Eye on Basketball Podcast: DJ Foster talking about the Clippers
Zach Harper and DJ Foster talk about the greatness of the Clippers' offense, the trouble with their defense, and trying to trade Rudy Gay.
I've got DJ Foster from ClipperBlog and Bleacher Report on the podcast to discuss the championship hopeful Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers went pretty much all in with their moves this offseason, including upgrading the coaching position from Vinny Del Negro to Doc Rivers. But did they do enough for their interior? What is the plan here and is this the reason their defense has been so atrocious in the first few games? Can Chris Paul keep this pace up? Will the Clippers make a trade using Jamal Crawford as a chip to bring in a third big man?
Speaking of trades, DJ has been trying to figure out how to get Rudy Gay off the Toronto Raptors. Would a trade to the Sacramento Kings make sense for both sides and allow the Kings to make a run at the playoffs? Can you move him to the Charlotte Bobcats in the hopes of pairing him with Al Jefferson to make the team a lot more athletic and dangerous in the East? Would the Cleveland Cavaliers give up on their dreams of luring LeBron James back to the Cavs and settle for acquiring Gay? Does it make sense for Rudy Gay to opt out of a contract this summer that would pay him roughly $19 million next season?
We discuss all of this, plus hair stylings, the Lt. Dan Band, and much more.

Had he fallen to the Bulls at No. 7, he would have been
