You will say this is preposterous, and you will say no one player can determine who gets traded to whom.
But I'll say it anyway: the common thread among the players involved in many of these major NBA trades is they've been dunked on by Blake Griffin.
You doubt me?
Just because my name is Silliman, you don't think there's a chance I might have an idea that's not silly?
Just for fun, check out these names:
- Timofey Mozgov
- Danilo Gallinari
- Jeff Green
- Nenad Krstic
- Corey Brewer
- Shelden Williams
Do you think the general managers sit in their offices and say, "There's a poster on this guy. Now if he were in a Nuggets uniform, it won't sell as well."?
That's where my theory is heading. If a guy gets posterized, he's on the trading block. And he doesn't have to be posterized just by Griffin; it's just that he does it so often.
If we extend the theory to traded guys who were posterized by others, add these names to the mix:
- Anthony Carter
- Jamario Moon
- Shane Battier
- Goran Dragic
- Hasheem Thabeet
A majority of these names have been involved in recent trade activity. All were posterized, at least six by Griffin.
Should we expect Kia to make a trade with Ford?
Let's have a look.
