    There's a good chance the Clippers at least explore moving before the trade deadline. It's become crystal clear that he's a horse and will be starting somewhere next season at the very latest. Three questions for the board

    1.) Would we want him as our long-term PG?

    if so...

    2.) What would LAC's demand be? (keep in mind, they're in win-now mode. I don't think a developmental prospect is what they're looking for).

    3.) Who would you be willing to give up for him?

    Another bledsoe thread?... i dont hink bledsoe is as good as every one thinks. i think if anyone on this board was the clippers PG the could look moderatly decent. heck if you air ball it grif or jordan jump up and grab it and they call it an assist. i think if he played in an enviroment where he was the main fiddle it wouldnt have such a nice sound.

    again.. he is playing with two big shot blockers in jordan and grif. he is on a very well built team right now that makes his job much easier. i dont think he is a dimond in the rough. i think he is a part of these wedding bands you can buy now that are covered with little flakey dimonds. but when you take one of those flakey dimonds away from the ring it just dosent have the same glimmer. (this is and anolgy of bledsoe.) he looks better due to who is around him.

    It would make perfect sense for both teams. But i think if we throw only 1 pick and give Tinsley to them they would be ok with it. Cause they would love to have Milsap instead of Odom. Odom's contribution has been weak all year.

    Griffin averages 0.6 blocked shots a game both per game this season and for his career.

    blake is still a defensive force. to bad they dont have a stat for altered shots. he contributes in the paint. pg know that he is there.

    but i guess we wont know until he gets traded to another team and we get to see him get over paid to struggle and under achieve what so many though he was worth on a team full of good players.

    he is a big guy that takes up space in the paint. he forces gaurds to move and alter thier shot? how is that not a defensive presence?.. big all plays madidor defense. i hate blake, but the guy is a presence in the paint and he does affect shots. and even if blake is only a 4th of the defended jordan is thats still enough to make it easier on bledsoe.
    so back to my main point. if bledsoe was on a sub par team where he was more responsible he wouldnt look as good.

    I dont want Bledsoe at all, he is not a good shooter at all and also isnt a pass first point guard.

    Yeah, Tinsley's been okay but I think it's time to give Watson his chance with the reins.

    paul has been hurt. he has been playing most of the minutes. this is why everyone is so high on him right now. he is getting starter minutes and everyone is excited about his production.
