Anyone considering a re-design of the CTB banner at the top of the page that includes Ballmer. You know, because this is a monumental change for us and it may be good to reflect that change. Smile

its a great idea but (i don't mean this in any offensive way)

before you suggest something like that (since there's only a few that are approved to do it) lets see some samples from you.

No offense taken. I am the least artistic person ever... so whatever I produced would be frightening. Let's all avoid that at all cost.

Sounds like a great idea! I think the banner highlights the team for the website and we would be nowhere without Steve right now so I'm all forit.

Either way banner needs to be updated with duds out of there

This seems like an unnecessary comment (I don't mean this in any offensive way). So because a poster suggests a change on a public forum, he needs to be able to do it for himself first? Joe is gifted at this stuff and it's a tradition thing for the forum that he's always seemed to like doing. It's unfair to expect someone else to have that same ability right off the bat. I think samples would be pointless and unnecessary. Now if Joe was offended by this thread and said this, it may be a different story, but he never has before. I personally think it's a compliment that so many people want more of Joe's work around here (banner/video requests etc).

Why? Are you saying that a guy who was forced to play through injuries for us last year should be demoted? He'd be the only member of our starting five not on the banner. (Early indications point to Dudley being healthy and back to form meaning that Barnes will likely return to his bench role).

Ballmer is an amazing upgrade. (From what we can tell) .... But I think the banner should be reserved for our players.

PS I have given up hope I'm getting a different small forward so the best that we can hope for is that Dudley is healthy and can do what he was supposed to do. If he can.... Perfect. Dudley could very well be our Dudley upgrade. Stay positive

I'm pretty sure Joe is just taking his time finding the perfect picture of Shelly Sterling. After all our #1 fan has to be on the next banner, right?

Right?

Anybody?

pssh, I wouldn't be surprised if she got it mandated to be on the CTB banner. That hag got a sweet heart deal when she sold to Ballmer. Courtside tickets and everything.

I noticed in the press conference Ballmer stressed that we would be "bold" and "take risks". What do you think that means?

Haha! I think David might have something to say about that!

Though I wouldn't be against Judge Michael Levanas having his own shrine on some little corner of the site. That dude is a Clippers hero.

I know, his statement bothered me a bit also. Just what exactly, besides trades, can you DO BOLDLY with a NBA team? ?? I might have to start a topic on this!

you took my post out of context... happens a lot here... I was trying not to piss off JOE.... at least to me it seems he's always asked to do this and that changes... if joe's ok with it then cool whatever....

My comment was meant more like this, if I want to make a suggestion for graphics on a website i don't own i would make the suggestion and give a sample of what I am talking about.. AGain that's just me that is how I do things.... the reason for me stating (no offense) is because the person reading my comment can not really tell what tone of voice is being used. for example I'm sure you didn't mean it in a rude way by saying "This seems like an unnecessary comment (I don't mean this in any offensive way). So because a poster suggests a change on a public forum, he needs to be able to do it for himself first?" but without you realizing it, it does come off very offensive.... on the other had... the other poster and I had an understanding.. why did you feel the need to through in your cents into our conversation.... anywho.... i do not want to argue about this and if you reply I won't reply to your comment.... i apologize if my original comment offended you... I'm not here to offend anyone.... just like you we all have the right to speak our opinion....

We have the last few years. Not sure how we fit Ballmer considering how cluttered it looks now.

IMO the banner is still very applicable right now and looks great, but if there is a large consensus (> 65%) of members who want Steve Ballmer up there, AND Joe has the time to squeeze him in, I'd have no problem with it at all. Might have to remove a player (cough cough Dudley) to make room. I think Dudley may need to cede his banner space anyways to Spencer Hawes.

So I've put up a poll- do you guys want to see Steve Ballmer on the CTB Banner?

I wouldn't have a problem with it but I don't think it's necessary. For one thing, the guy really hasn't done anything yet except to NOT be Donald Sterling. I'd also caution against treating him as our savior... it's nice that he relieved us of the embarrassment of DTS' ownership, but the team will still ultimately be judged by what happens on the court.

Doc designs that, the players execute it - and of course Ralph deserves his spot because... well, it's Ralph!

Besides... we have to save a spot for Larry. Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_19

I suggest just making it only : Ralph, cp3, bg, doc, and Ballmer (and maybe DJ).

Thanks Joe. We'll revisit the poll after training camp starts. Who knows if a trade may have occurred by then as well.

NOT being Donald Sterling and owning the Clippers at the same time is a pretty good achievement in my book Wink

He paid 2B and removed DS from the throne; at minimum he deserves his photo up in the banner.

I want to see Shelly in a cage match against Clipper Daryl for the true #1 Fan Championship in the world (doesn't matter if many of us here were fans before Daryl). Winner gets the courtside seats and 30 parking slots or whatever the eff she got.

PS: I wouldn't mind seeing Balmer on the banner but if you want me to do it it will just be a bunch of stick figures.

Swap out Jared Dudley for Steve Balmer and its perfect. Right now it's a terrible reminder Wink

I haven't been here long, but I'm getting the impression that a number of people don't appreciate how good of a player Jared Dudley normally is. Due to the numerous injuries on our roster, he was forced to play through his tendinitis last season. I'm sure Jared and our team physician would be the first to tell you he really should have sat out most of the year. The absolute LAST thing you want to do is start playing basketball with tendinitis in your knee. For one, the tendinitis is going to get worse and the healing process will be prolonged. Two, you're gonna play like crap with a bum knee. No surprise, Dudley played like crap. Under normal circumstances, Dudley is a proven player. At this point, early indications point to him being healthy and ready to go. That being, expect a PER of 15, around 12ppg in 30 minutes, 40% from deep, and solid defense. The guy stepped up and sacrificed his body (and the opinions of some fans apparently) for the sake of the team. He's earned his spot on the banner a whole lot more than Ballmer has.

I always thought of the banner as a Mount Rushmore, for lack of better description. I don't think it should be changed with every trade or every season. I think it should represent Clippers. I think Ralph, BG, CP3, and Ballmer belong and won't need to be replaced.

it should just be the players, doc and of course ralph. (I hate watching a game on another channel and hearing a different announcer. makes me feel like I'm not watching a real game lol)

Not enough space. I wouldn't put Barnes over Hawes so one player had to go. Plus Hawes is signed long-term.

Nice!

Spencer Hawes looks like he's about to rip some fool's head off and Ballmer's smile is like "Yeah, I just dropped $2Billion and didn't even feel it"... Love it.

looks awesome, and.... if anyone is looking for input, and quite uncalled for on some counts, and.... if my wish was granted, would choose to have Barnes in there rather than JJ.

The new banner looks amazing, clipper*joe! Nice touch to add Ballmer in there. Also like that Spencer Hawes is there too.
