I love Bill Simmons Clipper articles. He always knows how to write what long time Clipper fans are feeling.

I can't stand Bill Simmons and I don't think he is a true Clipper fan. He has season tickets so he can watch big name teams come play here.

I totally disagree. Bill Simmons is legit.

I agree with blasana in saying that Bill Simmons in not legit and that he's just a season ticket holder to see big name teams play. Proof of that is that he's a CELTICS fan through and through. In all is interviews he doesn't identify himself as a Clipper fan but rather a Celtic one, he's from Boston people!

This is true... He is a Boston fan but I think the team is growing on him.... Heck, he been trying to get his daughter to be a Celtics fan but she loves Griffin... lol

He is a Celtics fan yeah. But I think his takes on the Clippers are very fair for the organization - even if its stuff we dont like hearing or try to ignore. In the end his takes are pretty much spot on. I think its legit and I respect the things he has to say.

I have been a clipper fan for over 10 years and one thing I will never be is a delusional about the organization. The truth hurts and I accept it. Just because you accept the truth doesnt make you a hater. Its when you accept the truth and still support the team that makes you legit.

Oh man, that description of opening night brought back bad memories.

It's clear that we're no longer a laughing stock this season, because we have been winning... so far. To really shed that aura of "Oh look! It's the same old Clippers," we need to string together a couple of really successful years or being competitive in the playoffs, or dare I say it, win a championship! But first things first, we need BG and CP3 to resign with us for years to come.

listen to his podcast, read his articles. he NEVER says he's a clippers fan. he's 100% celtics and purchased the season seats so he could go to games and watch other teams play. over time, he's grow to like the clips and treats them like a pet. but he always makes sure to tell people that he's not a clipper fan.

i remember carmelo anthony told the media that his close friend CP loved LA and would eventually sign a long-term deal with the clips.

this was like 2 months ago.

well i hope cp3 does resign with us. i know BG is a restricted FA so he will be a clipper for many years to come. cp3 is a different story. but it looks like he might be a clipper for a long time as well. but ill hold off from celebrating til he signs an extension.

Thank you Ekker this is what I was saying above. I can't stand Simmons

  1. Not a true Clipper fan

  2. Too many times with his articles he goes off on random tangents and doesn't even talk about sports.

No Thanks!
