Watching the Lakers and their fans starting to realize that their team is starting their decline to mediocrity. Yes, they put on a really good face and the over-hyping of the team by the media keeps them in denial. Fact, they will be way over the cap next season and the tax increases to 150%, there's no way baby Buss will pay that. Kobe is clearly in the late autumn of his career, Pau is up there as well (can't see his game elevating). Bynum is the perfect formula for a team's cancer. Yes, he's had some good game without question, but does anyone honestly believe with his work ethic, overall attitude and immaturity that he's a cornerstone to build off of. I think he plays just well enough where the Lakers will decide to keep him and be saddled with him for a long while. He simply does not have the makeup to have the mental toughness for an entire season let alone a seven game series (see. last years playoffs). If they stay with this current team they will have no tradable assets and late round picks, not really a winning strategy.

The fans are absolutely funny to watch (ok, maybe borderline annoying, I think its in their DNA). They always ignore the facts and basic basketball knowledge and only hang on to the team because, they are the Lakers and they've got such great past history. It is impossible to argue with complete ignorance, so please fellow Clips fans don't try it. If you really want to understand the sadness that is Laker fan I would highly recommend doing a search on Twitter for "clippers". Weather, the Lakers or Clippers are playing doesn't matter there will be plenty of ignorant tweets. Its really hilarious how they have always called someone who doesn't like the Lakers "Oh, you're just a hater". The hypocrisy never ends, its really good stuff.

^ I think they'll be the last to accept their own decline, World. Their forums are a good indication that they still think that team's the sh*t.

Personally, I'm going to enjoy watching them overpay for Sessions this summer when he opts out and screw up their cap for another few years. If they don't match some ridiculous offer he gets, they'll be back to square 1 with no point-guard.

According to the 70 IQ of Laker fans, Clipper fans aren't really "Clipper fans," they're just Laker haters.

As for their team, as long as they have Kobe they will continue to be a winning team.

most laker fans are just bandwagon fans. they'll just hop on the the next hot thing, the the dodgers, clippers or the kings or la sparks. they will claim they were diehards since the beginning but know nothing about the teams when they were losing. they were big lakers fans in the 80's, bulls fans in the 90's and went back the lakers in the 2000's.

It's so funny how Lakers fan even are in denial that there are Clippers fan, how idiotic can you be? I've been a Clippers fan since 92, to say im just a Lakers hater. I mean for the last 10 years i can honestly say i do hate the Lakers with a Passion now, due to their ignorant fans. They think the world evolves around them. There is always going to be a handful of intellectual Lakers fan who you can actually have a debate with that knows what he is talking about and is respectful, but that is rare with all the dip$hit other fans that they have. They are pretty much in a deline, and this new CBA is going to really effect them. Jim buss doesn't look like he cares to much for winning as he is for making money. Therefore, Gasol may not be here next season, and Kobe can't play forever. They were banking on Dwight and hoping he would bring them a new star sensation, but Dwight doesn't want to go there, and Dwill isn't going there either.

Laker fans always say "Why don't they leave LA? They should move somewhere else." LOL. They always said that when we were losing. They even say it more now that we're winning. Insecure morons. Deal with it. You're sharing the city with us, mother****ers.

Laker fans think Ramon Sessions is a top 5 PG in the league. Talented as Sessions is ( 10-15ppg, 3-5 reb 4-8 ast 4FTM a game ) are pretty solid numbers but he's being evaluated by Laker fans as MVP not a solid starting PG.

BTW if anyone notices Sessions numbers are nearly identical to Mo Williams in every aspect outside of 3pters. Which according to Laker fans means we have two top 5 PGs on our team if were basing rankings off statistics.

Sessions is a good player, but not great, he's not even close to being a top 10 point guard.

Faker fans are just delusional.

here are a few point guards I'd take over sessions:

Rajon Rondo, Deron Williams, Derrick Rose, Chris Paul, Kyle Lowry, Ty Lawson, Gordan Dragic, Tony Parker, Jose Calderon, Brandon Jennings, Raymond Felton, Devin Harris, John Wall, Ricky Rubio, and etc...

He's going to opt out of his player-option and some desperate team will offer him somewhere in the 7-8 million range because he looked good playing alongside kobe and bynum.

Lakers will be forced to match or have to go looking again. Bwoohahahahahaaaa!!!

i would still leave dragic, harris and rubio there. dragic just needs a starting opportunity in this league. harris, while not the devin harris that was with the nets, is still better than sessions. rubio is a great passer and a damn good defender. . that alone makes him better than sessions, who cant guard his own shadow.sessions has barely developed an offensive game. give rubio 2 years, and his offense will be as good as sessions' offense. sessions has talent but hes not better than those 3.

