Aldridge has never been better than Griffin which is funny considering Griffin's only played 2 seasons and Aldridge has played 5 or 6. Aldridge may be more refined but Griffin's all around impact and production is superior. What's scary is Aldridge is in his prime, Griffin is nowhere near it.
I think you guys make trade threads and simply factor in raw talent rather than thinking like a GM. Griffin is younger, has more upside and is already better. Not to mention he's locked up for 6 years. Bledsoe at his small contract and with his upside is more valuable than 13 mill a year Batum. Only aspect Clippers win in this trade is Batum for Odom+Butler+2 1st rounders.
