So negative...Post here if your excited about CP3!

I loved Eric Gordon. I thought he would have been a great person to build around. Then I thought he would complement BG nicely. So naturally, I am sad if he leaves the team. No matter who comes in. Even if it was King James for Gordon, straight up, I would be somewhat sad to see him leave.

However, lets be realistic. Chris Paul is a whole different level from him. Eric Gordon has great D and a beautiful shot. He also started really taking it to the hoop and creating plays for himself. To many post here are trying to find faults with Paul. Also to many "sports writers" are talking about how Clippers lost on the deal(we all know about the one donkey who thinks they won't even make the playoffs).

CP3 creates plays for everyone on the floor. He averages nearly 2 steals a game. This is a move to make the Clippers better, long term. If we can somehow, keep Paul happy and sign him to an extension next year. We can start to get those cheap role players that will take pay cuts to play for us. Teams like the Lakers and now the Heat stay relevant because older, role players, will take a little less money to play for them. We no longer have pay more than the next team to get a player to come here. As long as something ridiculous doesn't happen, I am already excited for the summer of 2012 and how the team can improve further. Of course we won't have Billups anymore and we might make a first round exit in the playoffs at the worst. YET, other than just trying to hit the jackpot in the draft, we will have options for the next couple years. I'm practically drooling at the chance someone might one day demand a trade to the Clippers.

Clippers were all ESPN could talk about tonight. D Sterling will love the added attention and open the purse strings a little more.

This trade is ushering a new era for us. Since I started religiously following the clippers in the early 2000's, the most famous clippers I can think of are Elton Brand, Darius Miles, Sam Cassel, etc. Never have we had a Chris Paul and a Blake Griffin. If you build it...they will come.
