it hasn't been "forever," and haven't had a chance to watch too many games, and.... would like to share my observations to date:

love what EBled, Barnes and Turiaf bring to this team, and am glad Vinny finally got off the Hollins tip some.... think Green has been a pretty good (third string guard) addition, and that am appreciative that we have been doing pretty well injury wise.

also love what DJ brings and really think Vinny needs to play him more and give less burn to Lamar, who I still surmise is a conflict of interest situation w/Vinny, as he was likely the point man that decided to bring Odom to LA despite a fair number of us dissenters....

another guy that I think needs to be continued to be monitored is JCraw.... he has been brilliant, and.... he still gets on his high horse at the offensive end and neglects his teammates at times.... not so often, and.... enough that I think the coaching staff and vets need to keep an eye on him and let him know.... like Barnes is apparently willing to do.

another thing that I just don't understand are the isolation plays for Blake playing pick and roll w/Paul.... this team has touched upon greatness via their D, being very active on both ends of the court, and by keeping the ball moving.... sending three guys to one side of the court is not winning Clipper basketball, and personally am looking forward to when it ceases.

and regarding personnel, am overwhelmed w/the success of Sacks, Sterling, Vinny and whomever else (CP3) is to credit, and.... would definitely hold onto Bledsoe unless mgmt can pull another rabbit out of their proverbial hat, as it cannot be forgotten that our star player is still injury prone, and EBled's D is pretty much irreplaceable at this point.

we are a playoff team and hopefully a championship caliber team as well.... that requires defense, and definitely will never include guys like Korver, Reddick or fill in the blank of your fave offensive minded guy who can't play a lick of D.... it just won't play come playoff time.... we need rugged defenders and rebounders.... give DJ the burn and make sure JCrossover is playing at both ends of the court....

one other thing that I wanted to add, and that really bothers/worries me is the treatment Blake gets by the refs and apparently w/the consent of the league.... the (flagrant) foul by Sullinger could have easily resulted in a jammed heel or worse to his knee, and still the announcer (Kenny Smith?) had the nerve to suggest the foul shouldn't have even been called !! jerk....

against GState, same thing w/Festus Ezeli.... Blake left him like a turnstile and dude reaches out w/his wings as arms and tangles Blake up midair and Griff lands on the side of his head, and Mark (********) Jackson says that Blake was floppin' !! goodnite Irene !! that has got to stop, and the league and the refs are responsible, and.... Donald & Co. need to get (heavily) involved.... uncalled for, not to mention hazardous to not just Blake's and the Clippers health.... it's just not good (basketball) for the NBA.

and don't recall who in one of the more recent games where Blake went up, and the defender looked like he was gonna do his best to take Blake out of the play, and Griff reached out w/his free hand and got his clothesline in first, making sure he wouldn't be unnecessarily subjected to injury.... not a fan of an eye for an eye, and.... let's be real.... dude's career and physical well being is at stake....

worst play ever for an LA fan was when McHale clotheslined Rambis.... never to be forgiven in my book, and definitely don't want to see anything like that involving Blake....

Hey guys I'm a Lakers fan and check this website from time to time. Don't worry I'm not a troll i just like some of the topics you guys talk about and would be glad to join them if that's alright with you guys. I thought i would take a second to explain myself.

Well first, i am not one of those stupid laker fans who go on trade machine and put in Devin Ebanks and Steve Blake for a player like Andre Igoudala and expect it to be a fair trade. Those type of fans for any team, whether it is the lakers or clippers or heat, etc, just irritate me. Just thought you guys should know I wont be on this website saying stupid things. Now I wont lie and say that Im a clipper fan.

Quite honestly I dislike the clippers. I hope none of you take offense to this but the ONLY reason why i dont like the clippers is because the fans think that the clippers completely took over Los Angeles. I wont assume all of you do because i understand 1 of you doesnt speak for the rest of you but i am sure most of you feel this way.

Yes i understand that my dear Lakers are very pathetic this year and you guys are playing great but to say that you guys own Los Angeles now is pretty far fetched and im sure most of you can agree to this. One example of this would be that announcer saying that Eric Bledsoe is from the Lakers. When you say " The Los Angeles", Lakers is what you think of right after which is why it is hard to take over this town.

With that said, ive told many Laker fans on lakers top buzz that the clippers own los angeles THIS SEASON. Us lakers clearly didnt leave up to expectations, whether it being because of injuries, too many egos, wrong coaches, dumbass Jim Buss, etc, we didnt live up to it and you guys did which is why this is your town for this season.

