Hello Clippers Top Buzz! After lurking on the site for awhile, I've decided to register and participate in the forum. I discovered this site while on Reddit (specifically modding the Clippers' subreddit) and took the time to check everything out. I'm also a member of Clips Nation and ClipperBlog.

Here's some backstory on how I became a fan: I first became aware of the franchise when Odom was drafted. I knew they were a bad team and the little brother to the Lakers. At the time, I was (and still am) a Bulls fan growing up in New York, and they had just finished their 1st losing season without the Jordan/Phil/Pippen triple threat. The Clippers drafted Tyson Chandler and traded him to the Bulls for Elton Brand. Being a kid, I was confused and disappointed that the Bulls traded him away. Because of this, I started taking interest in the Clips, specifically to follow Brand.

This was hard to do because I live in NY, where you didn't hear or see the teams that weren't popular, the Clippers being one of them. So, I checked the box score every night to follow up on Brand. There, I got to know the other players. When NBA Live came out every year, I played with the Clips and Bulls. As the years passed, I continued to follow the team through the paper, video games and the once in a blue moon TV telecast on cable or whenever they played the Knicks and Nets. It wasn't until the 2006 season during the playoff run that I got to enjoy the team's success. By this time I grew to like not just Brand, but Odom, Miles (both long gone but still had good feelings towards), Maggs, Mobley, Q-Rich and Kaman. I really liked Cassell when he was a Clip and I thought Livingston would develop into Magic Johnson. It was also at this time that I really delved into the history of the franchise.

When Odom left, it was a feeling of "Oh well, them the breaks." When Brand left it felt like a punch to the gut, but for some strange reason, I couldn't stay mad at him. Everyone else who I had grown to love had left and Baron had signed. Now I was able to follow the team more frequently. Being in the Clipper fandom for a while had made me conditioned to losing (Well, no more than my hometown teams). I follow teams that like the Clips, have more successful older counterparts. I grew to dislike the Lakers in the same way that I hated and despised the Yankees, football Giants and hockey Rangers (take a guess who I root for).

Fast forward a few years after that, and here we are. I hope to enjoy my time here on CTB.

tl:dr verison: The Brand trade made me a Clippers fan

I became a fan around the same time too. Despite of what happened, I'm still a fan of Elton Brand. Let's hope he returns to back Griffin up? How awesome would that be to win it all with EB???? Ok I'll slow down. Welcome!

Howdy,

I'm Don and I've been a clipper fan since 2003 and have been lurking CTB for 3 years enjoying my anonymity. Now, it's asking me to login in order to read some of the comments which i followed suit; registered and logged in.

Now that I've registered, it's asking me to share it on my twitter page or post 50 times in order to get into some of the threads. I'll be choosing the latter and will be posting stuff in the noob threads until my count reaches 50 lol.

This is the first of the 50

Stuff about me? Not much, I'm 24 working as an RN; volunteering around the world with the peace corps; a clipper fan Smile
