    Blake Griffin would fit perfectly with D'Antoni's system. Harden and Blake Pick and roll all day.

    Can we cut this thing out from now?

    I've already seen people saying Batum can be our Marion and now with this Griffin stuff?

    We're not the Suns. Stop putting yourself in a position that you will 100% be disappointed with very soon, and then you have to lash out shortly after. Harden is not Nash. This is a different team and MORE importantly a TOTALLY different league.

    We have to build our own team based on the best deals available.

    Oh and how are we going to get Griffin? Is Morey going to trade Jones for him and then force LAC to pay Griffin's contract while he plays for us? This has about as solid a chance of happening as Trump building a wall that Mexico pays for.

    Convo be like

    Morey: Hey, Doc, we know Blake has had some issues the past year, and were wanting to make an offer.

    Doc: Go on...

    Morey: Well, we're willing to give you guys you've seen can produce first hand, guys like Corey Brewer, remember game 6?

    Doc: lol

    Morey: Well if that doesn't knock your socks off, how about the rest of our .500 brigade? Ariza, Bev, Beasley...*jewish chattering in background*...sorry, Les likes Beez, he wants to offer Dorsey but I'm not sure he's aware that donkey dick is in Europe. We would offer draft picks, but we traded them all for an alcoholic scrub. So, what do you think, Doc?..Doc? Les, I think he hung up.

    Les: It's all your fault Darrell! Me or Mike could've done this ourselves!! GTFO THE 2005 COACH OF THE YEAR WILL BRING THIS TEAM BACK TO GLORY!!!

    Morey: *analytics*

    Les: Okay, one more chance, but make sure you sign Lin again, that guy is MONEY

    *lottery bound season ensues*

    Definitely. Thank god they hired MDA, so now they know they should try and get a really really really f'ing good power forward on the team!!!

    Had they hired another coach this would have never occurred to anyone!!!

    I was thinking this but for us to get griffin. We can only trade the beard. Clippers would be stupid to do anything else.

    Hopefully D'antoni has learned that he has to bend his system to fit the players he has and not go around trying to find the perfect players for his system.

    So no, you should not try to "rebuild the Nash Sun's" but you should target players to fit the style of play you will be trying to play. That mean's Bigs who roll to the basket better and can play in the high post. It also means wings who can shoot better. I'm not saying the old fashioned PNR. You need to add new wrinkles but it can be done.

    With Harden's skill set, utilizing a heavy pick-and-roll offense will maximize his efficiency. Griffin would be a great PnR partner to pair with Harden, and honestly is much better/versatile than any post player the Sun's really had.

    Having said that, good PnR bigs are somewhat undervalued in NBA right now as stretch 4's have taken over. A big who is efficient/effective in a PnR offense recently only gets paid, if you they are elite on defense.

    How you plan on getting Griff? Minus Harden they have nothing worth trading for

    I don't think Doc will trade Griffin.

    Holy Crap. I just realized that Jeremy Lin might be back with the Rockets.

    I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you. This kind of magical thinking makes me sad. I'm not even frustrated; I'm just sad.
