    Ohhhh I thiught you meant just straight up tanking to keep the pick. I been trying to move Lou since last season. He’s awesome and has helped us a lot but he doesn’t fit with the plans. Sens him to Indy or something. Bev and Bradley too

    I’d agree with this philosophy generally, but the fact that the most likely playoff scenario for us this season is us facing the Warriors in round 1 complicates things. I think it would be an easy sweep for them. So I don’t know how much value there is for any of our players in getting killed by GSW.

    I actually would love that matchup the best. Facing curry 4 times when he’s actually trying 100%...invaluable experience for Shai imo. And he’d be playing with house money. We sweep and Curry avgs 35 on him? Fine. It was supposed to happen.

    We steal a game and Shai has a good series? Oh man....

    Bruh- winning is nice, but do we really have to be playing from behind in every game? Jeez...

    STOP STARTING BOTH GORTAT AND BRADLEY

    They're not getting away with it in the first, and it kills them in the 3rd quarter. They're 27th in the league in 3rd quarter ppg. Team is leaps and bounds better w/Lou and Trez on the floor.

    Random but Porzingis, Kawhi, Jimmy, and a couple others that I'm forgetting all had the Clippers on their short list for trade destinations.

    Who knows who the Clips land in FA, but it's obvious that players are and will consider the Clippers in FA and for a team that got an owner 5 years ago, that's pretty good.

    Like, for the first time the Clippers will actually be able to sell the city of Los Angeles, great FO, and an esteemed well respected coach in free agency. On top of that, they put out a good product even when devoid of "stars." First time that the Clips have Ballmer, Jerry West, + a huge chunk of cap space to work with in Free agency.

    Welp :rofl: :rofl:

    It was obvious, man. Based on how they've moved, they were going to do something. Credit Lawrence and the FO for not getting caught up in the 8th seed.

    They traded Blake damn Griffin, no one was off the table. Interested in seeing where this goes next.

    As a Sixers fan, I just want to say thanks guys. Hopefully you guys get AD in a trade and sign Kawhi over the summer.

    I went to bed early last night, so I didn’t find out about the trade until I woke up. Wow. Was not expecting this move, but I’m not made.

    Tobi and Bobi, thank you for your service. Good luck in Philly.

    ^^^ I haven’t paid any attention to college ball outside of checking out some Zion highlights. That’s it.

    Got rid of Bradley and will likely waive Gortat today. What a great day. Hope this means more Jerome. Let’s see what Zubac can do

    I heard Don McClean on the radio yesterday and he said he still thinks the team’s goal is to make the playoffs. That makes sense since they kept Gallo, Bev and Lou. Plus, the guys they added in Chandler, Temple and Zubac are capable players. So, we’ll see what happens. Honestly, I like where we’re at whether we make the playoffs or not.

    This strategy of falling behind 20 points every game is kinda dope

    The Clips got a potential blue chip prospect that could be thrown in an Anthony Davis deal for an expiring (Tobias)

    That's like...Wow.

    Shamet is being paid pennies for the next 3 seasons and the Clips got that, plus the heat's 2021 unprotected for Tobias Harris's expiring contract.

    That's GREAT WORK.
