Hey Clipper fans. My name is Greg. I am a student at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater. I am actually doing a project for a sports management class over the Clippers. I was hoping some of you die hards could help me with fans perspective. I need to get inside your fan base. For instance, what does it mean for you to be a Clipper fan, what kind of in game traditions are there, and who are the Clippers most hated rivals? Any help you could give me would be appreciated.

Cool project, i worked for a hoops agency for a while and its a great industry but tough so hopefully i can give you a little of the info you want.

-for me, being a clippers fan is about supporting a cause that you hope will one day win and be triumphant. The clippers are always under dogs and i think most Clippers fans are underdog fans at the very core of themselves. here is always hope that next year will b better and when things are bad it makes things that are decent that much better.

-I also like that the Clippers players have mostly been very down to earth and fan friendly.

-Most people are anti Clippers so i think another thing about many Clippers fan is that they like to swim upstream

  • in game traditions are to yell "Fire Sterling" and "Lakers Suck"

-Lakers are IMO the most hated rival. The constantly disrespect the Clippers and we are viewed as their pee-ons.

  • also Clipps tix are very reasonably priced and same with the memorabilia so its cheaper to follow the Clipps Wink

ill try to answer your questions.

  1. To me being a Clipper fan means to love your team regardless of the record. Never giving up on the team. Sticking with the team through the bad times and the good times. "Hope for the best-Expect the worst."

  2. when i go to Clippers games, i always find myself in a family like environment. Clippers Darrell is always there rooting for the team.

  3. I consider our rivals to be the L.A. Lakers, San Antonio Spurs, GS Warriors, and since i hate them the Boston Celtics.

Hope it helped
