Letter from Dick Parsons to Clipper fans

I am a season ticket holder and long time lurker on Clips Nation (I used to post often, but not much anymore.)

This email just came from the Clippers and I thought non-season ticket holders would enjoy reading it.


Los Angeles Clippers

Dear Jim,

As the new interim CEO of the Clippers, I want to introduce myself to you and thank you for your indispensable support in a time of challenge and transition for our organization. You - our fans - are the reason the team exists and we couldn't be more grateful for your loyalty.

When Commissioner Silver appointed me to this position, I made a commitment to him and the League to preserve and protect the team and to restore the confidence of our fans, players, sponsors and employees in this great organization. After meeting with the entire Clippers staff earlier this week, I've been inspired by the work they have done and continue to do on your behalf. I'm proud of the way the team has performed in the post-season - a testament to our brilliant coach and world-class players who have risen above the noise. The organization is strong and resilient, and everyone involved has demonstrated immense strength of character during this time.

While I won't be involved in the process of deciding who will eventually own the Clippers, I have no doubt that Commissioner Silver and the NBA will prevail. With your continuing support, we will do everything we can to make sure that this organization lives up to your expectations and represents our finest values going forward.

We have a real opportunity in front of us. We took some important initial steps this week to start down a new path and I intend to be here as long as it takes to finish the job. Throughout the team's history, the one constant has been you, our MVPs. On behalf of the entire Clippers organization, thank you for standing by us. You have not let us down, and we're not going to let you down.


    Dick Parsons
    Interim CEO
    Los Angeles Clippers
