Matt Barnes tells Lakers fans to stop living in the past, that the Clippers are L.A.’s best team

Aug 23, 2013, 8:26 PM EDT

Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Six Getty Images

Matt Barnes has never been shy about voicing his opinions, even when they’re unsolicited. But diving head first into the comments on a photo posted to Nick Young‘s Instagram for no apparent reason sure seems like an odd decision.

Then again, Barnes is no stranger to those, either.

The story goes like this: Young posted a photo of the Lakers’ practice facility, with a caption that read “That’s what’s it all about #Ships.”

The photo had received over 15,500 likes, and several comments from Lakers fans in support of one of their team’s free agent acquisitions.

Barnes, a former Laker who is now entering his second season with the Clippers, apparently wasn’t down with all the pro-Lakers talk. So he chimed in with a comment of his own, captured by Phillip Barnett of Lakers Nation.

source:

We know this came from Barnes because the Instagram account he used is the same one he links to from his verified Twitter account.

As for the comments themselves, there was nothing too inflammatory, really. The Clippers are expected to contend for one of the top spots in the Western Conference, while most are wondering if the Lakers will simply make the playoffs.

But as Barnes noted, Los Angeles will always be a Lakers town — despite whatever temporary modicum of success the Clippers are able to achieve. It’s just more than a little strange that Barnes decided to hit up a fellow NBA player’s social media account to get his point across.

    This wannabe tough guy has nothing better to do….What the hell does he know about winning a championship for an awesome city? This guy never won a championship in high school. That only thing he is known for is beating women

    This clown has been charge for domestic violence twice in less than two year SMH.

    Clippers best team in LA?… If I can re-call correctly they too made an early exit in the playoffs last year.

    • kinggw - Aug 23, 2013 at 9:12 PM

      Denigrate Barnes all you want, the bottom line is he’s right.

      He didn’t say anything out of pocket. The Clippers are currently the team du jour in LA and Lakers fans don’t want to accept it. Yes they have 16 titles, but they also have a mediocre team and its going to take more than a year or two for the Lake Show to be back among the league’s elite.

      • cuhris84 - Aug 23, 2013 at 9:47 PM

        How are Lakers fans living in the past? When The only argument are “Championships”. And why would a true Lakers fans join in on the bandwagon and jump ships to root for the Clippers? I’ll take the rich tradition of the Lakers, who seems to always find away to re-tool. For the Clippers fans, you should be excited. But, I’d keep a thought in back of my mind. The time Donald Sterling reverts back to his cheap ways. History only repeats itself.

        Barnes is right Clippers is a better team. Just stirring things up. Its good for basketball, good for city rivalry, good for the fans.

      • therealhtj - Aug 23, 2013 at 10:06 PM

        The majority of Lakers fans are hardly delusional about their chances this year, unlike the majority of the Clippers new bandwagon.

      • dannymac17 - Aug 24, 2013 at 3:01 AM

        therealhtj

        do you live in LA? Cause you are wrong. They are delusional about this very team and its chances.

      • theblatche - Aug 24, 2013 at 11:27 AM

        Well said, God Lakers fans are so pathetic

      • jdcrosier - Aug 24, 2013 at 11:30 AM

        I suppose you have the right to speak for all Laker fans? I’ve been a Laker fan for 50 years and guess what? The Clippers are better than the Lakers. We’ve been through this before as I recall in the mid 90’s. The thing is the Lakers always rebound. I’m not so sure now that Dr. Buss is no longer with us. Time will tell!

      • theblatche - Aug 24, 2013 at 11:36 AM

        Barnes is telling it how it is and Lakers fans are crying because they cannot except that hahahah. FACT IS: Clippers are top 3 team in the West and Lakers are bottom 5 team

      • bornalakerfan - Aug 24, 2013 at 2:11 PM

        Clippers fans didn’t exist a couple seasons ago

      • danwhite0302 - Aug 27, 2013 at 10:40 AM

        Okay, smart guy! U claim da Lakers aren’t da Team of LA becuz 1 bad season. Answer me this: what have da Clippers done to get da crown??? I’ll wait.

      • bobfell - Aug 28, 2013 at 7:13 PM

        the Clippers own LA when they sweep the season series and are the better team. Not franchise T.E.A.M.

