Blake doesn't require a double team.

That was my point.

It isnt hard to see why Blake received double teams for the Clippers last year when you look at his usage rate, but then you look at their number of losses as well which makes it understandable.

With CP3 & others improving this team, I highly doubt any team will need to double him. They know where he gets his baskets and they know where he can't shoot from, which is anywhere 10 feet out.

Anybody can do drugs. Not exclusive to "thugs". If you want to stereotype Bird I'd probably say he'd fit into the "hick" area more so than thug. Stereotyping NBA players based on tatoo's and drug suspensions is pretty stupid tho.

Yep, thats how people see it.

I dont care tbh. Birdman seems like a cool dude and knowing his background story, I have a lot of respect for him.

Let me ask this. If you admit CP3 makes Griffin better why will Griffin's PPG stay the same despite his shot attempts likely increasing? Then with Griffin's passing ability and court vision why won't CP3's scoring go up? His knee is supposedly healthier and he will be much more wide open with the weapons Clippers have. There isn't a single player you can leave open in our starting 5. Even DeAndre will dunk on you and get team/crowd pumped if you leave him.
