Rubio never mentioned wanting to play in a huge market, I personally thought it would help better promote him to the masses.

Rubio fits in Memphis, its not as high profile and he has his teammate Marc Gasol here to help him adjust to the NBA lifestyle.

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.

We'll see he's already been traded twice recently. And I highly doubt Camby will leave unless for a promising young player. Camby is needed to teach Deandre Jordan.

It's a good day to be a Clipper fan (how often can you say that?).

Landing the #1 pick was the only way out of tailspin and we did it.

Gordon + Griffin might be a legit championship level core down the road if Griffin can achieve a young McDyess level.

Thorton needs to be traded. Kaman needs to be traded.

I'd love to have Kaman traded for Tayshaun Prince - we need a defender/facilitator at the 3 spot.

Not calling myself an expert, but after spending some time in Spain and a little bit of online research you will see that Spain in not Italy or France. Spainish cuisine is not internationally famous. It is kind of like England where you will find two or three signature dishes that represent their culture, but overall the food doesn't stand out that much. That being said, very few places are famous for their food like France or Italy or Chinese cuisine. That being said, Spain is an amazing place that I can't wait to go back to visit again.

*sigh* if only they were the Nashville Grizzlies...Memphis isn't great, but Nashville's actually pretty cool.

Last year, yes. Hell, almost any year, YES, but this draft is way too weak to trade down

It's like a bad sitcom.

It wouldn't be a bad situation at all in OKC maybe living wise yes but a Durant, Jeff Green, Westbrook & Rubio core looks damn good if Rubio is as good as I believe he's going to be.

If Durant, Green, and Westbrook are so good, why did they win only 23 games?

If you are from Spain, I would think living in OKC would be a nightmare.....no offense..........

Maybe because overall the roster sucks. surely you are not implying that those 3 are not good young players.
