Los Angeles Clippers "You've got a superstar [Chris Paul]; that's the first thing. He gives you great leadership on the court. That helps you as a coach. It makes you look like a smart guy. That's a security blanket. "The second thing is the market. A great market and a superstar -- put those two together and you'll always be able to attract players. Players are going to want to come to play with Paul in L.A. They also have great facilities.....

Lol at Brooklyn being first. We have 2 stars. Can you post Nets part? Thanks.

^^Regarding Brooklyn-- Los Angeles is awesome, and I like it better, but New York is New York. You can't argue with that. Money. Prokhorov is the anti-Sterling. And while DTS has done a decent job recently, he still doesn't have the best track record. Prokhorov is willing to throw money anywhere, anytime, and that must look nice if you're looking for a job. While they don't quite have the same star power we have, Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Joe Johnson is nothing....

Knicks were also the anti DTS look how that turned out. the Nets now have a bunch of bad new contract thanks for the owner and will be crippled by it going forward. LA is an equal market to NY just about with better weather. We have more future cap flex, better stars with more upside. Nets shpuld be 2. ....

Rooks you need to consider who's making the decisions. For an under 30 PLAYER for sure they would normally choose NY over LA. More to do and a busier city. From the perspective of veteran coaches in their 50's and 60's though who love warm weather? They choose LA 8 out of 10 times. So again for a player NY, for a coach LA is a better place most the time. Plus our specific team situation is better. As I....

As I said up above sure our owner is cheaper but look at the 2000's Knicks vs the 2000's Clippers. They are the only team that had less success than us and they had THE biggest payroll in the NBA, while we were known as frugal. Big spending if it's not smart spending is worse than being frugal because of how it cripples the team long term. Now they have Lopez+Deron locked up on max deals (no biggy) and....

Agreed. My biggest concern with DTS that he's yet to prove is that he's willing to pay for an all star front office and coaches. When it comes to players... he's been spending pretty freely for about a decade now. ....

Brooklyn Nets "The Nets have a lot of stuff you want. The owner [Mikhail Prokhorov] has money and he's willing to spend, so you're not worried about shallow pockets. That's huge. The market you're in is huge. You'll always be able to attract free agents because of the market you're in. "This team is already positioned to be good. They got talent -- guys that can play. The next guy that comes in can really have success. All they need is time.....

...But coaches? I think(not totally sure) Chicago paid for Vinny's first year in LA, and before that we had the whole fiasco with DTS not wanting to pay out the rest of Dunleavy's contract and them going to court...you could see why a coach would want to avoid that type of situation and go to the owner who has no problem paying a coach a lot of money. Sterling's improved, but he's still not perfect, and coaches know that. That....
