I have been a member of Lakers TopBuzz for many years. This is my first post here.

No, I am not deserting the Lakers. I am a Lakers fan for life -- barring complete and total idiocy by Jim Buss that makes the team unwatchable. (Which is possible, should he just want to pocket the TWC loot.)

I will not troll here or "spy" for the Lakers; simply put, I am looking for some positive news, fun and excitement -- and I am sick of Lakers Topbuzz headlines like "Lakers Interested in Lou Amundson." No diss on Lou, but this is not the Lakers team I have known since the 80's. Nor would my Lakers take Clippers castoffs like Caveman and call it a "great acquisition." Gimme a break!

I will probably not post much here and will always identify myself as a Lakers fan. Hope I don't get too much spit for this. But I will be objective. CP3 to Blake is one hellova play. And hoops fans, in the end, just want to have fun. And the Clips, truth be told, are fun to watch!

Sadly, from my perspective, the Clippers are doing everything right and Jim Buss (hiding behind Mitch, Jeannie and his late father) is doing EVERYTHING wrong.

I might be many things; a masochist is not one of them. I enjoy exciting baskbetball; I do not enjoy watching my team -- whomever that might be -- begging a player to stay via billboards. Pathetic is pathetic, no matter what team does it.

I intend to have fun, both watching and betting on games. (Small amounts, just for fun.) And if that means watching the Clippers rather than the "Old Man River" Lakers team, so be it. Call me names from both sides. I have my big boy pants on!

Go Lakers! Go Clippers!

Welcome Baadmaster. I have to say whenever people are honest and straighforward you get a better reception. its always good to have other fans here.in the past we've had a lot of visitors from the Memphis fan base, for the most part they were really well behaved and were just here to talk basketball. you strike me as a very knowledgeable fan and judging from your post you shouldn't have any problems here. good to have you on board

BTW, I will be watching a lot of the Lakers games this season. You guys picked up Chris Kaman and Nick Young, so I will be watching to catch a glimpse of these two and to see if Wesley Johnson can resurrect his career with the Lakers.

I just joined this site yesterday. I've been a Clippers fan since Odom was drafted. I've gotten a lot of flack over the years from guy friends for being a fan, but a real fan is a fan win or lose! Now my daughter is a die hard fan too!

Congrats. I brainwashed all my stepchildren as well. They are now proud hecklers of anyone wearing purple and yellow (thats right people it is yellow, not gold), my apologies to LSU fans. If you see a little white girl with blonde hair and blue eyes booing you it is intended for the "other" team, not the Tigers Very Happy

Welcome, Joey! '05-06 was when my fandom shot to new heights with that magical playoff run. Still the best team we've ever had. Hopefully this year's squad can surpass that!

this is my whole problem i think when we have a lead we need to slow the game rely on defense and give blake a chance to make post plays shooting jumpers are good but in the playoffs that will not work (gs warriors) we need to establish blake as a post threat to open up easy high percentage baskets for our other players

Recently moved to LA, been a fan of the Clippers since the Darius, QRich, and Lamar days, now I can finally attend their games (which I actually did earlier this year). Been reading this forum for a bit, finally decided to join.

Welcome jackfrost.

Hey Ewan.

As you can see from the Union Jack I am too. I live in Bristol. I know what you mean about watching the games, I have had some pretty late nights recently watching live streams. The games in the East are a lot better as they start quite a bit earlier. Otherwise I download games and watch them a day or two after the fact.

Hey guys/girls

Just wanted to say first off I am a laker fan. Second, I'm not here to talk crap or start drama. I just wanted to say a few words. First of all, congrats for finally being championship caliber teams the last couple years, lol jk. But honestly, as a lakers fan, I just wanted to say that I know we aren't going anywhere this year. So with that being said, I wish the clippers organization and fans nothing but the best and I think u outta sign Andrew Bynum.. Hed be great back up center.. Just saying Wink

You guys also deserve a championship in the staples center as well. I mean I'm born raised in LA and I like the dodgers and the angels.. But I have never hated on the clippers, just thought they have always sucked lol. But looks like things are finally looking up for u guys and I really do wish u a ring this year.

A championship looked quite possible in the offseason when the Clippers dumped Butler and Billups and rejuvenated the wing positions with Redick and Dudley. OF course things don't always go as smothly as planned. Redick went down to injury and Dudley has been highly inconsistent.

Right now I think championship talk is premature. We are just worried about getting to full health and recouping from what we will lose in the standings during this time that Paul is out.

As for us always having "sucked" that is an unfortunate turn of events. The front office has always made very good moves in the past, some just didn't work out. Let me give you some examples: Baron Davis, and Marcus Camby were brought in a few years back. They had decent support with Kaman, Jordan, Novak, Randolph, Thornton, and others. yet that team finished 19-63. Sometimes you can assemble a good roster and injury will ruin the best laid plans. In fact, when the Clippers played the Lakers in that opening game of that year the Clippers were winning against the Lakers. Baron Davis went down in the first quarter of that game and it just seemed that it was a foreshadowing of Barons career with the Clippers.

The fact of the matter is that the Clippers made major moves in their past to become a solid team but not all moves pay off.

The problem is that in the NBA the Lakers had an extraordinary amount of luck in not suffering major injuries to their stars, until now that is. Finally last year you guys started to see how fortunate you were in the past that things didn't derail your season.

The Clippers haven't been one of the leagues premier franchises like Boston, Lakers, Spurs, or Chicago, but the idea that we sucked wasn't attributed to a buffoon owner who didn't put the right guys together. Injury was a huge part of it as well.

I posted a reply because I can't seem to put up a new welcome intro thread, don't know if this is correct...I've lived in Los Angeles for past 25 years now with family here. I've always rooted for Clippers because I'm from up north, and my nephews cannot understand how I can root for Clips vs LakersI had a season ticket with Clips back in 2000 3 rows from basket but couldn't renew, too expensive, but I'm online everyday looking for anything new on rumors, trade rumors on ClipsJust haven't joined any forums.