    • simpleplan2014 - Aug 23, 2013 at 11:42 PM

      You guys can bitch all you want but Matt Barns is soooooooo RIGHT! All I hear from you laker people is we have 16 rings and banners…..True, but that doesn’t make you the best team in LA! Explain to all of the adoring fans on this site WHY you call yourselves Champions when you haven’t won crap in years???? You were lucky to make the playoffs last year. Also explain to the wonderful Laker fans who won the Pacific Division last year? If you guys don’t have any news to bragg about except 3 year old (soon to be 4) crap, hen you should get a grip on reality…………The Lakers suck! and Kobe, Pau and Nash are the proud owners of the NBA’s AARP Squad….Nuff Said!

      • spthegr8 - Aug 24, 2013 at 2:20 PM

        @simple
        We need to get a grip on reality??? Pot, meet kettle. You clipper fans are bragging about a division banner. That speaks VOLUMES to how sad, pathetic and how BAD y’all have sucked over the years. You get mad when Laker fans say” you have never won anything” ( all be it, it’s the truth ) Do you think when an ugly fat chick looks in the mirror and see’s what she looks like she calls the mirror mean??? It just is, what it is!!! As Matt said….DEAL WITH IT!!!

      • bornalakerfan - Aug 24, 2013 at 2:22 PM

        Besides chris paul the clippers are short handed blake & jordan are JUST dunkers they don’t have a CHAMPIONSHIP roster so who cares how young they are the talent is not there unless you’re talkin dunk contest you see what undersized, no lift having, zach randolph did to their post season.

      • theblatche - Aug 24, 2013 at 9:12 PM

        SPTHEGR8, Clippers fans aren’t bragging about their one banner or denying that LA is a Lakers town. THE 1 POINT HERE is that the Clipperes are actually really good now while the Lakers are really bad

    • spthegr8 - Aug 24, 2013 at 1:13 AM

      @davis
      He wasn’t a tough guy when he found out the Games body guard was being very “friendly with his wife” ( don’t want them to delete my comment, all tho they still might ) he took it on the chin which is pretty ironic, they said she did too!!!

      • theblatche - Aug 24, 2013 at 9:19 PM

        sptheGr8, it’s really sad listening to some of you Clueless Lakers babies. There are some standup Lakers fans who admit they are bad right now, because they are real fans who understand winning is not what being a fan is about. My Knicks were terrible for long time and i regret none of it because being a Knicks fan is amazing. Quit being so ashamed and SHUT UP

      • spthegr8 - Aug 24, 2013 at 10:38 PM

        @blatche
        You must be new to the board if you think Clipper fans aren’t on here bragging about their 1 division championship. If you read any of my previous post, I said they are the better team right now. Their are also clipper fans on this thread bragging about their div chip. Either you aren’t reading the comments or you have the reading comprehension skills of an Inbread Pit Bull Puppy!!

    • timwallace4mpi - Aug 24, 2013 at 12:10 PM

      I agree, when you win a championship they you can declare that best team thing, until then, shut and win.

      • theblatche - Aug 25, 2013 at 6:10 AM

        Umm no.. Stop trying to slide the Lakers the advantage here because Lakers suck and Clippers own them to death right now, completely own them. Another words, your saying Clippers cant be best team until they have rings, thats a crock of shish.; They arent trying to compare histories you idiot. Its about the here and now. Seriously its pathetic crybabies like you who jump ship when there teams suck. Have some pride and man up, your team sucks, the question is, will you stick with them anyway?

    • danwhite0302 - Aug 27, 2013 at 10:37 AM

      I forgot Barnes is a woman beater!! I wonder what he thought about da LAKERS prior to him bein in LA when we were Lifting Another Banner, Compliments of Barnes, Howard n da rest of da Magic lmao

  2. stayhigh_247 - Aug 23, 2013 at 8:55 PM

    somebody tell Matt Barnes he sounds ridiculous. What fan of any team is going to stop rooting for their team because another team has improved? Ok the ugly girl from high school is hot now, so what, I married the homecoming queen and I’m gonna stick with her. You know the Lake Show will be back, and you can bet the farm Matt Barnes won’t still be a Clipper in the not so distant future. Hey Gifthorse, that’s just Matt Barnes looking you in the mouth.

    • theblatche - Aug 24, 2013 at 11:35 AM

      The guy is RIGHT now shut up

  3. ProBasketballPundit - Aug 23, 2013 at 9:10 PM

    I like Matt Barnes the player, but seriously this dude never shuts up. Following him on twitter is like glitter bombing your timeline except instead of glitter it’s misspelled words and trash talk. I can only imagine how he is around his teammates.

