Well, this is about the only thread I can post on or even see for some reason, but since I'm also a Laker fan who also really likes the Clippers, I'll just add my 2 cents in here. Lakers sun seems to be setting for awhile and the Clippers are definitely on the rise. I grew up rooting for some really bad sports teams so I've always loved following the losers as they climb out of the bottom, and the Clippers have sure been doing that and fun to watch to boot. I'm not turning my back on the Lakers though just because they are on the verge of totally sucking for a bit here (time to build some character, but hopefully only in small doses). Anyway, I look forward to watching both teams this year and I'm really hoping for big progress from Blake and DJ up front (I don't give up easily, DJ, so don't let me down). Been lurking for a long time and even posting on and off the last year or two when the mood struck, but let me thank you all also for great reading from people who really care about this team.

Where I live, the Laker fan on a Clips board would have been tracked on his IP and beaten up, but yet again I live in Eastern Europe!

^^interesting how you like both teams. I don't have a problem with it and that's good that we have another person cheering for our Clippers. I only have problems with irrational, cocky, laker fans and kobe fans who put down and disrespect our team for no good reason. Unfortunately, there are quite a lot of them. You seem reasonable though.

Like your honesty. I have no problem with anything you've said. Hope others here don't use their internet bravado to use it against you.

to the OP,

Clippers have bigger fish to fry than to "own" LA. WCF and NBA Champs are our only goals. But welcome!

I have a problem. Everyone has the right to be on CTB as long as they are respectful BUT

If I were to walk into your house and say "I dislike your mother but I want to sit on your sofa and talk to you about your family anyway" you would be upset. If you dislike us why be here? I dislike a lot of people but I keep it to myself.

Analogy. During the Revolutionary War right after we start to win a British soldier walks into Washington's camp and tells Washington that he's not a winner he doesn't like him and tells him how to run his army.

Apology?

I don't care what Kobe has said, this is a rivalry. Any of my die hard LAL fan friends would rather lose to Dorsey High than the LAC and the reverse is true. They refuse to give us any respect at all. WE do run LA and we will for at least 3-4 years, even more if Kobe continues to play. Why do I say this? Simple "Bragging Rights" This is not directed at you but to quote Monty Python "I fart in their general direction" The Celtics have rings and so do the Bulls but they aren't as insulting as LAL fans. We do run LA

I have not the least interest what Lakers Fans' opinions are and I don't want them here. " Hi I'm a LAL fan but I love the Clipps. We'll see who runs LA bro"

That's OK A little jab or barb every now and then is OK

It sounds like you are on the young side so you get some slack. If you post as an individual that's fine. If so Welcome Aboard

Dude aren't you one of the biggest posters over there? I never used to read that board but since there's been constant heartbreak, it's been almost as fun as CTB for the past year. (I'd recommend suicide watch for Katie by the way)

So I didn't read all this. Are you literally asking for acceptance into Clipper fandom lol??

To quote "I dislike the Clippers"

I don't care why you dislike us. I do take offense. If you dislike us why are you here?

"Bob I dislike your mother because she thinks she's better than mine but everybody knows mine is better. Bob can I sit in your living room and talk?" The analogy is perfect. It's called rude

I won't accept someone who says they dislike me. I would never go on a LAL board or any other board and tell them I dislike them. It's called bad manners. You should have kept your dislikes to yourself.

"Who rules LA" shouldn't have even been brought up. If you know anything about Clipper Nation you should know this is a sore point and the Lakers have been rubbing it our faces. It shouldn't have been said. I would never go onto a Lakers of any other site and talk about how we rule.

This thread is unnecessary and childish. All you had to do was post and not talk about your affiliation and use a different handle. That one is antagonistic.

There have been lots of LAL guys who were cool. Also they never said they disliked us.

LAL/LAC , or Purple&Gold/Red,White&Blue. That's better.

My feeling is that we are owed an apology of go to a Lakers board.

Been a CTB member for awhile.. And don't dislike the Clippers.. We actually got a lot of Clip fans in LTB that are respectful like Clips2012.. Don't bash me guys on my Laker avatar cuz I know u guys/gals will like it ha. I own Dish network and don't have access to TWC.. So might as well join u guys in the Clippers game threads during games.. But man Sterling is showing Jim up on who's boss...Laker for like... Clips are super exciting esp this year even more with Doc

Thanks being respectful during your time here. All Laker fans are welcome here provided they show respect, which you have. We do have a heated rivalry, but i look at it this way acknowledge your rival. The Lakers have a very glorious history and they should be proud of that, but i think its safe to say the Clippers time is finally here. I try and look at it this way don't be so focused on the misfortune of others simply take joy in when successs comes your way. I lurk many of the Lakers sites from time to time, and there are some Lakers fans that are very respectful and give us our congrats and well wishes. I like the ones that have managed to find their way here, and i can assure you the door will always be open for you here.

perhaps he didn't start off his post in the most appropriate way, but he has been courteous since he is been here. I'm sure purple N Gold's intentions here are sincere. Give him a pass, he has been keeeping it clean and friendly.

Your avatar or should I say "Avatars" are welcome. As a matter of fact I'd love to bash those two Avatars. You are cool. There is something called rudeness and bad manners and disrespect. I still believe the "I dislike you" comment deserves an apology. As a general rule no CTB member would ever say that to another member. Also there's a difference between Laker Fans and basketball fans who love the Lakers. I'd pull for LAL over Miami any day.

"I'm sorry" gets a pass.

people are too nice here. i'll spare you the pat on the back and the "you're one of the good ones" comment. this isn't a charity we're running here, its a clipper board.

if you're a laker fan, your perspective isn't welcome (at least in my book). post away, but don't expect common courtesy or any acknowledgement.

and yes, we own this town now. (to those that think this sentiment is echoing laker obnoxiousness, WRONG. we've been treated like 2nd class citizens in our own city for 20+ years. I'm not ready to start being all kumbaya with those guys just because the going got tough for them.

Ya Katie can get a bit crazy at times lol. I honestly just created the thread to show that I'm not a troll and once in a while I like talking about the clippers and their pieces. Since they're not my favorite team, I don't talk about them as much, as you can see judging by my post amount.

Ya sorry, you guys are right. I shouldn't have stated in my post that I "dislike the clippers". I can see how that still offends you guys. Hopefully from my time here you guys just see me as a normal poster and a non arrogant laker fan lol.

You dislike the Clippers? CHECK!

You log on to a Clippers forum full of Clipper fans, and say Lakers still run LA? CHECK!

Wait, why are you here?

Ginger or not, it's all the same.

Black or white, brown or red

We shouldn't kill each other cause that is lame.

Repped High Quality Post

Welcome to the board, Snake!

CJ, judging by his name I'm going to guess you're referring to "Escape from New York"
