even at this point I'm giving 60/40 odds that in the next couple of years they will completely fuck this up

The Cubs have pennants, they have plenty of division wins... Clippers have made the playoffs like 3 times in my entire lifetime, never higher than the 6th seed, and in the NBA half the teams make the playoffs.

Barring major, career-ending injury, I think the Clippers will be awesome in several years. I'm convinced that Elgin Baylor was the franchise's main problem. As great as he was as a player, he was a disaster as a GM

I'm also old enough to remember the Clippers franchise when they were the Buffalo Braves (yes, I really am that old) when they had players like Bob McAdoo winning the NBA MVP award, Ernie DiGregorio winning ROY honors, and going to the playoffs. I don't want to argue the point about how sucky the Clippers are, since we could argue for days about how to define suckitude, how to define the Clippers franchise, etc. I think we can all agree that they've been a lousy franchise, certainly one of the worst in all of sports, for a long, long time. I'm actually looking forward to seeing Griffin, Paul et al. play together and seeing how far they can go.

For all the Lakers fans: Who in the HELL is Devin Ebanks?? Is he REALLY the best they have at small forward?

My prediction for the 2011-2012 season: Miami beats OKC in the NBA finals. OKC had a great off-season by standing pat and keeping a really good team together. Their experience playing together will be very important in the compressed season.

I can only hope that Lebron will mix up his iPads, wear one of his sneakers for the wrong activity, then trip and break his ass bone. If anyone deserves a broken assbone, its this douchebag.
