NBA Draft: Clip Joint New Home for Thornton

By David Scott - June 28, 2007

It's still tough to get used to the fact the Clippers are actually a competitive NBA team and that getting chosen by them isn't the death knell it used to be. That's the good news for Al Thornton. The bad news is that the Clips are probably only a couple of seasons away form being laughing stocks again. Fortunately for them the Celtics appear to be determined to wrestle that title from them for the foreseeable future. (Our hometown bitterness to the Celts is particularly mean-spirited right now. We apologize. But Ray Allen? At 32 years old (in three weeks)? Ray Allen? Why, Danny?

. . . Rodney Stuckey seemed to know he would be a Piston when we sat with him for an interview yesterday. Great spot for the likable Stuckey who will be able to blend in with some veterans, play for a winning team and learn what it takes to be a champion in the NBA. He is a very solid insurance policy should Chauncey Billups bolt Motown.
