Clowe was probably the best logical signing to replace Clarkson.
yeah, I completely agree with this too. There's no one else on the market who could have brought nearly the same toolset. It was really a no brainer for Lou to sign him. He'll do some nice things. Now we just got to get over the 'replacement' thing, and the 'contract' thing else when he puts up his 48 points and EXCEEDS realistic expectations, people will be irate.