  4. ji8888 - Aug 23, 2013 at 9:13 PM

    I sure hope this will jinx the clipper tugboats. Bunch of wanna be players on that team. With a horrible owner. Matt Barnes really is asking to have his team miss out on the playoffs. Which could have them labeled MOST OVERRATED TEAM EVER.

    • gymtruthteller - Aug 23, 2013 at 9:40 PM

      NY Knicks and Nets have that title wrapped up. Clippers are third

      • ji8888 - Aug 24, 2013 at 1:52 AM

        Great… another wagon NBA fan.

    • spthegr8 - Aug 23, 2013 at 10:52 PM

      @ji
      Hard to call them overrated tho. Cuz the only people who really think the clippers are that good are the clipper fans!! IMO, in order to be overrated, you gotta be rated first!! Just Sayin’!!!!

      • ji8888 - Aug 24, 2013 at 1:49 AM

        They’ve been overrated already with the same squad last season…

      • theblatche - Aug 24, 2013 at 11:30 AM

        Say what you want, Clippers are still better lol

    • simpleplan2014 - Aug 24, 2013 at 12:00 AM

      IF the Clips are so overrated, why did we win the PACIFIC DIVISION last season. What did the Lakers win???????????????????????????????? LMFAO

      • mike1209 - Aug 24, 2013 at 12:30 PM

        How many rings do you get for winning a division?

      • spthegr8 - Aug 24, 2013 at 1:47 PM

        @simple
        It is really PATHETIC & sad that, all you have to brag about is a division champ banner( but here you are, boosting & proud ) Holla @ me when you accomplish something of relevancy. Until then…. ESAD!!!

      • theblatche - Aug 25, 2013 at 6:12 AM

        Well then its sadder for you since you cant even brag about that much. Lakers fans, what would you do without your past? Your future is dark so you better keep reminding yourself of your banners hahaha you bums

      • spthegr8 - Aug 25, 2013 at 9:54 AM

        @blatche
        I’ll tell you what’s sad. The fact that ur Knicks are an after thought in the eastern conference. The fact that y’all haven’t won anything since Willis Reed was playing LMFAO!!! Go ESAD!!!!

    • bobfell - Aug 24, 2013 at 12:14 PM

      no most overrated team ever was last years Lakers.
      82 & 0 was what mette claimed
      and how did that team do?

      • spthegr8 - Aug 24, 2013 at 1:51 PM

        @bob
        & just who in the Blue HELL is mette?? Is that Metta’s evil twin, like Mario & Wario???

      • bobfell - Aug 25, 2013 at 12:23 PM

        omg the typo police are out in force.
        You know your team and your fans were bragging about how many championships you would get with your all star lineup and how Howard was going to carry you all once Kobe retired.Howard was a God, and you laughed at the Orlando fans and called them bitter.
        well who’s bitter now beeatch?

      • spthegr8 - Aug 25, 2013 at 1:00 PM

        @bob
        It seems to me your bitter! Seeing how your resorting to name calling. But what should I expect from someone named Bob, who lives in his moms basement & is a Larp for dungeons and dragons!! Your clippers are always gonna be second fiddle cuz your NEVER gonna win a championship!! Y’all are the red headed step children of La( no pun intended Blake Gtiffin a.k.a. Annie )

  5. gymtruthteller - Aug 23, 2013 at 9:39 PM

    Always funny when the bench warmer does the trash talking. The Clippers were a 1st round playoff exit. Not much to brag about there Clippers.

    • simpleplan2014 - Aug 24, 2013 at 12:05 AM

      And what did the Fakers win last year……….LMAO

  6. fearthehoody - Aug 23, 2013 at 9:43 PM

    Clippers run LA 3 years and counting! Clipp nation, rise!

    • spthegr8 - Aug 23, 2013 at 10:47 PM

      @fearthe
      ROTFLMFAO!!! You see, the difference is, while y’all are ” running LA ” as you put it. You still can’t make it outta the first round of the playoffs. We have had title runs that have lasted as long as you have been” running the city “. It’s painfully obvious that the Clippers are the better team right now but once we get some cap space.( Next summer ) Well make some moves cuz that’s what we do. We don’t rebuild… WE RELOAD!! Still LAKESHOW ALL DAY!!!! IMO, you are the better team but the Clippers won’t be able to stake claim on the city until you hang up some banners. & not division champ banners either. The ONLY 1 of those you have ( which should embarrassing to ALL clipper fans ) is currently being used as Toilet paper by the Memphis Grizzles.

