    can almost say for certainty we dont see 1 of PG/Kawhi on the Clippers next season. feel the same about Dame with the Blazers. unless he wants to continue playing Batman of Gotham.

    PG for Dame swap makes the most sense to me. Portland can let go of their superstar point guard without going through a total rebuild. the roster would still be highly competitive. in fact, I would argue they have a chance to be better simply because PG addresses one of their most glaring holes this past decade in a scoring/defending wing. PG remains an elite two way player in this league and would serve as a strong foundational piece to build on with Billups as head coach (dont forget he was an assistant with the Clippers last season)

    if Kawhi wants out then he'll get his way. it is an extremely less likely scenario in my opinion though considering his loyalty to the city of LA. Kawhi + Dame combo would be lethal. they would be my pick to win the West with those 2 at the helm and a half decent roster around them.

    That trade doesn't make any sense at all. George WANTS to be the #2 guy. Lillard wants to be the #1 guy. George does a lot for Leonard that doesn't pop out in the boxscore.

    PG and Leonard are going absolutely nowhere. And Dame is going nowhere near the clippers. He doesnít like many players on that team

    You donít go from being a #1 guy your whole career to a #2 option willingly unless you are winning championships. He has none & he hasnít even been close playing 2nd fiddle in OKC & LA.

    Lilliard is not a number 1 guy
    Getting older and cannot do much but take jump shots

    PG & Kawhi are not a compatible duo. Kawhi calls the shots there & if a trade for Dame Lillard was in place for PG+ assets heíd sign off on that w/o hesitation. You can bet that.

    Well he did just that! He orchestrated his way to LA to be 2nd fiddle to Leonard. Or did he think Leonard would be #2? No of course he bloody didn't.

    Like I said he took that chance to potentially win a championship. Players sacrifice their own desires for the ultimate goal if itís in reach. Ex: Durant, Kyrie, Wade, etc

    Plus, it was Kawhi that lured him out of OKC in the first place not vice versa.

    In 4 years so far playing 2nd fiddle to Russ & Kawhi, PG did not reach the conf finals once.

    In 2014 he led the Pacers there. It was his team.

    Kawhi goes out after g4 in the semis this year & PG puts the team on his back leading them to a conf finals.

    Paul George is a #1 option in this league. Batman not Robin. And my opinion is he replaces lil Damian with that role that in Portland next season.

    No. More to the game then just who has more talent on the floor. They need to make a change.

    I think you're wrong but what you seem to forget is Dame doesnt like the players on that team. Hes made that quite clear the last 3-4 years

    It would be stupid for the clippers to get rid of George and Beverly for Lilliard. I also think Leonard likes George and Lilliard goes nowhere near that team if George stayed too.
    I think Lilliard is going to golden state unless golden state can get Beal. If that happens then heís going to Dallas or Miami

    The guy is a loser. He will never be part of a championship team unless he is 35+ years old coming off the bench.

    Amazing how he gets his dick sucked at sbr. I guess most of those guys love it when he scratches there back with his nails.
