Is the bold your only reasons for why you think building around griffin is better than bulding around cp3 to win titles asap?

I have never stated that Clippers would be better off winning titles with Blake over Paul. In fact, I believe I have been the most critical of any of the regular Clipper fans on Blake on this forum. When I did a mock for the 09 draft, I believe, I wanted Greg Monroe over Blake Griffin due to the fact I thought, at that point, that Blake got buy in college due to his strength and athleticism and did not believe it would translate well into the pros. But I was totally incorrect on that aspect as Blake has shown he has high IQ and is as big a workhorse as Elton Brand was reported to be and is improving his weakest areas, such as his defense and jumper. Just needs the confidence now.

I just don't believe that trading Griffin would get the Clippers closer to the promised land unless they get someone LeBron or totally rape the other side.

Broseph, this is what i've been trying to say this whole time, they could easily rip a team off and get assets upon assets for BG alone.

why are we arguing if we both agree that it wouldn't be a bad trade if they were able to completly rip the other team off?

I'm talking really rip them off.

Bump. Reggie tonight stated what I've been saying since last year. Clips aren't winnin in the playoffs if Griffin doesn't develop a jumper or post game. It didnt look like he worked on a single thing this summer

He got dominated by Jordan Hill, who is a phenomenal hustle player but if Blake Griffin is supposed to be a franchise player, that can't happen.

Clippers are yet again a soft team.

He gets them $$, because he's a highlight reel.

But I agree. If he can't use his athletic ability in a fundamental post game, or develop a jumper, he'll always be good only for put backs, dunks and alley oops. U can't win in the playoffs with such limited repertoire.

In addition, he's not a good defender or rim protector for his physical ability. He doesn't like to get dirty.

Who would care about Clippers if they don't have Griffin.

He is the face of NBA along with couple of names. It doesn't even matter if he is not as good as he is told.
