    I knew that at the beginning of the season the Clippers would be the most exciting team in the NBA. The athleticism of Griffin, Jordan and Gordon is unreal. It just sucks that they had a lot of injuries to start the season or they would most likely be a .500 team. They clippers don't need to take on any more contracts. They'll pick up the options on Blake, DJ and Gordon's contract but in two years they're gonna have to pay them so might as well stay under the cap until then.

    Nah, after the CBA next year the contracts are going to decrease so no point in saving that much cap for later. I think using it now on a solid SF that is a good defender and can shoot 3's will be worth it in the end. A player like Pietrus or Ariza.

    Proposed Fantasy Trade:

    DJ Augustin for JRich. Thoughts?

    Only if you're getting JRich.

    I say Agustin has better value, JRich isn't the main offensive option in the Magic, he takes a big hit in points and only provides some 3's. Agustin has been scoring and getting assists lately.

    though as a writer, it would have been nice to credit the guy who did the work, and maybe link to his website?
    griffin is a monster and a terrifically fun player to watch. but i can't help cringing sometimes ... a guy who goes that high and that hard on every play ... let's just hope he stays healthy. i think this is one spot where oft-injured bynum may have an edge ... he's brittle, but he plays a back-to-the-basket, feet on the ground game, seems much lower risk.

    I love Blake Griffin's enthusiasm. Shame as he gets older it will fade more and more...

    Some of these assholes should remember their early years in the league when they weren't jaded.

    I just copied and pasted an article from another forum. Googled the title and found it: http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news?slu...clippers011711

    i think i'll keep augustin. he is my assist leader since baron davis can't be trusted these days.

    on the topic, did everyone square up the $20 for the SF fantasy league?

    Griffin is probably already on the list of top 10 most untradeable players...

    Kobe
    Howard
    Durant
    Nowitzki
    Lebron
    Wade
    Griffin
    Curry
    Deron
    Maybe Love

    Not saying that he's already at their level, but do you think any decent GM would listen to a trade offer not involving those guys? I don't think he'd even be traded straight up for guys like Melo, Amare or Granger

    I bought him for $9.00 in my other fantasy league...

    Partially because of posts in here.
