The Clippers' Trouble: How do they get out?

Injury problems plus trade rumors are piling up. So are the losses


One cannot simply help but feel bad towards the Los Angeles Clippers and their recent struggles. Why? The Clippers were used to be one of the West's top teams and have been a consistent playoff-bound team for the last 7 years. Now?

Milos Teodosic is injured. So is Danilo Gallinari although reports are now saying that Gallinari is returning soon. But one injury that hit the Clippers the worst is the one that hit Blake Griffin. 




Next, there's the nagging rumor surrounding DeAndre Jordan's future with the team as 4 teams are now interested in acquiring the center via a blockbuster trade. Despite his free throw shooting percentage, DeAndre Jordan remains as one of the league's elite centers and defenders so it's no surprise teams will try and try to acquire him.

Then there are also some people who are asking: Why is Doc Rivers still coaching? Many people are blaming Doc Rivers for the Clippers' struggles. It might be unfair for them to do so but if you look at it, they might have a point. So how do the Clippers get out of their problems?


Settle the DeAndre Jordan Issue

Once and for all,  the Clippers' front office should decide what they are going to do with DeAndre Jordan- whether they will be entertaining trade offers or not. Why is this important?

Regardless of which path the Clippers will take, it will allow everyone to move on and focus on playing the game itself. This will also help DeAndre Jordan too because once the issue surrounding his future has been settled, it will help him regain his focus towards the game.


Stay Healthy. Get Healthy Players

One of the problems that have been hampering the Clippers this season is their inability to stay healthy in the long run. One may say that the Clippers are cursed with this injury problem. If the Clippers can stay healthy and probably get new players from the free agency or even trades, they can make a big push for the playoffs.


Conclusion

To simply tell you how bad the Clippers are this season, they are at 8-14, only half a game better than the Lakers. While it's still a long season, the Clippers may need to act quickly and smart if they want to maintain their playoff streak. Dealing with the DeAndre Jordan situation might be the first step.
