Hello everyone,

My name is Anand and I've been lurking around the forums for almost two years now and finally joined up. A little about myself..

I started rooting for the Clippers when they drafted Eric Gordon. I loved watching him in play in college and when I was going to Clippers games (because tickets were cheap), he was fun to watch. Going to games constantly, I learned the team players and enjoyed watching them play, win or lose. It wasn't long after the Clippers drafted Blake and we all know what happened from there.

Anyways, I like using Twitter and it's pretty fun during the games but unfortunately I don't have many Clippers fans followers or people that I'm following who are fans. My timeline is flooded with my friends who are all Lakers fan.

So if you have a Twitter account, post it here or follow me @InfiniteRaiders. I'll follow back.

Glad to be a part of the community and looking forward to the rest of a successful Clippers season.

I was at the game yesterday (3/3 Clippers vs Thunder). The loss still stings but it was a lot of fun, especially the rally at the end.

I grew up a Bulls fan. Watching Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen in the playoffs was sort of like a tradition with my family.

I can't remember when I first started watching the Clippers, but I definitely became an actual fan with Elton Brand, Lamar Odom, Darius Miles, Quentin Richardson, and Corey Maggette.

I was always alone rooting for the Clippers, everybody around me here in San Diego are Laker fans. So it'll be interesting to actually discuss Clippers with other Clippers fans.

Welcome! I was a bulls fan cause of Jordan in the 90s also, then started liking the clippers in the late 90s, early 2000s. There are hardly any clipper fans from the old San Diego team?

I didn't live in San Diego til I was like 8 or 9 years old, so I missed some of that World B. Free and some Walton action.

Welcome! I think I'm a freak on this website because I started at as a Payton/Kemp/Shrempf Sonics "fan". Never a diehard like I am a Clippers fan but that was the first team I loved watching in about 96-98 as a kid. In about 99 I became a diehard Clips fan.

I don't follow boxing much anymore, but I used to box a little bit in Jr high to high school.

Yeah the Lakers fans in SD don't surprise me since they have been a great team for a while, but I don't like the constant negativity that most of them bring... but that's another topic for another day. I'm just happy to be among Clippers fans. My eyes light up whenever I find one.

Glad to hear you're a Clippers fan. We need to increase our fan base! That's how it is in Hawaii. I see a few Clippers fans here and there but majority are Lakers fans, then Heat, Bulls, Celtics, probably in that order.

That explains your name.

You don't get many Clipper fans in England but then again you don't get many NBA fans at all. It's all football over here (soccer).

Hey all ! As my username suggests, I like both the Lakers and Clippers. Why? because they are both from LA and I love all my LA teams. I'm honestly more of a Lakers fan as I watched them since 2000 because of my family but still would root for Clips. I was wondering why Lakers fans and Clippers fan can't get along for when we share the same city. I actually want to hear what you guys think about it.

I'm from Jersey and grew up liking both the Giants AND the Jets as well as the Mets AND the Yankees (who don't worry I loathe now like a good American). I was definitely in the minority but that being said... Those teams share the same city and some even the same stadium (hell the poor Jets had to play in Giants Stadium) but not the same division! And therein lies the (ahem) division. For example I loved the Nets and Devils but DESPISED the Knicks and Rangers. So the Clips and the Flakes are in a truly unique situation. Yes the Nets moved into the City but different building different borough. I have met people like you though friend and they love our basketball teams and the Dodgers and Kings. Something to be said for loving your city and their squads. But being an old school Nets and Devils fan they lived in the shadow of the Knicks and Rangers for so long that its hard not to love them that much more. Anybody who loves the Clips is doing something right but come on man... The Lakers? They're more a Minneapolis team to me Wink

ill add to xldicelx's response: 3) they look down on us 4) they talk too much s***, like if they themselves have played on the lakers title winning teams 5) a very strong sense of entitlement 6) they talk too much s*** lol.

Nothing against you personally but here's why

No Clipper Nation would ever go to an LAL/SAS game and wear a Griffin jersey. Some LAL "fans" still wear #8. They are too cheap to buy #24 or don't know he changed.A huge percentage only know Kobe and can't name the rest of the squad. Any Clipper Nation can tell you most of the squad for the last five years. I was at a LAC/??? game and some a*shole was wearing a Kobe jersey and looked at me and said "Go Lakers" I laughed in his face. He probably didn't know LAL was tanking. Clipper fans would never do that. No Clipper Nation would ever boo LAL on their own court. I've never seen any other team's fans do that. It's rude and disrespectful.

LAL had to hire security on two sepatate occasions to keep the fat bald headed cholos from burning peoples' cars. The closest Clipper Nation comes to that is buying the bacon hotdogs. Boston fans are a bit much but LAL fans take it to another universe

None understand that going to the LAL was D12's punishment per D12. They don't undersatnd why as a necessary business move CP3 couldn't ever go to LAL. They also don't understand that there can be only one bulldog in the yard and CP3 won't kiss Kobe's shorts. He would not re sign

They believe LAL will continue to be great even though a reasonable logical analysis shows that they are excreta for 3 - 5 years. Kobe has ?? one year?? left and his $$ is 30 mil. Pau is $20 mil. Their present payroll is WAY WAY over the cap. They have no good draft picks. What will they do? Sign Elgin Baylor and buy him a decent toupee?. Kobe, Pau, Nash and probably Metta are gone in two years. They believe D12 will sign with LAL. He'd have to be sharing the pipe with Ricky Davis. Houston??

My LAL "fans" at work are rude and dismissive. They will never say that we're OK. We're still booger eaters. Strangely enough I've told them LAL should make the PO's and with luck #6. They laugh at me. Kobe is a jackass but a warrior. I've said he can will his team to the PO's and they laugh. I have more faith in LAL than they do.

