Ha no choice really - without Blake or Chris Paul, they would have been a lottery team. They like making the playoffs and making money

Even if they make the playoffs, what’s the point? Treadmill move. Especially considering Blake can’t ever stay healthy.

Should have traded him and DJ this offseason and hit the reset button. Even the trade they made for Paul was very treadmill. Unless you think Sam Dekker is going to break out big. I like him, but not sure if that is happening.
Thon Bargnani no more. He has withstood the trials. 8 years of High School and the way to K'un-Lun is now open.

He is now the Iron Fist.

Ehhh not so fast. Kinda like the Russell Westbrook thinking. People say he had no help but they werent in a position to help. Maybe the Clips minus CP3's mechanical machine-like system will do better

Ie If you looked at Houston's roster last year they looked like a fringe playoff team at best. They ended up being a 3 seed bc of their style caterign ot its personnel.

If Doc can adjust to his personnel, they have some depth and could surprise a lot of people

They could surprise...if Doc "adjusts" himself out of the organization.

For the Clippers it was easy to bring back our best drafted player in the history of our organization. It also shows our franchise isn't going anywhere and wants to continue to chase for that chance at a championship.

We're creating that winning culture again her in LA, but for a different squad.

Milos Telodosic?,Pat Beverly, Austin Rivers
Sindarius Thornwell, Lou Williams
GALO, Sam Dekker, Wes Johnson
Blake Griffin, Motrezl Harrel
DeAndre Jordan,

They can always trade him for good assets, so why not. better than letting him leave for nothing

Yes, to remain competitive and attract other free agents. The Clippers can make the playoffs with this lineup:
PG: Beverly (S); Milos Teodosic (best player not in NBA)
SG: Rivers (S); Tony Allen; Williams
SF: Gallinari (S); Dekker
PF: Griffin (S); Harrell; Gallinari
C: Jordan (S); Griffin

Can Clippers trade for Marc Gasol for the expiring contracts of DJ and Williams plus FRP? I believe this trade (Jerry West, pls make this happen!) will vault the Clippers in the top three in the Western Conference.
