CP3 and blake griffin.... :speechless:

Good for the clippers though. They were good last year, and now they will be in the playoffs this year IMO.
I'm happy as a pig in **** that the lakers didn't get paul.

I always liked the name clippers. It's gangsta. Lakers is just a stupid name for there location.

I bet Stern would like to remake the tv schedule a little bit.

So they now have Paul, Bledsoe & Billups @ PG.

One of those guys could be very pissed about this situation, and his name starts with a "B" but doesn't end with "ledsoe".

clippers are a sexy team but all their studs are injury prone

They now have 3 PG's, so now what at that position? CP3 will start obviously but what will happen with Blessoe and Billups?

Don't forget Mo Williams.

Lol, I did forget about him still being there too. They need to at least get rid of either Billups or Mo.

What they should do is buy out Billups or offer him the chance to buy himself out for the amount they just got him for (if that is legal in the NBA). When they had the uncertainty of Paul coming over I understand the move to bid on him against his wishes, but now they simply don't really need him.

Having Bledsoe split time with either one of the veteran guards will hamper his development, so ideally they have him as the primary backup, Imo.

I don't get the hype around the CP-BG combo. It'll be flashy, sure. But BG was already flashy as is. It's not going to make him a better defender.

Damn I forgot about him. Well its obvious that one will be moved if not two. I see them letting Billups go and him heading to Miami.

I hate that Eric Gordon was involved in this trade. I honestly believe that Eric Bledsoe would of been a great fit for the Hornets. But yes now LAC has four PG's and 1 Shooting guard(Leslie??). It seems as that they might use Billups @ SG?

Maybe they can flip Mo Williams for a SG?

- Mo Williams to Pacers for SG B.Rush & 2012 2nd rd pick?

What if Stuckey doesnt resign with the Pistons??

- Mo Williams for SG B.Gordon??

Maybe Houston for SG K.Martin???

Would Philly take Mo Williams & R.Gomes for AI23??

C-Jordan PF-Blake SF-Butler SG-AI23 PG-Paul?

imagine a Lakers vs Clippers series. Is there really a HCA? Maybe the Clippers can get there own arena now.

Lol The hornets have no PG they should have traded a PG for a Pg but I guess not, the Clippers were the losers in this trade they should have not gotten rid of Aminu, they lost out on a very athletic player who could have came something more "LeBron-Like".

They got Mo Williams too. That is 4 PG's so another trade will be happening I am sure.

Wade is injury prone too, just thought I'd point that out.

The LA Clippers have 4 PGs. 4 of them. Can't forget about Mo Williams

Raps have a bunch of PF's and need a starting PG bad...Clippers could use some help with bigmen off the bench,possible trading partners?

whats the rule with retiring?

Because brandon Roy would be a great fit on this team now lacking a true 2.

Mo Williams to Miami for Mike Miller & Eddie House or Filler

Miami gets starting PG that doesn't dominate the ball and can shoot the 3. One problem may be his relationship with LeBron post-Cleveland.

Clippers get a deadly outside shooter in Miller to make teams pay for clogging the paint. Eddie House provides veteran depth and insurance.

We've basically got 4 guys that can play the PG position in Darren Collison, George Hill, A.J. Price, Lance Stephenson. Although we really would like to get rid of Brandon Rush.

Clearly was rigged. the only people who dont believe its rigged are the clipper fans. Demar derozan did the same dunk as griffen's second dunk( which griffen got a 46 for) while derozan did the same dunk but through his legs in less atemps, yet he only got 44. THe rason why griffen got 46? because it would put him one point higher than derozan to advance. THe nba rigged it for coporate sponsership with kia. 2 feet high hood of a car? even a cripplied 10 year could do that/.

If the clippers can steal crawford from portland and sign Dalembert, then I can see them as real contenders.

Billups can play the 2. Didn't he coe in to the league as an sg?

Gotta feel good for the Clippers. If only they weren't in LA, LA has plenty of basketball history with the Lakers. Would of been nice to see a team like Minnesota put together a team like this.

The Clipper hate is pathetic. ITS THE CLIPPERS. And people are hating. Every single thread I think from here to the end of the season. This is truly pathetic. I am out.
