Clips Adding Iggy Make Them Fastbreak Nightmare

With The Return Of Blake Griffin From Injury, The Emergence of Eric Gordon During Fiba And The Continuing Success Of Baron Davis The Clips Are Shaping Up To Be A Fun Team:

All they are really missing is that extra athlete and what to do with Kamen once Griffin starts dominating the touches in the low post. Deandre Jordan is just itching for the chance to prove he will dunk anything with 8 feet of the basketball and block all that as well. If The Clips rid themselves of Kamen who slows them down and takes touches away from their up and coming players they could be one of the funnest teams to watch in the NBA. It is not a secret the Clips are not winning anything with Kamen as the Franchise Center and Jordan can Dunk, Rebound, and Block. Enter Iguadola who would fit perfect in their system.

B Diddy
Eric Gordon
Iggy
Blake Griffin
D. Jordan
with Bledsoe, Foye, Hawes and Aminue

Thats a fun lineup that will be able to run and jump with any team and give fans a reason to go to Clipper games.

When all else fails post a video: Is Iggy not one of the Top 3 in game dunkers in the league?

In theory its good but

In theory its good but trading a guy who takes majority of his teams shots for another guy who also takes a majority of his teams shots doesnt really translate and Deandre Jordan is far from ready to start

@WizKid im not really sure I

@WizKid im not really sure I understand why you don't think that trading 2 players for each other the each take a majority of their team's shot is a bad idea. For one Iggy should not be taking the majority of the shots here in Philadelphia the only reason he does is because he has too. Expect Evan Turner, and Jrue Holiday to steadily take away Iggy's shot attempts if he stays in Philly not to mention most people in this city like Thad Young more anyway. And I disagree about Jordan, I think he is ready to start this will be his 3rd year in the league and the Clips should start him now so he can grow alongside Blake Griffin because I think they could pose a formidable lost post 1-2 punch with all that strength and athleticism.

I was hoping the Clips would of got Gay this summer too, I'm not sure if Aminu is the best fit for them because I think that he would be better off as a power forward in the east.

I agree. I forgot about

I agree. I forgot about Aminu! You're right he is very raw as a 3 but his energy will help. They could really make a jump this year adding 3 first rounders.

Yeah the Clips have a nice

Yeah the Clips have a nice lineup to me they are one super athletic wing away from being one of the Funnest teams to watch in the League. Bledsoe down the road is going to be a really good player for them. Him and Eric Gordon could develop into one of the fastest and strongest backcourts in the league. Tho they are both short, they both are strong and have more then enough length to cover their primary positions. I think Eric Gordon is going to have a fantastic year and possibly average around 20 points. I really think Paul George or Xavier Henry would of been better picks in the draft. They fit the Clips roster better then Aminu to me. Mainly because I think Aminu is best suited at the 4 because his outside shooting and perimeter skill have a long ways to go. Cole Aldrich wouldn't of been a bad pick either if they are looking to unload Kamen for another wingman which they should be doing. I really like Kamen but if Blake's healthy I think having another stud wing will be more beneficial to them then Kamen like Olympian and gold medal winner Andre Iguadola his body and game is tailored made for that team and not only that Kobe Bryant himself once said on his short list of players who he don't like be guarded by that Iggy is right there with anybody. Iggy always plays Kobe extra tough and got the strengh, quickness, and length to really give Kobe fits because Iggy even keeps up wit Kobe breaking down the court and jumping to contest oops.

What happens to Speights if

What happens to Speights if the Sixers get Kamen? Speights is more of a power forward anyway and in the trade i posted Spencer Hawes is a part of it. So its pretty much a wash as to what's going to happen to Speights this year because there is rumor Collins is going to start Hawes at center anyway and bring Speights who is like instant offense off there bench where because of his lack of defense may be best suited. But I'm really high on Speights and is convinced that had he stayed a year would of been a top 5 pick coming out as a JR.
