Carmelo has made $135M in NBA salary alone. Does he want rings and to play for us for $10M per or does he want another mountain of money?
Look, I like Melo but he is not a good fit for the Clippers.
I can’t see a good dynamic between him and Blake, just like it happened with Amar’e, somebody is going to sacrifice, I rather have a real 3-and-D guy, Clippers really need that guy. Clippers are kind of one 3-and-D and a defensive big away from being rock solid.
Plus, the sacrifices that the Clippers need to do in order to be able to sign Melo even at $10M is not too little and that because $10M is quite unrealistically for Melo. He could realistically take up to $5M – probably less – of a salary cut but $12,5M?? To accept less than 50% of what he is earning now? That’s just too much, it’s not even a matter of him wanting more money or not, he deserves more than that.
So Blake led the game in points, rebounds and assists? Not bad, huh?
Nice to see Turkoglu getting a little more comfortable playing.
Ow, and nice to see Blake finally getting double digits in rebounding, he will soon slip from 10rpg avg. otherwise.
It’s looking more and more that the Clippers are just going to give up on true centers and go after power forwards who can play the five. Which of the following fours do you think fit best with this team, be it free agency or trade? Do it in draft form. You can add any player who you thought I missed.
Gustavo Ayon (trade)
Matt Bonner (trade)
they already got Turkoglu so more than needing a guy that can play 4 or 5, they just need a big that can defend – and rebound if possiblt – to take some of the load off Blake and DJ. So they should take the best big defender available.
Depending of the situation, if the guy is not a liability on D AND he is a good scorer around the basket, that can be it as well. But that only if it’s a really good deal and if they couldn’t find the big defender.
