Playoffs, next season! i'll put money on it! ....Blake Griffin = Beast!
They need to put some good players around Griffin, though. He can't do it all himself.
And Donald Sterling is their owner. Enough said!
I'd bet some vcash but well I've got to damn much
Clippers might want to move back to San Diego now that the Kings I mean Anaheim Royals will be in OC andthe Lakers will always be LA's team
That'd be cool since The Chargers aren't long for SD, Diego will need a Pro sports team to fill their shoes
Trade the Chargers for the Clippers back?
no thanks :no:
No one said anything about "trading" was just sayin' that once the Chargers leave, if the Clippers came to San Diego it would fill the pro sports team void. ...Or San Diegans can just wait for ownership to finally truly decimate the Padres and then have no pro sports teams at all. hahaha
Padres management is the gold standard of sports ownership when compared Donald Sterling.
...maybe so but at least this past few seasons he has attained a superstar player and so far has put some pieces in place to support him. Barrring an NBA lockout the Clippers will most likely be very active in attaining players to make a push at the playoffs. Lets see....padres got rid of Gonzalez and expected Veneble to fill his shoes (who wasn't hitting strong to begin with) instead of looking for a legit replacement....now Denorfria gets a turn at it....hmmm.
He attained a star player because he pretty much had no choice to attain him by winning the #1 pick in the draft.
They have Blake Griffin. That's awesome. They're not going to win **** with him if they don't put a team around him. So what's Sterling's way of doing that? He gives this year's 1st round pick to Cleveland for free.
And what makes you think the Padres expect Venable to fill Adrian's shoes? (as opposed to any of the other ****** players on the team) Did Jed say that?
By the way, I wasn't trying to insinuate that the Padres even have good management. They're just great when compared to the gold standard of ****** management named Donald Sterling.
Donald Sterling even makes Mike Brown look good.
....Blake is half white, so maybe Sterling will treat him a little better that his last few "stars" hahaha
Now the best team in SoCal. Go Clips!
Apparently CP3 can't go to the Lakers to play in the Staples Center because it's too large of a market for the NBA to be ok with it but it's perfectly acceptable for him to go to the Clippers to play in the Staples Center?
The Hornets felt that they were not getting good value from the Lakers trade to make them more appealing for a buyer. Oh well, I'm glad he's not above playing for the Clippers and willing to stay for at least 2 years. Besides playing with a young Griffin is better than playing with an old and declining Bryant.
not necessarily, griffin is his cornerstone, but if paul would have came to the lakers kobe could have mentored him and made him a better player, and once they got paul. the lakers would have done everything to get dwight howard, Chris paul and Dwight Howard plus kobe is better than paul and griffin
Is that why the Hornets agreed to the deal?
Their GM agreed to the deal because it made the team more competitive at the time (typically most GM's that want to stay employed's job). There was evidently not much communication between the league of owners that owned the Hornets and the GM because the "owner" wanted the most "sell-able" product, which meant either landmark star player on the roster (Paul) or as close to a clean slate as possible (no big financial commitments tied up over the years to large contracts for aging players).
Even appreciating the kind of player that Chris Paul is (one who makes all the players around him better by virtue of being on the court), the Clippers still actually overpaid by having to include both Gordon and Minnesota's unprotected 1st in the deal; one or the other, plus Aminu, Kaman (and his expiring contract), and a Clippers' 1st should have been enough (with the middle-ground being either Ariza or Okafor coming back to free up more NO cap space - probably Ok given the fact that the Clips were giving up a big, even though Ariza's the better player).
Can't say we never took care of Marko Jaric... up until we traded him to Minnesota...
Clippers and Oklahoma City for the western conference finals.
Watching that game was a preview of things to come
This may happen! Go Clippers!
I really want to see Lakers/Clippers
It'd be an interesting storyline
My money's on San Antonio/Oklahoma City, though
Well, figurative money. I didn't actually bet anything.
I love what the Clippers and Lakers have become.
