Im really confused why some Clips fan would'nt do this trade.
Are the Clips contender this year? NO next year? Yes
If The Clips traded for Howard, they instantly will be a contender.
Howards defensive value can't be understated. With players like Turkoglu, Nelson, Anderson (I mean all of the Magic other than Howard) are bad or worst defensive players. But still the Magic are year in and year out a top defensive teams.
And loyalty doesnt count. Do you think if the Clippers is a bad team, Griffin will not ask to be traded?
PS:Im a Laker fan obviously, but living in LA, Clips is my 2nd fav team. And if the Lakers cant win the chip, I want the Clips to win it. And I watch Clipper games, and Griffin might average 20-10 in the season, but comes playoff time it will be different.
