Hello dumpsville; population: Clippers.

Bet $1,000,000 that you will hear Brand talk about wanting to be traded soon.

It doesn't HAVE to be that way. It could be very understandable for the Clips to just be choosing to max out Brand and Miller.

..but you know that's not what's gonna happen.

Oh well - get ready. We better sign Wang to a short, tradeable contract, is all I have to say.. because those young guns are going to start leaving Clippsville one by one, and we better snag ourselves one. i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

Can you imagine how dominant the Clippers could be if Cuban was the owner?

Yup... it's too bad that the Mavs' decade of sucking didn't result in the piling on of draft picks that the Clippers' suckage has.

..but I'm glad our decade of suck is over.. especially since the Cowboys look to be in the middle of their own Decade of Suck, and the Rangers... well.. they just have a Franchise of Suck.

maybe we can get a pick from Golden State for Wang that will be tempting to Sterling when he realizes he's going to need some more young, underpaid talent.