The Lakers were in contention for Championships with Sedalle Threatt in the 90's? They had 1 run until the end of the 1990's when they got housed by the Bulls in 5 games.

Fact is the Lakers have a lot of upcoming problems they are going to have to deal with in terms of contracts. In the next 2-3 years every single person on their team I believe is going to need a new contract. Metta Wreck The World Peace can probably be re-signed for a cheap deal but Kobe is going to suck up 20-30 mill a year in cap room on your team. If the Lakers let him walk, Laker fans around the world will riot and murder Buss and his family.

Bynum is going to easily get a 12+ mill a year deal, anything less is an insult. Pau is either going to have to be traded or he's going to get to walk, then who do you have to play PF? Troy Murphy? Lakers are in serious trouble if they can't trade Bynum and or Gasol away for good talent and potentially lose some cap in the process. It's either that, or let Kobe walk.

this type of arrogance and sense of entitlement is why people despise flaker fans. oh wow, you know flaker history. BRAVO. im impressed. lol. be honest, out of 100 flaker fans, about 10 to 15 actually know their history. if you are one of them, congrats. anyway, you guys won a lot of your close games this season with questionable reffing. before you say anything, just remember this. your last ten wins, you guys shot 296 ft's. your opponents shot 154. and your last 10 wins were really close wins. so 15 more ft's in every one of those games influenced the result without a doubt. so to be honest, it is fair for anyone to assume you guys would end up as a lottery team, had it not been because of this. you guys always say "we dont look at the clips as rivals" yet your players such as kobe, fisher, barnes, methhead talked at nauseum about the rivalry they had with us. we may not have titles but the rivalry is there since the acquisition of cp3 by the clips.

yeah, since u are older. i am 25 but been a clips fan since i was 4. so like i mentioned before, if you indeed are the fan you say u are, kudos. the sad reality for your team is that at least 80 percent of their fans are bandwagon fans. and trust me, ive talked to a lot, and i mean alot of so called laker fans who cant even name who is on their roster outside of bynum, gasol and kobe. they still think fisher is on the squad and phil jackson is still the coach. regarding their decline, face it, once kobe is gone, who is going to replace him? gasol is also gettting up in age for a big man. that leaves you andrew bynum, who is as mature as a 12 year old hitting puberty. it will definately take the lakers a long time to reload. this might be the last realistic chance the lakers have to win a title. and looking at it, their chances look very slim.

lakerQ, you lost cred when you said mitch kupchak learned from west. yeah that is why most of his first rd picks in the draft never panned out. aside from bynum (after 6 years) what other moves has he made. gave up 2 first rd picks of this year's deep draft to get sessions and hill, two average players who werent worth the 1st rd pick, even if you got rid of fisher and walton. he acquired gasol under a lot of suspicious circumstaces aided by jerry west. so in reality, what moves has he made to make u say hes a good gm.

Kupchak is not a great gm he's an ok gm, his best move was not trading kobe when he demanded to be traded, and that lopsided trade everyone talks about with gasol, the grizz eventually got an all star in marc gasol. As far as picks it's not like he has had top 10 picks and drafted busts, bynum was a good selection. No one is better at drafting late first or second round picks than rc buford.

yeah vujacic and farmar were such good picks, that they traded vujacic and a 1st rd pick for joe smith. they let farmar walk. it took bynum 6 years to start to pan out. gasol was a product of jerry west pulling his strings in memphis. however, that trade is not that lopsided now when you consider that the grizzlies now have marc gasol. just cuz portland wants to interview kupchak doesnt mean anything. he might be available, as will other GM's.

I don't feel sorry for a Lakers fan, but it's amazing how they can hate on Clippers when their team is made up of guys who:

  1. Was in a controversial sexual assault case and whose wife is filing for divorce for infidelity

  2. Is mentally unstable, and been through several physical altercations and suspensions

  3. Is like a big kid, runs through LA traffic, parks in handicap spaces and "makes it rain" at clubs. ha!

  4. Gets in fights at summer league games

  5. Chokes out his girlfriend.

I know most of this has nothing to do w/ what happens on the court, but seriously, Lakers fans... take a look in the mirror for a bit before being condescending towards other teams' players.

I'm not understanding why someone would actually feel sorry for Lakers fans? That's like feeling sorry for a billionaire who has lost a lot of money on bad investments and is only a millionaire. We're going to be alright. We've won a lot of championships.

As far as the fans are concerned, oh yes we have some fans that make me irate, they know nothing of the game, but apparently buy a player's jersey and feel they're knowledgeable.

