ESPN is reporting that Los Angeles Clippers guard Baron Davis and a draft pick have been traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Mo Williams and some other dude.
One day, you’re popping your head out of the sun roof of a car in the City of Angels dishing up an alley-oop to the NBA’s next great superstar, Blake Griffin. The next day, you’re packing your bags and heading to Cleveland, that gross city somewhere in between the two coasts. Even worse, the team you’re going to is contending for one of the worst records in the history of the NBA. Ain’t those the breaks.
on the other hand…
One day you realize the glory days of playing grabass with King Lebron James are over and you’re stuck on the that abysmal Cleveland team all by yourself. The next day, you wake up in Hollywood with the most exciting player the NBA has seen since that other dude you used to play with took his talents to South Beach. Damn. Life is good, right?
Here is how I think this went down in the heads of Clippers ownership. Thought process begins…now. Hmmm… Baron Davis is an All Star caliber player that has been an utter disappointment, what other point guard can we get for him? Deron Williams? Too late, the Brooklyn Nets got him. Rondo? No chance, the Celtics are too smart. Who’s that guy that sucks now but was an All Star when he was on Cavs with Lebron? Uh, Swim? Swammy? Slippy? Slappy? Swenson? Swanson? Let’s google it. Mo Williams! I was waaaay off.
