meaning he forced a trade to the clippers (has this ever happened?) after spurning the lakers in FA the year before. turning around and dealing him (for what would be a net loss, btw) is a bad look to anyone else thinking of following that path. people pay attention to this stuff. AD is a laker and not a C bag because we take care of our stars--i believe this. if the clippers want to try to build themselves long-term, they need to find a way to make things work with their two guys. if things don't work, they need to make sure they're on good terms with them when they leave. so, if they're actually shopping him, i feel like this is old clippers stuff. which is great for us. means i overestimated ballmer.
