All these trade rumors brought back a good memory how he just fell into our laps for a Brian Cookie crumbs.

^I'm sorry, but do you have to take every single opportunity just to advertise your podcast? I mean you already have a thread that you frequently bump, and a bunch of other methods to advertise. I don't mean to be rude but just having a former Clipper in one of your Clippers podcasts shouldn't be reason enough for you to bring it up.

we had a gm last year. we dont have one this year. vdn is running the show and what he'll do is give away our young guys like ebled and jordan for a rental in KG. kinda like he gave away Mo for a fat slob who averages 3 points a game!

I take it your not a VDN fan. Wink

As someone said in a another post Mo was not happy playing back up to CP and was apparently causing trouble in the locker room.

That was a great trade. I'd love for something like that to happen again.

Really Greenmonk? You and I were 2 of the older members here. Surprised to hear aggression from you, kind of a let down. Oh well.

My point is that this isn't his site and he's using it to advertise his work all over the place even though David (generously) allowed him to make a whole thread about it. I take it you haven't run a website or forum before, let alone the biggest Clippers community online. No forums would let you advertise like that.

Heck, I had a site before I moved off to college. The only place I was allowed to advertise was in the off topic section, and I was a moderator here at the time.

Call me a douche if you want but I just don't like when every little thing brings up his podcast. "Omg you have a dog? So do I, listen about him here! (Insert podcast link here)".

Just stick to the thread, he's lucky to even be allowed to advertise on a community with thousands of Clippers fans. Don't push it.

That was a great trade. But we were lucky to get a quality role player / player from a team who just wanted to dump somebody and clear up cap space. Teams like Atlanta and Utah are trying to move good players because they don't want to pay them, but they would like to try to get something for them outside of the big cap space they will leave behind. For a contending team like us, moving Bledsoe for Millsap, Smith etc isn't a bad thing.

Odom likely won't be re signed, unless it's for cheap. His big salary comes off the books as does a few other players. Giving us some room to sign CP3 and fill in the veterans on the team. What's the price of a championship? For teams in various sports like the Patriots, Yankees, Red Wings, Lakers, Celtics, Steelers etc. it's not a bad idea to trade away hot young talent to bring in a veteran, if it means winning then so be it. Afterall, those ans are used to being, and staying on top.

For a team like us, or even Indiana and Brooklyn ( and I believe were better than both ), adding Smith, Garnett, Pierce or Millsap is a gamble worth taking. We've never won anything, the age and health of some of the better vets on our team could mean retirement at the end of the year and we'll have to hope we can replace those players with solid guys to continue to dominate, which I think is a hard thing to do, even with veteran players taking less money to play for great teams.

I've been all about Josh Smith since he was at Oak Hill Academy. He came into the NBA as a SF/SG who got stuck at SF then moved to PF because Atlanta is horrible. Garnett brings in defense that you can only hope to dream of. Pierce is a fantastic player to have and can knock em down come crunch time. Millsap adds massive depth to your front court and can play the 3 if needed.

The price is plain and simple, Bledsoe + salary fillers. However, there's been rumors that Jordan has to go with Bledsoe in some of these deals. I wouldn't do that at all, no matter how much DJ is overpaid, he's healthy, young and still has a chance to finally be a better defensive center.

Bledsoe can and will start full time in the NBA. For him to do so here, he'll have to play SG where his height becomes an issue. And I don't think he'd like to be the 6th man here getting 25-32 MPG, where he could be the starter somewhere else and carve out a bigger name for hisself.

I'd love to keep Bledsoe, however if you can land one of these guys and it WORKS and we win something this year, it will be well worth it. Even if we traded Bledsoe for Kwame Brown and for some strange reason we won the title, I'd do it. You may hate Josh Smith, you may not like the idea of putting Millsap at the 3 if need be, you may not like the age and health of Pierce and Garnett but there's a reason why these guys are worth the risks of trading for.

We've never won a damn thing, we MAY win the Division this year. That's 1 division title in damn near a half century, that sucks. If there are teams out there that are willing to dump certain players like Nick Young, who are your basic mid level players for salary cutting, then great. The first person who comes to mind, is J.J. Reddick. Now I'm not saying we move Bledsoe for Reddick, but I do believe Orlando has a vast amount of draft picks. We could send them Bledsoe and say Green and Turiaf for Reddick and a 1st rounder, which to me I think is more than fair. Nelson is not a good PG, and the Magic want to get rid of Reddick as he will probably ask for a big money extension this summer.

