Re: What if Clippers didn't acquire Chris Paul?
I think Paul's bailed us out a lot in close games, more than we'd like to remember. Chauncey's one of the best in late game situations but he's not as clutch as CP3. Having Young/Martin/Kaman this year would be very interesting to say the least (that second unit looks like an average starting unit, wow)... and I much as I love Gordon, he's still not even half the closer Billups is. With Griffin having clearly not made any improvements to his game from last year and Butler becoming decidedly average over the stretch, I'd say we'd be the #7th seed and #9th at worst in the West without CP3.
