Kenyon Martin doesn't think much of the Los Angeles Clippers, or of their chances of making a deep run in the NBA playoffs. Martin, who played for the Clippers last season, and against them on Sunday as a member of the New York Knicks, told reporters that the Clippers' uptempo "Lob City" offense is destined to fail in the postseason, when halfcourt sets reign supreme. “You can’t do it in the playoffs, so it don’t matter,” Martin said, according to The New York Times. “In the regular season it’s all up and down, man. We know the way the game goes in the regular season.” LA defeated a New York team that was without Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler, 93-80. Martin refused to say whether his critique was the product of a bad experience with the Clips, but he seemed to betray animosity by dismissing them later in his postgame interview session. "I don't care what they do, to be honest with you. I hope they lose every game," he said, per the Times.
