I'm going to be there at probably 10-11 am to welcome Steve Ballmer. Doors open at 12 in the afternoon. All the coaches and players will be there and I heard there will be opportunities for autographs. The first 2500 people will receive special, once in a lifetime commemorative T-shirts. There is supposed to be food and festivities. I was just wondering if any of you guys plan on going, and if so if you'd like to meet up! Hit me up ASAP so I can organize things! Everything is free!

Doc Rivers, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan are confirmed for the Clippers rally on Monday to introduce Steve Ballmer as owner.

^^^ I can't go because LA traffic is going to be ridiculous and I don't live right around the corner. It is such a weird time, right in the middle of the day on a Monday.

I will be driving down from NorCal with my family tomorrow. I've waited too long for the Clippers to become this premiere franchise. I better get my freaking commemorative shirt too if I'm driving 300 miles lol

P.S. Don't know if I should wear my Blake jersey or my authentic D Miles jersey.

Hey Clipperfan86 I pm'd you but I will be going with my preggo wife and 2yo daughter so I'm kind of restricted on what time I can go and where I can meet up at. At the very least we can say what's up in line and sit near each other for the introduction inside staples.

That's totally fine man. I wasn't expecting too much extra curricular. Just mainly sit together, maybe chat a bit. Cheer together.

Honestly that's the best way. Whoever has front spot in line... everyone else should join in. FTW, I forgot you live in the I.E too. I'm coming from Chino. PM me your phone numbers if you haven't guys. Once I arrive, I'll call everybody and see where we are.. so we can group up/sit together.

I would love to attend -- and can as I am my own boss. But as a latecomer to Clipper Nation (latecomer, not bandwagoner) I feel this event should be for the long suffering Clippers fans only. I would feel like a gatecrasher.

Maybe next year -- or at the Championship parade. That works for me.

Biggest smile: Jordan Farmar. He went from the Out House to the White House -- and stayed in Los Angeles as a bonus. I bet he has a BIG year!

Man who cares. Go make some noise Smile. Latecomer/bandwagoner doesn't matter. This will be the only opportunity to welcome a new owner for probably 20-30 years! Unless of course you prefer work lol.

I know I have a lame-arse excuse but I can't go either and I have been a fan for 2 decades. I think today is possibly the most important day in our franchise yet I have to stay home because the wife is out and my 11 year old dog is super-deluxe sick and she cannot be left alone. My pup may not even be around for the season opener so staying with her is more important to me.

loyal is picking me up but he's in traffic jam. We probably won't get to Staples until 11 or after.
