Can the Clipper Curse be Reversed this Off-Season?


Baron Davis and Chris Kaman

Their hopeful missing piece didn’t play a single minute.  They fired their head coach and general manager.  Once again, the Clippers were a non-factor in the Western Conference.  This off-season L.A.’s other team has a chance to make a splash with a ton of cap space and another lottery pick.  But can this haunted franchise finally reverse the Clipper Curse?

’09-’10 Season in Review:

For a change, it seemed as if fortune was finally on the Clippers side last season.  They won the draft lottery and the services of sure-fire top pick Blake Griffin.  However, Griffin did not even take the court as he suffered a season-ending knee surgery, adding to the theory of the Clipper Curse.  That injury quickly dashed the once promising playoff hopes as the Clips suffered through another losing season.  On the bright side, Chris Kaman posted one of his most productive seasons as a pro while second year shooting guard Eric Gordon put together a second straight solid season.

Now L.A.’s red-headed step child enters a crucial off-season with only six players under contract and no head coach or general manager.  The Clips do have a lottery pick and about $24 million in cap space to spend.  The only problem is the stereotype of the Clippers being a losing franchise might deter some of the marquee free agents from heading west.
