Pacers are atop the entire league, mainly because of Hibbert.

Am I the only ken that thinks carmelo would destroy this team even if we keep blake and cp3? He doesn't shoot well from three and he seems to be like a supercharged jamal.

I'm also firmly of this viewpoint.

Carmelo is becoming a free agent this summer anyway, so there's absolutely no reason to trade for him at all.

Okay, now I'm getting pissed:

http://espn.go.com/new-york/nba/story/_ ... sal-mulled

I don't love that ANYONE from our organization "mulled" this trade. But I don't think anyone will now that Paul's down for a while. Melo isn't the facilitator Blake is, and we will need that now more than ever.

The mention I have seen on this is CP3 and Carmelo want to play together. That is why clip management considers the trade. And people on this board are critical of my posts about Chris Paul getting his buddies on the team and messing the clips up. More data to show I am right.

There is no reason to do anything CP3 wants anymore so he signs so I hope this does not happen.

Chris Broussard always puts out stuff and expects because he puts it out there it happens! Its always been Chris Paul's buddies though! Offseason - Dwight Season - Carmelo Next Offseason - Clippers look to trade entire team excpets Chris Paul for Lebron James! He is an idiot! Clippers would never do it!

I agree. If Cp3 ever tried to pull off something like that, I hope they trade him before getting his way. Even Kobe never got this treatment from the lakers. They got rid of Shaq for him but that was about it. Jerry Buss was also willing to trade him when he came unbearable. Hope the Clippers react in this manner if CP3 tried getting rid of BG for Melo.

"Internal discussions?"

That sounds like reporter-speak for "I called a guy in the Clippers organization and confirmed they heard the Knicks might be interested in trading for Blake and didn't take it seriously...therefore they 'discussed' it 'internally' and are 'leaning' against trading Blake."

This rumor is absurd. I don't know too much about this Chris Broussard, but from what I've seen so far, he strikes me as someone who sensationalizes every little thing, fake or not, just to get his name mentioned somewhere. He's like a craggy woebegone peacock strutting without any feathers. In other words, no substance. Sheesh.

What would be the point of Melo anyway? Sure he's an unstoppable offensive force. But wouldn't that kinda defeat the purpose of Doc's desire for a movement-style offense? Making the extra pass? I get that he will run the pick-n-roll with Paul effectively, but offense isn't that big a problem with our team anyway. At least it isn't with our starting backcourt leading the team. And Melo solves no problems on the defensive end. He's a good rebounder but not better than Blake. And Blake's a better ball handler and passer. Hell, he's the second best passer on the team behind Paul, which is more important now than ever.

So let's analyze this proposed trade:

Knicks upgrade:

-slightly on defense -rebounding -ball handling -passing -highlights -scoring efficiency (20+ points, on better than 50% shooting for career so far) -high ceiling

Clippers upgrade:

-scoring proficiency and volume (lower FG % but scores LOTS) -higher FT % -player in his prime

What am I missing?

Is it? He's by far the best Defensive player on by far the best Defensive team in the league.

Paul George is a great two-way player, but that doesn't mean he's a great defender. He's a good defender and would probably just be known as an average defender if he didn't have a great offensive game.

The Pacers without Hibbert are basically just the New York Knicks.

I must admit Melo in a Clips uniform could be intruiguing. But as Matt Moore (like the guy although he kinda hates us) pointed out, a deal without Chandler wont work.

My main concern is that they make a swoop (Melo Chandler for BG DJ) we dont have a PF at all.

With that being said, Im against giving up Blake.

Again, "by far"? He's a big body with a moderate offensive game. The Chicago Bulls have an elite defense and they are bottom feeders without Derrick Rose. I'd argue George has a similar impact on the Pacers.

But anyway, the point is that while DJ has improved and has value, losing him is worth it if it brings in Carmelo Anthony - arguably the best offensive player in the league when motivated.

Does anyone around the NBA think the Clippers have a Big 3 right now? Paul, Griffin, and Melo would be an incredible Big 3, moreover teams would not be able to double team Paul or Melo down the stretch.

DJ's great, but replaceable: -Athletic big who rebounds, gets lobs, and shoots below 50% from the free throw line.

Paul George is an elite wing defender. The Pacers without Hibbert are much better than the Knicks.

Lance Stephenson >>J.R. Smith. David West >>>>Bargnani. George Hill>>All of the Knicks PGs combined. PG=Melo(maybe better even).

Better bench as well.

Do you know how much pressure Hibbert takes off of his teammates to make sure they stay with their man? George doesn't have to chase his opponent into the paint because he knows Hibbert is there waiting for him.

I will admit though that they wouldn't be as bad as the Knicks, that was an exaggeration. But they definitely wouldn't be a top team in this league. They'd be fighting for a playoff spot if they were in the west.
