Livingston is untouchable.

Ok, for like TD or something like that.

It doesn't make sense for the Clippers to trade him, since Sam I Am will play maybe two more years at most. By then Livingston will be ready to take over reins of the point guard position.

Livingston is the most overrated prospect in the West Coast (Al Jefferson takes the league crown).

His talent is that he's too scared to assert himself in terms of scoring, so he just makes the right pass at the right time and comes off with an assist cause he's on a talented team. Apparently, nowadays all you have to do is pass the ball the second you touch it becuase you're too scared to get stripped or miss a shot and you're the next Magic Johnson. If I had the endurance and the height I could be doing what he's doing right now. Court vision and length. That's nice but what else does he have going for him exactly? You wouldn't trade him for an MVP candidate? Brent Barry has court vision and a three pointer. You don't see the Spurs hesitating to trade him for an MVP candidate. I guess he just isn't young enough to draw interest.

The Clippers don't have the contracts to swap out to get AI, unless they want to gut their roster.

The Clippers don't have any bad contracts.

Smith had read my mind. Why the hell would we give up a bonafide scoring machine with 25+ points seasons still ahead of him for garbage role players and picks? Unless the picks will garauntee we will get Oden and still have above average roleplayers left from the deal, I say screw that. All these homers on the board thinking that Iverson will come thier way with no sacrifaces is just plain ludicrous.
I can't believe people think Childress and someone else plus picks, or Boozer and a pick,or Al Jefferson blah blah blah, was going to be a reality.
It reminds me of fantasy basketball when some guy wants to offer you three half decent player for your top fantasy producer. They know it's not going to happen but they still make the attempt.

Camby + Dre Miller for AI is just terrible trade for the Sixers. How you guys think its a great trade for both teams and not see it as simply to the benefit of the Nuggets is beyond me.

Seems like the best move the can make right now, I would just wait until the trading deadline though. Teams are more desperate...
