Wilbon: LeBron should join Clippers

Wilbon can't understand why LeBron James would go to the Knicks. Wilbon says LeBron should go to the Clippers. Once the Clips get Blake Griffin, they'll have more talent than the Knicks. "If you're going to be a star, why not go to L.A.?"

Wilbon upset with Magic's; says LeBron should join Clippers - Dan Patrick.com

I agree about the player talent, but the Clips have to get a new owner and GM first
so it won't happen

Clippers have a ridiculous amount of talent. If Lebron went there and actually got Baron not to suck for more than 50% of the games theyd be a dynasty. If Griffin does turn into a 20+10 guy, then that frontline of him and Kaman would be better than the Lakers one, and having Gordon by his side as well would be insane.

But then again Mike Dunleavy and Sterling are still in charge so theyd find a way to fuck i tup.

Even without Lebron James and Blake Griffin I'd say the Clippers have more talent than at least 50% of the teams who made the playoffs. With who they've got under contract I'm assuming Lebron would have to take a pretty hefty paycut, but the money he'll rake in through endorsements will more than make up for it.

Unless they find a way to flat out dump one of Baron or Randolph, the Clippers won't have 2010 capspace for Lebron, even if they dumped Kaman for expirings.

The team I'd look into if I was Lebron is Brooklyn, if the Nets move is done by then... Harris, Carter, Lopez, their next two 1sts, and Rod Thorn in charge? Now there's a core that could win right away. Plus he and Jay-Z are tight

Why wouldn't he want to go to LA?
The city is nice and Z-Bo is "better" than Bosh.

The only way Lebron plays for Los Angles is for the Lakers.

I mean, come on. The Clippers? Lebron is smarter than that.

It would one of the biggest stories in NBA history if Lebron ever decided to go the Clips.... lol... man it'd be so great. And I would applaud him for taking on that challenge.

Plus, the league gets to see Kobe vs. Bron 4 times a year and gets to watch them try to SHARE the Staples centre.

Griffin... Lebron... Baron... Camby.... that's an awesome core right there even without mnetioning kaman or Z-bo.

I'd do it if I were Bron... sign a 3-yr deal and he's still young enough to get paid somewhere else for his next contract.... and can you imagine what his legacy would be like if he became the guy that led the CLIPPERS to a title????

DO IT!!!
