The nuggets are better than the clippers at 4 out of 5 positions. Melo over Brand, Camby over Kaman, AI over anybody youve got, KMart over Thomas. Were just all around better.

The Nuggets are nor better than the Clippers for the following reasons: A.I and Martin are team killers for one. A.I. thought that it wan not important to skip practice a couple of years ago and actually said, "How can me practicing make my team mates better?" What kind of idiotic thinking is that? He left Philadelphia in shambles and they actually did better when he left. Kevin Martin, in a playoff game against the Clippers mind you, sat out during the last part of a game because he was mad at his coach. Coach Karl had to kick him out the rest of the post season. Melo is a great player with great offensive talent, but Brand is an all around better player on defense, getting his team involved, scoring, and rebounding. You always hear about how great of a team player Brand is, not Melo. Kaman is third in the league with double-doubles this year and has been compared to the "white" version of Tim Duncan just a couple of days ago on nba.com. Yes, Camby is reigning Defensive Player of the Year, but once again, one dimesnional unlike Kaman. Mobley could beat out your Shooting Guards any day. In fact your SG is changing all of the time, not due to injuries, but because of inconsistent play. Yes, the Nuggets have a better record, but the Clippers are using 2nd and 3rd stingers as starters because they are so injury ridden. Know that if the Clippers had most of their players healthy on their current roster, we would crush the Nuggets.

Marcus Camby is the reigning defensive player of the year, and has led the NBA in blocked shots and defensive rebounds the last two seasons in a row. You think the clippers would turn down a trade offer of kaman for camby?

I dont have to argue for Carmello Anthony. Would the clippers turn down a trade offer of Brand for Anthony? Be honest.

Allen Iverson is a shoe in for the hall of fame, and Sam Cassell is...not even close. Would the Clipps make a trade there?

Kenyon Martin (not kevin martin...he plays for the kings) dominates Tim Thomas in the paint. Does anybody reading this actually know who Tim Thomas is? Do you think the Clipps would like that trade?

So in the end, the only way the Clippers would be a better and more talented team would be if they traded Brand for Mello, Sam for AI, Thomas for Martin, and Kaman for Camby. Then they could call themselves the LA Nuggets.

Be honest now, would the clippers turn down any of those trades, really, if they were offered by the nuggs?
