I dont believe this for a second but it was brought up....

Saw it here http://hoopshype.com/rumors.htm

but the link goes here http://www.csnbayarea.com/article/ric-buchers-nba-chat-transcript-1218 12?awid=7723913953581110325-766

I've heard whispers that CP3 isn't as enamored with the Clippers -- or playing with Blake -- as advertised, but since it has come from execs on other teams, I'm a little wary about how much credence to give it. They're still very thin on the front line, particularly when it comes to scoring in half-court sets. If they get to the conference finals, it would be a significant accomplishment. CSNBayArea.com

Coming from other execs who hate the Clippers success AND want to have CP3 for themselves.

Baseless rumors. Basically an attempt by other teams to destroy team chemistry and try to get CP3 for themselves.

People do this all the time.

I agree this is baseless BS. If CP3 had a better option in the league I would be worried but none exist. The only teams I can see standing in the way of a Clippers championship this postseason are OKC and Memphis.

Maybe it's the Simmons rumor he started a while back. Not sure if there is any credence to this, or Simmons' rumor but how do these things start?

These rumors are BS. I highly doubt that CP is not ''enamored'' with the team we got now. He hasn't even played his best basketball and we are winning games. I can bet almost anything that CP will sign that 5 year extension this summer and stay in LA.

No other team can offer close to what we can... a young, athletic, improving front-court duo locked up for multiple years, CP3's own choice of role-players to compliment the 3 of them, his choice of ANY available coach if he has any problem with Vinny... Oh yeah, and the little matter of an extra year's security and about $25,000,000 guaranteed.

He said when he arrived he said that he wants to win, and doing it with a team for the very first time together is more meaningful.

The Clips and CP3 are like two virgins who have been dating for a while, and now they're about to make love. It's quite beautiful, really Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_41

My guess is that they consummate the relationship around the 4th of July wink

CP3's not going anywhere... the success of this team lately is hard evidence. There is no greener pasture out there besides being in LA on a legit contending and deep as hell team.

This is a much surer bet than stupid Ireland's bet on the Lakers going to the Finals.

I like the rumor of how Blake and DJ didn't like playing with CP. If they're going to make stuff up they should make it somewhat realistic

That BG and DJ don't like playing with CP3. That was way early in the season. I never believed that rumor but I was not happy how CP3 used Griffin in his first year. Now this one is the opposite so that's why I said maybe it was spinning Simmons' original rumor.

Exactly. CP pretty much hand picked a good portion of this roster. And now they are 2nd in the West. What's not to be enamored about?

Plus, I heard Bucher was the latest souce for this rumor, so that tells you all you need to know about it. Which is that its BS.

If not a true rumor good. If it's true though CP3 can walk his ass out the door. The team has completely listened to his suggestions and gone from lottery team to legit title contender in just one season of him being here with players HE hand picked. Nobody that doesn't want to be here should be here period. If he has a problem, leave and let Bledsoe develop and have tons of cap space. Nothing is stopping the Clippers from getting better either way.

That being said Bucher is a TERRIBLE analysts and has very off base rumors and predictions so it's probably a lie. Simmons did start a BS rumor about chemistry issues on this team when he predicted 45 wins.

Simmons predicted 45 wins and started that retarded ass rumor. He can go back to watching his mediocre Celtics that wouldn't even be a playoff team in the West.

CP3 helped us pick up Crawford, Barnes, and Green and they have played extremely well. There is literally nothing for him not to be satisfied with.

We are the 2nd best team in the West right now.

bill simmons just made his own prediction of the clippers season (and every other team) for fun with his buddy joe house on the BS report. They do it every year and it's only for entertainment, it's not reporting or journalism.

He said he thought the clippers were way too top heavy and had too many players. He didn't think VDN could handle all these players and their season would be mediocre overall, like a 5-7 seed in the west. thankfully he was wrong but he was only shooting the ****.

ironically enough he's a clippers season ticket holder so he's been watching them as well. wink

once again, this team shouldnt be held hostage by one player. cp3 is an elite player, but if he did want to leave, we could trade him for 2 good players and picks. and we would have money to resign ebled. however, he would be stupid to leave the clippers. best situation for him. and who knows, maybe his friend LBJ will be a clipper in 2014. that would basically mean the clips would help lebron get to 6 titles at the very least.

Chonky just stop dude. Simmons went on to argue to the death that AT BEST the Clippers win 45 games and elaborated on it in another segment so NO he wasn't just casually chatting. He truly believed it and he can eat sh** and die for all I care. Dude is disrespectful as*hole who does nothing but troll. He's worse than Skip Bayless... because with Bayless you can tell he's messing around sometimes. This guy actually believes what he says.

he's entitled to his opinion. I'm not sure why you take it so personally, it's just bill simmons. bill simmons might believe it but he always admits when he's wrong.

Also, how do you even know about what he said? Why are you listening to an hour long podcast of someone you dislike so much?

I actually DID like Simmons before this year. He respected and liked the Clippers last year and stuck to writing and doing podcasts in which he thrived at. Then he got the TV gig and became TERRIBLY unbearable and quite frankly a massive douchebag. Out of nowhere he turned on the Clippers after being a season ticket holder for 5 years or w/e. Like seriously man you wanna disrespect the Clippers like that and say they will decline despite adding a ton of talent and our guys developing with a training camp?

he did disrespect the clippers pretty bad at the beginning of the season, you are right about that. but ironically in his mock draft, of like 6 players for each him and jalen rose, IIRC he picked chris paul and blake griffin. lol

Ask Cliff Paul which team he should play for next season. Better yet ask Chris' wife when they're done counting all that now we play in a relevant market spokesman commercial money! He ain't leaving folks
