Why would it make the Clippers a bad team? It would make them a better team for the short term. Garnett and Pierce are better than Deandre Jordan and Bledsoe.
Howard didn't do anything for the Lakers this past season. Kobe had to carry the team. I don't know if it would be a good fit for the Clippers cause Howard has become such a drama queen, people are getting tired of him.
Garnett is still one of the best big men in the league. Duncan is older too. How come you're not saying he should retire also?
