Rarely does a Clipper loss look so bright

The Clippers lost on Sunday to the best team in the NBA, but they didn’t go easily and even in the loss, the Clippers could take solace in the play of their rookies. The team is in the playoffs because of Lou Williams/Montrezl Harrell/Danilo Gallinari¬†but they all failed to play at the level Clipper fans …

Waving the white flag

There was this silly talk after Feb 7th trade deadline that the Clippers were tanking.¬† They had just traded their best player and their starting shooting guard. Even though the Clippers were in front of the Kings and Lakers for the 8th spot in the seeding, every pundit around said the Kings and Lakers would …

A conversation rooted in the past

Near the conclusion of the Clipper / Laker game last night this conversation was going on all over Staples Center. Son/Daugther – how come the Lakers lose every time we go to a game? Father decked out in Purple/Gold – it just seems like it but we have won a couple of games. Remember that …

Lou Williams was traded by the Hawks in the summer of 2014 for John Salmons. Lou would …

Is Five Thirty Eight going to join the Clipper bandwagon?

The “Clamp City” Clippers are the surprise team in the NBA and enter play tonight in first place in the Western Conference. At the start of the season I was more optimistic than most, but considering the tough early schedule and the injury history of Danilo, I was hoping for a .500 winning percentage, not …

The journey to Clippertown is complete

There was a time when the Lakers meant more to me than the Dodgers and Rams. From the time I first saw Jerry West hit that 60 foot shot in 69 to send the Lakers into overtime and eventual loss, they were my team. Without even thinking I can still name every starting member of …

Unleash the Boban

I’m guessing everyone who doesn’t know this bit of trivia would be blown away but the NBA player with the highest PER in the 21st century does not play for the Lakers, he plays for the Los Angeles Clippers. OK, all sorts of caveats apply, but it is still true. Not a fake fact. Crit …
