Well at least the Clips got something in return. Loved CP and glad he was able to make the Clippers franchise a consistent 50 game winner and playoff team, which is a feat in it of itself, but I suppose it was time. It just wasn't working. That 2015 season though. Ugh. That was their chance.

I don't think that joke of a organization was ever on his list.
One of the worst franchises in NBA history.

Now that I think about. It really wasn't a bad trade for the Clips. They got what they could. Some pieces that can play and some flexibility.


They weren't going anywhere with CP. He's becoming injury prone and only getting older. The Rockets are going to regret this big time. They aren't getting passed the Warriors or the Spurs anyway.


The Clippers will be better off in the long run.

I dont see Harden and CP3 functioning together either. Besides, everyone was lauding the move of Harden to the point?

Also, how does D. Jordan feel? Is he going to go to CP3's house and try to block the trade?

They have to work out Paul and Harden being PGs and lose their best defender plus 6th man. Not sure how that's enough.

Can the Clippers get Rubio?

Beverly, Rubio, Anderson, Dekker, Crawford, Redick, Griffin, Jordan, Rivers, Lou Williams, Speights...

Stacked!

but according to the all defense teams, CP3 is a better defender than beverley, def a better passer and ball handler.

paul and harden are def going to have a hard time sharing the ball though. d'antoni is going to try to turn paul into steve nash except they have zero pick and roll bigs really.

pick and pop/roll with harden?

I'd say Beverly is the better defender, but less name recognition than Paul. Paul is also going to be 33 going into next year's playoffs.
