Also a little tidbit about Balmers in the emails. Ballz = Balmer 

 

Didn’t Ballz see what we did to my brother?? He will have nothing but Clippers basketball. Whoopee

There has been a whole lot of "leaks" from the Lakers oranization for a minute down. WOW. I remember when somebody her said they should sell the the franchise. It sounds like it is about that time. Sell, and build from scratch.. KEEP RYAN WEST AND JESSE. All this garbage is messy at this point. Everything bad that is bad, is coming out. Waiting for a sex scandal next

If the Clippers land two big free agents this Summer, I would say Lakers brand might be compromised (to a degree).  It's hard to believe in the Clippers until they actually do something, but I would take Steve Ballmer seriously.  He's got Jerry West, and if they land Kawhi.....

 

Playing some games at the Forum would be cool, but STAPLES is right on the Metro Expo line in the heart of downtown LA.  It's a train that you can ride with your family from the Westside (which is the nicer part of LA).  I don't see a move back to the Forum, but the idea of playing some games there, heck yes.

They landed CP3 with Griffin and a good coach and did nothing....not worried about them...

Past doesn't necessarily equal the future.  Now that Lakerfans are divided between Kobefans (LeBron haters) and authentic Lakerfans, I think you will see a lot of Kobefans bandwagoning over to the Clippers next season, especially if they land two big fish.

This will be seen and interpreted as if like the Clippers ran the Lakers out of Staples and claimed it as their own turf.

Staples is overrated and getting outdated. I’d rather they redo the forum more history there.


Bye for now

I don’t see them leaving except if maybe they offer the Buss family a stake in the Fabulous Forum. It’s a negotiation tactic. Clippers, Kings and Sparks can’t fill it up and make the money like the Lakers do.


Bye for now

IN any event, we're seeing a lot of Kobefans dropping off the Lakers.  They don't like LeBron.  Actually there are lots of LeBron haters on this forum.  My guess is that some of those Kobefans will find a natural fit as Clipperfans, assuming #Ballmer lands a couple big fish in FA.

But for the lack of public transportation, Forum would be a cool venue.  I think it would be soooo cool to have a handful of games played there every year.  It will never happen, but OH would that be cool!!!!  I have actually been to games at the old fab Forum...way back in the day.  

 

Old school LA local here...  :glasses:
