  1. John Salley is fucking idiot, apparently the NBA though that seeing chris paul in a clippers jersey with blake griffin was more enticing than seeing him with Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol almost immediately after they won 2 rings

  2. did that guy just say that David Stern blocked a move for CP to the lakers because it was better for the league if Blake Griffin had a point guard of CPs caliber? I swear that guy in glasses said that….isn't that a form of rigging or am I over thinking this?

  3. Im tired of people trying to make excuses for doc rivers he only has one championship under his belt that was won by bostons big 3 plus the help of rondo let this sink in doc rivers has another big 3 plus he had jj reddick who can shoot well n couldt even make the western conference finals ? You have to show and prove !!! And the numbers dont lie

  4. can we get rid of steven a and keep john sally on the show, the "some of them were oil, and some of them were water, they didn't want to gel" analogy was dope. i could listen to john talk basketball all day.

  5. $45M / 5th year was the issue. Because Blake resigned without hesitation. Loyalty. The narrative is hilarious.

    Nepotism became the scapegoat but people should check out Chris Paul Jr. He hangs around games. Doc is a loving father. CP is the same. Fatherhood is big on them both.
