Who's going?

Are we going to attempt to black out arena?

Any ideas for signage?

It's obvious the team needs our support and wanted to get input for everyone else.

No blackouts I'm begging you. We are still the clippers and shouldn't e ashamed of it!

Ya let's skip the blackout actually. Let's just support the Clippers and come up with a nice chant pre game or something.

If you can't come up with you're own sign, you shouldn't make one

That's as bad as the blackout. What is so wrong with having some team pride?! I feel like I'm in a twilight zone. Sterling does not represent clipper nation! It's allowing him to pollute something I have held dear.

MAJOR RESPECT TO Lamarcus and the Blazers for this. This is definitely the end of the Donald Era and he really done its caused too much controversy for him to stay and owners and players....

i think i read that the maximum punishment is going to be a fine and i doubt that he will willingly sell the team but yeah lamarcus definitely has my respect.

Nice move by LaMarcus. The only way a boycott would have been effective is if the whole nba players say they won't play. One for all...all for one.

Will definitely be rooting for the Blazers, if the Clippers can't stay focused and win this series.

Major respect from here too.

Speaking of Game 5, I have a feeling that both teams will refuse to play and force the league's hand. How else do you explain cancelling practice along with the players' promise of an even bigger protest in LA?

If their focus is still on protesting - the series is done. It's the playoffs - can't have split focus.

I feel like the series was done as soon as that tape was released. Getting Sterling out is more important.

As a black kid if donald still owns the clips i won't be able to support them anymore. The way the trailblazers are carrying themselves maybe i will become a fan of them

I'm sorry but this series means aboslutely nothing anymore. This is bigger than a dumb series this is a someone still feeling black people should still be oppressed and its truly sad

I think the statement Clips made today and other teams following will help the Clips. IMO, our players probably felt like outcast due to DTS, but with other teams uniting for the "silent protest", I think our players can gain some emotional strength back.

Sterling shouldn't own this team and action needs to occur at the commissioners office and the other owners to make sure he isn't the owner. But the fans don't deserve this. This series means something to us.

it does mean something to us, and it is unfair, i agree. But its hard to give your all when you know your enemy benefits from it as well...

This is only my second post. Feeling so sad and discouraged. Reading the LA Times where Doc says he is uncertain about his future with the Clippers. The players weren't into it today. Practice cancelled. I hope that they can at least be motivated to give it their all for the fans. I no longer live in LA, but I hope that somehow the support from the fans can will the team to win and, focus on advancing, and fighting for that championship ring.

THIS is major support for our team right there. Thank you, LMA, for organizing this for the Clippers.

I hope our team sees how much support they have from their friends, family, and fans.

Hopefully the fans come out and give us a good HCA. Honestly, I couldn't stand Doc's comments in the postgame tonight.. it was total negative speak and he's done such a good job keeping an even keel all year long. Let's just hope it was a heat of the moment thing and we'll get back on track by gametime. Go Clippers!

i get it. I've been a victim of racism and have had experiences that still bother me. that being said, I'm struggling to grasp why this incident has caused people put DTS on par with people like OJ Simpson. he's ignorant and apparently prefers to live a segregated lifestyle. and while, yeah its a disgusting way to think, this doesn't affect anyone but his own ignorant self. i don't get why the players and coach are making themselves out to be victims and people are going along with it. if anything, MINORITIES on and off the court should feel a bit offended, as race issues are not limited to millionaire ball players. i don't get why doc is victimizing the players and even saying he doesn't feel like LA is a safe haven anymore. why shouldn't it be?

there's MUCH MUCH MUCH bigger race-related issues out there than this media circus. this is what causes me to shake my head.

DTS is ignorant, but he didn't kill anyone. he has no place in the league and i hope silver sends him packing, but ease up on the drama.

The debacle has been understandably tough on the players, the coaching staff, & everyone else on the team. It is adversity and something they can overcome. The series is tied 2-2, and game 5 is absolutely critical. I think the crowd will come out and support all the Clippers BIG TIME on Tuesday, and help provide that emotional lift they need and deserve.

Again I really hope that Sterling will man up soon, have a meeting with all the players & staff, and ask for their forgiveness. Then have a press conference and issue the same sort of apology to everyone. Next, relinquish control of the franchise/announce to sell the Clippers at a fair price, etc.

I totally agree with you David. I think next to what he did, the biggest mistake he's making is not coming out and saying anything. He hasn't taken ownership of the situation - he hasn't made an apology/denial or even commented at all. It's as if he doesn't give two cents about the whole thing, which is what makes me the angriest and most worked up about. You did something wrong and offended a lot of people. Man up and right your wrongs.

I wish that would happen, but I can picture Sterling right now thinking he has done absolutely nothing wrong. From what I've read about him, and from meeting him in person, the guy is just so arrogant and out of touch.

Please, anybody who is going to this game I urge you to cheer like it's your last time ever seeing this core play together, because it very well might be.

Our team is going to need our energy to carry them.

Yeah it's a bit of wishful thinking, but hopefully he tries to redeem himself. Guy is getting up there in age, and I don't think he wants this as what people remember him by.

Great article on why Granger should start over Barnes! Throw a wrench at golden state and punish curry in the post.

Yup I completely agree with you! These playoffs are meaningless. We have to focus on the bigger picture and that's to get DTS away from this organization.

I guarantee you guys that if DTS does not sale the team every single one of our players will ask for a trade and Rivers will step down as the coach.

Instead of presenting the trophy to Sterling after we win the championship I feel they should let everyone in attendance of the game (obviously home game) touch the trophy. This has nothing to do with having tickets to the finals.

I'm worry about this team. I feel like Clips are focusing too much on making a statement instead of focusing against their opponent on game 5. I hope Clips are focus ready for the game.

Like most people stated already, I believe we need to cheer and support the team (players and coaches). When I go to Clipper games, I supported the players and coaches, not the owner or even people in the front office. I cheer for the product on the court because they need our support for motivation and energy.

Judging by the post game interviews of Doc, CP3 and Blake, it seems that they are looking for the fans to come out and support them in a big way. We need to be their 6th man and give them the energy and support that they are in need of. CP3 and Blake said that "us" fans have been great all year, now is not the time to turn our backs on these guys, if anything, be extraordinary. "It's our time".

Lol JJ must have forgot about the protest because he had his warm up on during the end of the 2nd half.

I really hope they can look passed all this media smoke and mirrors bullshit. It is stupid, and yes DTS is an awful person, but to let him cloud a potentially amazing playoffs run for all of us, fans and players, is just letting him get in the way again. Come Tuesday lets forget about him completely and be there 100% for this team. I just hope they can focus on playing for the love of the game....
