LeBron, Blatt Agree: Defense Needs Work

The Wine and Gold scrimmage on Wednesday night in theory was still practice. Guys are still trying to pick up David Blatt’s system on offense and defense.

Extra passes were made and it became contagious. Offense isn’t going to be the problem. It’s the defensive end that continues to need work.

(Said LeBron James:) “I’ve always been on some pretty good defensive teams when I was here and when I left…We have to defend to win. Obviously, offensively we’re going to be very good, but we have to defend too.”

“I thought defensively we were obviously not at the level that we need to be when it comes to playing real games in the NBA,” Blatt said following the scrimmage.

Steve Ballmer: Clippers Moving to Inglewood ‘come hell or high water’

“I love L.A. I also love my wife, by the way, but I love L.A. and I don’t want there to be any mistake about it. We want to be part of the fabric of this community,” said [Steve] Ballmer, who stepped down as Microsoft’s CEO early in 2014, shortly before he rescued the Clippers from the clutches of disgraced Donald Sterling and bought the franchise for $2 billion.

“We’re moving to Inglewood come hell or high water,” he said of a proposed arena near the site of the stadium being constructed for the Rams and Chargers. “We gotta have a house. So we’re working on a plan to get our own house. We want to get our own house. It turns out the way this works in L.A., which is much beloved to me, that if you start now you might be done in six years.” He then urged fans to contact their Assembly representative and state senator to urge approval of legislation that would accelerate the process. He probably inspired more than a few emails and phone calls.
