Let me just get this out of the way.
The Clippers have issues. But every team not named the Warriors have issues. Only one team can win a ring.
Currently, we are set to face a historically great team in the 2nd round without homecourt. That's not an excuse, that is what it is. There are no trades or moves that can alleviate that formality.
Now do I think the Clippers can beat the spurs and GSW in a playoff series w/o homecourt? Yes. It's unlikely, and I wouldn't put money on the clippers, but I definitely give them a shot. They are very good against the elite and despite their flameouts in the postseason, they have beaten the warriors, they have beaten the spurs, they should of beaten OKC, they are right there and you never know what could happen come april and may.
But even if we flame out again, trading blake or Chris Paul, while they are both under contract, is NOT the answer. Like I said, there's nothing out there that could make you more viable of a contender than what you have now. Keep working on trying to hit on some buy low guys and roll the dice again. You may as well keep the 26 year old superstar and CP is still a top pg in the league. As long as you have blake cp reddick and jordan you have a shot. As good of shot as any.
Trading Blake or CP is NOT the answer IMO
