The Clippers have completed a trade with the Portland Trailblazers, sending Marcus Camby to Portland in exchange for Steve Blake and Travis Outlaw.

I’ve always liked Marcus Camby, he’s been a classy and standup guy.  However, due to his large salary, he’s been dealt roughly 5,471 times.

At least he’s getting out of NBA hell.  The Los Angeles Clippers are an absolute joke.  What are they gaining in this deal?  They’re losing their best defensive player, and they’re receiving Steve Blake in return?

However, it doesn’t seem as though Camby is too happy about these developments.

After taking the call from Kaplan, Camby immediately walked out of the restaurant. A source close to Camby says that while he recognizes the benefits of playing for a better team, he is upset because his family is comfortably settled in Los Angeles. He had hoped to re-sign with the Clippers this summer.

That’s why I feel bad for him in this deal.  He just wants to play out his contract and spend time with this family, but he’s been traded yet again, and now he has to uproot everything and take it to Portland.

This isn’t putting Portland over the top, so Camby’s season has been extended by a month or so.

Probably not exactly what he wanted.

Again, what benefits are the for the Clips?  A backup for Eric Gordon?  They sure as hell weren’t looking for anything from Travis Outlaw, considering he has a broken foot.

That’s why the Clippers suck.  I’m not talking about the team.  I’m talking about the organization.  They’re not in it to win.  They’re in it for the money, like any other business.  I guess I can understand that (you could make that argument about the Tribe), but you are putting your fans through torture, and it’s never going to get better.
