Loyalty is useless. This is a business.

Although Dwight should really shut up, especially his "God wants me traded" comments.

With a (hopefully) improving Brandon Jennings, more shooters and scorers (Dunleavy, Udrih, Stephen Jackson) for him to pass to, and a healthy Bogut, the Bucks can...oh who the fuck am I kidding? Soon there will only be 6 teams with talent. Who wants to join me in trying out for the other 24?

idk if I'm the right size for center. I can establish good inside presence but at 6'3 I might get dominated by the elite centers like D12.

does Miami still not have a point guard? I'm pretty good at standing around while the best players on the team pass to each other.

"It's been a long offseason and a lot of the guys look great and have been taking care of their bodies," he said. "It was a blessing in disguise for me to have some time off and continue to heal . . . I actually grew a half-inch. I'm 6-foot-11 now with my shoes on because of my posture. I'm 260, 8% body fat. I feel like a beast."

Bledsoe is still on the team, they traded kaman

Hornets got the better end of the deal.
Sure
CP3
Griffin
Butler
Billups

but cp3 might only stay there 2 seasons. So thats a huge risks and having an owner like donald sterling, lol.

yeah i fixed my post. Clips still have to do work, they might be very good this year, but Butler is aging and has a history of being injured, Billups is old, and who else do they really got besides DeAndre Jordan who might not even turn out to be worth all the money they are giving him

Yeah i feel this year is their run to make it to the finals but that's it. All the Sports Radio guys here are going nuts over this and i tried calling but couldnt get in and there was this guy who i totally agreed with that they gave up a 22yr old Eric Gordon, other players and the T'Wolves First round draft pick which has the chance on being in the top5 for a chris paul who might not stay there long and is injury prone. I kinda of wanted chris paul because he would stay here and him/bynum would be the face of the lakers once kobe retires so they would build around them.

It's always interesting to find out how professional sports players learn they're being traded. For all the things franchises do right, it seems trades are handled in incredibly awkward ways. Perhaps it's because teams try to keep negotiations quiet and can't keep up with the speed of social media or something.

Whatever the reason, it leads to fun stories like Eric Gordon finding out he was a part of the trade that sent Chris Paul to the Clippers in somewhat embarrassing fashion. Gordon was on a bus with all sorts of loyal Clippers fans.

Gordon was on a bus with Clips season-ticket holders, going to fan stops, when he got the news. "Awkward," one says. Another: "Looked sad."


"Directly in front of you, you'll see a man who's just been traded to an absolutely gutted team."

Since he was essentially trapped on a bus, I'd imagine he had to finish out the fan stops, as well. Not a good day for Eric Gordon.

the way i look at it, no doubt the clippers overpaid. however, this might be the only way to convince blake griffin to stay long term.

howard is the most dominant player in the game.
any elite team who lands him is instantly in the finals.
