I know CTB members are up & down California. But what about outside of Cali? I want to see CTB members range?

So can you tell me where you are (State, City or countrie) at representing CTB.

CTB Rules!

Aloha! I live in Hawaii Kai on the island of Oahu. We get Prime Ticket and all the other LA sports channels out here with Oceanic Time Warner Cable. Since we don't have any pro teams in Hawaii, a lot of locals adopt different west coast teams.

Been living in Denver for 2 years. It's a wonderful place to be a Chargers fan.

As you may know Australia over here. I must admit I have only started to follow the clippers since Blake came, never liked the lakers so I guess it was natural to love the clippers, I have also never supported an NBA team since I don't have an affinity for a particular state/city but I do now and no question forever.

y'know i'm always annoyed when people rag on the Clips for starting to get "bandwagon fans" when they become good, but this post made me realize that we also gained "bandwagon haters" just the same...

I will likely never experience a Clippers home game...

I live on the other side of the country so games do not end until 12 a.m.-1 a.m. and then I have to turn around and get up at 5 a.m. for school. BUT I DO IT EVERY NIGHT AND LOVE EVERY BIT OF IT

I live in Los Angeles; I take the train from Universal City so I don't have the parking and traffic problems at Staples. I can stay until the final buzzer.

At some point, I would like to start a discussion about a team's responsibilities to fans and vice versa. Should fans stay loyal to a team like Milwaukee where you know a title run is hopeless? I think I will post this at the end of the season when the Clippers are vying for a Championship and "everybody" in L.A. suddenly becomes a Clippers fan. I think I have a good perspective as I "jumped" about eight months ago and have seen the argument from both sides. (As I have said, the Clippers fans on CTB have been very welcoming with great posts too!)

That being said, I wish all the long-distance Clippers fans could go to Staples at least once this year. This team should be something to see!

^^ Yeah, I'm with you man... Like many others, I joined CTB because I hardly knew anyone who cared about the Clips and this was my only way to have real discussions about them. Now it's great to see all the fans, new and old, from all over the globe..

I'm local. Short drive to the Metro train on Robertson/Venice that takes me right to Staples. Piece of cake. I've been attending Clipps games on and off since '86

I joined because I had been a fan for a couple of decades and thought only me, my wife and my sister were the only 3 fans in the world. Once at a Spurs game years ago seemed like we were the only 3 there and we made it up on the TV a lot because ,well were were out numbered. No radio station, no TV coverage daily, and barely any newspaper coverage, I found CTB as a great source of info and a place to share,where I found there were more then 3 of us,perhaps there are 3K of us now.

I never realized we were so global,although I expect Aussie ,for some reason they like the CLips and Dodger baseball a lot. We have a lot of Aussie fans on my Dodger board too. they just know quality.

I live in Downey,about 17 miles (or 45 minutes on average) from Staples.

PS: I do have a friend living in Nebraska that I hooked on the Clips but I don't know if that counts as she is not a member here.

Yea I'm from Alabama also. Sometimes it is a drag waiting until 9:30 for our game ever night and it ending at 12. Then having to be up at 5:30. Sometimes I check the forum and wonder why it isn't active then remember its like a 2 hour time difference. But I love it too. Makes things exciting.

But being from Alabama we don't have anything close to our own team (unless u count college football). So we more than likely find a superstar and latch on to him. Or just be like the majority here and hop from bandwagon to bandwagon which is extremely annoying.

Well she is older as I am but unlike myself she is techno-impaired. LAst summer she was out here visiting us and she needed to log onto her email and wasn't sure how do it on my computer and when I logged on for her I discovered she has never deleted an email because she saw no point in it. She is THE MOST sports oriented woman I have ever met in my life too (driving to Kansas today just to see her Yankees) ,she would be good here but it is beyond her capabilities. I think in Nebraska their computers are steam powered.

I'm in the la area too. been a fan since mid-late 90's, right around the time Odom was drafted. As a female, through the years I've had to listen to all of my guy friends talking mess about me being a Clippers fan lol. I try to make about one game a month, more if it's in my budget.

Reside in Los Angeles (Crenshaw/Leimert Park neighborhood), about a couple miles west of the L.A. Sports Arena/Exposition Park. Although I pretty much grew up here in L.A., I was born in northern Illinois, about 90 miles northwest of Chicago (and roughly the distance southwest of Milwaukee), and our family moved here permanently in 1988. I really started following the NBA closely when I became a Clipper fan in '92; I knew of all of the great teams and players growing up in my formative years, but I paid more attention to baseball and football back then.

I was born & raised in south LA very close to Normandie & Manchester. Where you can get the best in chicken in the hood Louisiana Fried Chicken. I moved very close to N. Long Beach in 2002. Smile

I agree with you about that Louisiana Chicken location...pretty damn good chicken, probably the best I've had, outside of the fried chicken I usually buy from either Ralphs or Albertsons. Every Time my wife and I drive by there, there's almost always a line halfway around the building. Also, my wife grew up not too far from there, and my family lived in the area briefly back around 1990.

I moved a lot growing up, and even as an adult, but I pretty much also always lived either close to the Sports Arena or the Forum in Inglewood. I haven't been inside the Forum in years, but from what I can tell, MSG did a really nice job fixing the place up...I'm still curious through about what eventually they're going to do with the Hollywood Park property.

3.30am here in England so probably an hour difference in the Netherlands. Not a very practical time Sad

We are two massive clipper fans from Cairns in Northern Australia. We come over every year at the beginning of April to see at least 3 games including the regular LAC Lakers game.

We watch every game on NBA.tv over here. This off season ticks me off. so bored without any NBA! Smile

None that are big enough fans to come on here....more like fair weather fans. except maybe my daughter, but between full time school, and 2 part time jobs (1 of which might go full-time), she wouldn't have time to come on like I do.

I know this was for out of state people but I'm loving this string and these posts and wanted to show love for my fellow Clipper Fans across the world. LET'S DO THIS!!!

PROUD CLIPPER FAN SINCE 1992. Its been PAINFUL at times but I know there are some who have suffered longer than me...

I've never been so amped up as a Clipper Fan as I am now. I LOVE OUR TEAM, COACH, and NEW OWNER. I WAS AT THE RALLY With my 2 year old daughter who was trippin out and SCREAMING MY HEAD OFF. Shawshank Redemption is my all time favorite movie and it felt like the end of the movie with Tim Robbins crawls through all the sh*t to be free and he yells out a loud scream signifying he was finally FREE.

Glendale, CA. 20 min. drive to Staples Center. I've been to over 100 games since 1992 and have sat everywhere. From the LAST Row up top in the 300s to the 2nd row to to Luxury boxes. (I've never sat in the first row though). Not a baller and I work hard but I go whenever I can and I've been to every Playoff game since 2006. I've also taken my wife, son, and daughter over 10 times.

I'M SO AMPED FOR THIS YEAR. HARD CORE. OPTIMISM IS A FORCE MULTIPLIER. LET'S BE OPTIMISTIC and SUPPORT OUR TEAM and HAVE FUN. This season will be a ROLLERCOASTER. LET'S DO THIS!!!!
