This saturday I was at a bar having a drink with a few friends and footage of ron artest throwing a punch at a fan was being aired on T.V. I immediately said "I liked Ron Artest before he became a Laker. He was actually a true warrior back then before he sold out." My friends immediately reacted and I pointed out that i was a Clipper fan. Without missing a beat my friends commented and said "Donald Sterling doesn't give a **** about you why do you like the Clippers?"

It was a question worthy of a thread in itself but it made me think of all the interesting reactions I've gotten when I confessed I loved the Clippers, so here are my top five:

  1. You are watching a Clipper game? What a waste of electricity

  2. Are the Clippers even an NBA team anymore?

  3. Utter laughter

  4. Are you a sadist?

  5. You know we live in L.A. right? You can root for the Lakers

So what are your favorite reactions?

The reaction I get when I say I'm a Clipper fan 90% of the time is, "Why?"

I have to explain my east coast roots and how I was brought up a Celtic fan and after moving out here, I couldn't root for the Lakers, the dreaded Celtic rivals, so I adopted the Clippers... After which, they usually "You shoulda just stuck with the Celtics and bought the NBA package on DirectTV." To which, I usually say, "That wasn't available 25 years ago and now it's too late... I'm going to see this through, like playing poker and calling to the river when you have pocket 9's and there's an Ace and King on the board. You know you're not getting paid, but you just gotta see."

Generally now, I keep my mouth shut.

Definitely get that reaction. Most people say, "oh sorry to hear that" as if i just told them my dad had died. Or the classic #2 response from above "clippers are still a team?"

Whenever I admit to being a Clip fan, I usually get:" That's a sick joke." And they usually say it with an angry face.

The Clippers they are a waste of space they will do $hit or be anything in this league they are trash. The irony of this is the guy is a Raiders fan and I'm a Eagles fan so when the conversation turns NFL I flip the speech.

Laker fans were more entertaining during the 04-05 and 05-06 seasons when the "battle for LA" was pretty much even and the Clippers finished both years with a better record. They weren''t much to brag about for Clipper fans but finishing three games ahead of the Lakers (albeit both teams had losing records) and two games ahead and advancing in the playoffs were enough for those two years.

It wasn't like Clipper fans were finally getting what the Lakers had always had in the past (championships), but the Laker fans' insecurity level skyrocketed during those two years especially in 05-06. They would brag like "THIS IS STILL A LAKER TOWN. LOOK AT ALL OUR BANNERS!" Whenever I heard Laker fans say all of that, I just couldn't stop laughing at them. We as Clipper fans had no arguments about all the stuff they bragged about but Laker fans feeling threatened and insecure because of the Lakers and the Clippers being pretty even felt great. A lot of them would accuse me of jumping on the "Clipper bandwagon." I mean, Laker fans should be the last people to tell you about jumping on bandwagons.

"THIS IS STILL A LAKER TOWN BLAH BLAH BLAH." Relax, no one is disagreeing with that. Talking trash to Laker fans during those days was like taking a candy away from a little kid. Good times. I can't wait for Kobe to retire.
