A Brief And Obvious Point About The Clippers Being Cursed

When you hire a 35-year-old guard with around 37,500 career minutes in the NBA, between 1,002 regular season games and 140 playoff games, plus international play...

Who was amnestied by a team with no other credible option at point guard...

And then you play him 30-plus minutes per game in a sprint schedule lockout year where players are dropping like flies, for a team that needed him to play big minutes in the playoffs much more than the regular season...

And watch him get hurt...

That's not cursed.

That's going all-in with non-suited, non-paint connectors against four tight players raising before the flop.

That's buying stock at a 5-year-high after the original employees start to rest and vest.

That's buying an English sports car with high mileage after the transmissions been swapped out.

In other words, that's getting more or less what you deserve for putting your money into a questionable bet, and why Chaunce was so available in the first place. (In case you haven't heard, he's done for the year now due to a serious injury, and talking about how this doesn't mean he's going to retire, which means he's probably going to wish later that he just retired.)

But if you really want to live in a world of superstition where Good Must Win and Evil Must Be Punished, but only when the narrative suits you...

Um, you do realize that having Donald "Racist Abusive Slumlord NBA Welfare Case" Sterling as your owner more or less kills any chance for long-term success, right?
