We're going to cover the Lakers championship banners at staples with banners with pictures of our players.

Looks fantastic! Not sure why they didn't do it long ago. I find it humorous that Lakers fans are all butthurt. CP3 took over a Kobe store today and recently Clippers billboards are replacing Lakers ones at an alarming rate. I love it

Just read the Laker Nation blog, let the crap storm begin.

In a way I can understand it, branding of the home team etc, but it does come across a little petty.

It is going to be fun at the 2 Laker visiting games sitting among all the cat calls.

On second thought F it, when we play at home it is our house!

It looks cool!

Reading all of the comments from the different sites like bleacher report make me realize why I dislike Laker fans so much. They all seem to have a sense of entitlement and are THE worst homers. Last I checked...the seats are purple because of the LA Kings.

Funny as hell! Totally troll!

Is there a league imposed limit on how big a championship banner can be? ...because when we get ours, I'd like it to be big enough to obscure Minneapolis'... uh, I mean the lakers'.

That group of banners should be converted to the CTB header graphic. Super awesome.

I love this move by Doc.A small move but it changes things a lot.Now it feels like our own Arena rather than sharing one.So far I am loving everything Doc is bringing to the table.

Wasn't staples basically built for the kings?

The kings have banners in the rafters where you can't cover them

AEG does own a small percentage of the Lakers. So I wonder if this kinda upsets AEG.

And Artmaggot, can I use that as an avatar? Can you reduce it to 20 KB?

Lakers fans can whine all they want. It has nothing to do with them. In our home games we can do what we want so long as we are not damaging anyone's property. This should have been done a long time ago. Lakers crap shouldn't be displayed in Clippers home games.

"This should have been done a long time ago"

Certainly should have. On the other as their franchise really goes into demise it's nice to put a nail in the coffin.

Laker fans are such morons. YOu read the replies and it is" their city, we moved in on their turf". Do they not know their team moved here too? Probably not,they aren't bright enough to know neither of our teams were born in LA. The probably think LAKERS was named after LA,not because they are from the land of 1000 lakes. Don't the realize their team is renting , just as we do? What complete idiots.

Stephen A defended this decision viciously and picked us to go to the finals. He's one of the few who respects us.

AEG who built and owns Staples arena is the owner of the Kings and minority (30%) owner in the Lakers.

Lakers fans are so bent out of shape about this, it's really hysterical and kind of scary. Also nick young supposedly takes exception to it lol. Nick young didn't win those banners

Nick Young is such a douchebag LMAO. Glad we let this fool walk. He's calling out Doc and the Clippers organization for this.

"Disrespectful"? Not when it's a Clips home court. Well, at least the Clips didn't use this large banner to cover them up...

There's been a lot of sparring in the last year between players on each organization and the fans. I follow Matt Barnes on twitter, and during the summer some guy was calling Matt a "Lakers" reject and verbally sparring with Matt.

I think this led Matt to go on Nick Young's instagram and leave negative comments on his page. The two organization's fans are at each other. This will make for a very intense rivalry.

Young's instagram was bombed by comments by Matt, that is probably why

Yeah it was. Both teams are leasing the building, so its not like the Lakers own it. They have the right to put their banners up during their home games, but we have the right to cover them up when we play

Like Lamar before him. Laker fans like to ignore things when it doesn't suit them.
