Every time I type C.J. Miles’ name, I want to type Watson. I almost type it. I get to the “t” and have to delete. This tells me that Miles just hasn’t made a name for himself yet. Hasn’t carved out his place.Please, blog, may I have some more?

Sometimes things can get a little snarky here at Razzball. Sometimes? Well, yeah, Italics Baldwin. Sometimes. Uh, and ‘a little snarky’? Just a tad, yeah. What of it? Razzfall? No. You simply misread that one. I clearly typed it Razzball. Bifocal-up, son.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Through the first half of the season, any Clipper talk has centered almost primarily around Blake Griffin‘s phatness or Baron Davis‘ fatness. Little respect has been paid to one of the surprise top 10 scorers in the league, Eric Gordon.Please, blog, may I have some more?
