Jackson was fine last night in that role.

I'm glad we didn't chase Jackson. But he's not a massive risk for the Clippers. There probably will be a number of games where he's a positive, which will help the Clippers finish 2nd or 3rd and avoid dropping to the 4th spot.
