Default Blake Griffin for Lamarcus Aldridge

it has been reported that Aldridge's camp asked portland to trade him.

so if Clippers want to win now. should they trade Griffin for Aldridge?

Portland gets raped in this trade. I would legit be concerned about the Clippers if this happened. Contenders

Clippers turn this down without hesitation, for various reasons.

From a basketball standpoint, it has some validity for the Clippers. Theyre stuck with Deandre Jordans contract, at least for now, Aldridge is a better fit next to him.

However there is too much $ to be made marketing Griffin in LA. For that reason, Clippers wouldnt even consider it.


Griffin does have some room to improve and if he DOES then he'll def be better than Aldridge. But some gys just cant shoot no matter how hard they work. If Griffin cant confidently hit jumpers with reasonable consistency, he'll never match the hype he started with.

Im sure Aldridge would rather be traded to a contender. Lamarcus could lose in the first round on his own with the Blazers.

Default Re: Blake Griffin for Lamarcus Aldridge

not only he is much younger, much more marketable, and has much more room for improvement, you could argue griffin is already better than aldridge...

so this is probably worse than any hawkfan trade scenario

I can't see him being better then Aldridge to be honest, Aldridge has great length, plays the right way, is clutch and is steadily becoming a true leader. Not many flaws on this big fella. Griffins lack of length is always going to hurt him and unless Chris Paul suddenly wants to play to his front courts strength and Run n Gun i can't see the clippers going far

As a Lakers fan, I sincerely hope the Clippers front office share your sentiments.

Default Re: Blake Griffin for Lamarcus Aldridge

Man, Blake is quickly becoming one of the leagues most underrated guys. Let's look at their averages from this past season (Points|Reb|Ast|Stl|Blk):

LMA: 21.1 | 9.9 | 2.6 | 0.8 | 1.2 on 48.8|81.0 shooting with 1.9 Turnovers | 2.5 Fouls in 37.7 minutes per game on 17 shots per game.
Biff: 18.0 | 8,3 | 3.7 | 1.2 | 0.6 on 53.8|66.0 shooting with 2.3 Turnovers | 2.9 Fouls in 32.5 minutes per game on 13.4 shots per game.

So in 5.2 less minutes a night, 3.6 less shots, Blake scored a whopping 3.1 points less, grabbed an enormous 1.6 less rebounds, dished out more assists, had less blocks and shot nearly 5% better from the field. Spare me that Blake plays with Paul crock as well, considering Biff's rookie year.

Toss in defensive stats, according to synergy sports (Aldridge | Blake);

Overall FG%: 40.6 | 38.8
Overall Scored On%: 39.8 | 38.5

Isolation FG%: 49.1 | 36.7
Isolation Scored On%: 47 | 33

Post Up FG%: 37.7 | 43.2
Post Up Scored On%: 36.7 | 44.8

P&R Roll Man FG%: 47.7 | 27.9
P&R Roll Man ScoredOn%: 47.8 | 29.9

Better overall defender as well, not only by stats, but eye test to boot.

Toss in the fact that Biff is three years younger, has great chemistry with his team, has never complained, is much more marketable, still has room to grow, and actually generates revenue.

But, you know, Aldridge is so much better.

And Blake is only getting better. Can't wait untill Blake is seen as the 2nd best player in the game.

You don't see the Clippers offering Blake for LMA. There's a reason for that.

This offer is going to be ignored without even a second thought.
