Re: RAPTORS ARE NBA CHAMPIONS *aka DRAKE WINS*
I'm an LA Native:
Went on the CP3 bandwagon when he arrived in LA. He was overrated, sad but true. I could see earlier on in his career when he could dunk and actually played D, if he had better than Blake and DJ, he would of had a shot. Blake is overrated and DJ is a 1-D player. Blake early on was not a good 3 point shooter so it didnt mesh well with DJ. Now CP and Blake are on the trading blocks.
I've seen betting odds and comparisons and yes Clippers slightly edge out the Lakers but its still too early too tell. I honestly think the Lakers will make one more trade. We may see a buy out for Kevin Love or a trade and they may have to give up Kuzma to get him but that may be ok if you want to win now and need a better 3 point stretch 4 than Kuz, who is Lebron's boy. I hope rather they dont trade Kuz, but keep Boogie if a trade goes down. Right now I see KCP on the block, with Kuzma being a natural 3 so he will be backing up Lebron and AD in his 6th man roll this year.
Right now rumors have Rockets trading for Love giving up two starter's Eric Gordon and PJ Tucker, and one bench player. It would make so much sense for them and Russel and Love are best friends from their UCLA days. EG is only 6"4 and would not be a good fit at small forward, when you have the taller Gerald Green. A starting lineup with Capela, Love, Green, Harden and Westbrook would definitely move Houston into the #1 slot in betting in my book above the Clippers and Lakers.