Now I am not saying that this will be your town for only one season for the rest of the existance of the clippers franchise. Im just saying that just because the Lakers are awful this year doesnt mean the lakers will be a lottery team for the next 30 years, they always come back into the picture. What I am saying, i mean with the upmost respect so I hope no one thinks i am saying it in a hatred way.

I hope you guys accept me hear and recognize me as a decent laker fan. If it helps you guys, I can tell you whether or not some trades help you out or dont help you out. For example, that Kevin Garnett trade scares me as a Laker Fan lol.

Sorry again if most of that paragraph was me talking about me not liking the clippers and how I feel that Los Angeles will always be a Lakers Town but i just wanted to be honest and show you my feelings on the idea. Really looking forward to having some nice conversations with you guys:]

Welcome aboard, dude.

Nothing wrong with you hoping/believing/expecting that your team will be back... that's a fan. Can't say I agree as long as Jimbo's running the show and kobe's eating half your cap space, but you came with respect so you'll have mine.

All we can say about who "owns' L.A. is that the lakers WERE the better team (and for a long, long time) and the Clippers ARE the better team (right now, and likely for the rest of this year). As for who WILL be the better team in the future... well, that's why we watch... to see that story play out.

I just hope you've got a thick skin about your team. After years of enduring crap from less respectful laker fans than yourself, the combination of pride in what we're building here and the absolute disarray down the hall just makes it irresistible to take shots at them.

Let the sparring begin... ding, ding.

I completely understand. This is the time for Clipper Fans to enjoy. I personally am happy for you guys but like any other fan, I wouldnt want it to come at the cost of my team. Im just curious to see how far the Clippers can go.

Never was I going to bandwagon into becoming a clippers fan. If i was going to be a bandwagon, I wouldnt have said that I disliked the clippers in the original post. Its clear you dont like the lakers and Im fine with that. You can choose to like who/what you want. All im looking to do is have conversations on this forum with the rest of you guys.

It's not like Purple#Gold is whoofin' about player comparisons, banners, and NBA history. Just a basketball fan.....same as all of us. Let them enjoy the forum.

When we blow up like that on people it just makes us look very insecure and weak honestly. You don't need to like other fans but at the very least we should be able to avoid personal attacks and have a certain level of maturity and respect. Don't get me wrong... I expect a little doubt and even a short fuse with some Lakers fans here due to the trolls we've gotten etc.. but give everyone at least a chance or two first.

prayer First laker fan I've EVER heard say that. But that still doesn't mean you can put up a laker avatar or something and not get ripped Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_45

I'd suggest an Odom, Barnes or Turiaf one... at least they were all lakers for a while and you can blend in without feeling like a complete Judas wink

To be technical all introduction threads are better off in the introduction or off topic sections but we have allowed them for so long in the main section that it's a non issue for me. If another mod wants to move it so be it. If you're talking about "The moderator" as in David.. he's left many introduction threads in this section so not sure what issue you have. That doesn't change the fact that you obviously have yet to go over the forum rules and probably should based on what you posted.

"Get off our board. Get off our bandwagon. Where do you get off? This thread needs to immediately be tossed, what the flip does this have to do with Clippers Top Buzz??? Stay classy indeed and shut your Kobe canal Pao blamer."

If that's not a personal attack on another poster, I'm not sure what is. You have your own podcast and you have a reputation for going off a bit on things but this forum isn't like that. This isn't a war between the Lakers and the Clippers. This is a Clippers forum where as long as people are respectful, they are welcome.. no matter which team they are a fan of. I don't personally have any issue with you.. I'm just asking that you try to be a bit more respectful of all other posters (even Lakers fans).

Personal attacks? Was it calling him Gary's old town tavern you disliked or the Kobe canal stuff? Take a look at every subject on here and you'll notice one similarity: it's all about the Clippers. Not hey chums I hate your team cool if I dance with your dates? When the moderator wakes up tomorrow I promise you this is relocated somewhere other than where it is now. I've been to too many Clippers home games with too many Lakers fans to sing Kumbaya with every purple and golder who decides to be honest and open up in our safe haven. I'd rather read morons dissing Crawford and hollering to the hills about firing Vinny. E Bled threw down a perfect dunk. DJ tweeted he promises to compete next year. KG!? Too much to talk about for the hand holding hodgepodge

Well to be honest, at times there is a lot on this website referring to the lakers.

That's another reason not to enforce an anti Lakers agenda here. Too many guys seem to have this idea in their mind that it's a war between the Lakers and Clippers so they make a bunch of Lakers threads keeping them relevant here. Then when Lakers fans come here you get upset? Not logical.

