"...FOR LIFE..." sounded really badass until you remember he was talking about an 81 year-old man.

Keep the name, stay in LA or within 30 miles of LA, don't care about the logo.

I've said it before and I'll keep saying it. Either the Lakers or Clippers need to build their own arena. 2 teams in one crib is just tacky. Throw in the fact that it's a hockey arena more so than a basketball one and it makes it even worse. If the new owners, assuming there are new owners, want to do it then I don't care where it goes. Guggenheim can put it in the Dodger stadium parking, Caruso can connect it to one of his developments or Geffen can build it on the westside. I don't care. Just branch away from the Lakers.

If they want to move to Anaheim, that's fine too. Just keep the Los Angeles name. The Rams played in Anaheim but were the LA Rams and the Angels went to court to be called the LA Angels. The Clips can do it too.

I also hear that the Lakers are building their own practice facility so that they can have naming rights and not pay AEG rent anymore. Well why not build your own arena as well. The Laker brand is so popular that naming rights can pay for a huge chunk of the building. From there, you own and control your destiny as opposed to letting AEG suck you dry. In that case, the Clippers are fine being the only NBA tenant at Staples but at the end of the day, covering up banners is just lip stick on a pig.

Why should we move to anaheim? I'd rather stay at staples and share the arena. Who cares that we share it with lakers?

What True LA Clipper Fans voted for the team to move? Are you FN Serious???

I'm calling you out right now. If you voted for the team to move, you are a Bandwagoner. Plain and Simple. No Longtime Clipper Fan that has gone to the games in LA and has taken their family and friends would Ever vote for the team to move.

Fake Fans.

GTFO of here with that. I simply would like to have an easier/closer drive to games so I can attend more since I live in OC. Give me a f'ing break. SMH.

How does "Los Angeles Stars" strike you?

Keep the colors and certainly keep them in LA.

It would be incredibly stupid by all counts to move the team. From a financial standpoint and from a fan standpoint. I don't think renaming the team is a good idea either despite the team's poor past and history but I guess that one might be debatable?

Hell NO! to any rebranding. Clippers name is unique and not used in pro sports at the top leagues. Columbus Clippers Yankees minor league team is one of few names. If it is good enough for the Yankees it is good enough for the NBA.

At least Clippers is something. It is a Clipper ship seen in SD harbor and Pacific ocean and that is how they acquired the name.

Lakers? What is a Laker. LA Lakers have no picture, no body, no logo, it did not even originate in CA.

A Laker is truly a Large Lake Trout from Minnesota or a ship on the great lakes. Twin Cities MN is not connected to Great Lakes so Lakers = Lake Trout.

laker

/ˈlākər/

noun

North American informal

noun: laker; plural noun: lakers

  1. a lake trout.

  2. a ship constructed for carrying cargo on the Great Lakes.

I would never advocate changing Lakers nickname because they have such a rich history of winning. However the nickname itself is not being used properly. They do not even have a logo. I call them the LA wordmarks. At least Clippers logo gives a semblance of a Clippper Sail up and showing motion. Leave it alone or add a ship, but the name stays.

If teams rebranded every time they had a bad owner, many teams would have to rebrand.

I'm adamantly against a name change - the only name I like even a little, similar to yours is the Los Angeles Dream. But I just love the name Clippers.

Too close to the Hollywood Stars which was a baseball team before the Dodgers got here.

I don't understand why anyone would want to change the name. We're Clippers fans, why would changing the name even be an idea?

its like spending your whole life building a home from scratch enduring the blood, sweat, tears, and frustration. An earthquake tumbled it down, but you dealt with it and rebuilt. Mudslides, hurricanes, and tornadoes took their toll, but you stuck around and made sure you wouldn't stop till you had a finished product.

Years upon years later, all that hard-work and loyalty finally paid off and you finally have one of the nicest houses on the block. The investment paid off!

....only a few of your pals showed up to the housewarming party and decide they want to paint the house a different color, add a pool, tear down a room, and an new patio. They claim the new additions will give the house a new look, a look that will even help take away the bad memories from the earthquakes, hurricanes, and tornadoes.

your response is simple. those horrible experiences are what makes this house (this clipper experience) so damn special the way it is. the clipper name is an expression of blue-collar and unparalleled loyalty. changing the name would be nothing more than selling out.

This annoying candidate from anaheim wants to form a blue ribbon committee to offer the clips a "second chance" in OC. Screw her, seriously. We don't need a second chance - we are trying to offload our owner. He has been severed from the franchise. I hate when these people smell blood in the water. The nba is not going to move us out of Los Angeles. Anaheim is a different kind of place - it's not really la. I love Laguna and Disneyland as much as anyone - but the clips should not be brow beaten into moving there

Nobody wants to Buy the Clippers because they're a good team Right now, they want to buy them because they're in the 2nd largest market in basketball and they know the other team will never go up for sale, Clippers will never move, it just makes no sense for them to do so.

We're the Los Angeles Clippers.

Not the Los Angeles Clippers of Anaheim. Why do you think Arty Moreno put LA in the team name. Because its the 2nd largest market in America and one of the largest markets in the world. This isn't about Disneyland.

GTFO of here with that.

Around the WORLD, people know LA.

With the younger generation, We're slowly taking over LA and you want to move the team??? LA LIVE and STAPLES CENTER is the new Manhattan.

Keep the TEAM NAME, Keep it in LA.

Agree. If Mike Trout were a Dodger, he would be an International Superstar. Since he's a Los Angeles Angel of Anaheim, only baseball fans know him even though he's a MVP Candidate every year.

LA is a GLOBAL NAME.

The OC is where you go to get married and settle down and take your kids to disneyland, The Hills, Real Housewives... the Mighty Ducks... not the Kings.

Keep the team the LA Clippers.

The LA Stars is one of the worst ideas I have ever heard for a name.

Why not just re-name them The LA Quakes and re-name the arena... The Epicenter. Are you guys freakin kidding me??? The LA Dream??? The LA Stars? How old are you guys?

I agree with this post. How about the Los Angeles Clippers. Red, White, and Blue. New Owner. Move on.

I Route for the "LA" Clippers, I'm from LA not Anaheim or any other place, and like I said your not Buying a NBA Franchise your buying into the LA market what smart business would leave that market, this team was successful even when they sucked, go some were else and see if that happens, this isn't going to ever happen, it's Laker fan's who want the Clippers out of LA and City's who want an NBA franchise who feed this Clippers should move "Stuff". The Nets got out of New Jersey for a reason you know....... Move the Team LOL, Move your Life, I'm sorry I've been hearing this for years, I'ts annoying.
