    Re: Paul to Clippers

    Now if anyone tries to argue that that isn't a fair deal for New Orleans than they are crazy. You have some good pieces to build with as well as a washed up quarterback and a high first round pick.

    Although that is a lot for someone who you only have guaranteed for 1 year

    Re: Paul to Clippers

    I think NO might send Okafor and some other small pieces to LAC, as well

    Re: Paul to Clippers

    On ESPN's Breaking News line the LA Times reports that Bledsoe is in the trade. The deal would have been completed earlier but NO/league asked for Bledsoe to be included.

    Gosh, suppose Mark Cuban and David Stern will throw a fit and stop the trade? Ridiculous.


    Go Cyclones!!

    Re: Paul to Clippers

    Think I read somewhere that Paul had to pick up his option for 12-13 so he will be there two seasons at least? Not sure if that was in the final trade though...might have been posturing?

    Re: Paul to Clippers

    I'm guessing this is a win now trade. I don't see CP3 resigning after 2 seasons with the Clips.

    Re: Paul to Clippers

    How is this trade any better than Laker's proposed trade? I think getting Kevin Martin, Scola, Odom, and Dragic is so much better than this crap. Kevin Martin is 15ppg, Odom is solid 10ppg, Scola is a hard working 10ppg+ + 10rpg.

    David Stern is a joke.

    Well, Odom wouldn't have been happy in New Orleans playing for a crappy team, so that wouldn't have gone over well. Gordon is a 20ppg player and Minny's pick will probably be high lottery.

    Re: Paul to Clippers

    There is talk that gordan might stay over the radio and would be a draft pick instead


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Gordon, Paul and Griffin would be a decent 3 headed monster. Just need a true big man and a defender and you have a good team

    Martin was actually right near 20 PPG last year, and has a career average of about 18 ppg. nd he is only 28. He is the player I wish the Bulls would have made a pitch for. He would complement Rose alot better than Hamilton.

    this. I've always been impressed with Martin. he would've been a much better option than Hamilton.
