The LeBron chase is still going, but the odds might have been better had the Clippers Blake Griffin played last year. At this point in time, he is still a relatively unknown commodity. Imagine last year if he posted up solid ROY numbers, showed potential and proved himself.
The record would have been better and made the Clippers more attractive.
I guess you could say inversely that they would not have attained AFA a solid SF....but regardless I think a good BG showing would have helped immensely in this FA pursuit.
