The inhouse bickering doesn't surprise me, there is every chance this could be the last game of the season for the clippers so people are venting in advance in fear of the possible lose.

To me there is no advantage to be at home, this team has been so inconsistent in this series, it's like Jekyll and Hyde, just flip a coin and what you get is what you shall receive on the day. If we screw around and this game is close I can see curry do to us what lillard did tithe rockets yesterday.

I'm on record saying we should draft Steven Adams, but what I liked about him was his offensive game. I didn't think he was going to be as good of a defender as he is.

Memphis is actually holding their own so far. Surprising.

Wow, great first quarter by the Grizzlies. Looks like OKC underestimated them because of Z-Bo's suspension. I hope our Clippers have intensity right off the bat and maintain it for 48 minutes. Can't allow the Warriors to breathe.

I'd imagine there must be some nervous faces at NBA HQ right now after how hard they tried to hand this series to OKC!

So who would u guys rather the Clippers face in the second round? Grizzlies or Thubder? I would love to see another Clips vs. Grizz series to see what doc does and truly test DJ and Griffin to see how far they've come since last season

Something to be said for both.

Memphis = bad matchup, but we have home court, plus the revenge factor.

OKC = better matchup, plus nothing legitimizes us more than beating the MVP.

Let them beat each other up over 4 overtimes and I'll be happy to face the winner.

OKC. Soft, poor coaching, two-man team.

Thing is, OKC have Durant and they have tony allen to slow them down. We would have a tough time stopping him if he gets hot. So it's pretty much a toss-up to who the Clippers would match up better with. Westbrook would give CP3 a big fit too.

Doc doesn't sound confident in pre game - wish he would try to keep focus on court, he always gives the media quotes that propels the off court stuff

Shelly Sterling must know she's hated by a whole lot of people, but she still insists on being there. She's nuts.

Not good that she is there. Commish made a mistake and should have banned the whole family.

Can't let this be a distraction. The team needs to focus on the game.

Brings to mind Jimmy Kimmel's first interview of CP3 after he joined the Clips...

"Maybe I'll waste a turnover just throwing the ball in your face"

If he does that early, then gets on with the game, I'd be cool with it.

Didn't you say you were an east coast fan? This affects la fans more than anything. No to relocation but our local, non hardcore fanbase is totally lame obviously.

Imagine moving to Seattle where their crowd is ridiculous. Jamal would def resign lol , but the Clippers deserve a great fan base

No, relocation isn't necessary. The way to create a bigger and more loyal fanbase is to start winning games like this in the playoffs.

East Coast fan or West Coast fan. Its sickening to see fans of opposite teams fill up half of the arena to the point where its half and half. It should never be that way

A reason for winning playoff games like this is because of a great fan base , but you are correct about winning. Fans want to be fans of winning teams. We would have an out pour of fans if we made the finals like OKC

I also think the new owners will probably do a better job of reaching out to potential fans than DTS ever did, which will also help.

Would you come to games if they were in Seattle?

The majority of fans on this board are local and attend games. I personally don't appreciate people from thousands of miles away talking about moving my team.

The reason we get opposing fans at our games is because massive amounts of people from all over the country migrate to Los Angeles. Same can't be said for most NBA cities.

Exactly. Besides, the NBA would never move any team to Seattle. They need Seattle as a sword of Damocles hanging over the head of any city that refuses to build a new stadium, or any other number of things against the interests of the NBA.

I loved the Sonics-Blazers rivalry back in the day, but I've accepted that Seattle will likely never get a team again.

No need to get fiesty. I love the team being in LA. I plan to take a trip to LA just to go to a home game. and that is a trip across the country....

I totally get what ur saying, it's the just the unfortunate fact that California has 4 teams. I would never want the Clippers to relocate because I do live in LA and actually attend games. Best part of being a fan to any sport team.

Magic Johnson with the Guggenheim money will cure most of the Clippers fan base woes.

I'm not angry at all. I just enjoy going to games and you're advocating taking that away from me.

The thing about Los Angeles is that it's a city of migrants... a microcosm of America itself. In such a vast melting pot, people tend to lean on their roots as their identity, hence many Americans calling themselves "Irish", "Italian" or even "African-American" without ever having even visited those places... let alone speaking the language.

Same reason they wear the jerseys of the city they grew up in or went to college in. Yet as an Immigrant, my ties to the Clips help me feel a PART of L.A.

You don't go to games in L.A. and you won't in Seattle, so it makes no difference to you if the team is moved. It DOES make a difference to me.

Baad, I love u man, but no more lobbying for magic owning this team. We don't want Lakers association here...could you imagine when Paul becomes a free agent, is he going to be fair when the Lakers come knocking...hmm no! He would give the Lakers Paul for a package of Hill, Young, Meeks, and Johnson....in other words another Pau Gasol trade....please don't bring his name up again

People are still vastly overestimating the level of involvement he would have in the franchise. In reality, Magic is just like what Oprah is to the other group - a famous name to headline the group who doesn't actually have the time or the desire to be involved in day-to-day operations. At most, he'd be more like an ambassador and promoter than a true owner, IMO.

Lmao. Magic trades Griffin and Paul for 40 million dollar trade exception to the Lakers. I can see it now :p. I want the Ellison/Geffen/Oprah group to get us. Geffen wanted us when we sucked and they have the most funds to get things improved.

Also, if Magic ever started proposing favorable crap to the Lakers, do you really think the Guggenheim group would even listen to him? They're not spending a billion dollars on a glorified farm team.

That being said, I would be just fine with the Oprah/Ellison/Geffen group. I don't think we could go wrong with either one.

Why shouldn't he? First, Magic wouldn't be the actual owner. He would be a minority investor, with Mark Walter or one of his cronies being the actual owner. Second, even if Magic did end up owning the team, do you honestly believe Magic will just turn the team into a Lakers farm team? I doubt the last thing Silver wants is for the value of one of their teams to go down due to sabotage, especially with the Clippers pulling in so much revenue for the NBA.

I can understand not wanting a former Lakers great to be part of the ownership though. The rest is just conspiracy theory junk.

Geffen and friends wouldn't be bad, either.
