I'm also not convinced he goes to the Lakers if we don't make the PG trade. I think he stays in Toronto.


He was never staying in Toronto trust me. It was always the clippers. The Clippers were just bidding against themselves. The flight to Toronto, meeting with the Lakers, etc was just to negotiate with the Clippers. Toronto and OKC figured out the game early on. Toronto said thanks for the title and goodluck in LA. OKC said you want PG ? Well we need this...

Legitimately contending for championships would have made the trade worth it. More Lob City second-round exits, though? No thanks, I'd rather have the picks.

I hear you but really its all about right now though.. not 2-3 years down the line- drafting a player and hoping and praying he turns into a Kawhi, PG, Dame, Giannis, AD, etc. Its all about right now! You're thinking years down the line and really Covid-19 is here killing everything in its path.. the NCAA didn't even have March Madness, empty NFL and MLB stadiums, etc. Everything is up in the air right now as far as the future of sports is concerned. The NBA might even have a much lower salary cap next year. Yeah I didn't like that we gave up a lot but man you gotta do **** right now cause tomorrow isn't promised. You got the Rams opening up their new $5 billion dollar stadium right now and no fans are allowed. I stay around the corner from the new stadium and non of the businesses are capitalizing off its presence because of Covid. And I definitely hear you but there's no promise and guarantee for any of this sports sh*t right now especially with draft picks and hoping they pan out.

It's only about right now because we traded the future away. And what's happening right now wasn't worth it. If we were told immediately after making the PG trade that we would lose in the second round, we'd think it was just haters being delusional.

You think opening the new arena would be rough without making this trade? Just imagine how bad it's going to be with no Kawhi, no PG and no draft picks. That's what's actually going to happen if big changes aren't made this offseason, and I'm not confident that Ballmer has the balls to make those changes. Kawhi and PG aren't sticking around for second-round exits.


PG has no real value. If you could trade KL2 this summer, I'd do it. At least save face.

I don't agree that PG has no value. There's plenty of desperate teams out there looking for "star power" (no matter how fake it is) to put butts in seats. We wouldn't get the return that OKC got, but I could see the Logo doing well in a trade.

OKC needed star power and they had no interest. Max dollars, injury prone, and no real impact especially come playoff time. No sane team wants any part of that.

Is there a trade involing AG + ? for PG interesting for you guys ? I dont have a clue whats PG value on expiring right now.
Bold Predictions:
1. Deandre Ayton biggest disappointment of 2018 draft.
2. Nick Nurse becomes Orlando Magic Head Coach. (15.04.2018)

To be honest, I'd like to see this team with another coach before doing major trades like involves PG. It's not wise to trade him now when his value is all time low that you know you aren't gonna get much inexchange.

Ah yes. Now we're slandering our best player. Love it.

Please do not celebrate when we win. It's obvious you're rooting for a big fat L.

ToLd YoU sO!

Typical "can't critique our players or staff. GTFO mentality" Whats wrong with not liking the trade from the get-go? From my Lurking MTV hated the trade and wanted Doc fired waay before the elimination game against the Nuggs (Kudos MTV). Basically, what's wrong with him being critical of the team he likes instead of a blind homer?

IMO Clip need to run it back with PG and Kawhi. Make a decision on Trez then fill out the roster best you can. LAC is still Los Angels so they should be able to attract players. The problem is ya'll did that last year and the mercenary route didn't work. Just hope Kawhi doesn't "load manage" often and the team can build and practice different rotations during the season for the playoffs.

I doubt PG will ever win a championship as a #2. He's no Pippen. He needs to be the third best player on a team, with the reduced pressure that goes along with that.

Return to Los Angeles Clippers
