Denver is foolish for this move they don't know what they are giving up in Camby..he brings it on & off the court every day..he's a stand up guy...Watch what kind of season Camby has this year..the league's in TROUBLE...(BSQ The Heart Beat)

Denvers loss is the Clippers gain. This is non sense let Cambi go, they aren't going to be a good defender team any more.

I can't believe that move, I won't even asks for an explanation. How in the NBA HELL can you trade the best defense player on the team and have the heart to say that your team needs to be better on defense. DENVER THANKS FOR THE WORST TRADE SO FAR. I DOUBT IF IT WILL GET ANY WORST.

DENVER made a dumb move, the problem was they don't play defence, but how is getting rid of ur best defender and the best shot blocker in the league right now, gonna solve the problem. i expect them to start having a rebuilding season and Iverson is probaly gonna want out, he can't handle the competetion in the west

me neither, i don't understand the trade...

Also I feel that Eric Gordon will be able to bring alot to the team. I am an athlete at Indiana University and have been able to see Eric perform at the basketball games. The Clippers are lucky to have him!

Perhaps it's the shock of going from a team that made the playoffs to a team that didn't...welcome to L.A., Marcus...

i am greatly disappointed about Camby going somewhere instead of New York. a reunion would have matter more for him with the MSG fans and team than being tossed around like an old of something grand. Nuggets will grind their teeth comes season games. Clippers are instantly back as contender. i understand why Knicks cant have Camby at this point. i would give up Zbo for Camby no matter what if i have my way.the former plays solely for himself while the latter is a roleplayer. he can be a superstar instead he supports his team mates. i wouldnt be suprise if Camby does settle back in New York at the end.He loves the place.

ARRRRGGGHHH!!! Damn What in the hell are the Nuggets thinking, trading the two time defensive player of the year?! Man we could have emptied our bench for a future draft pick!!! This F'n Sucks!!! As you can see I'm a Nuggets fan that's pretty pissed about this trade!

Pretty classless by the Nuggets. If Denver is giving up for the free agent class year after next Camby is probably in a better place.

Nice pickup for the Clips, the luxury tax is a mutha', it makes you do these types of moves. Saves the Nuggets major $$$

Not sure how this will all pan out, but the clippers have made some franchise moves that only winners normally make. I commend the clippers for really getting key pieces to the puzzle.

Getting rid of Maspaghetti and Elton Band-aid is getting rid of baggage of players who are losers and mediocre stars. Only mistake was not trading those guys and letting them go for nothing. Clippers need a really good shooter then they will be a true contendor. A ben gordo, peja or ray allen type of pure shooter.

congrats clippers Not sure if you'll be an instant winner, but the moves are positive and show that you are trying to really win.

Well, Camby will be given a true Clippers welcome as only TRUE Clippers fans now how to give one! WELCOME CAMBY! GO CLIPPERS! And yes, unlike some L.A. teams, we don't take any players for granted!

If Marcus Can-Be healthy, the Clip are back in the playoffs. I'm a Maggette fan but Thornton took his job last season, now if we can ship out Mobley for Igodala, I see trouble for a lot of teams in the West. Davis, Igodala, Thornton, Canby, Cpt. Caveman, Thats trouble. Getting the other AI will be a dream, but some dreams come true. The Clip were a shot away from the conference finals 2 years ago, last year was a MASH unit. I'm a true basketball fan and want ALL the teams to be better for the greatest game on the planet. I'll fight with and for Da Clips!

Yeah, I'm sure that Marcus will love it in L.A. The thing that 's so strange to me is why all of the other Clipper players want out.

Good luck, Marcus.....
