Letters to Sports activities: Russell Westbrook will assist Clippers except he doesn’t

If I had been Clippers coach Tyronn Lue, I’d inform Russell Westbrook to not shoot threes except time expires, since his three-point capturing is virtually the worst within the NBA. And if Russ makes a silly move, I’d go away him. In any other case, the power Russ brings to the ground will certainly assist the Clippers.

The pseudo-king handled Westbrook like a nugatory pawn, so let’s hope Russell performs exceptionally nicely and reveals the ring world that the king is the worst GM in Lakers historical past.

Disgrace on Queen Jeanie for even listening to James. Thanks, Paul George.

To the Clipper mind belief: If this goes south, because it inevitably will, don’t say you weren’t warned.

What a shock. Invoice Plaschke claims the Clippers are making the identical errors because the Lakers. The Clippers solely gave up some change from Steve Ballmer to take an opportunity on an skilled level guard going to the basket, their solely want apart from some well being. Russ received’t fill the stat sheet or be a defensive stopper, however he may help elevate the primary Clippers flag.

Westbrook may very well be a giant assist to the Clippers if he has a clearly outlined function as a facilitator and a clearly outlined clause in his contract: you can be fined $10,000 each time you make a three-point shot.

As a Clippers fan, I admit I’m involved concerning the Russell Westbrook takeover. Then Invoice Plaschke wrote a column suggesting the transfer could be a catastrophe for the workforce. Since Invoice’s profitable prediction fee is round 8%, I instantly felt higher.

For Clippers followers, probably the most terrifying assertion of the week got here from head coach Tyronn Lue. “We would like Russ to be Russ.”
