BLOG: Turiaf a 'piece of the puzzle' for LA Clippers


It's hard to believe Ronny Turiaf is a seven-year veteran of the NBA now. Isn't it? Seems like just yesterday he was playing with Adam Morrison at The Kennel in Spokane. Or getting heart surgery shortly after being drafted by the Lakers. Or playing with the Warriors. Or Knicks. Or Wizards. Or Heat.

Now he's a Clipper, and he is apparently okay with that.

Broderkck Turner had a nice piece about Turiaf and teammate Ryan Hollins this weekend in the LA Times:

"Ronny Turiaf and Ryan Hollins have thrived in their roles during the exhibition season as the reserve big men for the Clippers.

They work well together, both bringing energy when they're on the court.

"We have a nice little relationship going on," said Turiaf, a seven-year veteran. "It's like I tell him what I'm going to do and what to expect from me. He tells me what to expect from him. He likes me talking to him. Defensively, we're both active. We're both trying to make plays. We play off each other.""

Turiaf said the Clippers have a "nice little mix of guys".
