Default swap blake griffin with kevin love - are the clippers better?

kevin love is a better player in my eyes but a big part of the clippers game is the run and gun, above the rim type of play

personally, i think kevin love playing next to deandre jordan would make the clippers so much better

Most def. Let's go to another level and swap Deandre with Pekovic.

Just think about amountless pick & pop with Love & Paul.

Yes, significantly. A much better rebounder plus he's the mold of a stretch 4 with shooting touch that extends so far he's considered a consistent 3 point thread? Better individual player, but most importantly he's a better 'piece' because floor spacing gets better, CP3 can drive and kick w/o two meatheads clogging up the middle. Deandre also gets free'd up to P&R, catch lobs, and show off some of his new offensive moves that he's worked on (something Blake doesn't do). Love is also a hard worker himself, as he can do more with less, which is a great improvement in the lockerroom. Everything gets better. Clippers with Love would be a scary team.

They're a young ass team, no true leader, Rubio can't shoot for shit, and injuries. A healthy Wolves would've contended for the 8th seed. Plus, you wouldn't be able to define empty stats to me anyway.

Give CP3 Kevin Love and they'll play the PnR game reminiscing his good old days with David West, but Love can shoot the 3 and rebound.

Yeah they are, but not significantly.
Clippers need defense, Love is one of the worst defenders at the PF position.
Blake is bad at defense too, but the increase in offense from Love will lead to more regular season wins, but early play-off exits every year.

Yes theyd be much better. It'd open more lanes for CP3 to operate, since defenses would have to play love on the perimeter honestly.

As for the people saying "empty stats, look at the wolves record" Yes this is true out of context, but if you look at it in context, you would know the wolves have been battling with major injuries to key players the last 2 seasons. Rubio's rookie season (2 years ago), the wolves were on pace to earn the 8th seed. But injuries can and will happen. they look healhty this year. So well see if his stats are still seen as empty by season end.

Defense is a wash, but Clips get a slight upgrade in rebounding and pick and pops would be better. Griffin is better at rolling to the basket though.

Love can't bring his team to the playoffs, not even to fight for the last spot. And it's not like he got a shit team.
