Chris Broussard... Howard to the Clippers for Blake and EBled?

This is what Broussard thinks about where Howard ends up if he decides to leave the Lakers at year end. Or gets traded first.

And this is what I emailed him:

"Howard to the Clippers? A huge no thanks! Chris, this will never happen if it involves Blake Griffin leaving, especially to the Lakers.

First of all, Howard is talented, but has maxed out. At 26, he is not going to get any better. I have never been impressed with his mental toughness. He smiles too much and dives for loose balls too little. Great player, just lacking the champion "it" factor that Kobe, MJ, Chauncey, Bird, etc... all had.

Blake Griffin is untouchable. Not just because he is personable, marketable, and fills Staples Center all by himself, but because his growth as a player has been exponential. Have you seen his step-back bank shot? His up and under move? His improved 15-17 jump shot? His 5 foot baby hook? This is all happening at an amazing speed.

I think the sky is the limit for Blake. And with CP3, and his best friend DeAndre Jordan (he is not being traded either), and a team filled with players who want to play with them, this team is going to challenge for championships for the next decade.

Book it."
