The Clips will fight. We will arise out of bed to watch them slay the Grizzlies.
Since the first day I signed up for this Blog on May 28, 2008 it has been in HONOR to be a part of Clips Nation. Citizen Zhiv, Steve, John R, Jax, m0ki, Shap, Shay, John Raffo, ANother son of Mike Smith, PV Mike, Flybyknite, Lawler's Law, and many others surprised me with their great knowledge of the NBA as a whole. These guys are not Laker fans who didn't even know who Pau was until he was traded to the Lakers. These guys see the big Picture of the NBA and are more than willing to share their knowledge. Clipper Nation means being a part of some of the most knowledgeable NBA fans out there. That's an honor.
I'll never forget heated arguments about whether to blow Cap Space on signing Josh Smith or not. Also, who could forget debates about a hot young PG named Ramon Sessions. Earlier this year, the big Debate was whether the Clips gave up too much for CP3. Many on Clips Nation felt the team gave up too much because we had seen Gordon and Kaman "grow up" in frout of our eyes over the yrs. We all agree new CP3 changed LA basketball.
One of the great things about meeting a true member of Clipper Nation (not someone that claims to Support both LA teams) is the "nod of approval" whenever I meet them. It's a special bond....both understand the annoyance of years of clowning from know-nothing "casual" Lakers fans and turning on Sports Radio only to listen to All-day Laker coverage about Andrew Bynum's attitude. Life is different being a Clips fan...but when things go well, it's very rewarding.
Clipper Nation stand up! The team will one day win a title. ClipperNation are the BEST and most Loyal Fans in the NBA.
