Let's start a campaign to bring LeBron James to the Clippers!

As TJ Simers put it really well in his recent article, the Clippers are clearly the best team for LeBron to sign with this summer, with the best arena of LA and the Staples Center and the best talent in Baron, Kaman, Gordon, and Griffin.  If LeBron stays in Cleveland or goes anywhere else, he will be stuck with subpar players in a subpar town (yes I'm saying it, LA is superior to NYC!). 

And yet, no one thinks that there's any way LeBron signs with the Clippers.  I'm sure even Club Optimism would put it as a less than 10% chance.  LeBron will, of course, definitely have doubts about the Clippers organization, the owner, the coach, the team, and the fans.  None of us can really control any of the first three, but we as the most dedicated fans of the Clippers can launch a guerilla marketing campaign to put the team on his radar and show him how much love we will show him if he signs with the team!  If there's even a 1% chance that he'd sign with the Clippers, we should do whatever we can to make our case known - I mean, look at how blatantly the Knicks have been campaigning for LeBron, why shouldn't we do the same and be overly obvious and in his face about how much we would love for him to sign with the Clippers?

Here's my proposal: We launch an all out campaign to bring LeBron to the Clippers, attacking from every angle possible.  I propose that we have custom LeBron Clippers jerseys made and and especially one for Clipper Darrell and start wearing them to as many games as possible (if we can get a bunch of people wearing them for the January 16th game when the Cavs come into town, that would be really good, but we need people to start wearing them consistently too).  We can also start a website called "ClippersKingJames.com" or "KingJamesBreaksTheClippersCurse.com" or something far more clever that somebody on here can come up with, send him tons of emails and tweets, create crazy youtube edited videos showing LeBron throwing down dunks as a Clipper, photoshop him into Clippers team photos, and do whatever else we can to keep inundating him and the media to show LeBron that the Clippers actually have a fan base, an intelligent and dedicated one at that, and try to outweigh everyone's never-ceasing belief that the Clippers are the worst sports franchise in the universe and keep reminding him of all the positive aspects that go with joining the Clippers.  Who's with me????
