    Must admit that when I heard that song by Yo Gotti saying “It’s going down in the DM...” over that real nice beat, I first thought DM was a reference to some hard core project where some drama was going down. Peaked the interest of my yesteryear. But then found out it was about Twitter. I should have known it something tech related. Damn millennials.

    Lol. Clarkson said the females thing as a joke and it was the last thing he said as far as what motivates him. Don't read too much into it.

    But hey, I wouldn't doubt that Clarkson badly wants to stay in LA because he wants to continue chillin at Warwick on wednesdays....so I'll take whatever he's giving us right now if it helps us win, females or not.

    Warwick’s? So that’s where he’s learning his dance moves.

    From what I understand of his off court behavior (and sometimes in game), Jordan was probably very serious with his quote.

    I don’t like Clarkson. Can’t quite put my finger on why, just don’t. Watching him play is not fun, it’s grating. I didn’t sign up this season to watch Clarkson play 30+ minute games and finish 4th quarters. I thinks that’s a big part of what has me down after last game. Clarkson was supposed to be an afterthought bench scorer we looked to trade, not one of our most used players. I didn’t sign up for the gameplan of the end of the ‘14/‘15 season, that’s freakin depressing.

    Someone has to put the ball in the basket off the bench with Lou gone. He's athletic as s*** and is aggressive plus trying harder on defense. I like watching him unless of course a really bad night. Not feeling the dislike of him.

    Some players I just don’t like, their game never makes me a fan, like I said, can’t put my finger on it. I never liked Goerge Lynch or Brian Cook either.

    I don’t have a problem with him if he plays within the flow of the offense. When he does it is great and makes everyone better. Optically, it just looks better.

    I just hate when he is a black hole and dribbles for most of the shot clock. It drives me crazy!!

    I felt the same way. Couldn't stand George Lynch or Brian Cook. Yuck.

    He's not a perfect player but we are fortunate to have him right now , he's the only one who can bail our stagnant offense out in late shot clock situations and is shooting very well overall.

    Fans love criticizing the like of Lou Williams and JC but we haven't had better team players to take over their role yet .


    Luke and Ball never stepped it up last night , the loss was on them not on JC

    He is also often the one that STAGNATES our offense. I wonder which one is the more common occurrence.

    The former with the "good" Clarkson playing the Lou Williams role is more common I believe but still with too much resurfacing of the "bad" Clarkson over dribbling and not playing smart, stagnating the offense. 80-20% ? 70-30% ? 60-40% ? 2nd option?

    Do you really think there is more movement when he is on the bench ?
