New floor, lighting like the Lakers, elaborate intros. All the way

The floor is fine, the Lakers's lighting is nothing one should strive to emulate (barely being able to see anything does NOT make your basketball team look more sophisticated), and the intros are no worse than any of the other NBA teams out there.

At least IMO.

They tried to get creative with their intro and they ended up with a video of everyone floating on a ship in a storm, so at least the bar is set really low. Last year was a bit better cause LOL LAZERS ARE COOL PEW PEW PEW.

They need to.at least get a new dj. And you know that Lights Out thing is cool.

The Floor is really dull imo.

You mean the lighting like the Knicks? The Lakers copied the Knicks just so you know. The floor is only a few years old and the intros are now more elaborate compared to years past.

Sterling did go all out: he got doc rivers, reddick, dudley, collison, and dumped out the garbage.

Between the music and that Clippers thing they have, one of the corniest intros in the league.

And I know the Knicks had it first, but they don't share an arena with the Clippers.

I am more worried about getting a better team. Lakers fans can worry about lighting, intros and all that minor stuff since they will be in the lottery.

What would you guys think if the Clippers changed their name?

New culture and new stars, times have changed, to fully change their identity that might be the last step to start a new legacy/dynasty...

For what reason? Did the Mavs change their name when they got Dirk? Did the Bulls change their name when they got Jordan? I am sure long time fans like how things currently are (not that I am a long time fan mind you). At the end of the day a name is just a name. As long as you win the name doesn't matter and the Clipper curse of the past will be slowly forgotten.

this discussion came up before. One poster brilliantly alluded to the long years of supporting the clippers with this uniform and logo. One detriment to changin it is that the success become more associated with the new uni and logo, so for those that were loyal during the drought it takes away from that experience in a way. I like it the way it is and hope we keep this uni and logo so when people think of success the cursive clippers logo comes to mind Smile

SMH at anyone that wants a name/logo change. our history, however futile, is what makes us so damn special.

I'd rather be named after a type of Ship, and my team is close to a major body of water than be named after bodies of water that really aren't close to where my team plays. Just sayin.

lol yup. It is a reference to their old location of minnesota. I used to laugh when some lakers fans would say that the team should move back to san diego those same fans conveniently forgot that the lakers were a minnesota team

Those ships were from here in San Diego. Very Happy

I've always wanted the Clippers to move back here, but not anymore.

Now that the team is finally great, all the Laker "fans" around my way are just gonna use it as a reason to switch.

A lot of Laker fans here are the worst. They'll say a bunch of stuff like "I don't understand how a person can be a fan of a team from a place like Miami. They don't even live there." Then when you say, "Don't you live in San Diego?", they'll go "uhh I mean, you have to at least have been in that team's city...yeah. Those fans just want to chase rings. Besides, the Lakers are the closest one to us.".

If anybody in San Diego uses that excuse, the Clippers should've been their choice, since the team was actually IN San Diego. I wonder how they made their decision though, I'm sure it had nothing to do with championships, because they're not ring chasers after all... riiiight.

RANT OVER!

The Lakers' lighting sucks. Yeah, they want the spotlight only to the court but who wants to have a dark arena? The Lakers can also use "lights out" to mask the empty seats in the latter part of a blowout game to make it look like the game is still packed. Sneaky bastards.

Plus, if we have the "lights out" lighting, what is the pointof the "sea of red" come playoff time if the fans won't be seen on TV anyway?

Ummm... Is nobody going to take this opportunity to pick some seriously low hanging fruit?

I THINK THAT WE ALL WANT A NEW DJ... UNFORTUNATELY, THE ANDERSON VAREJAO TRADE DIDN'T GO THROUGH!

New DJ? I remember at the start of the season there was the promise of a new DJ, one with post moves. I'd settle for just getting that one back again.

DJ Dense is the same Dj as years before. This thread is also pointless.

I have never had a bad experience at a Clipper game (except a concession guy ripped me off of my change once, did complain and received 3 vouchers).

I'd boycott if that happened. I want to see the Los Angeles CLIPPERS win the championship. Not the Los Angeles insert stupid name. I wonder his Sonics fans would feel after the Thunder win it all.

I think the lighting is great. It's even better in the playoffs when everyone's wearing red. If the Clippers are gonna emulate the Lakers, it should be through maintaining our newly found winning culture.

I doubt a flashy video before the game will make the team play better,I think DTS has gone all out in the ways it counts.

thanks for the rep. The front office has made some wonderful moves. I can't believe how active they have been. In the past years there was always something they may have done wrong, but for once I can say that tjey have made bold changes to make this team a contender. I am very proud of this team

I hit about ten Clipp games a year. The floor, sound, intros, and the likes is great in my opinion. I can't front the darken arena for the Lakers looks awesome though. But the Clipps experience is definitely up there.

If Sterling hasn't gone all out, he's certainly close--he signed the highest-paid NBA coach to run the Clippers (as well as gave up a future 1st-round pick for the opportunity), readily signed CP3 to a max contract, and has given his front office free rein to sign and trade for upgrades to the team (JJ Redick, J Dudley, M Barnes). The previous Sterling would have considered del Negro's 56 win-record sufficient to retain him on a budget-level short contract. The foundation of Rivers, CP3(PG), and B Griffin perhaps created a snowball effect in enticing Matt Barnes and Darren Collison to sign with the Clippers for less than market value (considerably less in Collison's situation), and may entice Byron Mullens to likewise sign for below market rate.

Sterling may not be the most enthusiastic NBA owner and some of his personal attributes are not the most salutatory, especially in areas of race and culture, but one can't deny he seems to be serious about developing a title-level NBA team.
