Clips nearing deal with Byron Mullens

Looks like a 2 year deal. Not a bad pickup.

Trade Proposal

Hey Brew Hoop, Greetings from Los Angeles. I actually was thinking over trade proposals given the recent Mike D'antoni hiring. My feeling is that Gasol will be gone at some point if things don't...

On Rajon Rondo

+

Not sure if this was ever posted on Clipsnation, but I read this a while back and found it to be rather enjoyable and shockingly well written for Ball Don't Lie. Thought it was apropos given how well Rondo's been playing lately. Also the girl who wrote this seems to be a babe.

Lamarcus Aldridge gets heart surgery + Greg Oden's done again?

4

http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/7336972/trail-blazers-greg-oden-suffers-setback-signs-reduced-deal-portland Two injury reports for the Blazers in addition to B-Roy's retirement. Tough week to be a Blazer fan. I thought the Clips were supposed to be the cursed franchise. Luckily, Lamarcus' heart surgery seems to be a rather minimal procedure as far as heart surgeries go. Will Greg Oden ever play again? It looks like he's following B-roy down the same path...

Bill Simmons on Clippers and CP3 trade

27

Long article but here's the gist of the Clippers part: Here's why the Clippers shouldn't give up Gordon and Minnesota's 2012 no. 1 pick for Chris Paul, especially if Paul won't promise to sign an extension. Look at that landscape. Our best four shooting guards are over 30 years old; only Wade still qualifies as being "unquestionably in his prime." I watched Gordon in person for three years — he's the no. 2 candidate to make a gigantic, Westbrook-like leap this season. (No. 1: John Wall; no. 3: James Harden.) Why trade a cheap player who has a chance to be THE BEST GUY at his position in three years AND a fantastic asset (Minnesota's pick in a strong 2012 draft) for a point guard with a sketchy knee who makes four times as much money? What am I missing? Even if Paul says, "I'll sign an extension," I wouldn't do that trade. I love Eric Gordon. Total gamer, total stud. Gordon for a promises-to-sign-an-extension Paul, straight up, is a fair deal considering New Orleans doesn't have a ton of options for him. Anything else is lunacy — especially when you factor in the part where the team with the tortured history is giving up the farm for a superstar with a possible knee problem. Sorry, I had to vent.

Dwight Howard or CP3? I thought it'd be fun to poll the Clipper nation to gauge how everyone feels about this. EJ's obviously a top SG in the league and is only getting better, but I get the...

Caron Butler wants to play for Clips or Bulls

6

According to Adrian Wojnakzisdirjeaiejqle ... I'm not terribly excited about Caron. He's 30, coming off knee surgery, and was never a great shooter (last season's 3 point numbers seem to be an anomaly). That being said, if he's healthy, it'd be a great signing and I would eat my words.

Short article on siblings and their performance in sports.

The Curse of the 3-Point Shootout

+

"Over the past 10 seasons, winning the 3-point shootout has been a harbinger of doom. During that span, the contest champion shot an average of 7.24 percentage points worse from behind the arc after the All-Star break than before it." Thought this was a fun read.

Interesting read about the Clippers' need to protect Blake.

Nice article detailing Blake's playmaking abilities. Good to read an article that praises the other nuances of his game and not just his dunking and athleticism.
