Jordan Hill re-signs with Lakers: 2 years, $18 million

jordan-hill

The Lakers just need players. Just bodies. Period. They have depth at point guard now with the re-signing of Jordan Farmar and the trade for Jeremy Lin. Steve Nash is on his last legs, so I don’t know how much he really brings to the table to be honestly truthful. 

One thing’s for sure, the Lin trade and the Hill extension are using up what’s left of their cap space pretty quickly. And there’s still a lot of wholes to fill. Nash and Kobe Bryant have really turned out to be horrible contracts as they’re sucking up just so much cap space. Mitch Kupchack better have some novel ideas.

L.A. Clippers “Lob City” Ascension Comes Slowly

The Los Angeles Clippers will always be defined as the second team in the nation’s second largest market. They share a home (Staples Center) with their NBA brethren Lakers and the Kings of the NHL.

Take a look at the banners and retired numbers displayed in the upper reaches of Staples: Lots of Lakers and Kings stuff, no Clippers stuff. Or go through the statue plaza at the main entrance. There are monuments to Laker legends Magic JOhnson, Chick Hearn, and Jerry West. The Kings have Wayne Gretzky in bronze; right by him is boxer Oscar de la Hoya.

The Clippers have……no one. That’s why you have to remember change comes slowly. With Chris Paul and Blake Griffin LAC has the best inside-outside combination in the game. But they also have a rough history to overcome.
