Sorry, I haven't been on for awhile due to work. But if you remember, I was complaining last week about how First Take never gives out squad any attention. So, I'm watching First Take today, as usual, and more than half the show is dedicated to the Laker/OKC game. Obviously the MWP elbow, but what REALLY annoyed me, was, they were talking about "are Lakers contenders cause they beat OKC". WTF?? We beat OKC 3 outta 4 times this season, with no mention. Lakers beat them 1 outta 3 and all of a sudden its "are they contenders to win....

It makes you wonder if they could have beat them if Harden was available.

I don't wonder. The answer is NO, they can't.

Not only that, but they beat them without harden in the second half, and had to come back from like 17 back in the fourth. Oh yeah, and they get worked by the top teams. Two 20+ point losses to the spurs, and 3 double digit losses to OKC. The lakers are only being talked about because their name is the lakers. Just wait for the playoffs, I know I can't wait.

Yeah, that show kinda sucks. I finally wrote them off when they all agreed (and by "they" I mean 3 panelists who have nothing to do with basketball) that Blake Griffin is overrated, can't shoot and can't play defense. One guy even calling BG "like a supermodel with no brains or personality".

So, as I say, they suck.

I hear it's Skip Bayless who recommends the topics. He doesn't think much of the Clippers, so they hardly ever talk about them.

No disrespect to your post, Trick, but... I don't give a rats ass what pundits and shows are saying about us anymore.

The media's comfort zone sits snugly between 'safe' and 'trendy'. We're neither right now. This team, more often than not, has shown me that they have what it takes to grind out playoff-type games... and that's what has grabbed my imagination. I think we can take Memphis... but it's going to be a hell of a series!

ill add that harden was chopping them up. he had 14 pts in 13 min. 3 for 3 from 3 point land. if he had been playing the thunder beat the flake show by 25. it makes me wonder if mike brown had artest cheapshot harden. they knew they couldnt stop the kid so they took him out.

Lakers = ratings, Clippers does not... it's the world we have lived in and still live in, I've been cultured to not hear my favorite team talked about, is what it is

I'm just fine with being under the radar. We'll shock everyone come playoff time, especially Memphis who has not beaten a quality opponent for about 2 weeks now.

I sort of agree with this. Our guys can do the talking on the court,,we can sit back and enjoy arguably the best Clipper team ever assembled. Pundits hate success of teams that are supposed to always supposed to be fodor for thier jokes and they don't know what to do with us. So we flop or Blake this and that,,eff them. The media will drive you insane if you let them.

I don't buy the conspiracy angle. I do believe the NBA has to come down a lot harder on this sort of violent... Jason Smith should have been suspended for ten games, not two... Artest should be suspend for 40...

Let's not let our sport become like hockey.

I couldn't agree more about all the b.s. the media talk about a lot of those guys dont even watch the games.At least Skip had CP3 as an MVP for a good part of the year(although im not a fan of Skip at all)

What makes me want the Clippers to win even more is when I hear idiot commentators like Jon Barry talking about how the Lakers game against Sactown is meaningless.

Does he realize were still tied in the standings ,regardless I hope we can at least beat Atlanta tonight and make things a little easier going into the game against the Knicks. It's more important being healthy going into the playoffs anyways(I'd even consider resting Butler and Griffin from the Knicks game depending on how injured they still are.

Regardless we've never had a better season so I really dont care what the media says this Clipper team will only get better.

This X100

Who cares what the media says. How much attention do the Spurs get? They are virtually ignored but are championship contenders year after year.

Winning > Popularity from ESPN