      • bobfell - Aug 24, 2013 at 12:13 PM

        still can’t make it out of the 1st round?
        I guess you missed the year before.
        and we claim the city when we punch your ticket every game we play you
        When you cannot beat the other team Guess what?
        the other team owns you.

      • spthegr8 - Aug 24, 2013 at 2:00 PM

        @bob
        Delusional you are. Clipper fans have lil brother syndrome. Never won or done anything, so the second you accomplish something( even if it was ONLY a division tittle ) you feel the need to brag. I guess when you have nothing to brag about, ANYTHING will do!! How LAME!!! LMFAO!!!

      • theblatche - Aug 25, 2013 at 6:15 AM

        Thats the attitude thats gonna make you suck much longer, thinking you can just buy back a dynasty team LOL, Nobody wants to be there, dont you get it? Lebron and Melo arent just gonna go there because your the Lakers, nobody cares

      • spthegr8 - Aug 25, 2013 at 9:59 AM

        @blatche
        We cant all get the big free agent signings like Andrea Bargnani!!! ROTFLMFAO!!! Go ESAD!!!

      • bobfell - Aug 25, 2013 at 12:28 PM

        Oh yes the old Laker “we reload” claim
        How did you reload this year after last years debacle?
        washed up ex Clipper Kaman
        washed up ex Clipper Nick Young
        washed up out of the NBA Jordan Farmar.
        sorry but if that is reloading you are shooting blanks.
        Lakers overall are a year older than last years team average
        good luck with that.

    • kb2408 - Aug 24, 2013 at 1:16 AM

      “Run L.A. 3 years and counting”? Well, the LAKERS won their latest title in 2010….when exactly did the Clips win theirs again?? The LAKERS have run L.A. for the last three decades and counting, sir. Clips fans celebrate 50 win seasons as if they’re equal to a championship. I’d take a title four seasons ago over the “success” the Clips have had recently, my friend.

  7. aoking20 - Aug 23, 2013 at 9:47 PM

    clippers have there best season ever get eliminated in first round of playoffs
    lakers have one of there worst seasons ever and get eliminated in the first round of the playoffs
    so how are the clippers better again lol because they had one good regular season lmao gimme a break call me up when they get 16 titles

    • bobfell - Aug 24, 2013 at 12:10 PM

      they are better because they swept the lakers during the season u dummy.

  8. onlyavoice - Aug 23, 2013 at 9:52 PM

    Lakers Maybe Get an 8th Seed, Lose In The 1st Round.
    Clips Will Win 50 + Games & Get Eliminated In The 1st Round.
    Lakers Are A Dynasty,
    Clips Are The West’s Version Of The Knicks.

    • adamsjohn714 - Aug 23, 2013 at 10:06 PM

      Lakers maybe get to 11th in the West. Clippers are going to be really good as long as Rivers doesn’t try to use Mullens for anything except cleaning up the locker room.

      • theblatche - Aug 25, 2013 at 6:16 AM

        Clippers are set

  9. noaseo - Aug 23, 2013 at 9:58 PM

    As a Lakers fan since 1983…I have to agree. The Lakers are done. Sad day in LA when the lowly clippers are the new big thing ….

  10. friscog415 - Aug 23, 2013 at 10:20 PM

    Matt Barnes…. Smh. What a irrelevant, horrible 30-35% shooting douchebag. Besides “not funny” Dwight Howard and weirdo Metta World Stinks, he’s easily one of the most annoying benchwarmers in the NBA.

  11. losanginsight - Aug 23, 2013 at 10:59 PM

    No one on flop city should say a word until they go back to back to back to back. Maybe then they will get a bit of respect in LA. That will never happen so they might as well keep it shut til Doc is run out of town after 3 years with no #ships.

    • bobfell - Aug 24, 2013 at 12:33 PM

      No laker fan should talk smack when their team is getting jacked every time they play the Clippers.
      “I own you mutha”
      “Oh really? well get up off the floor so i can smack you down again”
      I guess Sonny Liston was a better fighter because he won his titles before Ali

  12. hildezero - Aug 23, 2013 at 11:28 PM

    Laker fans are joke. There just like Mexico soccer fans, thinking that Mexico is better than the US.

