    There is no need to trade Baron. I like Eric Bledsoe but he's not ready to be a starter and when Baron is motivated to play he is one of the best pgs in the league. Plus he has great chemistry with Blake and theres no way Denver will want Baron and his contract.
    The bolded part is key here. He's a complete team killer when he's not. But you have to give up talent to get talent, and he's the only nice piece I can think of not named Griffin or Gordon. and the Clippers are deepest at PG

    Anyway, i don't think it will happen either, just dreaming of the possibilities.

    Get rid of Kaman, that is their best bet. I like Kaman, I think he is skilled and being ambidextrous and his jumper is a big plus but he just slows down the game for the Clips who is now a fast paced team. He is also a liability on the post, the ball goes to him and he either turns it over or shoots a horrible turn around fade away, really made his jumpers a double edge sword. I would really rather Blake & Jordan start and have Diogu & Smith back them up. Trade Kaman for Melo and you got:

    Davis
    Gordon
    Melo
    Blake
    Jordan

    Now that would be a great team.

    i said at the beginning of the season that i thought the clippers had a great lineup ... if they could somehow avoid the clipper jinx. the lakers were a little flat yesterday, but the clips just flat outplayed them. i don't think they need to make any big deal trades. they're a young team that is just starting to jell. now, if they could only do something about sterling...

    who in their right mind would trade Kaman for Anthony? the only way that deal happens is if the clippers infiltrate the denver front office ... or maybe spike the watercooler.

    Not flat out but add some picks and maybe Aminu with Kaman and you got a pretty solid trade. If the Lakers were able to get Pau for Kwame Brown and the Wizards were able to get rid of the ridiculous Arenas contract out of Washington, anything is possible. Keep in mind, the Clips actually has the money to pay Melo too since they saved up this past off season to try and get Lebron too.

    I know this has probably been said over and over again, but Blake Griifin is the most exciting player to watch in the league right now.

    Todays stat line: 47 pts / 14 Rebs / 3 Asst / 1 Block 19 - 24 FG / 9-11 FT

    RIDICULOUS! ROTY! No Contest.

    Alba is not even a Clipper fan she's a B Diddy fan.

    I once hit on Jessica Alba (IRL). It did not end well.

    A least it wasn't a total rejection, I think bodyguards are paid to be like that. I ran into Christina Milian and her body guard almost killed me when I tried to talk to her.

    did you see those new NBA commercials that use old archival footage of superstars?

    there's the new one with Steve Nash from his days in Santa Clara. He actually dunks, well a baby barely there dunk, in it!

    Great game by the Celtics, KG, looked good, played D, swore up a storm/agitated the shit out of the Magic players and won the game for the C's.
