I was sitting here right now remembering the years where for me a .500 season was a great season. Winning 20-30 games was the norm. I had very small hope for change in the organization and didn't think we would ever get a draft right after many draft failures. Nobody wanted to come here and we failed to lure both Kobe and Gilbert Arenas away to join Brand+Maggette and co and turn things around.

Now I almost tear up when I think about how the day we never thought would come is here. Now after 13 or 14 years of following the team I feel like it's all paying off and the patience of all of us is being rewarded. It's almost like a religious experience how blind faith pays off later on.

We not only look like we can win the title this year but contend for years to come. What's more is the front office seems passionate about building and keeping this thing going, we have a coach who's passionate about changing our history and players who love each other, the franchise and want to buy in 110 percent.

I can now see 10+ years of playoff runs and a Mavericks like turnaround where we went from lotto team to champs and perennial 50+ win years. Retirements of the jerseys of Blake Griffin and Chris Paul. The foundation of this franchise for the coming decades is being laid down now.

I laugh when people even question , are the Clippers the best team in the league.

The Clippers have the best point differential in the league,they're not just beating teams theyre destroying teams, Blake's making his free throws,DJ is having a career year,Bledsoe's finally getting more minutes,and can guard anyone,Barnes has been huge (especially on Defense) ,and Grant Hill and Billups aren't even playing. And Jamal Crawford off the bench nonetheless is leading the team in scoring.

And when it comes to our challengers for the title:

-Memphis the Clippers have already shown they can beat in a series (even with a hobbled Blake and CP3 in game 6 & 7),

-The Clippers are Oklahoma's worst nightmare,because they can match them athleticly(Bledsoe's probably. the only person that can D up Westbrook in the league).

-The Lakers would run out of gas and would get run off the floor.

-Which just leaves San Antonio the one team that the Clippers I'm sure will not want to deal with in the playoffs (although the Clippers beat San Antonio already twice this year).

And the Clippers have the Heats Number by the way if they get that far (I don't see any other team in the east able to win a title anytime soon). And the Clippers can put Caron/Matt Barnes/Grant Hill/And even Blake Griffin on Lebron to slow him down.

The Clippers are the best team in the league ,the rest of the league is just going to have to get use to that. And after more then 15 years as a Clipper fan It's F***in awesome.

I've been a fan for a very long time and I never thought I'd be able to see a clipper team this damn good. After all the "WTF" look I get when I tell people I'm a clipper fan to now everyone giving me props and congratulating me on our team. Times have surely change and I hope for many more successful seasons ahead.

ON the Dodger board I am a member of, we have a pact that the next WS we go to a bunch of us are getting Dodger tats. Get to the finals and I will do the same for the Clips (If they can penetrate my old fart lizard skin with those puny needles)

Guys we have to embrace it to the fullest! Ive been a hardcore fan for 10 years and never have I lived something like this with my Clippers. There used to be a point where i rooted for both teams. But now I hate the Lakers and there fans who are so damn ignorant. Im the only Clippers fan in my family and walk around with my Griffin jersey with my chest way up high. Even in previous years I would do it. But now guys we have to rub it in there face. Especially since we are the best team in Los Angeles. And much so the NBA. And yes I would cry if we win the title! Im man enough to admit that! I love my Clippers!! GO CLIPS!!

There were a few moments in sports that drew tears for me.

  • When the Chris Paul trade was official. Even though Blake was already with us, Chris Paul getting traded here officially ended our torment.

  • 27 point comeback. I get the sniffles even if I watch the comeback on YouTube.

  • Getting swept by the Spurs. Despite getting swept, the Clippers faught till the end. The closing seconds did it for me.

Just imagining a championship gives me chills. The confetti raining down at Staples Center, a standing ovation from the crowd, our guys celebrating, listening to Ralph Lawler: THE LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS ARE THE 12-13 NBA WORLD CHAMPIONS. And as passionate and loyal Lawler is to the Clippers, just to hear those words come out of his mouth will bring heavy tears to my eyes.

It would brings tears of joy to my eyes, just like it did in 02 when the Angels finally broke though.

Actually, I'd probably shed a few more tears due to our historically bad past...then do this to some of those Laker fans and radio personalities... Nasty

I know we deserve it gents. I really do, but lets hold our bearing when we do win. We are better fans and as much as i want to go ape sh1t after we win a championship, lets hold our composure. Let's not act like laker fans and show that we are a bit more dignified. It should be controlled chaos when we win

Winning a Chip would be too much to handle, I cried when we beat Memphis in game 1. I'm gonna be like KG after the 08 finals.
