FLAW-LESS “Throwback” #BlakeGriffin Jersey • sz XL • $20 Shipped $15 Local
This one is obvious to me. From 2011-2016 the trio of Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, and DeAndre Jordan have wracked up a total of 10 Allstar appearances, 6 consecutive playoff appearances, 5 50 win seasons and a win-loss record of 313-163. Individually, Jordan added 2 TRB titles to his resume in LA and Chris Paul added 2 AST and 3 STL titles. They brought to relevancy to a struggling clippers team. You can also take in account that the Clippers currently don’t have any retired numbers. #lobcity#cp3#jordan#blakegriffin#la#lac#laclippers#nbaopinions#nbamemes#korzembanation#kot4q#followforfollow
Feb. 9, 2014: The exact moment the high/low watermark of "The Process" was reached. Masterminded by Sam Hinkie, then Sixers GM and President of Basketball Operations, the much talked about "Process" was once just a (not-so) wild idea to lose now in order to win later. Other teams had practiced "tanking" before but never treated it as a science. In Hinkie, the Sixers found their Nikola Tesla. In Philly, this idea that a team would be losing on purpose - and do so in such an overt manner - was met with much resistance...at first. I can remember where I was and what I was doing when this happened. It wasn't just that the Sixers were down 40 midway through the 2nd quarter. The Sixers were on pace to lose like 160-60. And so I hereby declare the very bottom of The Process to have been reached in the exact moment Rookie of the Year Michael Carter-Williams' pass/shot the ball off the backboard, triggering this unreal sequence of peak-Lob City plays, which happened on back-to-back possessions. The THUD that MCW created by dilly-dallying that ball off the backboard still reververates to this day. This was in the midst of a record-tying losing streak where the Sixers lost 26 games in a row; they broke that record by losing 28 games in a row TWICE in the two seasons that followed. They were so bad here, though, that they couldn't even break the record of 26 L's in a row (held by the 2010-11 Cavs). Looking at the Clippers and Sixers now, though...talk about a reversal of fortunes.
