Most disappointing Clipper this season?

I'm going to go with Gallo for missing 41 out of 60 games with 3 separate non-surgery injuries. Still no ETA on when he will return from his hand injury.

When he plays with Tobias we look like a good team.

If it's from this season's team, I would say Patrick Beverley. He was definitely the player I was looking forward to see the most, but we lose him for the season at the beginning of season just like that. I hope we don't give up on him this off-season.

The entire team's health has been ridiculous. If I had to pick one, I'd say Gallo with his dual sprained asses and hand-slap trauma.

With no rush to bring back Gallo, Beverley or Bradley or give Boban minutes, are we secretly trying to tank to get a lottery pick?

Beverley hands down.

That was a brutal injury for us.

Blake Griffin. Had a chance to step up with Paul gone and had the worst season of his career leading to the trade.

Remember when Olawakandi want Shaq almost threw down?  Olawakandi was making fun of Shaq for throwing punches (and missing badly) when he got into it w/Barkley.

 

"I won't miss" said Olawakandi while flailing his arms around wildly to mock Shaq. 

 

 

My favorite Candi Man moment.

Beverley is the most disappointing. What's funny is Gallo has actually played and people are pissed because he's been injured more than once, but nobody seems pissed at Beverley for not playing at all due to one injury.

oops, read it wrong.  This season is definitely Beverley.  As for players playing, I'd say Dekker.  I thought he would be a little better than this

I think Wes Johnson should win this.  The guy plays pretty good one game and then completely disappears in the next game.  Most guys we can count on them getting their numbers.  This guy you could get a bunch of zeroes on any given day.

Why would you have any expectations for Wes to begin with? Hard to be disappoonted if you expect nothing.

He was playing pretty good when Blake was out injured.  Helping us win some games.  Leading the team in blocked shots.  Then he regresses to nothingness again.

PB's injury was probably a blessing for us........ If he had stayed healthy, who knows if we would have moved Griffin.

I’m just going with on the court performance. Milos has been disappointing after all the hype. His shooting is okay but his ability to handle the ball and passing isn’t up to what I expected. Of course his defense is by far the worst on the team. Blake was disappointing when here.

Wow really Tullabye? I love Milos. He had a bad month coming back from his injury, but his shot looks to be back now, and I've found his passing to be superb.

I was going to say the same thing. Second choice would be Gallo, Milos, or Pat Bev

Milos has been good. Doc just sets him up to fail as much as possible by playing him in no-defense lineups with Lou because he doesn't want any other guard to outshine Austin. It's the same reason why we haven't signed Ty Wallace to a real contract.

Gallo is the easy answer here. He barely plays and has sucked most of the time on the rare occasions when he does play. His contract is overpaid and we squandered a first-round pick by trading for him.

Dekker is a good one too, I thought he could be a rotation player for us with the chance of some upside, but he never even gets off the bench most nights.

I heard hes changing his last name to Rivers so he can get playing time.

He’s a good passer but he was touted as the best passer in the world. How many games has he had more than a handful of assists?

Kandi man should be high on the list of most hated of all time to us long time Clipper fans, but no one should deny his toughness. He was one of the few centers not to back down to Shaq.

A team with cap space don’t mind taking on the last 2 years of Gallo contract. But the clippers need to sweeten the deal by adding the Pistons #1 in it . Otherwise we are stuck with him . It’s a salary dump.

My vote is for Austin Rivers.  How long has he been in the league and he still can't make a free throw?

If you expected Austin to do anything other than suck, despite the fact that he's sucked for his entire career, that's on you.

I bet our bigs love Milos.  He always seems to get them involved.

Gallo’s 2nd year is at 21.5 and 3rd is 22.6 . No option for either . Have to pay or add a 1st to get rid of his aSs

I'm going to take injury out of it and say for the whole year it was Blake. After drilling that game winning 3 in Portland it looked like he might be a franchise player again, his drop off after that was pretty big although my favorite moment of the season was his fiery play against the Rockets. After that if you don't count injury I think a lot of guys have met or exceeded expectations.

 

I agree Milos was a bit of a let down considering the hype so he's probably it, he's just ok overall but pretty deficient in many key areas. Montrezl, Lou, Ty, Harris have all had some solid moments for us.

Pistons lose to Orlando now, yikes. Blakey with 12 points on 14 shots, is that good? Another almost triple double though so not all bad

Of course. We have their pick, that matters to me. Not rooting for or against Blake either way, but I certainly want Detroit to lose every game.

I guess but Lou gets them more involved with his lob passes. Another thing that Milos does little of.

Maybe type of injury plays a part of it.  Knee and foot injuries are no joke, but Gallo hurt his butt and now his hand.  Really, dude?  REALLY?

Lets not forget he also broke his hand during the off-season.  So that is 3 times he has been hurt since signing his contract.

Exactly. Any REAL Clipper fan should be monitoring Detroit closely, and hoping they lose as much as possible. If Blake has to perform poorly for them to lose, then any real Clipper fan would root for that to happen.

I'm not sure it's that bad.

All you have to do is find one team willing to bite on Gallo staying healthy for 2 years, because he is good when he plays.

If we can find a taker for Blake, we can def find a taker for Gallo, without having to attach another asset. It's not huge money and he still has value as a player.
