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.

I'm pretty sure there would be at least one home game on the eight days you'll be in LA unless they go on like a 5 game road trip right away.

You enter the forum bit with all the different categories of threads by clicking on this [Enter Los Angeles Clippers Forum] which is in blue at the bottom of the LAST FORUM POSTS. Then you choose your category, for example Clipper Rumors and there is a "new topic" box on the top left of that page.

Hello everyone, I'm a new member of Clippers Topbuzz's forum.

I'm french, 28 years old and I live in London UK, I'm a Clipper fan since Blake came in a few years ago.

I usually come to LA every summer to watch some playoff games at the Staples Center and I'm thinking about going in LA for 3month+ next year to watch more games from the regular season (maybe buy season tickets)

Is there any other french clipper fans?

I live in England so I've never even been near a Clippers ticket. Though there are plenty of guys on this forum who could probably help you out.

So I finally decided to post here 'decades' after lurking and leeching off the knowledge of some old-timers (no pun!) here =). I don't post on many forums as I'm somewhat of an old-school hermit despite my age. I honestly didn't know what I could offer you peeps here since there's a lot of knowledge from long time fans (80's & 90's where, arguably, the good competitive no BS basketball was played, but then I only started watching @ 98, a distant dream now).

BIO: I guess I'm one of the posters that always followed LA teams regardless of sport, as I've lived 95% of my (soon) 27 years in the city of LA. I started off watching both teams, but focused more on the fLakers until my appreciation of the sport grew. Now I've been a full pledged Clips fan - as in, the Clips went from my #2 to my #1 team after I got back from my 2 year NBA hiatus which coincided with the Clips drafting Flight32! Also, I can't even call the fLakers a #2 team anymore, but I have personal reasons for this mainly related to the monopoly that surrounds the team as opposed to the underdAWg Clips. Times a-changing though, and what water flowed in the Minneapolis Lakes, now flows from the eyes of LakeRs into the chalice of Clippers! laughing8

I'll let my posts further introduce as I've never been good with intros!

Feels good to finally (Officially?) be a part of this community!

PS. I wish there was a way to request a name change, as I never thought I'd post here but now that I do, I'd like to get a more suitable username. Random numbers/letters lack character IMO.
