Now seems as good a time as any to say…THIS COULD HAVE HAPPENED.
I submit that Blake Griffin is just as good, if not better already, than Bosh. Eric Gordon might not be as good as Wade, but he’s getting better every season, and 8th in the league in scoring (Wade is 5th). Plus, in the cases of both Griffin and Gordon, their skill sets fit LeBron better.
Griffin crashes the glass, and runs the floor, while Gordon is a dead-eye shooter, who can get his own shot. LeBron would still be able to dominate the ball, putting up 30-12-8’s every night, and the other two would fill in the gaps perfectly.
DeAndre Jordan is a talented, young center who can protect the basket (the opposite of Zydrunas), and the Clip Show would still have Chris Kaman to move in a trade.
If it wasn’t for that whole Racist Donald Sterling thing…
Hey, I suppose we all benefit because now we get to appreciate a blossoming Blake Griffin without the LBJ sideshow.
