LOL, I like how they referred to the Lakers as a "sleeping doberman." They look more like a jealous poodle nowadays.

Considering he called the Clippers "Showtime" last season and now this, it seems like Magic is switching his allegiance haha.

No C4 is right.

Kobe is a free agent?? LAL would be stupid to sign him unless he takes a pay cut and shuts up. He wants his record book numbers so he may.

If not will he go to the Cavs for MLE to be with LeBron and Kyrie for another ring? How about to Houston to back up Harden? Unfortunately for him we don't need a back up SG.

As far as LAL jerseys I would wear a Clip jersey to an LAL game (If I had an uzi and an attack dog)

If the Lakers are that upset about it, they should build their own arena. I realize that they have a 25 year lease but they've already played 14 and when you get past all the red tape and actually build a new arena, you are down to around 6 years left on the lease and that's when you start talking buyouts and stuff.

Think about it. Despite what Clipper fans think of them, the Lakers are the most popular brand in the NBA and NHL yet they pay rent in a building that only houses 19,000. When you look at their season ticket waiting list, they could easily fill up a 23,000 seat arena.

There's also the issue of naming rights. If Farmers is willing to pay $700 million towards the NFL then you have to think the Lakers could get at least half that. You pay for around 70% of the arena right there. Multiply an extra 4,000 tickets x 40-50 games a year x average ticket price and you have the building paid off right there. All the other events just add to your bottom line.

Not only that but the Clippers could finally be the sole NBA tenant at Staples. Win win for both teams.

haha i don't think he's switching alliances so much as he's just an intelligent person who knows that covering the banners doesn't mean anything to the lakers

The showtime thing was more of a in the moment thing. Magic is a pretty poor analyst to be honest who is prone to saying things like that. I remember he called Wade the 2nd best player in the world after the 2013 Finals which is just crazy. Its more like he isn't a hater.

whether Magic has jumped on the bandwagon or not the overall picture is that the media is really starting to have more faith in the Clippers. Five years ago Magic viewed this club as a joke. Now he calls CP3 and the Clippers "Showtime" that is a huge compliment
