Well I left this thread alone because you were taking things so personally.
But for your information I'm no "Inexperienced Fan" because I didn't know about this internet forum.
Actually I've been a clipper fan longer than most. How do I know? Because I been one most of my life as I live in Los Angeles, and have been going to clippers games when the arena was empty and the only people at the games were the people who rooted for the other team.
I've been through all the ups and down with this team. Not just with talk but with spending my money going to the games when to attract people they would advertise the "Other teams superstar". (Remember those days?)
I am passionate about the clippers and actually have extensive knowledge in basketball in areas of strategy, play calling, and competitive psychology of the game.
So I've more than earned my "Stripes"as a clippers fan. Maybe not on this board, but in REAL LIFE.
