Welcome ClipDunX! I'm sure you'll find all the clippers you want here, and new viewpoints always make things more interesting. You know, as I read your post I was struck by something that I thought was pretty cool. You mention your love of basketball, and how you enjoy watching games, especially the Clippers (natch), but that there are some teams that uh... don't rank so highly. You use the Knicks and the Grizz as examples. S'truth, we've all got those teams whose games we can take a flier on. But the nice thing....

Please log in to view the entire post.

Welcome aboard ClipDunX! ^^I agree with dwb- the NBA is dynamic and it's usually exciting to watch no matter what team's playing!

Very good points dwb. I agree with what you send. I was mainly using last years squads as examples (and yes our own squad did kinda stink). But I'm sure all these teams' fans are excited and hopeful for the upcoming season. The Knicks did get a high quality new coach after all that may be capable of turning things around over there(in due time at least). I'm just really excited to see if our own squad can get their gears in motion and if Dunleavy can adapt his coaching to the way our team may need to play.

What's up everyone. Wanted to say hello as I am a new face on this board. No recommendations here, just found the site trolling the internet. I'm an east coast boy currently likving in New York catching, what is for me, those late night games. I enjoy what I've read so far and look forward to getting down and dirty with everyone on the Clipp.

Till next time.

Hey, I'm MuteHaitian and I'm new to this forum. I joined because this seems like a really nice community.

I used to live in the San Francisco area, from where the GSW were, but I've always been a Clippers fan since I got into basketball (well i guess not too long ago haha just a couple of years). I guess this was around 04 where I picked up my first NBA Live (04) game for pc. First team that I played with was the LA Clippers since I never really heard about them on the news. Wow I fell in love. Haha anybody remember Kerry Kittles? Only player that I didn't really like.

Being from around the Bay Area, I watched Baron Davis play a lot. I can't say that I was a big "We Believe" fan, so after he joined LAC, I was obviously really excited. Now I'm a first year here at UCLA where I can watch Clippers games on TV every week on FS with Ralph Lawler Very Happy .

Oh and also, I went to my first Clippers game 2 weeks ago! Seeing as how I'm a broke college student, I could only afford the $5 promos for the 300 section, but I enjoyed that nonetheless. Crossing my fingers for a win tomorrow!

Repped High Quality Post

I would like to thank everyone for this site. I have been a long time Clipper fan, but being a native Angeleno, I was a dual fan with the Fakers up till the 2004 - 2005 season. We may have not made the playoffs and still had a losing record, but several things drew me to become an exclusive Clipper fan.

  1. I finally opened my eyes to see how many bandwagon Laker fans there were. This would be the first time that the Clippers would have a better record and instead of sticking with their team, they dropped them. I guess I was a bandwagon Laker fan for most of my life.

  2. Although the Clippers lost many close games, they were very exciting to watch, and gave us realistic hope for the upcoming season.

  3. The Lakers brought in a couple of bandwagon players, Malone and Payton to try to win another championship.

I have always rooted for the Clippers, but they were not my top team till that season. Win or lose, the Clippers have been the more exciting team in LA. I would prefer a hard fought 1 point loss than a 30 point blowout, and I have gotten that from the Clippers most of the time.

At the beginning, this season was an embarrassment. I couldn't help, but hide Clipper gear in shame after the thrashing we took from the Lakers. Clipper was not given any ammunition to fight back against the bandwagon Laker fans.

Since that time this season has gone south. Hopes for the playoffs are pretty much out the window, but I think we all got a blessing in disguise from the Z-Bo trade. Cat's life was saved and I am once again optimistic about the future of this team. Since the trade, the games have been hard fought and close. True, we have lost more than we have won, but same is true of 2004 - 2005.

Dunleavy may have made some big mistakes in the past, but is capable to lead this team back to glory. Tonight's game was hard fought and was really there for the taking. Z-Bo and B Davis are becoming a good tandem, Camby is a monster, Gordon is developing very well. Al still needs some work, but he is getting there, and we will soon get back a healthy Kaman and R Davis.

