Lakers have fully resisted Clippers overtures on a sign-and-trade for Dwight Howard. "They will never do it," source with knowledge tells Y!

Such BS. Why would they take away the face and star of the franchise that's so promising with potential and younger than Howard?

Griffin sells tickets and jerseys and apparently is playing better than Howard and didn't just have BACK SUGERY. lol, I swear I hate these dumb rumors. So illogical and crazy.

No one should be entertain these stories from thirsty reporters.

Why on earth would you give up Blake and Bledsoe for Dwight. NO way! Dwight isn't even that good right now. This is insane! Blake alone for Dwight isn't worth it. Dwight is half himself. This is crazy. Karnett for DeAndre and a first round is fine, no Bledsoe, forget Boston, we don't need KG that bad. I don't like what's happening right now.

IF Chris Paul is demanding he will only resign if we get Howard, then I say adios amigo, well keep Bledsoe and Blake and be young and fun. No way.

Fixed.

You guys are fooling yourselves if you think going from CP to Bledsoe they wouldn't take a big step back, at least in the short-term.

Just a bunch of bologna. Way too much for Howard and like others said, Blake is the face of the franchise. With Howard's attitude I don't really want him on the team. I used to be a huge Howard fan

Do you guys actually think the FO and Sterling have even thought about trading their franchise player that they just signed for 5 years for a 30 year old with a bad back and even worse attitude?!

Yeah right. The whole rumor and story is crap and not true. Everything is theoretical, the Clippers would never engage such a thing or entertain that thought. they ain't that stupid.

And whats the worse if its actually true? So be it, Blake will at least still be in LA.....with Kobe. Very Happy Just being optimistic. haha

I'm so tired of all these Rumors! If we lose Blake then "The Clippers" will be Chris Pual Team and I don't like the ideal.... I guess the media and writers think "The Clippers" are dumb enough to make a trade like that. It's Crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!

If the team really wants to trade Blake and Bledsoe for Howard, then I might just pick a new team to root for after 20+ years of being a clipper fan.

Why make the fakers this offer? They might as well trade Blake, DJ, Caron to other teams with cap space for young and cheap players and future draft picks. Clear cap space and just outright sign Dwight and CP and then build the team that way.

I just believe that the media can make all most anything "believable" A Lot of people DO NOT LIKE "The Clippers" They rather cause confusion and break us meaning "the players" apart. In the end, we can come nobodies all over again and life would be normal for the NBA...

I think the Rumor is just a faint to entertain CP3. FO wants to show CP that they're willing to do ANYTHING to keep him, though I doubt they'd actually pull the trigger on such a deal. I don't even think CP3 would want such a deal to go down. His future is much brighter with Griffin than it could possibly be with Dwight Howard, especially if the trade with the Celtics goes through.

Our stating line up next yr could possibly be: cp3, greene, pierce, garnett, and Howard. Maybe ray Allen want to make amends with the big 3 and join the clippers lol

I actually agree with you. cp3 plays hard every 4th game and most games he just decides to play the last 12 minutes.

He was great in NO, now hes a great leader but I think he barely makes the top 5 point guards :/ I'll take westbrook any day -- he eats up cp3 ALL DAY

The reason why this makes no sense to me is because all along CP3 has been wanting Blake to be a jump shooter for their pick and roll. How does that improve with Howard instead of Blake?

WOJ never bullshits. Here is a quote from his new article:

If there is anyone to believe, this is the guy. For those that read and live off of him know his rep. Those that think he writes rumors, don't know him.

Even if this trade never happens I don't think I'll ever forgive the FO for even considering this. Blake is the most loyal person on our team and we want to trade him for someone who's about to be on his 3rd team in 3 years. Loyalty matters. Not numbers.

If we lose CP3, it would be unfortunate but we can still keep our head up, with Griffin, Bledsoe, FAs and other ways to improve the team. If we lose Blake now, it'll feel so empty. People in LA should protest!!!!

This is ridiculous, I'm pissed. F*ck Howard coming here I don't want that f*ck head even touching a Clippers jersey let alone be in one. And give Blake and Bledsoe for him? You on crack? DUMB DUMB DUMB, don't fall for the fools gold. I know you have to make change to get better but that's ridiculous does anyone really think that will make us better? Dwight Howard stay the f*ck away from Clippers basketball pretty f*cking please with a big f*cking cherry on top

I know KG doesn't like to play center, so a trade like this would make him happy

KG and Dwight might be the best front court of all time tbh... the defense, rebounding, and shot blocking would be completely unreal

toss in the fact that BG seems to be hurt EVERY YEAR come playoff time and I can't lie, I'm interested to know the details

Cp3/ wayns

Green/ Crawford

Pierce/ Barnes

Garnett/ Odom

Howard/ Hollins

sounds amazing to me...

if Blake would show up in the playoffs I wouldnt even consider something like this tbh but dwight showed up more than blake did imo

And this is why no one really gets along with Chris Paul. Damn he's really pissing me off right now! Blake is the face of the franchise! f*ck not you! After everything he's done for our franchise this is how they'll treat him. He became robin and let CP become Batman and I never heard him complain...smh

A team that has Garnett & Pierce in the starting lineup next season are not Championship contenders.

They are both almost 40.

36 and 37, which is pretty old, but it's not 40.

Here's the thing: a team led by Pierce and Garnett, just a few months ago, made the playoffs. Sure, it was in the East and they were about a .500 team. But imagine that instead of being the best players on a team decimated by injuries(Rondo played only 38 games) and lacking much of a supporting cast(washed up Jason Terry? Jeff Green?) they would be playing alongside Paul and Griffin. As 3rd and 4th options, on a team with younger stars and at the very least Jamal Crawford on the bench, Pierce and Garnett can take a much lighter load, at least until the playoffs. Even at this age, Garnett and Pierce are probably a huge upgrade over Jordan and Butler.

Now, I'm not sure I'd give up what Boston is asking(Jordan, Bledsoe and 2 picks) just for Garnett and Doc. But if those 2 and Pierce find their way here somehow, a lineup of KG-Griffin-Pierce-(Afflalo? Willie?)-Paul with Crawford on the bench would be a damn scary team, even if KG and Pierce aren't the same players they were 5 years ago.

Btw this is a dumb rumor that was already disproved. No way would we trade BG and Bledsoe for a broken down Dwight Howard. It would be an extremely stupid move.

It seems like they are throwing BG's name everywhere. They even said we would trade BG for KG and Pierce. Vomit

I would throw this in the same garbage bin as CP3 wants a black coach.
