I hope CP3 gets traded to the Pistons. I would love to see Lob City 2.0 wreak havoc in the East. Only threat to us was the Warriors. And injuries. And sometimes 3rd string bench guys... Drummond would be an upgrade over DJ so hopefully some of those issues wouldn't come up.

Um, they might not ask him if he approves but do you think Blake would approve of the Pistons trading for CP3?

i find that a lot of times teammates who don't play nicely with each other tend to realize the grass isn't often greener on the other side.

i wouldn't be surprised if they were ok with each other. but is there actual chatter on that front?

Yeah I mean I thought Lob City had great chemistry, until the media made us feel like doodoo for losing. Think back to all those commercials with Blake and CP3, that one comedy skit show "BGCP3 in HD", and all those lobs. Now think about Harden and CP3's super awkward commercials (not even awkward in a good way like Paul George's acting in the Terminator commercial), lack of chemistry on the court, and his quick departure.

Definitely think they've realized the grass is greener on the other side.

If Paul didn’t make such a massive amount of money, he would actually be a perfect two way PG fit next to George and Leonard. He still impacts defense quite well despite his lack of size and his older age. Of course even if it was mildly realistic, which it isn’t, don’t know how that would work with him and Doc back together, but it would be an easy decision to swap him for Beverley if that was remotely realistic.

Saw Paul after the Philly game saying “they finally let me hoop”. I thought that was interesting, I’ve caught a couple of their games, they try to spread the offense around, they have pretty good ball movement, shots are distributed, but realistically, they would likely be much better on offense and as a team if Paul controlled the offense more and they put him at 32-33 mpg.

They definitely have been trying to keep their trade assets healthy though because Adams is playing 26 mpg, his lowest since playing 25.2 mpg in 15-16 and Gallo is at 29.5 mpg, lowest since playing 24.2 mpg in 14-15 when he came back from missing a whole season.

Blake would also be a decent upgrade over Patrick Patterson.
