Paul= 2005 Steve Nash MVP
Griffin= 2005 Amare Stoudemire

Maybe a stretch but you get it.

Lebron or Wade can't win MVP because they're together but Paul and Blake can?

This is still a team that was 32-50 last season. yes they got Chris Paul but they lost eric gordon. do you think they will really be that drastically better??

good point. I mean they add butler, you would think griffin will be better, but If chris paul didn't have bone on bone on one knee, I would say the clippers would make the playoffs, but now, I'm not so sure.

he is not there yet, but very possibly on his way there. hopefully he will at least last the next 2 years we have him for.

Yea, I forgot about that too. Paul has injury issues and Blake does too, (well he just had the one horrible injury and was healthy all season last year, but we'll see). Butler is overrated and an extreme ball hog.

Blake was only a rookie. Look at the Thunder man, they went from 23 wins in 2009 to 50 wins in 2010 with same core. Now the Clips add a superstar top 5-7 player in place of Gordon who was a top 20-30 player maybe, and then you get a 2nd year Blake and Caron Butler.

A guy who does nothing but dunk, or the best all around point guard in the league?

Byron Scott and the Clippers would be a perfect fit, I voted for Chris Paul i don't see the Clippers grabbing more then a 4th seed right now but look for them to be very dangerous in the playoffs.

None. I don't see the Clippers finishing in the top 3. They'll be 6th 7th seed at best

The clippers should be fun to watch this year. CP3 if he can play like the year he was 2nd in MVP voting. He has some nice weapons.

GhostfaceDrilla
12-14-2011, 11:38 PM
Probably Paul. But looking at this roster:

PG: Chris Paul
SG: Randy Foye?
SF: Caron Butler
PF: Blake Griffin
C: DeAndre Jordan

Their bench sucks. This team wouldn't contend. They need more pieces.

Their starting five is deadly with Paul leading the way. Their bench is *** though. The thing that makes me think the clippers will be a tough out for EVERYONE is because I've seen Cp3 do a HELL OF A LOT with A LOT less talent. He has legit weapons now that would be good with or w/o him. Cp3 made David West who he is and he also put Tyson Chandler on the map. Griffin,butler,Foye,Billups,D Jordan...all good players in their own right without paul. He'll just make them that much better.

Did you think the Bulls would finish with the #1 seed in the league last season the best W% of any team against the West and Derrick Rose would have won the MVP? Especially if you would have been told that Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah would miss 57 games combined. I don't think so.

Chris Paul. Clippers didn't even make the playoffs last year, now if they earn a higher seed this year Chris Paul has to be at his best. And that happens I don't Griffin being the #1 reason on voters eyes.

IMO the biggest concern for the Clippers shouldn't be their bench, their head coach, their vacancy at SG none of that. Their biggest concern should be to keep their players healthy. I wouldn't say Paul and Blake are prone to injury but given their history it should be a concern. Butler as well is just now coming off a serious injury and Deandre Jordan style of play for his size doesn't bode well for remaining healthy.

BG. He was gifted the dunk contest, Im sure they will gift him MVP.

I'm a huge fan of Gordon...great scorer, but he is replaceable for a decent price too, especially with CP3 at point guard. Are CP3's knees that bad though?

Neither considering they're a 5-8 seed IMO, but if the Clipps become a Top 3 seed in the West... Then it's CP3.

The Clippers just won't be a top 3 seed this season. They have way too many holes right now.

He was signed tonight and we're already doing projected MVP threads on them being a project top 3 seed? Digest your steak before skipping to the pudding JB. C'mon now.

arent u getting a little pretentious that they would even finish any higher in the west than the 5th seed,lol?

are u a homer or something?

Griffin could very well likely average 30 and 15 this year, with the combination of 1 year of experience under his belt and the acquisition of Paul

agreed, nd lebron will average 30/10/10, d-rose will average 40 ppg, and ricky rubio will average 20 assists

we are talking about in 2k12 right?

I love how there are mad Clippers threads in the NBA forum now! Let me tell you, I think I like what we had before this trade better, but I like the hype around our team now better. We will live up to it. We are good! We have been for a couple...well...days now! LOL!!

This part alone tells me you are clueless, this is the same team who was closer to the lottery than actually competing for a playoff spot.

LMAO you have no idea do you? we were losing last season mostly due to having 2-3 starters out with injury for most of the season. when everyone was healthy were already playing .500 basketball with a bunch of 21 year olds.

please stop throwing **** on the wall and see which one sticks.

Throwing what against the wall, i had never seen you post here much less addressed a post towards your direction so I have no idea why you're trying to call me out in such a childish way.On the topic, hell the Rockets won 11 more games than the Clippers did with ZERO interior presence mostly due to them being crippled with Yao's situation.

Definitely not a Stockton-Malone situation. Malone produced much more than Stockton did.

The difference is that Bulls also went from an idiotic coach to a defensive mastermind, while LAC still have the same idiotic coach.

But I agree with you that people shouldn't sleep on them. Plus they have Chauncey as well that people seem to forget here.

Honestly, I can see them as a top 4 seed if Paul, Griffin and Butler can stay healthy.

In terms of this thread, I think it'll be CP3. Honestly, if he stays healthy, I really think he could do it (the shortened season is what kills it for a guy like CP3 who is bound to get many off days, unfortunately). Especially after getting his MVP award stolen by Kobe in 08.

Blake Griffin and Chris Paul is more like Amare Stoudemire and Steve Nash + better defense.


Once Blake Griffin can add a reliable jumper 15-18" he can transform this scenario to the Karl Malone and John Stockton.

D.O.N.
12-21-2011, 04:37 PM
I think Blake will put up more point, he can lead the league in boards(he was 4th last season so i think he has a good chance).+ he's the face of the frachise.

I really don't see how this makes that much of a difference. Coach Thibs is a first year head coach no one could have said for certain that he'd win 60 games in his first season as a head coach. I don't even think he realistically aimed that high.

Na, I was referring to the improvement, not predicting before the season started.