Bottom line is... if the person is here and follows the rules, it doesn't matter. If they turn into a troll like they have many times, I'll ban them. They always get a fair shot from me though.

Actually I figured out why these don't get moved. I moved to "New member introduction" and that's still a subforum to the Clippers general forum. In other words.... this thread is exactly where it belongs.

Chris unfortunately I had to neg you for the forum records which is the protocol David gave us to follow. In other words it's an official board warning. I really don't think you're getting the message here and it's up to the mods to keep things peaceful. No reason I should be having to babysit other adults. If you don't like Lakers fans... put them all on ignore or don't talk to them, quite simple. If they start trolling or being disrespectful themselves I'll warn them twice, followed by a ban... per forum rules.

Repped High Quality Post

I honestly don't mind any fan of other teams joining this forum as long as they don't join just to troll.I like hearing other fans opinions anyways.I personally wouldn't join another teams forum but I do like talking about other teams and the NBA as a whole which is why I am also on Inside Hoops NBA forum.I was actually on there first and because of Clippersfan86 learned about this forum and joined.

I am not bothered by it and don't think other people should be,unless he starts trolling.I wouldn't mind discussing the Lakers with the Lakers fans but like he said,a lot of them are delusional and hang on to past achievements too much so there's no point.Anyways welcome to the forum.

Andrew I didn't realize you were somebody I introduced. What forum/place did we meet? Maybe Youtube? I love hearing other fans opinions as well which is why I think they add something if they don't troll. I usually read opposing fans forums after games because it's interesting to see a different POV.

I was looking for a fourm to talk about the Clippers and the NBA and found the Inside Hoops forum.I was on there for a little while and remember seeing your avatar of Bledsoe.I don't remember the conversation or where it took place but I think I asked you either in a thread or a message if you know of a good place to talk about the Clippers and you suggested I go here.Might have also been on the Clippers section of the Inside Hoops forum but I don't know for sure.

Just a neg? I'm all for Lakers fan bashing, but we gotta remember this is a game. Joking about someone's imminent death because you don't like that he owns a team better than yours is classless. There's no place for that here. Deserves a suspension IMO.

To the OP

I have no problem with you being on this forum but I don't really get why you would want to be? I come onto this forum to talk Clippers talk with Clippers fans. I can't imagine going onto other team's fans forums particularly the biggest rivals' one.

Again I reiterate you are most welcome as far as I am concerned I just don't get it.

I understand it may seem like I am up to something because I am a laker fan and you guys are clipper fans but I genuinely like the discussions on this forum. I feel like I can add to it from a lakers perspective whether its a trade that I see helping you guys, if it makes me nervous because I am a laker fan, etc. Plus, I don't always like talking about the lakers. For example, I'm excited for the trade deadline because I want to see what trades happen around the league, I have little interest in what trades the lakers make honestly.

Here is my opinion for what it is worth:

This thread is completely unnecessary and childish. First off, this is the internet, do what you want. You don't need to come to a forum and ask us if we are willing to accept a fan of another team, the fact that you ask as if there would be real world consequences from our disdain and hatred of all things lakers is absolutely absurd and immature. You know that there are people in Clipperland that hate the Lakers and their fans, so naturally someone got pissed, and there is no way in the world that you did not want that.

Secondly, there are millions of clippers fans out there, but there are probably only a few hundred consistant posters on this site, making us some of the most die hard and active fans, so the fact that you feel it necessary to come here "as a laker" completely takes away validity to being here in the first place. There are many basketball fans on here who root for other teams, but appreciate the team enough to where they aren't trolling.

So, I personally do not care that you are here, I appreciate all points of view when it comes to basketball. But I can also understand why you would piss people off by coming in here "as a laker".

Welcome Aboard!

Well first of all, I didn't make this thread asking if I can join this website because it is clear that anyone can join and you wouldn't know anything personal about that person besides what they post. I only labeled the thread what I did in reference to if you guys would accept me over time as a normal laker fan and not the ones you guys hate just like I like the clipper fans who are worth respecting.

Secondly, I'm not trying to piss off anyone by making a thread here. As for me joining and saying " As a laker", what else should I have said? I'm a laker fan. I didn't join this forum to talk trash about the clippers. For anyone to assume these things about me is pretty childish. They should atleast wait and see how I am overtime. If you feel bothered by a laker fan on this forum then that is fine by me but like I said, I'm not here to troll or to do any of that but if that still bothers some people, that's out of my control.
