    Yes, Wood had a good season last year - after struggling to stay in the league... he's a guy with tremendous upside that we hope will continue to advance - but it is a gamble...

    Kief? Yeh most all wanted him - as a buyout person on a min contract...

    Drummond is a decent player... 2 time all-star in 2016 and 2018... so a fringe all-star...

    Kennard who played 28 games last year... never been an all-star...

    and we're really gonna compare WB's running mates with Blake's? You gotta be kidding me! "Blake Griffin that LED the most talented team in the WEST with... 3 perennial All Stars (Blake, CP3, DJ)..." Howabout 3 perennial MVP candidates in Durant, Harden, and WB... ?!?!?

    at this point I'm wondering if ur not just trolling... lol

    Season before last he played 75 games...
    "and had his best year in the NBA, when he put up 24.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 5.4 assists, shooting 46.2% from the field and 36.2% from beyond the arc in 75 games in his first full season in Detroit."

    LOL

    2 time All Star is fringe All Star. Okay. :rolleyes:

    And then completely dismissing Blake's Clippers team is hilarious.

    How can I take you seriously?

    Westbrook is toxic to NBA players - look at all of them that left.

    Harden, Durant, Ibaka, George - the dude is a ball hog who can't shoot.

    Because in the playoffs where it counts...he was so god awful that teams didn't even bother guarding him in the playoffs and he put up brick after brick...he can't shoot.

    he could be an all-star... as he was in 2016 and 2018... or he could not be an all-star - like in the other 8 years of his career (2-8 = 20%)... so could be an all-star but more likely that he's not... what do you call that?

    and u completely dismiss KD and Harden while chiding me... ...and didnt even mention Ibaka...lol

    and you question taking others seriously?

    lmao... dont be a clown, bro... lol

    Same as HARDEN....right???? If we have to rebuild it makes it easier getting them both off the books at the same time.

    It’s a 2 year deal. Not a bad contract compared to wall or WB

    Exactly it is a risk, but if it works out and he blends with Harden and Woods we are right back on top, if not, we have an expiring contract and Harden still wants to leave, so we get them both off the books in the same year....to help clear cap room for a rebuild.

    The big also rely's mostly on athleticism and can't shoot worth a dime. The only difference is, Blake Griffin beats equipment managers.

    This would be like trading Westbrook for an obviously broken down, obviously finished NY Knicks Amare Stoudemire. Blake is DONE

    Queue the Scanners head explosion.

    (Also, Blake Griffin sucks ass. We have several games of his to watch playing next to Christian Wood. Not ideal...)
