Vinny Del Negro to Baron Davis: You’re Still Out of Shape

VDN hasn’t changed his stance on B-Diddy (who sat out last night with a knee injury); he still finds him a bit too chubby for his liking. From the Press-Enterprise: “Baron has incredible amounts of talent and ability,’ Del Negro said in his pre-game media conference, ‘but his focus needs to be on staying in condition and playing at a high level. And he hasn’t done that for a while, and I know he’s frustrated with that, but there’s things he has to do to correct that. We’ve tried to put him in position to correct that, and this is a setback right now, obviously, with his knee, and hopefully we can monitor that and get him back as soon as possible, but when he comes back, he needs to come back healthy and playing at a level that can affect the team in a positive way.’ Del Negro said he believes Davis can do what he’s asking. ‘But talking about it and doing it are two different things. So I think we’ve talked about that situation plenty, and now it’s up to Baron to make that commitment to get back into shape that he needs to and get back with the team and be a leader and a catalyst for this team in the right way. It’s really up to him. We’re here ready to support him 1,000 percent and we have every resource available to do that, and he has to take the lead.’”

    @dirty frank, I would hope he is over it by now. I mean that was 2008, but I was curious to see if Davis and Brand could recreate that 2006 Clippers season like Brand did with Sam Cassell. That seven game series with the Suns was epic. I really think the Clippers would have won game 5 if Sam didn’t get that eight second violation. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBdx6tBMpXk) But anyway Baron should suck it up and realize that he has this freak of nature kid named Blake Griffin. I’m just disappointed in his play. He’s to good of a player to just be playing mediocre.

    I’m getting tired of BDiddy BS, trade him already. Dude is destroying a very talenented team with his non-existent work ethic and bad shot taking. A team with nice young talent like the clippers shouldn’t be 0-4 look at the grizz.

    Enigmatic to Vinny Del Negro: you still suck at coaching.

  • Danno

    Don’t know what is worse, Vinny’s horrendous coaching or Baron’s play. The Clippers may be the worst “professional” team I have ever seen. At half time last night their FT % was 47…..great job coach !!!!

  • unrel

    blame the clipper curse, BDiddy..

    If I were making $13million a year I’d be fat too.

  • onlyclipsfanonslam

    this is all lies. Baron is at 209 which is actually lower than his GSW days. Yes he is not in game shape, not to mention on old legs, but he isn’t fat
