Hypothetical: Should the Clippers hang a banner if they win the Pacific Division?


Last night, I told my wife that the Clippers still have an outside chance to win the Pacific Division.

Her reply was, "Wow, then we'll finally be able to put up a banner of our own."

I hadn't considered that. I know that some teams hang their division banners, but I don't recall whether there are currently any flying in Staples Center. I explained to her that it would be embarrassing for us to hang our one measly division banner next to the Lakers 15 Championship banners. She said it was just my ego, and that we should celebrate the accomplishment.

I told her that a division banner would be worse than having no banner at all, and that this was a strike-shortened season anyway. She said that all the teams played the same number of games, and that hanging a banner would be a nice F-U to the Lakers fans.

So I will put it to The Nation. If the Clippers are able to pass the Lakers in the standings and secure the Pacific Division title, should they hang a banner in the rafters as a celebration and an indication of our arrival, or should we not celebrate moral victories and realize that LA only respects championships?
