Damn, now the CTB banner is useless since we don't have Caron and Bled anymore. Sucks, because I like it a lot.

i was kinda sad about letting go bledsoe and caron but if u think about it.. Bledsoe and Caron always wants to dribble the ball, sometimes there so open on the three point line but they still drive it iinside n it only cloggs up the paint. Having reddick and dudley will create more space and they're going to be so open when cp3 is commanding docs system. we never had players who is deadly on shooting 3's and can move without the ball.

we need role players like this who understand their role and not trying to do too much ending up with forced shot like chauncey

Reddick wasn't the first option in Orlando and certainly not with the buck. When did reddick have to carry a team?

Anyway I think the real price of the trade is Dudley

It was awesome having Butler on the team, but it's ALWAYS cool for a homer like me to have a SoCal guy like Dudley on the roster. Blake better nut up pretty quick here or he's gonna get his ass whooped at practice when the cameras aren't rolling.

Wonder if these guys are excited or not. Were not a team like the Lakers, Celtics, Knicks or 76ers who have a history that is prestigious and goes back farther than the Bulls who really made their mark in the late 80's and 90's. What I am getting at is, those teams I listed have fans across the United States, and even if they are stinky these teams have kids growing up dying to play for them, just to feel what it's like to put on the green and white, purple and gold etc etc. and walk out onto the home court and represent the team you wanted to play for, for so long.

Clippers have pretty much been crap, forever. I really wonder if when Blake got drafted if he really thought this team was going places, or if he'd just be the centerpiece the team would build around while they struggled and he would just play here until he could leave. How about CP3, wonder if when he was drafted and during his tenure in New Orleans that he'd actually WANT to get traded to the Clippers and then sign a 5 year 100 million dollar contract. How about Dudley and Redick, they've been around only a short period of time, but long enough to see how bad this team can be. Wonder if they thought, during the prime of their careers they'd be traded to the Clippers who were a good/great team who are tied for 3rd to win the entire thing next year?

Pretty crazy when you think about it. For decades people hated it here, dreaded the owner and the poor records, waiting for their chance to leave. Now guys take pay cuts to come here and want to be a part of the show, and hopefully something special. I'm proud to say I am a Clipper fan, always have been. But I am most excited for the time that is now, I really think this time right now will be the golden age of being a Clipper fan, at least for the next 10 years.

I know for sure Jared Dudley is excited. He's tweeted and done so much Clippers related stuff within the 24 hours he's been traded.

They both seem like they love it. Redick chose to come here since it was a sign and trade, so he obviously would have to be excited.

The substitute talking heads on First Take were talking about our moves. One guy thinks we aren't going to be any better than last year and cited the fact we don't have a 3rd member of a Big 3...

...but I think that's only important if you don't have good enough role players around you. If you have a Big 2, but consistent role players around them, do you really need a Big 3? Besides, does Chris Bosh REALLY qualify as a member of his team's Big 3? Dude averaged 12.1 pts and 7.3 rebounds. Jamal Crawford averaged better than that for us. And it's entirely possible Redick will also.

What is so great about Blake and CP3 is that they both relish the opportunity to start something great with this franchise, despite all of its poor history. They are pioneers, savvy investors, and willing leaders.

I like Tim Legler's take on this trade. He was on Coach and Company's podcast and called this a "landslide" victory for the Clippers. He's been kind of a fan of the team and even thought we'd make the WCF this year before we went out in the first round. But he cited the fact that 4 out of the NBA's 6 best 3 point shooting teams made it past the first round this year. And 2 of those made the Finals. He also says that Doc understands how a team fits together like a puzzle and need "complimentary" players.....

"Big three" has become the new overrated thing in the NBA. What is important is having player that fit. For example, Dorell Wright is a better player for Memphis because of his shooting, high 3PT volume and decent defense than having a "big three" that includes Rudy Gay.

If you have two quality players, unless the third guy is a good fit or just really high impact, it is better to surround your team with quality guys that fit around each other and compliment each other.

Voyeur, that's the good thing about Redick, he's a smart, funds mantel defender, so he won't make big plays on defense, he won't shut anyone down, but he'll stay in front of his man, force him the right way, he'll make the right rotations, he fights around screens, he stays low, etc. What he will struggle with is effectively contesting shots, and he won't have the athletic ability to do things like double down and then effectively get back out to the shooter on a consistent basis.

Offensively he will give this team a lot of movement. Doc will use him in a lot of down screens and he will draw attention and get the screening bigs baskets on dump downs, and keep some defensive focus so when Paul is going to work, the defenses eyes aren't all on him.

Sounds perfectly reasonable. I can't wait to see how these guys come together.

I loved watching EB, but I always wondered how much of his success came from CP3 wearing out the defense prior to EB coming into the game. And Caron disappeared so badly in the playoffs, it was time to upgrade his position. I guess I'll know how much CP3 had to do with EB's success about 50 games into next season. I'm down with the trade. Is it November yet??

Went to the sun's forum and heard a lot of interesting things... both bad and good about Bledsoe. Appears to be 50/50 about the trade.. some like it. some don't.

That's because Bledsoe is overrated to an extent. His overall game is far from even being solid. When he becomes a main option for scoring and is seeing more minutes, his efficiency will decrease and his deficiencies will show even more. Bledsoe is a good player for being a back up to a point guard like CP, but he has a lot of work to do. Just my opinion on how I feel about Bledsoe.

After all, if he was so great, trust me the Clips would have tried to keep him as backup point or play at 2 some what.

We just got a lot better with Redick and Dudley. Better shooters and floor spacing. With Doc system and setting screens for players, Dudley and Redick better suit the roster with their ability to make shots from distance. Green, Butler, Barnes, and Bledsoe are all far too inconsistent from the 3 and mid range. Especially Barnes and Bledsoe. And Butler was getting old, best time to shop him. He wasn't the same player. Having 0 points and 5 points in 2 games against he Grizzly in the playoffs when it matters most was unacceptable and pathetic.

We don't need no big three. Chicago bulls won 6 titles with having just 2 superstars. The rest are just role players that really fit in the team. We had bledsoe caron jamal chauncey and odom who only produce if they're dribbling the ball and thats One of the reason why we had so many iso's last year because evryone wants the ball.second is vinny's lacking of a system

Bulls also had the best player of all time.. that kinda helped Wink plus its a different game.... C'mon bro.. that was the 90's.

"Big 3" is obviously working for the "HEAT", 1 finals appearance and 2 championships in last 3 years??? Its really a big 2 if you ask me though... which is what Jordan and the bulls had. If only DJ can turn into a taller more athletic Dennis Rodman Smile

What i was saying was it doesn't matter if you have 3or 5superstars on your team. If ur players doesn't know their role or they don't fit your not going to win any championship. Just look at the lakers when they had shaq kobe mailman and gp. Looks good on paper but didn't win a championship

What's truly working for the Heat is having Lebron James, the league's best player.

Cheaper. We can save ebled n butler for a legit sf. I just don't think that Dudley and reddick are the two missing pieces for us to win a title.

I hate the lakers but they actually played really well that year and if Malone didn't get injured they most likely woulda won the title that year. Malone was helping keep Payton under control not just contributing on the court

but clearly they didn't cuz having too many superstars in one team are overrated. GP was always trying to do too much.. kobe and shaq already have beef at that time. theres no way they couldve beat the piston team who r well balanced team at that time. I think Clippers can beat the heat without having a "big three" or even win a championship just having the right players who know their role that fits well in the team, willing to play as a team and not trying to do too much
