Your Daily Photo (Summer League is Clipper Time! Edition)

Even the folks behind the Clippers can be hopeful this time of year (and David Stern can pretend to like these folks).

Blake Griffin is the real deal, he's going to be a star in the NBA, he should even be an impact player as a rookie.

On paper, the Clips look like a sure playoff team, and should end up the second in the Pacific Division (Lakers still the heavy favorites in their division, Phoenix has slipped, Golden State is a work in progress, and the Kings are the Kings, they should be better than last year, but that's not saying much). They are the Clippers, so while they have the talent for a 50+ win season, they also have the history and an organization that can take this talent and produce a 50+ loss season, as well.
