I received this last week but was unable to post it because I had a topic merged and I got put in the penalty box. David can you fix that for me? I think I'm a responsible poster on this site.


As the new interim CEO of the Clippers, I want to introduce myself to you and thank you for your indispensable support in a time of challenge and transition for our organization. You - our fans - are the reason the team exists and we couldn't be more grateful for your loyalty.

When Commissioner Silver appointed me to this position, I made a commitment to him and the League to preserve and protect the team and to restore the confidence of our fans, players, sponsors and employees in this great organization. After meeting with the entire Clippers staff earlier this week, I've been inspired by the work they have done and continue to do on your behalf. I'm proud of the way the team has performed in the post-season - a testament to our brilliant coach and world-class players who have risen above the noise. The organization is strong and resilient, and everyone involved has demonstrated immense strength of character during this time.

While I won't be involved in the process of deciding who will eventually own the Clippers, I have no doubt that Commissioner Silver and the NBA will prevail. With your continuing support, we will do everything we can to make sure that this organization lives up to your expectations and represents our finest values going forward.

We have a real opportunity in front of us. We took some important initial steps this week to start down a new path and I intend to be here as long as it takes to finish the job. Throughout the team's history, the one constant has been you, our MVPs. On behalf of the entire Clippers organization, thank you for standing by us. You have not let us down, and we're not going to let you down.

Dick Parsons

Interim CEO

I hope by new path he doesn't mean rebuilding... Better be something like getting LeBron or something...

Why would we rebuild? He means post sterling era

Yeah, I agree. New path is in reference to the post DTS malaise. On that note, I'm more excited for the outcome of the 6/3 vote than the NBA playoffs!

What is the big deal if he played basketball in college? Who cares??? We aren't asking him to suit up and spell Chris Paul during games. Seriously who cares?

I just read on NBC sports that "Dick" had claimed playing college ball in Hawaii but that wasn't true, kinda weird but who really cares. Guy has a long history of turning around companies and was a great choice for this job. Seeing how DTS didn't want any African American people at his games I wonder how much consternation & stress this move created. I love it.
