Anybody going? I would but i refuse to pay the lakers to see my Clips...So I am going to go to the Yardhouse to watch it. My bro's and I are going to wear all of our clipper gear and annoy all the Faker fans. Who else is in? Let's make it a Clipper viewing!

Nice! I'm going to the San Antonio game in December I think it is...

Why does the NBA always have to put us against the Lakers the first game of every season? Wouldn't it be nice to just face the Kings or something so we can win and get our spirits up before facing the good teams?

yeah but if we can somehow pull off the win which i think we have a pretty good chance of doing, it will make it all the worthwhile. We will then have bragging rights til January when we face them again.

yeah seriously loosing to the lakers on opener will be a huuuuuuuge disappointment to our players. however, if we win, we might just get off to a 5-1 or 6-0 start. versing the lakers on opening night is a high risk, high reward thing for me. more risk than reward though, cause the chances we win aren't high. but damn if we win that game, it can change the ENTIRE season for us.

True, I think those first few losses we had at the beginning of the season screwed us over for the rest of it

yeah last season after the bad loss to fakers, they came out strong against the nuggs and blew a 16 point lead going into the fourth. i think after both of those heartbreakers the season was over.

I think this is a different team...if we just so happen to lose the first game, i don't see it as a big deal. And if it is, then this is the most weakminded team in the history of weakminded teams and should be disbanded immediately...So i think too much is being made of the first game. it would be a great start to the season, no doubt, but I don't see it derialing us in anyway. Its one friggin game!

Exactly. A loss to the defending champs won't be demoralizing unless it's by 38+ points(again).

While I don't think that should be any kind of factor as to the momentum we have after the game, I think it's kinda lame that we are hoping the season opener doesn't flush our spirits down. This isn't college football.

I'll let the players off losing this game if they make the playoffs!
