It looks like the Clippers are tired of having their home games look like they’re in the building of another team. Even with the Clippers branding on the court, in previous seasons in Staples Center, all one would have to do is to look into the rafters to see all of the Lakers championship banners and retired jerseys — something the Clippers have yet to do at Staples Center.
This year, however, the Clippers have decided that enough is enough. No, they’re not going to hang their own banners. They’re just going to cover up the Lakers banners during home games. It’s still not clear whether the Clippers will hang the banner for their first ever Division Title (Blake Griffin has said that he doesn’t want the team to do so), but one thing is clear — Clippers fans won’t have to look at the storied history of the Lakers in the rafters. I wonder if they’ll cover photos from championship parades and title games all around the arena as well.
