Four words you won't be seeing on the Staples Center scoreboard come the Clippers' Oct. 30 opener: LET THE GAMES BEGAN.
Last RT, ESPN Summer Forecast voters picked Spurs to win the Western Conference Finals next season with 232 votes, Thunder 159, Clippers 89
Morris has played on 4 NBA teams since being picked in the 2nd round of the 2011 draft, including the Clips, 76ers & Grizzlies last year.
re: Griz camp. L.A. Clippers held camp at University of California San Diego last year but were told they couldn't this time because of Griz
I have a VERY hard time believing the L.A. Clippers franchise (at $2B) is worth more than all but 4 NFL teams, according to Forbes.
Forbes' sports franchise "valuation" lists are BS. In Jan.'14 it had Bucks at $405M, they sold for $550M. Had Clips at $575M. Sold for $2B.
Dick Parsons tells Fox Business Network he will stay on as Clippers CEO for "just a couple more weeks."
Ballmer, meanwhile, reiterated that he will not move the Clippers to Seattle.
Thunder-Clippers rivalry already getting good. Addition of Ballmer and Spencer Hawes (two outspoken/proud Seattle natives) only adds to it.
FWIW - Steve Ballmer was explicitly more committed to Clippers in LA than the name Clippers
I wonder how long it will take before Steve Ballmer stops being asked if he'll move the Clippers to Seattle?
Ballmer: "Seattle is a town that deserves an NBA team...but the L.A. in L.A. Clippers is not changing."
Steve Ballmer’s speech to Clippers fans was perfect, but I long to hear what it would have been like in Seattle with him on stage.
Doc on Clippers name change: "I look at it as a name of survival. We've gone through a lot of stuff not just recently but for a long time."
Doc says the Clippers' name is a "name of survival."
No plans to change the Clippers name - Ballmer sees that brand as one of the hottest in the NBA
Ballmer doesn't seem interested in changing the name of the Clippers.
Ballmer: "The Clippers are the hottest brand in basketball right now."
Wow what a rally for our new Clippers owner!!! Mr. Balmer energy was crazy!!! I love it!! Exciting time for the Clippers!!
Ballmer: "I will boldly say the Clippers will win many, many, many, many more Larrys in the next 26 than the past 26."
Ballmer: "I'll boldly say the Clippers will win MANY, MANY, MANY more Larry's in the next 26 years than over the past 26 years!"
