Eye on Basketball Podcast: Hall of Fame and Clippers' offseason

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

After a busy weekend in the opening games of the NFL season, you may have missed the Basketball Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony that happened Sunday afternoon. Matt Moore is on today's episode to help me discuss the relevancy of the Basketball Hall of Fame and whether or not there should be a separate NBA Hall of Fame. Is the growth of basketball that the Hall of Fame is supposed to show (in theory) enough of a time capsule for how we got to the present day of the sport or do we need to see the separate impact of today's NBA? Should the evolution of the game continually raise the standards of modern players getting in?

We're also catching up on our podcast version of the offseason reports and so begins our final week of offseason report podcasts with the Pacific Division. Today we're talking about the Los Angeles Clippers. Matt gave them a B for their offseason when we started this series of posts back in late July. Was that high enough or was their inability to improve the interior of the team a big drawback? Does this roster construction hinge on Blake Griffin's improvement and DeAndre Jordan making a leap? Is the criticism Blake Griffin gets fair or is the improvement in skill set likely to yield appropriate results and production soon? How many more wins should Doc Rivers give them?

We discuss all of this, plus maturity as a player, Gary Payton's Hall of Fame speech, and the new Robocop movie.