If we continue playing like we have since the trade, I predict a fun remainder to the 2008 - 2009 season, Clipper Nation will have another playoff run next season, and we'll have another batch of Clipper bandwagonners to fill up Staples Center.

I can not forget the 2005 - 2006 season, for once I did not have to beg for someone to go to a Clipper game with me. I know that next season the tides will turn because the fun has returned. It is 2004 - 2005 all over again.

B4 I am corrected. I know the Lakers brought Payton and Malone in 2003 - 2004, but I lost respect for them after that season which is why I paid more attention to the Clippers in 2004 - 2005

Welcome aboard. Us hardcore members are mostly people who've forgotten to take their meds and should be institutionalized. I want you to say 100 times "Yes Mistress, may I have another" That's what it takes to be a member of Clipper Nation (I've ALMOST had too much to drink.)

CTBNB...you story is real close to mine as far as letting go of LA's bangwagon NBA team and finally selling my soul to a team with real fans. Everything in LA just ticks me off about the Lakers, from the media coverage,just everything (like today the whining in the LA Times about how bad the 19-3 Lakers are,,,bunch of crybabies). I know there are some real Laker fans,,but they sit in the 300 sections. But seriously , almost everything you wrote is true about me. Last season was almost impossible to get people to go with me when my wife couldn't, but if our team continues as they did last night, watch our friends start showing up again.

WE ARE CLIPPER NATION !!!

(I used to sell some of my season tix on ebay and I had a store called ClipperNAtionTickets, but changed the name when the Clips decided to use Clipper Nation on gear. I was fraid of getting sued!).

Hey Clipper fans, as you can see, I am a Laker fan.

I also have an account at LTB and I am a Mod there.

Even though I am a Laker fan, I would still love to be apart of this wonderful TopBuzz Forum and hear your thoughts on your team.

Before some go off on me, lol, I would like to let you guys know that I am not a "Clipper hater". In fact, I like the fact that we have guys like Baron, Thornton, Zach Randolph, and ESPECIALLY Camby in LA!

Im happy to be apart of Clippers.Topbuzz!

Surprised

WELCOME man!! I'm all for fans of other teams coming here. It gives us new perspectives and I love it. BUT- I'm afraid you forgot to mention Eric Gordon up there.

You shoulda seen his ferocious dunk yesterday after he crossed Kevin Martin. Haha. I'll upload it if no one else does

By the way you wrote Razz... Is that your name? I'm thinking.. Is it short for Razmig? If so then obviously you're Armenian haha, I am too, and so are several other members here.

Hi everyone, I'm a Clippers fan and I write from a very, very far-away place.. Italy! I've always sympathized for the Clips, since I started watching NBA bball on TV a few years ago. It's hard to explain why I became a fan of this team.. maybe because they have always been the underdogs, the unlucky team not so considered by the general opinion. Anyway, the fact is, I became a fan and I never went back.

You have to know that in Italy no-one supports the Clips, the most of my friends support C's, Lakers or Bulls, so I feel very happy to be here and stay tuned with you, the Clipper Nation.. wow.

I had great expectations for this season, as we signed players such as Baron and Camby, but unfortunately things aren't going well. Anyway, I'm happy to see that the team is fighting and I'm sure we are far better than what our record says.

Looking forward to have some nice chats with you guys! wink

PS - Sorry if my English is not that good at times, I do the best I can Smile

A bordo benvenuto! Sono felice che siete un ventilatore dall'Italia. Non posso attendere per leggere che cosa pensate the Clippers in futuro. In ogni modo, il vostro inglese è perfetto!

  • had to clean it up a bit. I hope it was written correctly.

Here is what i said:

Welcome aboard! I am happy you are a fan from Italy. I am looking forward to read what you think of the Clippers. Your english is perfect.
