It was a tough year as a laker fan and whats worst is seeing the Clippers having their so called "best season" ever. But the world has come back to normal again and the Clippers having their "best season' and the Lakers having one of their 'worst season" end up having almost the same ending.  This town will never be a clipper town. As a number 1 clipper hater, I am throwing a party for the exit of the Clippers in the playoff. I am glad the world finally realized how crappy this franchise is and how they have the worst owner in all of sports. For you clipper fans (mostly laker haters) I want you to just go away and find another team to root for. Now you guys can argue the Clippers future might be better but I can argue that as long as I put a curse on this franchise, this franchise will never be successful. Stay where you belong.

Let's see, its:

1.  A team with a still young core

2.  With some payroll flexibility this offseason

3.  Assuming he re-signs, a superstar in his prime

4.  A questionable coach with an expired contract

 

I wish we had their roster and their issues right now.  They are so much more immediately solvable than ours.  

 

Hire Stan Van Gundy, Brian Shaw, Nate McMillan or Jerry Sloan.  Coach issue is solved.

 

Dump Deandre Jordan for a decent big man committed to steady defense and who will give you a few points and rebounds.  Pekovic?  Al Jefferson? Someone else?

 

Get a good wing defender.  Ariza?

 

Laugh all you want.  The Clippers are just not that far from being a c-ship caliber team.  Will they get to that level?  I dont know, and the owner certainly has a long history of screwing it up, but we have an owner with a short history of doing the same.

It all sounds great and all but you talking about Donald Sterling here.  Did you realized he "fired" the GM that put the roster together? Oh im sorry, my mistake, Neil Olshey left the club on his own terms.  We all know Olshey wanted a raised and Sterling being the cheapest mo fo in sports didnt want to pay the guy so he left. And I find it unfair to compared Jim Buss to Donald Sterling. He only had a few years of fully controlling the club. And remember Jim did get D12 and Nash to come here. It just happens he hired the wrong coach for them. I will never compared anybody to Sterling. That is a huge slap in the face to anybody if you compared them to sterling. 

 

As long as Sterling owns the team, the clippers will NEVER and I mean EVER win a championship or even go to the finals.

Why?

We have a superstar in his prime and all our contracts come off the books in 2014. Besides the coach situation, we are in a better spot for improving.

Sterling is about making money. If this team doesn't show up next year and make a deep playoff run, I expect the same old Clips to return.

And that is if Paul re signs this off season. If not it will be the same old Clip show.

35 years old  + major  injury = past his prime.

28 years old + 1 year removed from major surgery might = prime, we will see next year

 

And yes, there is nowhere to go but up, in terms of a coach.

Yeah, it is all just good potential for now.  Lets see how Sterling plays it this offseason.

 

We will see how Olshey does in Portland.  He is a bright guy.  Some folks seem to think that Sacks was the real brains who put the Clippers roster together and he certainly gets credit for signing most of the FAs in the offseason.  The test for him will be this offseason.  Time will tell.
