    Apparently the Rivers/KG to Clippers for Jordan/2 first rounders trade is moving forward again after CP3's intervention.
    Sources: After Chris Paul's nudge, Clips seek ownership approval for K.G.-Rivers trade - Yahoo! Sports

    If this goes through and then CP3 signs somewhere else, he'll be a lock to win the dubiously coveted Carlos Boozer award.

    On the whole, this is really not that great of a deal for the Clippers. Granted Jordan is not that great of a player, KG is on his last legs. But KG probably fits better with Griffin than Jordan. It just seems like a decent young defensive big and two 1st rounders is a steep price to pay for an aging KG. But then again, if that's what's going to take to retain CP3, you pull that trigger.

    I agree - the big question is how much KG has left at this point.

    Yeah. I don't agree with that.
    Those other scrubs were just as bad and they were #1 picks.

    I'd love to see Darko & Giant Turd in a one-on-one battle royal.
    (I think Darko would kill him.)

    This article is a bit old now and I read it a while ago, but saw the picture in the Giannas Who? thread and thought I would dig it up. It was a huge dunk, but this guy summed up what I thought when I first saw it - "at least he was trying to defend, which is more than I could say for the rest of the team at the time."

    What an idiot. Seriously, if he were to do something like that again, he should be fired.

    Detroit Pistons' Joe Dumars Raises Questions and Pulses With Draft | Bleacher Report

    OK...I'm not the biggest fan of Joe's recent moves. However, suggesting that the only way Joe's move can be right is by having absolute success/failure of the players is question is just plain foolish and shows a serious lack of basketball knowledge. Besides, I've never been a fan of "the guy I liked wasn't picked so it was the wrong move." I'm increasingly intrigued by how people can instantly assign success to Burke while anyone else we select is a 'huge question mark' and/or somehow doesn't provide 'any reasonable explanations' as to how they could possibly help the Pistons.