Clippers fans are different. You guys are quite bitter for some reason, just spewing a lot of mean-spirited words towards us Lakers fans. Look I know you guys are happy that Chris Paul is in town, but what's the difference between Chris in New Orleans and Chris in LA? Blake Griffin is a highlight machine, but he is just doing a David West impersonation, it won't be enough to stop OKC getting to the championship game. Griffin needs to really overhaul his game, you guys need a player you can just throw the ball into the post and let him work. Instead he wants to be some sort of fake thug on the court and then starts crying because guys are fouling him hard.

funny post lakergem. i mean calling griffin a wannabe thug. last i checked, those types of players reside in flaker land. examples: bynum, methhead, hill, barnes and kobe, the latter 4 beating, choking, raping women. lmao. and the only ones who cry are flaker fans who often times bitch and moan like p*****s when someone breathes on kobe, such as the time they were calling raja bell a "butcher" for standing up to kobe. lol. its also funny how you claim we are bitter, when you guys are the ones who are hating on the clips because when kobe is done, griffin and paul are going to be the faces of la in a clippers uniform and you guys cant stand that. also, if griffin is nothing more than a highlight machine, then why are so many flaker fans wishing he would go over to the flake show. you guys are too funny.

Journeyman: hey, believe it or not I don't wish any ill-will towards the Clippers because they're from LA, I'm from Inglewood so they're a home team to me.m of course I wouldn't feel threatened here, you guys are all class acts.

Bullterrierclipsfan: griffin wants to do all this shoving and pushing and throwing forearms but when it gets returned the clipper organization wants to file police reports. Griffin flops more than European player. I don't like to see any player get hurt, but Griffin should have expected this with the way he does things.

Why would you think we are hating on Clipper fans? I don't wake up thinking uuughhh clippers fans have the second best team in LA, damn they piss me off. Last time I check there wasn't a "I feel sorry for Clippers fans" thread that starts blasting Clippers fans.

No team stays good forever, it's just how the process works. The Lakers had a good run, they won't win a championship and maybe Paul and Griffin if he actually works on his game will become the face of LA. It most likely will be their pictures on the back of a milk carton saying " championship rings missing. The Lakers will no doubtedly have to rebuild, which Clipper fans are no stranger to in the past. You guys have been in a rebuilding process since around 84'. So after 28 years of rebuilding your team is good enough to reach the first round of the playoffs, congrats.

gemfow, are u related to lakergemfow, because both of u are spewing ignorance. another flaker fan talking about flopping. man, you guys invented flopping with divac and fisher. paulina gasol screams like he is about to be prison raped everytime he goes into the paint. so does bynum and kobe. in case u didnt know, griffin has been flagrant fouled 15 times. most in the nba. this is because opponents try to hurt the kid. not even just foul him. if any team did that to those flaker p*****s, you guys would want to lynch that player, so before you open your mouth, look at everything objectively. the so called fans of your team talk a lot of s***. i have beaten up at least 10 flaker idiots throughout my life of being a clips fan (21 years) for talking s***. thats why people despise flaker fans. most of them are dumb, arrogant motherF*****s, who dont even know their team's starting 5. if i remember correctly we finished ahead of the flakers in 2005-06, 2006-07 and made the wc semis in 2005-06. so your little remark about out team being good enough to reach the first rd shows how ignorant u are. so gtfo of here with your trolling bro.

Little history for lesson for gemfow and the rest of the ignorant laker bandwagoners (about 99.6% of their 'fans'): The lakers have not brought 16 championships to L.A. The first 5 were won by the MINNEAPOLIS Lakers BEFORE the Clippers (then Buffalo Braves) even existed. Back then, there were 8, yes 8 teams in the entire league... kinda improves your chances of winning. The lakers moved to L.A. in 1959 and were the only ticket in town for TWENTY-FIVE YEARS before the Clippers arrived... quite a head-start when it comes to building a fanbase... you think Knicks fans are going to....

Bullterrierclipsfan: I forogt that I created an account a while back, so I'll be closing lakergemfow. I'm quite aware of Lakers floppers from Divac down to Fisher. What does that have to do with Griffin also flopping? There are floppers in the NBA and Griffin is one of them. I don't respect floppers on my team or any other. I don't know whether to laugh at your comments or what. You said you've beaten up at least ten lakers fans over your years of being a Clippers fan. Here is some advice for you, next time don't brag about your immaturity online. People who usually fight usually do so because their words are lacking and can't express themselves very well and resort to physical violence. As an adult, it really isn't an admirable trait unless it's self-defense or you're getting paid for it like Floyd or Pacman. Also my comment about the first round is actually in regards to this season champ. I'm far from a troll, I haven't hopped on here trying to start anything, I joined a thread just like you did. I actually joined this site before you did. Calm down on your anger, look at your posts, they're laced with so-called bleeped out expletives. Your Clippers have had a great year and you're sitting up here cussing about Laker fans and how you've had fights with them. That's kind of sad in my opinion.

