Anyone else really want to see a Clippers vs Lakers playoff series next year or sometime in the next few years in a battle for LA?
If the Clippers can put it together and make the playoffs before Kobe retires.
No travel and a majority of the crowd is on your side, not bad. I am sure they split the season ticket holders and such, but unless there are a lot of band wagon fans, LA is a Lakers city. I am sure Blake Griffin and the Clipps will have supporters, but this scenario seems like Lakers gold.
funny you just used the word "bandwagon" directed at the Cips and used the term Lakers in the same sentence.
The 2008 first rounder turned into Ibaka, one of the league’s rising stars at the power forward position. Ibaka fits the mold perfectly for the Suns’ style of basketball. Even though his best years would have come after Nash’s prime, he still would have been a great piece to have a rebuild with. To lose him for nothing stings.
Ty Lawson – Pick originally owned by the Miami HEAT
In 2007 the Miami HEAT gave up a future first-round draft pick in a deal that sent Antoine Walker, Wayne Simien, and Michael Doleac to Minnesota for Ricky Davis and Mark Blount. That pick was rendered in 2009 and was used on Ty Lawson in the infamous Timberwolves draft where they took three point guards in the first round including Ricky Rubio and Jonny Flynn. Lawson, who up to this point is the best of the three, was immediately the odd man out.
Griffin, who underwent knee surgery to repair a meniscus tear, declared he was completely over the injury and can practice at full contact.
