If Clippers take Griffin, its poor Rubio!!!!!!!!

For a guy who wanted to live and play in NY, an Italian guy, stuck in OKC or Memphis for 4 years!!!!!!


It's like a bad sitcom.

I think the Clippers will trade down. Honestly, if they remain healthy and add depth, they are a decent team so I don't see why not trade down for more picks and a role player ala New England Patriots.

HUGE mistake.

Forget the now. If you take Griffin, you've got Griffin, Thornton, and Gordon as a core going forward.

Thorton isn't that good.

If you start rebuilding right now then you've basically signed Baron Davis to that HUGE contract for no reason. The whole point of him coming to L.A. other than Elton Brand was so he could win at home. Also, the Clippers already have a log jam of big men. Where will Griffin get minutes between Randolph, Kaman and Camby? All three expect to get 30-35 minutes per.

The bench is good for the Clippers if they move Ricky Davis and add a solid back up small forward and replace R. Davis with a shooting guard who doesn't need the ball to be effective.

And I'll reiterate, the Clippers can not fully rebuild with Baron Davis' fat contract eating up their cap room.

So they'll trade him. There are plenty of teams who need a PG of Davis' ability. Someone will give you cap space for him......

Nah he has his Spanish National Team teammate Marc Gasol in Memphis.

Gasol enjoyed Memphis when he was here.

+1.

Ricky Davis has no role on the Clippers.

Baron's contract will be very hard to move, hes still due $12 Million + for the next 4 seasons.

ZBO is impossible to move, hes lockerroom and on the court cancer.

Kaman could get dealt, there are still a few GM's who know how effective he is when healthy.

Camby will get dealt, good veteran big man expirer.
