The CP3 trade -- 1 Year Anniversary

This week marks the 1 year anniversary of the week-long clusterfrick that was the CP3 trade.

Timeline:
December 8: Hornets, Lakers, and Rockets agreed to a trade that would send CP3 to Los Angeles. David Stern (friend of the Hornets and HT) says bitch please (AKA "basketball reasons"). LINK

December 9: 3 teams resume talks. The three teams involved in the trade attempted to lobby the league to reverse its ruling as well as reconstruct the deal that would satisfy the league.

December 10: The Lakers pull out

December 12: Hornets and Clippers agree to trade. JK

December 14: It is done. Hornets send Paul and two future second round draft picks to the Clippers for Gordon, Kaman, Aminu, and the Minnesota Timberwolves' unprotected first round pick in the 2012 draft.

I can't find that thread. Was it whacked?

Anyway, enjoy.

Its funny that Blake Griffin hasn't gotten any better as player, playing with Paul. If anything he's regressed.

?

He had a higher PER, FG%, eFG% and TS% last year with Paul. His PER is down this year to rookie year level, due to lower rebounding and more TOs.

His scoring is down this year because he is playing 6 less minutes per game than his rookie year. PER 36, he's putting up about the same #s with less FGA and less FTA. I suspect, but have no proof, that he is settling for more jumpers to avoid going to the line.

Griffin is a beast. A bit of a dbag. But his offensive game is legit. Paul has made him more efficient on offense and made that whole team very good on offense. Their problem is always defense.

I was talking about his skillset, not his numbers. He's no better of a basketball player now than he was when he was drafted.
