Why is no one talking about the possibility of Blake Griffin in a Laker uniform?

I agree with those who say he won't leave the Clippers, I feel that way too. But to those who wouldn't want him on the Lakers, that is flat out crazy. He would instantly be better than any player we have, and would be a player that would raise the Laker's public profile in a positive way.

I feel like it's a combination of people not liking his attitude/hype and/or not wanting to put themselves out there for a move that won't happen...which is silly. There are things I don't like about Harden but I'd gladly deal for him.

I don't sense much urgency to seek Blake Griffin for the Lakers. He's expensive, a bit injury-prone, and hasn't been the lynch-pin to Clipper post-season success that would suggest he'd be any better for us. If he's the answer, we're asking the wrong question.

the way I see it, if he couldnt get it done with CP3 leading the way along with all the talent the Clippers had over the years he is clearly not going to do any better as the best player on a young up and coming team.

Does anyone remember that open letter Blake wrote about being sick of LA being a Lakers town? He seems like a prideful guy. I wouldn't expect him to switch teams on his own accord.

Probably because most Laker fans don't want Blake Griffin. Me included.

You are falling prey to the Clippers trying to kill our brand.

Do you know how stupid you look as a Laker fan, when you are clamoring for their guys??

Then, when we don't get him, they laugh at us for 10 years.

Don't EVER publicly wish for the players from your enemies!!

If the FO makes something like that happen quietly, so be it, but NEVER publicly ask for it.

Scroooo the Clippers. Wish they would move to Seattle!!

Yes, looking at total games played the last 4 seasons makes me want to pass.

Yeah, he is weak on defense, but he could not be much weaker than the current Laker PF's.

Yes he is injured often, so "might" the younger Lakers as they get older.

But, I am confused as to why the bulk of the posters think he would NOT be an upgrade over Randle???

I would take him in a second...


It's probably not a matter of if he is an upgrade over Randle, rather it's the other points in your post that most are concerned about.

Lots of people don't want him because he is a Clipper and because he has been injured way too much.

Because we don't want him in a Lakers uniform and he more than likely doesn't want to be in one. Too much pressure and he's not a go-to guy!
Blake will be better suited alongside Westbrook next season in OKC. That's the best move for him and his career, I wish him the best...
