    J.R will be a great pickup for a team. He's a great wildcard. His streaking shooting can literally win you games when he get's hot. He's obviously a knuckle head and abit of a headache but I think it'd be worth it. He's putting effort in on defense. His midrange game was really starting to take off too.

    He'd be HUGE for the Knicks or Bulls when you consider the risk\reward factor. Still rather see him on a team like the Bobcats where he'd be able to chuck and put on a show . Raptors perhaps.

    CP3 is only going to give you 15 or so PPG.

    Hes no longer aggresively looking for his shot like he did under Byron Scott in New Orleans. Having to shoulder such a load of scoring as well as creating for others is what led to his injuries.

    Jordan has no offensive impact, Griffin will give you his 22 PPG, and I'd be shocked if Caron Butler averaged over 15 PPG without shooting below 40% from the Field.

    At the very least Smith would come right in and knock down open 3's all game. The greatest asset of a PG/PF combo is that it leaves the shooters open on the wing.

    He would attempt anything. Seen him try to 360 a layup in traffic for no reason. He'll never be a smart player but he's fun to watch and when he's on he goes crazy.

    I reaaaally hope sometime before he turns 30 he finds a team that's basically tanking and doesn't have any star caliber players to really develop and are willing to give him 35+ minutes a night and do his thing. Wouldn't lead to wins but entertainment for sure, if you weren't a fan of that team anyways.

    Wanna place a wager with me right now?

    Griffin will average 24+ ppg this year. CP3 will average 19+ ppg. They are going to raise each other up big. I'm willing to bet you a 1 month avy on this if you want. We can cash in at all star break or end of season, up to you.

    Hes never been "the man" so why would he want to be "the man" now?

    Hes always played his role as a 6th Man, even when Melo left and Denver badly needed someone to step in and fill his void. Smith kept producing at the same rate off the bench, instead of trying to take over every game like some people thought he would.

    JR could've been "the man" for a bad NBA team, but he enjoys winning.

    Lets be honest he would/could average 25 PPG in Charlotte or Toronto and go to the All Star Game.

    I'll take your word for it. I'm sure I haven't watched as much JR as you. When I've seen him... he seems to have a questionable shot selection and take way more shots than he should. Honestly though is he an upgrade to Billups who put up like 17.5 ppg, 5 rpg, 5.5 apg or w/e last year?

    You also forgot to mention all crazy ways of celebrating he would bring to table.

    Deal.

    Blake needs a mid-range jumpshot, and CP3 has no intentions of attempting to go for 20+ every night. What he did in New Orleans would show you that hes taking a different, better approach to the game.

    Blake doesn't make CP3 better because Blake doesn't require a double team at this stage of his career, CP3 makes Blake better tho.

    WTF dude? Blatant trolling? Only player who saw more doubles/defensive attention last year than Griffin is Howard. Which is exactly why I said CP3 will see a boost. The doubles= wide open 3's for a much improved outside shot by CP3. I'm sure you'll watch a lot of Clippers games this year and see what I'm talking about.
