So today, while driving home after work, I was listening to ESPN Radio when the folks there replayed a snippet of an interview with Pau Gasol during training. In the interview, they asked Pau why he thought Clippers were so good this season. His response was short and to the point: Clippers are good because of the schedule. No other reason. I thought to myself, "you arrogant pr***!" It is amazing that these fools cannot give the Clippers their due.
It is not hard to praise other teams when they have improved. We do it here all the time. For example, we recognize that the Timberwolves have improved and we have said it openly. The Laker arrogance knows no boundaries.