    • asimonetti88 - Aug 23, 2013 at 11:56 PM

      Wow… this has to be a joke, and you make me feel dirty because I HATE Mexico’s soccer team, but you’re joking, right? The whole comment is a joke?

    • badintent - Aug 24, 2013 at 2:53 AM

      Laker fans are a lot of things, late to come, early to leave(pull out), but making a comparison to Mexico soccer is like blaming the Clippers success on the NFL not having a team in LA.Ridockulous !

  13. raycharlesj - Aug 23, 2013 at 11:36 PM

    How about ACTUALLY!!! winning at Least a western conference finals FIRST!!! Barnes before claiming you are the best LA team, “Might” win something doesn’t count you have not done anything significant yet!!!! Have you even gotten out of the first round yet???? NO!!!!!!!!!! Shut up and go play. Just like the Lakers you have to worry about the Spurs, OKC, Memphis, etc. Last season the Damn WARRIORS!!! had your team on the ropes!!! Shut the hell UP!!!! and win before your talk.

    • theblatche - Aug 24, 2013 at 11:32 AM

      Dude, they ARE the best LA team, and I’m not even a Clippers or Lakers fan. Dont be so stupid, Clippers will be even better this year with the Thunder and Spurs ready to slow down. Spurs core too old and Thunder lost their #3 guy, Clippers & Grizz own the West

      • spthegr8 - Aug 25, 2013 at 10:13 AM

        @blatche
        The more & more you post. The more you show us all how little you know about basketball!!

      • bobfell - Aug 25, 2013 at 12:32 PM

        funny spthegr8 i was gonna say the same thing about you
        now be a good little laker and go away and let the adults have a conversation

      • raycharlesj - Aug 25, 2013 at 5:00 PM

        Actually The Warriors are the Best team in LA when they travel down there to play!!! Ha ha ha ha They owed the Clippers last season. Ha ha ha

      • bobfell - Aug 26, 2013 at 9:52 AM

        @Raycharles You are pretty funny. Clippers vs GS in LA.
        GS squeaked by Clips 114 to 110 in Nov
        the next game in LA Clippers DESTROYED them, went up by close to 40 and won 115 by 89. That was the game where Blake singlehandedly outscored the whole Warrior team in the first quarter 14 to 12.
        Warriors were not the best team in LA
        maybe watch the games before commenting.

    • bobfell - Aug 24, 2013 at 12:26 PM

      and to the idiot who claims Clippers have not been out of the first round yet,
      I guess he missed last year when they beat Memphis in the first round and lost to the Spurs in the 2nd(last year, 2012, not last season)

      • spthegr8 - Aug 24, 2013 at 2:05 PM

        @bob
        You didn’t lose too the Spurs!! They DOMINATED you for 4 games & SWEEPT y’all outta the playoffs. The clippers are the better team right now. I hate to say it but its a fact. It’s also a fact that y’all have NEVER & I repeat NEVER even seen the conference finals unless its on the television. & I’m not hating. Those are the FACTS…. Jack!!

      • bobfell - Aug 25, 2013 at 12:38 PM

        Sad that the laker fans are reduced to constantly posting erroneous “facts”
        such as the Clippers have never made it out of the first round.
        then when you attempt to correct them, they refuse to acknowledge their lies and instead change the subject.
        so sad but then when your life is over you are reduced to such activities to try
        to find meaning in all the emptiness…

      • raycharlesj - Aug 25, 2013 at 4:56 PM

        Oh they have gotten out of the first round??? WOW what a GREAT!! ACOMMPLISHMENT!!! for them that is. Keep that up and in a few more decades you might have a chance at making the NBA finals!!!!! ha ha ha ha

  14. legendsports124 - Aug 23, 2013 at 11:56 PM

    Barnes is having fun with Laker fans, its not the end of the world.

  15. messwilliams51 - Aug 24, 2013 at 12:02 AM

    Sounds to me like envy..or sour grapes on the part of Matt Barnes. I’ve actually lost respect for him after reading this… don’t candy-coat it Mr. Barnes just say what’s on your mind.. # borderlinePathetic

  16. socalsports1985 - Aug 24, 2013 at 12:12 AM

    Soo funny when trash players act like they have a reason to talk. Just sit in the bench and keep pretending you ever had a impact on the game besides being a distraction. #SMH

  17. alqj24 - Aug 24, 2013 at 12:59 AM

    I don’t mind the Clippers’ success, but their fan base is acting is if the Lakers will be the worst team in the league and that the Clippers have won the WCF or even the Finals. After all, both teams were eliminated in the same round.