Reddick can be started at the 2 over Chauncey, because let's face it Chauncey isn't much of a starter if he's gonna get 20-25 MPG. Chauncey can lead our 2nd unit as our PG with Crawford coming in to help at the 2. Reddick is a lights out, balls in your face shooter. Given the awesomeness of our team, his percentages will likely go up, and his numbers slightly down as he won't be looked upon to lead an offense, which he clearly can't do. Reddick allows for massive floor spacing and DJ and Blake the ability to camp in and around the paint for easy bunny layups and dunks.

But let's not forget folks, we dominated the first half of the season without having Hill or Billups for more than what, 3 games total? If those 2 can remain healthy in the playoffs and give us solid contributions, I can completely see why we pass on all trades and ride it out. If we can win 17 games in a row without these guys, whose to say we can't take it to the house and run over the West and win the Finals? And during the summer if we do lose Chauncey and Hill to retirement, we'll have multiple contracts coming off the books and we'll have a better idea of who we can trade Bledsoe for because we'll know exactly whose on our team for next year and how much we can invest salary wise in a trade.

I just really hope the people running this show make the right move. I know with CP3 and Blake here we've got a big chance to win the title each year, but I really wanna see it now, and this team may be the best team we put together.

Totally agree. I haven't heard a sniff of any trade that will undoubtedly make us better... the closest thing was the Garnett deal, but even then they were asking for too much and the issue of messing with locker room chemistry concerned me.

At this point, unless a Swaggy-P type deal (ie: only cutting dead weight) falls in our laps, let's roll with the current crew.

Was just excited about people still calling him Swaggy P out here in Clipperland, I guess that name has taken on a life of its own in Philly? Def appreciate the *** thread and when a new one drops we do tend to talk about it a bit. We're excited is all because literally nobody was listening at first and now it's got a pretty decent following. But more importantly... Swaggy P will always live on in Clipper lore for the Miracle in Memphis! But when we talk of that game will we remember him as Nick Young. Or Swaggy P??

***... this is me passing along a message from site Admin David. Please tone down the advertising of the podcast on the forum and practically spamming it. Keep it in the "Everything Else" section of the forum please. Thank you for your understanding. For those interested you can PM them the info as well.

*** after multiple warnings I've banned you. I may unban you in a couple days but for now you need a break. I've talked to you about trolling a couple times and now I talk to you about spamming and pass along a message from the site admin and you try clowning on mods. If you can't follow the board rules, don't post here.

^ Don't mean to tell you your business, but you shouldn't just go around banning people for talking back to you. I looked through his post history out of curiosity, his whole first page, only this post was about his podcast from outside of his thread.

With that said, dude seems to be getting a lot of traffic from this website and doesn't seem to appreciate it.

Just my $0.02

Hey everybody I'm Chris Wylde host of *** and long time Clipper fan. Thats fun to say even though technically I didn't say anything I'm really just typing on my phone. I personally am super appreciative of Clippers Top Buzz. It is above and beyond the best Clippers website. Besides maybe a 2007 Clippers Spirit Girl Taylor fan page that only I can see when I close my eyes and listen to my heart. Clipper fans are the coolest people in the world and we deserve our own top shelf message board! And we've got one here. The reason Jaglin and I started *** was because we felt Clipper Nation deserved their own big time podcast. We also deserve a Clippers sports bar but you can't win em all (like last night, woof). We have received nearly ten percent of all our listens through people clicking on links right here on top buzz. Thanks CTB! 50 percent of our listeners are confused buzz cut enthusiasts. I've had a terrific run with the Clips, I met my wife at a Clippers game! She wisely objected to my first idea for our son's name: Vinny Del Cherokee Parks. To all who may have been offended by ***'s comments I personally apologize and assure you wrists have been slapped, time outs have been issued, and there's been some technical free throws rewarded as well. To all who have tolerated our Clipper love spewing podcast thank you thank you thank you. To all the Clippers Top Buzzers keep buzzing I'll be reading and commenting as well. We, Clipper Nation, Rise Up and Represent or whatever our slogan is next season. Lob City Champions? Champ City? A Tribe Called Champs? If I may quote Clipper Darrell, "lets go Clippers. Lets go." Lets go everyone