Cleepers: not a bad post my man. Thanks for the history lesson, but I'm nt a Laker fan who needs it. Even though there were championships that were won before they moved to LA from Minnesota via Detroit, those championships are part of the Lakers franchise and those banners hang in the Staples center in LA. Those championships don't belong to the Timberwolves do they? So those championships were brought home to LA.

Your team made some good moves, you drafted Griffin with yet another lottery pick, you guys traded for Paul and your record reflects that. You can't be speaking of me bro when talking about being a bandwagon fan. I was born in LA, raised in South Central and then Inglewood. I was born into a Laker loving family. Igebeen a Laker fan for the longest, I've gone through the good and the bad, the Randy Pfund year and so forth. Realistically, fans flock to winners. If bth LA teams arrived in the same year and the Lakers won eleven rings and the Clippers were forever in the lottery, we would still have the larger fan base. We all know how fans can be.

What a ridiculous notion. Of course the championships don't belong to the Timberwolves... no more than they belong to the people of Los Angeles.

The people of Minnesota cheered those wins. The "lakers" corporate machine can claim 16 championships... but L.A. lakers fans have no part in 5 of them.

You see, us Clippers fans are the type of fans who would be proud of whatever the team ACTUALLY brought the fans. A real basketball fan might have raved about the championship GAMES he witnessed his team win, instead of debating the technicalities of which corporation actually claims the right to hang a few yellow flags.

Cleepers: one question. The championships belong to the Lakers. So, with that being said, since the Lakers belong to Los Angeles, wouldn't the championships that they have won belong as well?

Given your words, I guess they should rip down Mikan's retired jersey since he never played a game in LA. Mikan was a part of the Lakers organization, the tradition and the same goes for the championships. No one will put an asterisk for every ring won outside of LA.

Funny thing is that I never raved about championships I haven't witnessed. So what are you talking about?

You can't speak for all Clippers fans as being real fans and being proud of whatever the team ACTUALLY brought them. You guys have bandwagon fans as we speak because of Griffin dunks and Paul assists and a good W-L record. Good teams get bandwagon fans, it's happened with the Lakers, there are all types of Celtics fans who popped up in 2007 and now there are so many Heat fans. The Clippers aren't exempt from it so you speaking about Clipper fans being a certain way is somewhat an embellishment.

dude, u come on here trying to boast about how many titles u have while putting our team down. that pisses me off. then trying to sound like u are making credible posts by being nice in the beginning of the post and then talk smack, proves my point that flaker fans are arrogant. and yes, ive beaten flaker fans up because they are often the ones who tried to fight me when i supported my team and got tired of their smack talking so i answered in kind and they were the ones who threw the first punch. so it was self defense. i dont start fights, but i do defend myself. not bragging, because i am not into doing that, but i am training to fight pro inside the next year. currently doing amateur mma fights. just saying since u are implying that i fight because i dont have anything intelligent to say and thats why i fight. i dislike fighting. i try to walk away from confrontation, but in the case of those laker fans who got mad because i responded to their taunts, i defended myself. i dont fight unless its self defense or it leads to a furthering of my fighting career. i am short tempered, i give u that, but its usually based on people talking s***. its ok if u like the flakers. fine. but dont come on here putting our team down with your so called facts, that would border on trolling. this is a clippers forum. not a lakers forum.

Bullterrierclipsfan: if you look at my first post under lakergemfow, please point out where I came in putting your team down? I critiqued Griffin and pretty much said your team looks sort of like the past New Orleans squad with West and Paul, I would say yougbuys are a little better but you still come down to two players.

Where did I boast about how many titles that the Lakers had? Cleepers entered on here giving me a history lesson and we just engaged in a little bit of a debate. I merely said that we will be alright as a franchise, we have won a lot of championships and that's true. Whether its 16 like us Lakers fans say or eleven like Clippers fans say, it's still a lot of championships.

Well, if those lakers fans stepped to you first then they deserved what you gave them, a beat down. I can respect that you fought in self-defense, not as if you were looking for my respect but I respect that. Well, I can ony go ff the words you said, which was you beat up Lakers fans for talking mess, so that's why I assumed you just resorted to violence after words were exchanged, apparently I was wrong.

I know it's a Clippers forum, I didn't come on here trolling either. I haven't said anything to try to get Clippers fans worked up. I responded to this tread which was clearly targeting Lakers fans, I get that because it's a Clippers forum so of course Lakers fans will be a target, but I only responded in kind.
