Rare Good News for Clippers

As a fan of perennially struggling teams like the LA Clippers, Atlanta Falcons, and Pittsburgh Pirates, I'm glad to see reports that the Clippers are on the verge of signing point guard Baron Davis away from the Warriors.

They could use the good news.

It also gives the Clippers a decent team of Baron Davis at point, Elton Brand and Joe Thornton at forward, Chris Kaman playing center, and some combination of recently drafted Eric Gordon and Cuttino Mobley at shooting guard. Last year's leading scorer, Corey Maggette, might also re-sign.

That's not murderers row but it's a team that would compete for a playoff spot in a tough Western conference.
