Not surprised about where we are ranked, but our little blurb is funny. "Sources say Clippers' recent surge played a role in cross-town rival Lakers recently firing Mike Brown."

^I agree and even though it dont mean squat, it is nice to see (and continue to see) our team in the upper level of these rankings.

I think those rankings are fair. Clippers are gonna show everyone though if they win against Miami/SA! Man it'll be a blast if we win against Miami and SA! That will be AWESOME!

Does anyone know what is the highest ranking the Clippers have ever gotten? I believe we have never gotten 3 or higher on any ranking? Does anyone know?

The good news...3 polls so far and we're anywhere form 4th to 6th. The bad news will be when Hollinger's rankings come out and he has us at #10 or lower and probably behind the Lakers, LOL.

I think you're mis-identifying the motive here. It's about money. Right now there is a combination of factors going on: 1) the lack of the ability for Lakers fans to watch their games on TV dealt a blow to Lakers popularity, while the Clippers games were all on TV; 2) Clippers are the more fun team to watch, particularly since both the Princeton Offense and the Triangle Offense both decrease excitement to slow the game down; 3) Clippers are the better team; 4) Clippers games are cheaper to attend.

That combo is turning casual Lakers fans into casual Clippers fans, which is seriously harming the Lakers bottom line. It's profits that makes them upset. And that is something they cannot afford, with a bloated payroll like the Lakers have this year.

This is whack! We drop from 4 to 5 after spanking San Antonio and Portland and beating Atlanta.

Also, why must we always be compared to the fakers? Dumb analysis.

Lakers lost. The Lakers announcers said after the game:

"this was a battle of the best in the west"

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Most of the west is better than the Lakers. Such homers.

it can be a combination of both. but i will say u do make an interesting point. from a financial perspective, it makes sense. especially since they cant beat good teams. lol

I loved that 3 from Green, and BEST OF THE WEST? I saw it, heard it, scratched my scalp off trying to get rid of it! HOW CAN U NAME THE LAKERS BEST OF THE WEST????!!!!! EMBARRASMENT to the West, that's what they are! SA played the worst they played(against us WE just shut them down) and the lakers still didn't take advantage! They suck! battle LA, LA is already ours!

Did anyone see snake-boy's defense on Green for that game-winner?

Neither did I.

And Joe, don't be so hard about the "best in the West" comment... they're top a 14 team Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_03

What's funny, when Green hit that shot, kobe reminded me of Westbrook when he got lost on defense and let Parker hit the game winning shot. lol
