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.

The Bucks are ridiculously good and so well-coached. Giannis isn't even playing tonight, and you wouldn't even know it.

BG back home to OKC. Pistons are capped out with Blake and are a first-round exit at best. Didn't Presti already put the word out he'll accept bad contracts if they come with along with assets/draft picks?

Need a third team--Offload Gallo's $22M to a contender like Portland--he can help this year and expires this summer, meaning they're not stuck with him. Portland would pump something into the asset pool.

Lobahoma City. Might even get JJ to agree to a buyout in NO, which they'd be happy to accept.

I'd love to see it. They all deserve each other. :lol:

Nice, Shai is dropping 20/20/10 games now putting himself in legendary company (Russ Westbrook only did a 20/20/10 TD once, and after breaking Shaq's record he's the youngest to put up a TD with 20/20). I see why West didn't wanna trade him for AD or PG13................................................................ Why is it that whoever trades for Paul George regrettably parts with two stars lol?

Couple of questions for clippers fans. Did shai have a step back three last year? In the would cp3 somewhat regularly lose his dribble for no reason when he tries to iso or get fancy?

Shai didn't have a step back 3 last year, that's a new weapon. Everyone just knew that as a three point shooter he had a very high ceiling. As for CP3, that just happens to point guards sometimes who try to sauce. Maybe he's a tad bit sloppier now due to age, but he's still obviously the point gawd. You guys literally have our two greatest point guards in franchise history. I hate you guys, because that's exactly what we need right now lol. Don't be greedy, give us one!
