Repped High Quality Post
The Donald Sterling saga is seemingly near a close, with confirmed reports of awinning bid from Steve Ballmer worth $2.0 billionto purchase theLos Angeles Clippers. It marks the end of a 33-year tenure that has seen more downs than ups; years of inept stewardship, mercurial behavior and a brand that stood for the laughingstock of professional sports.

The infrastructure stuff is really interesting, and I suppose I should of thought of that earlier. Better scouts, analytics, etc. Move us into the forefront. ....

Great article. Thank you for posting, Benny! Clippers have gone from having the Clipper Curse to having the Clipper Charm. Awesome. What a turnaround for this once woebegone franchise. More exciting times ahead for players and fans. ....

Not a problem guys! I've had this samsung phone for 3yrs and finally learned (never needed to) how to copy and paste with my phone haha. That said I'm excited and wearing my Clippers #backinblue cp3 jersey for sports day at workagain. Super stoked. Can't wait for this to get cleared so we can look forward to next season already. Can't wait for better staff and hopefully branding (ie jerseys, logos, commercials, pregame intros) ....

Yay for Benny learning modern technology haha Smile. Really though I too didn't think of the boost to scouting/support staff that Donald was skimping on. It's amazing we have gotten as far as we have as a franchise WITHOUT those things. ....

I like that Luol Deng tidbit.. off-topic but can you imagine having a decent option to defend KD & LBJ? CP/Livingston? JJ/Jamal Deng?/Pierce? Blake/Big Baby DJ/Bird-man? A lot of hypotheticals but in that ballpark would be special! ....

Sign and trade for Deng is interesting, not sure how that is planned to work out. ....

He'd have to take less than max for it to make sense #1 and #2 for us not to have to give up a core guy. Dudley/Barnes/Bullock may be just enough to make salaries work if Deng would take 12mil instead of 15mil. Could be tough and that's assuming Cleveland is even interested in those guys (I wouldn't be lol). Knowing their mindset and pressure....
