Newly signed guard, Milos Teodosic, recently wrote on his blog about his excitement in joining the LA Clippers.
Milos Teodosic is looking to be a big part of the LA Clippers this season. The Serbian guard wrote on his blog Wednesday morning how he felt like he fit with the team from the moment he sat down with them.
"From the very first moment the talks began with the Clippers I knew that this was going to be my new family! They made me feel very comfortable, they convinced me that they have faith in me, and it’s important that here I will have the time, the opportunities, and the role I need in order to adjust and prove what I can do in the NBA."
This bodes well for the Clippers. Despite losing integral pieces in Chris Paul, J.J. Redick and Jamal Crawford, the team was able to bring together a deep roster. How all these new pieces fit together is the real question. Chemistry will be a big part of the success of this team. With a bunch of new players coming in due to free agency and sign-and-trades, a sense of comfortability is necessary.

Hopefully, Milos, along with Patrick Beverly, will be able to quickly develop chemistry with their new teammates. Milos’ amazing passing definitely will require a certain level of understanding and trust, so the team will have to work to come together quickly.
Beverly and Teodosic should already have some chemistry after playing overseas together. That should be helpful moving forward as Teodosic will not only be learning to play for the Clippers, but in the NBA in general. It will be a big jump for the 30 year old guard to make, but he seems excited for the opportunity.
In his blog, he also goes to mention that he understands that the season will be long and the games will be more intense. Hopefully this realization will help him to better prepare for the year. Several hyped up foreign players have had their games fall flat when they move to the NBA, but Milos seems to understand what is needed of him mentally to make the jump.
