Clippers Game Results (Part 11: 1981 vs 1973)

(11) 1981 San Diego Clippers (36-46) vs. (32) 1973 Buffalo Braves (21-61)

The rookie year of McAdoo…Let’s see if they win against 1981….Probably, as it’s doubtful the threeheaded monster of McAdoo, Kauffman, and Elmore Smith can be stopped….

Misc Update!

Before all my loyal viewers start complaining about a lack of posts (you know I get at least 50 emails a week from you all!), fine, I'll get a couple updates up (though I wish there was a way to keep this at the top of the page.....Though it may stay there depending on how long my basketball hiatus is after the result of the 2012 finals......).

Anyway....I will be getting a post up soon, and I have one other question:

Anybody with any ideas on how to rate players defensively would you please stand up, and/or shoot me an email ( ).....Anybody interested in a basketball rating project, or any programmers (in Python......aka the programing middle of nowhere) would be appreciated.......That's right, an announcement that follows will be BIG (god I hate those commercials....Except the Celtics one.)

Clippers Game Results (Part 8: 1986 v. 2008)

(14) 1986 Los Angeles Clippers (32-50) vs. (29) 2008 Los Angeles Clippers (23-59)

Clippers Game Results (Part 7: 2011 vs 1983)

(15) 2011 Los Angeles Clippers (32-50) vs. (28) 1983 San Diego Clippers (25-57)

Clippers Game Results (Part 6: 1985 vs 2003)

(16) 1985 Los Angeles Clippers (31-51) vs. (27) 2003 Los Angeles Clippers (27-55)

This is a pretty good matchup…As a refresher, read this: First year in LA! Derek Smith had 22-5-3, Marques Johnson (who came over for Terry Cummings) had 16-6, and Norm Nixon had 17-3-9. Bill Walton actually played 67 games, averaging 10-9…he’s gone by next year.
Nobody played a full year here…Brand (19-11), and Maggette (17-5) both played in only the 60 game range. Lamar Odom (15-7-4, who leaves for Miami after the year) played less than 50 games. Andre Miller though played 80 and had 14-4-7.” Looks like a pretty good matchup from that. Then add in the fact that Game One was a game for the ages (kind of). 

Clippers Game Results (Part 5: 1991 vs 1994)

(17) 1991 Los Angeles Clippers (31-51) vs. (26) 1994 Los Angeles Clippers (27-55)

Very, very weird lineups will be rolled out here…After Manning, and Wilkins were traded for each other, neither could get in the required games…

Clippers Game Results (Part 4: 2001 vs 1978)

(18) 2001 Los Angeles Clippers (31-51) vs. (25) 1978 Buffalo Braves (27-55)

Awful matchup…The only way that any of these games will be a thriller would be if someone makes a shot to make it 2-0 at the end of regulation.

Clippers Game Results (Part 3: 1977 vs 2004)

(19) 1977 Buffalo Braves (30-52) vs. (24) 2004 Los Angeles Clippers (28-54)

Clippers fans may be thinking that “yay, we get to see McAdoo”…well you WOULD…but he played only 20 games due to being traded. Only 8 players are eligible for this team…we may have some weird lineups in Buffalo…

Clippers Game Results Part 2 (1984 vs. 2010)

(20) 1984 San Diego Clippers (30-52) vs. (23) 2010 Los Angeles Clippers (29-53)

Clippers Game Results (Part 1: 1990 vs. 1996)

The moment you’ve ALL been waiting for! The LOS! ANGELES! CLIPPERS!!!!!!!!
To begin, the 1975 Buffalo Braves get a first round bye…Let’s jump right in!

(21) 1990 Los Angeles Clippers (30-52) vs. (22) 1996 Los Angeles Clippers (29-53)
Does it get any better? 30 wins and 29 wins! Let’s battle to the death! (I feel sorry for 1990…no Ron Harper….They suck!). (By the way…Bison Dele is known as Brian Williams.

Game 1

We’re treated to a thriller of a finish…Before you find out who won, I’ll give you a quick play by play. 1990 starts the 4th quarter down 10. 1996’s lead hovers around 10-12. After 5 straight points by Danny Manning, it’s a 6 point game, but Lamond Murray hits a jumper with 8:20 left to make it 8. Then they look to rally back, as Tom Garrick hits a shot, then assists on a three from Ken Norman in the corner. 

Grizzlies Game Results (Part 8: 2004 vs 1999)

(1) 2004 Memphis Grizzlies (50-32) vs. (16) 1999 Vancouver Grizzlies (8-42)

Our last matchup for Memphis. 8 wins…even for 50 games is bad.

Game 1

Grizzlies Game Results (Part 7: 2008 vs. 1997)

(2) 2006 Memphis Grizzlies (49-33) vs. (15) 1997 Vancouver Grizzlies (14-68)

Grizzlies Game Results Part 6 (2011 vs. 1996)

(3) 2011 Memphis Grizzlies (46-36) vs. (14) 1996 Vancouver Grizzlies (15-67)

This team was my bet to win the Memphis tourney. Can they beat the first Vancouver vintage?

The Grizzlies Game Results (Part 5: 2005 vs. 1998)

(4) 2005 Memphis Grizzlies (45-37) vs. (13) 1998 Vancouver Grizzlies (19-63)

Our first +.500 team!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow! (These lineups were very hard to configure…)….

Grizzlies Game Results: Part 4 (2008 vs. 2010)

It's been a long time been a long time been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time! As you may have read, my computer woes seem unsolvable, so we are going to be posting in a sub par format...Sorry....I blame the computer. One idea I'm also looking to do is to expand this blog so it includes some other of my interests, with little special articles now and then, on stuff like music, or football or whatever. Anyone (is there anybody out there? Only I can quote Pink Floyd and Zeppelin in the same paragraph...) like that idea? Anyway....On to the matchup! (One plus...these will be coming out faster without me having to format them.).

(5) 2010 Memphis Grizzlies (40-42) vs. (12) 2008 Memphis Grizzlies (22-60)

2010 easily wins….08 is all deformed from the Gasol trade….

Well, It's Been a While....

And a lot has happened in that while....To begin:

I had finally gotten the boxes to post...Of course, two days or so after, I manage to contract a computer virus. So I ended up getting a new laptop, and I transfered my files over ( far my new computer is good). Of course, when I try to get the Word on the computer so I can actually USE the documents, the site is down for around a week. During that week I realize that this computer does NOT have spreadsheet....I haven't really messed around with Excel yet...We can hope though...

Anyway though, I should be able to get SOMETHING up soon....Thanks to my avid followers for sticking with me (all zero of you)...
