Chris Kaman, Blake Griffin, Al-Farouq Aminu - potentially, that's a very good group. Potentially. There's that dreaded Clipper word. But they're in a good place despite missing on a mega-free agent small forward.

B-

BckCourt
Eric Gordon made the U.S. roster after most watchers put him on the bubble, a possible running start into 2010-11. But Baron Davis has to become a greater factor on offense.

C+

Defense
The Clips were 21st in shooting defense, and that was with Marcus Camby for 51 games. Now, they may start two rookies, Griffin and Aminu, with Eric Bledsoe a backup.

D

Bench
Acquiring Randy Foye and Ryan Gomes is important for depth, and re-signing Craig Smith is big for the lineup and chemistry. But depth will be determined by the development of the kids.

C-

Coaching
Vinny Del Negro had some good moments in Chicago, persevering in difficult circumstances as his job security was questioned and juggling a dysfunctional relationship with management. That's right. Good practice.

Summary

The Clippers could develop into something good... blah blah blah.... With young players filled with possibilities and ... yada yada yada... they just made a coaching change that promises new energy.

Yeah, been there, heard that. The new season will drop the basketball world off at the same place as many other years of What Could Be in Los Angeles, with the Clips moving into position to make a breakthrough. No, really.
