Before Blake Griffin was drafted. I would hardly see a person with Clipper jersey on. Now, all of a sudden there's Clipper fans that have the nerve to talk about how bad the Lakers are playing.

It is a sad state of affairs here in LA as most of the BB fans, especially clipper fans are quite honestly bandwagons! They jump aboard (clipper bandwagon)only when things are hunky dory, but these same "die hard" clipper fans, adorn the purple and gold during the numerous laker parades! These so called fans don't have an ounce of loyalty and are simply not willing to go through the barren deserts and adversities when the chips are down. There are very few of us on ltb who endeared the barren period the lakers had between 89-00....however the support for....

Even though I despise the Cowboys,its just like Texas no matter how many games the Texans win the team will always be Dallas. The Clippers are contenders this year according to many this year as were the Texans,but all the talk was and still is Cowboys and Lakers during the season.

I just cannot wait for the Clips to drown in the shadows of our Lakers' franchise. Don't have to deal with their bandwagoning as*es any longer.

First and foremost I am truly sorry for your loss today. Dr. Buss brought magic to LA and changed the face of the game in this city and the world. It is the end of an era and that era was very impressive.

Secondly someone asked me to name the Clips starting 5 from 5 years ago? Hmmm... I believe that was: Cassell, Mobley, Maggette, Kaman, Brand. But that year Brand was injured like the whole season we let Cassell go to Boston (where he beat you guys in the Finals) and Kaman was also kind of a bust injury wise. That season Brand pleaded to fans I'll be back healthy and in the off season we picked up Baron Davis and EB took off to Philly like hours later.

Again I want to say the reason I initially posted was because one of you guys posted on Clippers Top Buzz and I cut and pasted the exact post and basically swapped out team names. The dude so pissed me off with his post but after sleeping on it I got curious... How would the Lake Show faithful respond?

That being said every post but my initial one has been exactly what I feel and I have truly been enjoying the exchanges we've all had. More than happy to reread my initial post and share my real version of what I think and not a cut and paste job.

At the end of the day I love living in LA and while

I'm not a fan of the Lakers I do respect the organization. Thoroughly enjoyed rooting for Kobe last night watching him shut down "the King" and seeing how well Kobes and Blake clearly get along. Just like its fun to root for Lebron when he's playing for Team USA.

I personally think that for the most part Lakers fans don't hate the Clippers like a lot of the Clips hate the Lakers but that's because you guys have a true rival in Boston. Where as our rivals are you guys! And as long as you never accept the Clippers as a true rival it will continue to upset us and drive us even more stark raving mad!!

I look forward to the day where we meet in the Western Conference Championship round and hope that it happens multiple times and we always win and you guys hate us as much as the Celtics one day!

Again sorry for your loss. Sad day for hoops and sad day for LA

you clearly don't understand what a rival is. Just because they share the same building doesn't automatically make them rivals to us. Clippers were the JV team to LA for so long that no one really cared. It's the truth. If you were a clippers fan from 3 years ago and back then you were being laughed at. Like many other posters here said, It's not a rival until we have continous battles in the playoffs. Lakers don't even have a history with the clippers. I don't mind or care for the clippers. I've gone to their games since 2001. I bet half these fans don't even remember the darius miles, odom, quentin richardson days. They were fun to watch even though they were garbage. There's no history and just because clippers are having a good year doesnt mean we are rivals. If they can consistently keep a good record for the next decade and meet the lakers in the playoffs at least half the decade then we got ourselves a rival. Until then, Clippers are just an up and coming team. I don't hate the clippers, I just hate that I can't drive around downtown and decide last minute to watch a game because no one ever went or the tix were really low priced. I actually have to purchase in advance. I just love basketball

I'm def not a bandwagoner I've been a Clips season ticket holder for over a decade. I do understand what rivals are, and the Lakers rival is the Boston Celtics and the Clippers rival is the Los Angeles Lakers. Fact.

Anyone who thinks the Clippers aren't for real and aren't here to stay doesn't know basketball. Just responding to some comments and am fully aware this is a sounding board for Lakers only. And I will say it again bummer about Buss. Just may be the rallying cry for the would be Hollywood ending on this season as it enters Act Two. Can't wait to see if you guys make any moves in the next 48 hours!

What were trying to say is that there is no rivalry between the clippers and lakers just because of what the media and clipper fans say lol. Lets be honest, the clippers became relevant last year and are better this year. So for last season and this season, the lakers and clippers would have a combined 8 regular season games together. How is that a rivalry? Rivalries are born in the playoffs. As for right now, were 2 different teams with one of the teams thinking they stole the other teams city. That's all it is right now.

Oh it's definitely a one way street! Ask Boston who their rival is its Lakes and vice versa. Two way street. I argue that the Clips became relevant 3 seasons ago when people realized Blake was a great night out. We won 9 in a row at home and started selling out Staples and haven't stopped since. Which is something you guys have probably done since 99 aka birth of Staples. Love that Kobe said his favorite away stadium after MSG was Staples Center for Clips home games! Also loved the year neither of us made the playoffs and we finished w a better record than you guys and when Kobe was asked about it he said what do they want a cookie? I've heard him drop the cookie line a few times since but that was the first time I heard it. That guys a walking Lebron blocking soundbite!

Well case #1 is that the celtics and lakers have some evidence of a rivalry. Lakers and clippers don't.

Case #2 . I'm not sure what you mean by clippers were relevant when they realized about Blake. You're talking about highlights, I'm talking playoffs. They came into the playoff picture last season which is when the games between the clippers and lakers were taken more seriously. Why were they taken more seriously you ask? It is because cp3 was a laker before stern vetoed it. Lets just say that the clippers were a playoff team without cp3. Would the games be blown out of proportion then? No because there isn't some significance to the matchup. Cp3 is the reason why people are starting to thinks that there is a rivalry and no I'm not talking about his skill set, I'm talking about the fact that he was and should've been a laker.

Case #3. Like we all haven't repeated a line a couple times in our life lol.

Oh I'm on that board too pal. It's tough to mind my own business when everywhere I go it's Laker talk on the radio, Laker signs in the windows, everything except an actual Lake in Los Angeles. Decided to embrace it as opposed to ignore it. And based on what I've read from your previous posts I highly doubt Teagle out.

The CP3 thing was Bizarro world. If the strike hadn't just happened it would have never gone down like that. Anything ever happen like that before in this league/all of sports? When I say Clips became relevant I mean people started paying attention. The meats hit the seats. Due to the highlights yes.

Question: I've seen that folks say Lakes have 3rd lightest load in the West to finish out the season... Is that just 3rd fewest games left to play or is there more to that? I mean don't you guys play 10 of 15 March games on the road?

I'm happy to see you guys are all mostly getting along. There has been less name calling and $%&*@ words than usual. I know there are more of you than would admit it that visit Clippers TopBuzz. And there are also Clipper fans who visit Lakers TopBuzz. Not a lot of cross posting though, mostly just curiosity about what fans from the other side are talking about. But a few are brave enough to post and take hits from the true loyalists.

Hi guys! I'm new here. I'm John, and I'm from the Philippines. A friend recommended this site to me. I love writing blog articles about basketball, and most especially about the Lakers, so my friend told me to try out this site and post my blog entries here. At least I would be sharing my own thoughts and insights with fellow Laker fans. So there, I hope I can interact more with the rest of you. Smile

Also, my favorite Laker is, you guessed it: Kobe.

Honorable mention: Magic Johnson, Derek Fisher

Cheers! And let's go Lakers! Smile