    • bobfell - Aug 24, 2013 at 12:23 PM

      Look at your own fan base.
      Metta claimed last year that the Lakers would win more games than anyone.
      How did that team do again?
      Clipper fans see reality. Lakers have a great history, but with the new CBA their future is limited. No good young talent, core of the team mid to late 30’s
      Clippers are built for the future. Lot’s of good young talent.

  18. kb2408 - Aug 24, 2013 at 1:02 AM

    The LAKERS always have, and always will, own Los Angeles…the Clips, and all that “lob city” crap, are just a passing fad.

    • bobfell - Aug 24, 2013 at 12:18 PM

      didn’t own la last year
      Clippers smacked them around all 4 games. Clippers built for the future Lakers have no future. 40 year old Nash, 35 year old Kobe with a torn achilles, old worn out, no cap space to add a superstar. 74 million in cap holds for next year.

  19. mightbegoingtohellforthis - Aug 24, 2013 at 1:50 AM

    REMINDER: The Lakers are 97-33 vs the Clippers all time.
    The Lakers have won 16 championships, the Clippers have won 0.
    The Lakers have won 32 Conference Titles, the Clippers have won 0.
    The Lakers have won their division 23 times, the Clippers have won 1 time.

        Apparently, it helped them to equal the flippers with a first round exit. The difference is, that was definitely considered a down year for the Lakers whereas the flippers were coming off the most impressive season in franchise history.

        Oh really? How many games does the league spot you because of your franchise history?
        roflmao!

    Matt Barnes got his 1st multi-year deal after being in the league for almost 15 years now lol.. He hasn’t won nothing in anything so what does the Clippers being the best team in town really mean? Lakers don’t give a jack about being best in town, they care about being the best in the World.. That’s how short sighted those Clipper fans and players are.. We have a reason to be prideful, Clippers until yesterday have been the league’s disgrace

    • bobfell - Aug 24, 2013 at 12:39 PM

      Well your team was not best in the world last year and has less of a chance of being best in the world this year. And the year after that you have Nash, Sacre under contract for 10 mil and 74 mil in cap holds with a 60 mil dollar cap
      So your future ain’t lookin too good
      Meanwhile the Clippers have a good looking future
      It being the best in the world is all you care about , prepare for disappointment.

    LOL. Clippers will always suck

    • theblatche - Aug 24, 2013 at 11:33 AM

      Actually, no. Lakers do suck, Clippers are top 3 team in West

      • spthegr8 - Aug 24, 2013 at 2:09 PM

        @blatche
        If the clippers are a top 3 team in the west, then they shrunk the west down overnight & didn’t tell the rest of the league!!

      • theblatche - Aug 24, 2013 at 9:17 PM

        sptheGr8, it’s really sad listening to some of you Clueless Lakers babies. There are some standup Lakers fans who admit they are bad right now, because they are real fans who understand winning is not what being a fan is about. My Knicks were terrible for long time and i regret none of it because being a Knicks fan is amazing. Quit being so ashamed and SHUT UP

      • spthegr8 - Aug 25, 2013 at 10:02 AM

        @blatche
        Cool Story, bro. About your Knicks. Cool story!!

      • bobfell - Aug 25, 2013 at 12:45 PM

        this is why everyone hates laker fans. They cannot acknowledge reality, they run their mouths, talk smack and then don’t back it up. Last year was going to be a championship year, the first of either a back to back or 3 peat.
        Reality was they barely made the playoffs
        Now their team is coming off injuries, older, still with the same coach who plays those old injured players alot of minutes
        and yet they talk smack about other teams.
        smh…

      • spthegr8 - Aug 25, 2013 at 2:34 PM

        @bob
        If I cant have ur love I’ll take your hate. The reality is the clippers ARE better than the Lakers. It’s also reality that the clippers are still not a top 4 team in the west. You keep talking about reality but your living in a dream world. Face the facts and get over yourself. You should be use too SUCKING!!! Your a clipper fan. C’mon bob or bill. Whatever your name is.

