    Melo could be heading to the Clippers not the Lakers...

    http://hoopshype.com/rumors.htm

    What a turn of events this could be. Talking about trading for Lowry and the looking to trade with the Clippers?

    This could be a great move for the Clips. ..Griffin is far from a legit superstar....

    The Clips have been lacking a low post game for a while now. Carmelo could be a different player playing under Doc and CP3...
    They will not beat the Spurs or OKC currently constructed. .but Melo could change that for sure. If this happens the Lakers will also need to rethink their 2014 plans with Melo is a guy they are targeting

    Melo is not a franchise player neither Griffin. Lakers know that that is why they kept Kobe until there will be some real franchise free agents. If he comes fine,but I do not think that we are going to loose any sleep over this.

    Please, yes -- send Melo to the Clips. Or Turkistan. Anywhere but the Lakers.

    Agree with shep,looks like CP3 and Melo would be a bad combination, particullary if Melo still handle the ball too much.

    imo, there are precious few PGs that WOULD work with Melo; but I think CP3 IS one of them.
    Melo needs:
    1) one of the best of the pass-first PGs (who also is an above average defender) PLUS,
    2) 3 other starters who would be happy with 10 ppgs, while excelling in selfless: passing, defending & rebounding.

    Such a team could win big time IF, Melo spent most of his efforts BEFORE getting the ball. i.e., getting free at his multiplicity of sweet spots, catching the near-perfect dimes and canning them; with some rebounding and little defense to drain his near-total offensive effort.

    If he were to join the Clippers, I don't know if they would have those 3 super-complimentary players left after that trade to make it work. I believe Doc WOULD make it work with: CP3 + Melo + those 3; throw in a slightly better than average bench, and their very series contenders.

    Given what I just said in my previous post, I'd ONLY want Melo with the Lakers IF:
    1) they get Rondo (tightly-restricted to shoot-last and only top-% shots) OR a similar top PG;
    2) 2 complimentary pieces (like in my previous post). Say Asik (for Pau) and the other forward postion "by-committee).
    3) Kobe.

    Kobe-Melo = 50 ppg,
    Other 3 starters: 30 ppg
    Subs: 25 ppg
    Offense = 105 ppg with everybody else complimenting our two big guns.
    Defense, quite strong, strong enough to cover for Melo-Kobe not overly-tiring themselves on D.

    That Lakers team could compete for a Chip.

    That could work. Melo was awesome with the Olympic team. With just the right set of pieces, he could be great for the Lakers

    P.S. Melo would be "restricted" to minimal isos and ball-dominance (especially early in the clock); or forget it.

    Paul is a pass first PG.

    Melo is a shoot first guy.

    Why wouldn't it work. And the chemistry is already there with the 2 guys dating back to the 08 Olympics, and when Anthony and Paul made that toast of wanting to play together (In NY albeit) at Anthony's wedding.

    The 2 guys always wanted to play together, Paul wanted the Hornets to trade him to NYK for a package but never came to fruition.

    Question is, who kills this deal before it progresses further? The cheapskate POS Sterling? Or the Incompetent Brain Dead Dolan?

    Battle of the large market underachieving **** owners right here folks.
