KG to Clippers would have been scary
"The Clippers coaching staff wanted to do it, and a lot of executives and coaches among the elite in the Western Conference, and some of the elite in the East, they were terrified of KG going to the Clippers. They thought that made the Clippers the team to beat out there. But ownership was reluctant to this deal, and … they never agreed in principle to that package. I think that's one [Boston] may have pulled the trigger on.

Kevin Garnett, the feeling was, out there and around the league, he would have spread the floor, he would have cleared out the lane for Griffin, he kind of would have played that stretch-4 power forward position. And a guy who's won, who steps in. Listen, nobody in San Antonio, nobody in Miami, nobody in Oklahoma City wanted to see that deal happen." WEEI.com

I don't think so. Even if they cleared the lane for Griffin, Griffin doesn't have the post moves to take advantage of it. And the chemistry would have been disrupted as well.

Garnett isn't 2003 , he's a good player but he doesn't put them over the top.

The one thing that would've been a benefit, him teaching Griffin a post game and a nasty, crappy attitude.

I bet Manu wouldn't be scared.

if they would have given up Jordan in that trade, i would have been happy. SA cannot match that athelicism. It would have taken away their main advantage over SA

Why thank you my friend. We all pretty much can't stand the site of KG... Especially Duncan, but for him to learn from Garnett would be almost like learning from Duncan. Just not all the cursing,name calling!
