Considering the positivity surrounding the Los Angeles Clippers' performance in 2010-11, you would think Blake Griffin and Eric Gordon possibly led them to a winning record, or perhaps the brink of the playoffs.
While there are legitimate reasons for optimism—the Clippers do have a seemingly bright future and they did play almost .500 ball after going 3-15 out of the gates—let's not forget that they only won 32 games this past season. They obviously still have significant developing and maturing to do.
Here, I'm handing out final grades to every member of the Clips, from the star student to the class clown, to see who has passed and who should drop out.
(Note, I'm only grading players who finished the year with the Clippers. Guys who were traded or released, such as Baron Davis, all receive F's or Incompletes.)