Nothing personal but that's why

^ Heard my laker-"fan" neighbor talking obnoxiously loud on his cellphone during last year's playoffs...

"We should hang out, dude...watch the laker game at a bar? ...of COURSE, man... I'm a HUUUUUUUUUUGE laker fan!!! ...when are they playing next?"

What kind of "huuuuuuge" fan doesn't know when his team's next playoff game is?

Just shook my head and laughed at him.

Agreed.

Everytime another team does well or their lakers get criticized they get defensive saying, "our team is still better. Look at all those banners." I just hate it when they bring history up. We all know their history and we're talking about the present. They are also very disrespectful to a lot of the other good teams, but especially to us when we have any success. There's too many of those types of laker fans out there.

To the rational, fair, civil laker fans out there, I have no problems with them and I have respect for them.

So lakes and clips, even though its odd for someone to like both, I have no problem with that. As long as you're not like many of the other irrational laker fans out there, you're good.

Symbolically the Lakers represent everything that I hate about Hollywood. The phony, pretentious, ponytail gold chain wearing producers that I deal with everyday.

The lip injected, implant, look at me personalities in the stands.

I agree with this one,,but I want to add the idiots that wear their Laker jersey to a game in my house irritate me. Kobe isn't here, you ain't gonna see him. He doesn't live at Staples center.

generally speaking,most Clip fans know more about the NBA than Laker fans.we have been through all the suffering so we learn about the draft,salary cap,and other details while Laker fans just think they can get whoever they want,whenever they want.they are like the spoiled rich kid who never had to work for anything so they think that's how the world works.with the new CBA rules,that will change.talking to my Laker fan buddies,it seems they don't even realize there has been a change.all they say is "we wil just pay Lebron the most money because of the TWC deal".we Clipper fans are more humble.as we should be.we haven't won anything yet.Laker fans don't want to admit that even for a few years,the Clippers may actually be the better team.

I will go out and say I am nothing like those Lakers fans. Truth is that I actually do hate fake Lakers fans for making real Lakers fan look stupid. Can't stand them as they are mostly the reason for all the hate on the Lakers.

If Shaq and Kobe hadn't been such spoiled babies they could have had the greatest dynasty ever. Welcome to LAL

We don't expect any LAL fan to say that we're better than they are. Just admit we're good and stop the insults.

Example that DTS is cheap.

As somebody who posts on a lot of general forums you guys would be surprised how many Lakers fans want us to do well. The loud, obnoxious Lakers people aren't true fans but Kobe bandwagoners and just ignorant bullies. Like the cholos you see on our post game shows chanting "Clippers suck". The more knowledgeable, legit Lakers fans I've talked to either root for us as a 2nd team or at the very least don't mind us doing well. Problem is Kobe stans and bandwagon Lakers fans are the loud ones that stand out and cause the most drama.

Yes, that is very surprising to hear that many Lakers fans want us to do well. I was reading a lot of posts of the Lakers Ground Forums and seems like majority hates us.

But I can believe the knowledgeable legit Laker fans showing us respect.

Been following L.A. basketball since Lakers began playing in Sports Arena about 1960. Celtics always ripped my heart out.

Started seriously following Clippers when I saw a legitimate up and coming team 3 yrs. ago. As they've continued to make progress, my interest in the Lakers has seriously declined. Lakers have turned into a farce. Clips are still a couple years away,

and need to resolve the ridiculous confusion with their 5 spot and overall coaching. Lakers imploded by allowing their new center

to play at the beginning of the season instead of healing and thinking a 38 yr. old, oft injured guard would actually be an asset.

As far as my Bruins are concerned, the college game was totally ruined by the NBA. The fact that a tiny number of kids

could make NBA squads at 19/20 yrs of age does not outweigh the destruction of of college basketball.

Does the word "narscissistic (sp) come to mind? The guy sitting next me is an LAL fan and is OK. We gave each other props including and I believe this: if LAL were healthy and non dysfunctional they would stand a good chance of beating miami. (It was only a little lie lol )

Anyway he still can't understand why "Stern" vetoed the CP3 to LAL "deal". Even when I explained that Pau for CP3 would have made NO unsaleable and the Clippers trade made good business sense he still insisted it was a done deal. He said MDSr had nothing to do with the deal. According to him LAL got hit in the, shall we say, Stern. Why would Stern the Boogey man cancel the deal? He hates the poor little Lakers and wants to bu*ger them the first chance he gets.

FOR THE HUNDRETH TIME YOU FOOLS -BECAUSE HE OWNED THE F*CKING HORNETS AND HE WANTED TO GET RID OF THEM Who would want a $20mill Gasol? LAL fans think LAL is so great that anybody would want their most ridiculously overpaid and underperforming player just because one of their uniforms caressed his culo (sp)..

btw Narcissus fell in love with his own reflection in the river. So in love that he tried to kiss it. He fell in and drowned

Because most Laker fans, by most, I mean THE MAJORITY, are Obnoxious, Arrogant Fans.

If you're rooting for the Clippers now, just admit, you're a BANDWAGON Clipper fan. If you can admit that you're a Bandwagon fan, then hop on board. The wagon is big enough for all of you. For those of us who have been loyal fans through DECADES of losing seasons, we understand why we can't stand FAKER Fans.

Umm.. sorry but I'm not a bandwagon fan? I started to root for the Clips when Brand was part of the team. I liked his game. Honestly though, its not fair to judge most Lakers fans as how you say obnoxious and arrogant. I understand where your coming from but thats not cool to just call me a bandwagon. Sounds very rude of you to say that without even personally knowing me.

LakesandClips, you going to the game on Sunday? You should support the Clippers since Lakers have too many fans already and it is a "home" game for the Clippers.
