Inspiration Lost

As we continue this disappointing season, we all have our opinions as to what is wrong with our Clippers. Some say that it's Coach Dunleavy's fault and that his inability to implement an effective offense has doomed the team. Others argue that Baron Davis is to blame. He's supposed to be the leader of this team and yet seems to not be playing with the effort or determination needed. Still others will blame the team's troubles on the injuries or the number of new players that are getting to know one another. However, I think we are overlooking the obvious. The Clippers are not playing inspired basketball because the person that inspired the team and fans the most is no longer with us.

No, I'm not talking about Elton Brand, Corey Maggette, Shaun Livingston, or the other former Clippers. I'm talking about the person you could always count on to give full effort...to work as hard as possible...to have a positive attitude no matter what...to continually flash that wonderful smile when things got tough. Yes, I'm talking about former Clipper girl Taylor. The players no longer have a beautiful lady to impress with their play. Coach Dunleavy, while continuing to dress up in the hope that she might someday return, no longer is able to motivate the team to give it their all. This dreadful season could have all been avoided if only the organization had the common sense to keep their most popular Clipper girl around. Unfortunately, they lacked that common sense and are now suffering the curse...the curse of Taylor.

I think the only way to salvage this season is to break this curse by bringing Taylor back...at the very least, it would make going to the games much more entertaining.

Have a great New Year's everyone!
