Forget Iverson, forget Artest, the Clippers solution to their early season woes... Doug Christie??? The Clippers signed Christie to a 10-day contract adding depth and more importantly solving The Doug Christie Jersey Dilemma.
So will the Staples Center demons play tricks with Christie? Will he go 2002 WCF on shot-put wide open jumpers that hit the side of the backboard? Will he go medieval on Andrew Bynum simply because he wears the number 17? Given that ridiculously annoying hand signals to his wife, shouldn't the Miami Heat have already signed Christie to a lifetime contract? (Just imagine the gesture-off between Zo Mourning and Mrs. Christie, we're talking battle of the ages!) Will Christie jump into the stands and try to pummel me when I wear a Rick Fox jersey the next time I go to a Clippers game?
Seriously though, with Magette in Dunleavy's doghouse all year and Tim Thomas (as I predicted the day they signed him) stealing incredible amount of money, will we see 1,256 hand gestures from the three spot?
