Cornerstones - Blake Griffin and Eric Gordon

I'm beside myself with how lucky we got tonight. 

I'm not thrilled because we won the lottery.  We've won the lottery before.

I'm thrilled because we finally won THE lottery.  We finally won a lottery where there's a consensus #1 who is virtually a sure thing.  This isn't a year of Olowakandi or other potential busts at #1.  This is a year where the guy at the top is someone who THIRTY teams would want.  Look back at the draft history - guys like that are rare.  

What's even better is how well he compliments Eric Gordon.  The two can form a lethal inside-outside game for the next decade.  They're cut from the same mold - humble, strong, hard working and ultra talented.  Blake inside will open up EJ's outside game, and EJ's three point shooting will give Griffin more space to dominate inside.  It's a combo that every team desires.  Now the team just needs to fill in the spots around those two cornerstones.

And even with Baron, I think he'll be a perfect compliment.  A big who can run and gun with him.  I really believe that the trio of Baron, EJ and Griffin will flourish next season.

Priority #1 right now should be to TRADE Z-BO.  The last thing we need is him hampering Griffin's development. 

Here's a great highlight reel of Griffin: Blake Griffin - The Next Big Thing
