The Los Angeles Clippers Made Some Choices That We Didn't Quite Agree With At the Time. Now, those choices made this team a better team.

    Remember The Carl Landry or Matt Barnes decision? Most of us disagreed with Clips resigning Barnes instead of signing Landry , but look how that has turned out.

    He was hurt all year and never got healthy and now Matt Barnes is playing some career basketball.

    Remember that DJ and Bledsoe for Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce talk? Wow, did we get the better end of that. Kevin and Paul are not playing bad necessarily , but they are old, slow and injury prone. Clips walk away from that one with smiles on faces.

Back to Carl Landry, If We would have signed him he would have taken the entire MLE. Now We Signed Barnes and Collison for what would have been ONE Carl Landry. If we would have traded DJ and Bled for KG and Pierce we would have taken on their contracts.

Those decisions the Clippers made were the right ones and we turned those into better ones by trading off the unproductive duo of Jamison and Mullens for a younger version of Paul Pierce almost in Danny Granger and a better version of Carl Landry in Glen "Big Baby" Davis.

I think we would agree that the Clippers came out with the last laugh in all these decisions! Very Happy

Wow, how bad that would have been if we traded DJ & Bled for KG and Pierce. Yikes!

Stern actually helped us out again by not allowing us to trade for KG and Sterling actually helped us out by not trading Collison for Shumpert.

Stern also helped us with the whole CP3 thing as well. We owe a lot to Mr.Stern lol. Sterling on the other hand nixed a Butler-Ariza trade , but he did dish out the cash for Doc

Well I did say again lol. Yep Sterling made a mistake with the Butler-Ariza nix but he also nixed the Collison Shumper trade which would not have been a good trade for us.

Barnes adds great chemistry to our ball club. lately the way he is firing up the 3 Ball...and running the floor.

If Sterlings biggest mistake during the CP/BG era is the nixing of the Butler/Ariza trade I will be the happiest fan on earth.

Could be sooooooo much worse.

How about the would-be Collison & Bullock trade for Iman Shumpert (bum knee) & Raymond Felon? Clippers definitely got lucky there.