      • bobfell - Aug 25, 2013 at 3:50 PM

        Anyone who does not think the Clippers are a top 3 team in the West needs a reality check. As in you.
        Clippers weakness last year was a poor coach who could not make simple adjustments. The Clippers were up 2 0 on Memphis and then memphis made adjustments. Clippers did not. Clippers continued to walk the ball up the floor when they were a far better team in transition. As a result they lost the next 4 games.
        The Coaching problem has been solved. Along with the lack of outside shooting those were the two most glaring weaknesses in the Clippers.
        They were a 3 seed last year, no reason to believe they are not better .
        But you go on your little bitter hateful rampage, i understand that until Kobe is gone the lakers can never be relevant so that has got to hurt
        ouch man.

      • bobfell - Aug 25, 2013 at 4:00 PM

        and let’s go over reality one more time
        Kobe 35, coming off an achilles tear, no defense
        Nash 39, chronically injured, no defense
        Gasol, also chronically injured, cannot run the floor on bad wheels
        Kaman, washed up ex Clipper,
        Nick Young, another washed up ex Clipper
        reality sucks for you.
        Oh and you got 74 million in capholds for next year so no room to add anyone to that powerful roster of old man Nash & Robert Sacre

      • spthegr8 - Aug 25, 2013 at 6:38 PM

        @bob
        Here is a little reality check for ya. Your clippers are good..BUUUUUUUUUUTTTTTT They are NOT a top 3 team in the west. The Spurs are still better and So are the Thunder and so are the Grizzles and so are the Warriors and maybe even the rockets. So, while you have it better than us. Their are ALOT of teams in the west that are BETTER than your clippers!! Now that’s a reality check for that A$$!!!!

  22. elcapitanfiscal - Aug 24, 2013 at 11:39 AM

    Actually, yes. Clippers have been bad since ever. They got bounded first round, and they haven’t played yet this year do no you can’t call them a top 3 team with the warriors, rockets, Memphis and okc there also..oh and the spurs who i think beat them?

    • bobfell - Aug 24, 2013 at 12:40 PM

      Clippers are a top 3 team and have made it past the first round
      You are just a bitter hater and are blinded by your hate.

    • bobfell - Aug 26, 2013 at 10:07 AM

      Using your logic
      “they haven’t played yet this year do no you can’t call them a top 3 team”
      Also means that they are undefeated by all those teams you mention.
      Sooooooo
      You cannot have it both ways, claim that other teams have beat the Clippers and then say they haven’t played yet.
      Honestly i cannot believe you could be so ignorant.
      And to say GS owned the Clips in LA last year when the Clippers lost a close game by 4 points and then DESTROYED the Warriors the only other time they played in LA(led by 103 to 64 at the end of the 3rd quarter and won 115 to 89!!!)
      You should remember that last game that is where GS coach Mark Jackson cried like a baby to the press about the Clippers disrespecting his team by running up the score on them. ROFLMAO!!!
      and you think the Warriors were better in LA?????
      smh….

      • bobfell - Aug 26, 2013 at 10:11 AM

        it was a long night for the Warriors, who slipped four games behind the Clippers in the Western Conference standings. Coach Mark Jackson got so frustrated at one point late in the third quarter after an alley-oop dunk by a giddy DeAndre Jordan, he came onto the court and just glared at the Clippers’ bench

        we also did it without our starting shooting guard and without Jamal Crawford.
        yeah those warriors were no match in LA. maybe look up the facts next time.

      • spthegr8 - Aug 26, 2013 at 1:34 PM

        You think your team is better than they really are. Your a homer and I have no problem with that. Your just in for a rude awakening when the season starts!!

      • bobfell - Aug 28, 2013 at 7:20 PM

        those are merely facts. Something u laker fans do not yet have a handle on.

      • spthegr8 - Aug 28, 2013 at 10:19 PM

        @Bob
        We don’t have a handle on the facts??? You need to get a grip Bob and except mediocrity. Cuz it fits you well. You have been mediocre for SOOOOOOO LOOOOOONG, that the little bit of success you guy’s have had, has gone STR8 to your head. You’d think after ALL these years of losing, you would have found away to deal with it!!

    • bobfell - Aug 28, 2013 at 7:23 PM

      If you think dominating the other team is a 1 & 1 record where your lone victory is by 4 points and in your loss you were down nearly 40 points after 3 quarters
      Well, that is just idiotic.
      Typical laker fan logic

  23. whytheyhateus - Aug 24, 2013 at 11:55 AM

    Matt Barnes is one of the all time great Clippers

    ~Clippers Fans
