    1. Here’s some interesting news: the Clippers and Celtics are discussing a trade that would send KG and Doc Rivers to LA for DeAndre Jordan and 2 first rounders. Apparently the Clippers don’t want to put Eric Bledsoe in the package, and that’s what is holding up the deal.

      Blake Griffin would have a hell of a mentor to learn from in Kevin Garnett. He could really expand Blake’s game to new heights if this happens. I want this to happen even if it only means we won’t have to worry about Melo’s shoulder being pulled out of socket in a playoff game.

    2. I really hope the Clippers blow up their team for a coach who, like all NBA coaches, couldn’t win a goddamn thing before he got good players and a 37-year-old who posted his worst WS48 since he was a teenager.

      That sounds really smart!

      Maybe they’ll trade for Doc and make George Karl the co-head coach so they can really win! I mean, look at what Karl did with all those low basketball IQ players and role players!

      Sounds smart. Everything is so smart.

      How about Howard signs with the Rockets, plays PF/C next to Asik and they win 60 games without changing a thing on their team. Okay. Break!
