Eye on Basketball Podcast: Dan Woike on the Clippers
Zach Harper and Dan Woike discuss the Los Angeles Clippers as emerging contenders, discuss their newfound depth, and discuss TV and game shows.
Dan Woike of the Orange County Register joins me on the podcast after escaping the aftermath of the Los Angeles Clippers' destruction of the Lakers. How much of this game was a showcase of the newfound depth the Clippers are sporting after the additions of Glen Davis and Danny Granger? Do they have enough depth, especially inside, to have a championship caliber rotation in the playoffs?
Blake Griffin just won Western Conference Player of the Month. How good is he and how good can he be? Will he eventually become a 3-point threat? How does his jumper look now? If he becomes a pick-and-pop guy, how do you defend him? What is his ceiling in terms of ranking in the NBA? Could he end up being as good as the third best player depending on Paul George's ceiling? Will Griffin's defense ever be good?
We discuss all of this, plus Hedo Turkoglu's physique, Jamal Crawford as a weapon, and about 35 minutes of movies, TV, and game show talk.
