Since the creator of the term "Lob City" has officially declared it dead.

http://www.cbssports.com/nba/eye-on-bas ... ty-is-done

Its time for a new identity built on Doc River's philosophy. Team Defense. Defense wins Championships.

Let's create a new identity of a tough, suffocating, defense where teams know they can't drive on us, will always have a hand in their face when they shoot outside, and know we will run when we steal the ball.

#MobCity

LobCity will still be there... but its time for a new identity.

BTW, I've been a Clipper Fan since 1992 and I've never been so excited as I am this year. I love you all my Clipper brothas and sistas on TopBuzz. Yes, even you ClipperJoe! haha Its a new season... new year, and as long as we stay healthy, we're going to contend for the next five years!

I bought tickets for 21 games this season and I will probably buy more.

Let's do this CLIPPER NATION!!! Stand up!

I like what I've seen from our defense so far, but I'm still a bit concerned with our rebounding. We really need Blake and DJ to average 20rpg between the two of them. At least that's what I'd like to see. DJ is looking to be a lot more active on defense this year, so it will be important for us to be able to capitalize off his shot blocking ability by securing rebounds from blocked/altered shots and not giving up 2nd chance points. I don't know how much focus is placed in this area but I think it will be crucial to our success.

If we still had Reggie and KMart then it would fit. Right now it's more like #swisscheesecity like ekker3 said

Our bench defense is atrocious. Our bench has too many poor defenders. We need a good defensive backup big.

Our defense bigs suck. Mullens isn't even that good on offense, he just chcks 3s, and plays absolutely no defense. We'll see what Doc can do.

From what I've seen of Mullens so far I don't reckon he's getting many minutes.

I don't think we have the personnel to defend well. DJ will be a beast. People laugh when I say DJ may develop a short shot. He has hit shots before. His shot was not an accident. Some guys can hit jumpers but can't hit FT's. Mark my words.

After the goon squad we started acquiring guys who aren't known to be willing to get dirty and do the little things with the exception of Barnes.

Kmart,Evans, Mo Williams, Nick Young were all beast coming off the bench

I heard a rumor that the reason why it was reported Evans was going to Boston in that trade deal, only to end up staying is because KG said he wouldn't play for BKN unless Evans stayed. If true, we may never see Evans leave the Nets until KG is gone.

Our alternatives are limited. You can't build a wall with paper machee (Sp)

Can we make our bench better defenders? Do they have the ability? You can't just say "make Mullens better" if he doesn't have the ability

Can we fix the problem by team defense? Do they have the ability?

Is there any big guy available now?

Do we keep a spot open had pray for a healthy Okafor?

Do we get sliced and diced every game by inferior teams?

Pretend you're the Front Office. What do you do?

Doc's great belief in himself and his ability to get the best out of players might come to bite him. Signing Mullens wasn't a risk until the only other big man capable of playing C that was signed was Hollins. There's only so much you can do if 1) a player just isn't that good, and 2) a player just doesn't know how to self-motivate. There is still some need for self-motivation, it can just be cultivated better in different environments.

It is a very good trait, but not to the extreme as it can lead to a bit of overvaluing what you have. With that said, this team is good enough to battle with the best, but the missing piece is still that third big man.
