  1. What a huge disappointment. "Spiders" was right there and everybody would have loved it! I do think the new script and font are okay, but the G-ball logo is terrible. They also blew their opportunity to adopt a more unique color scheme.
  2. I can assure you, no actual longtime Clipper fan expects to "waltz into a title." This is a franchise that's mostly known for futility and melting down in the playoffs, not "waltzing into" success. Don't confuse the bandwagoners who hopped on for Kawhi and PG - who clearly had no idea what they were getting into with this team - with the real fans. I agree that last year's Clippers were too cocky. Truth be told, I always felt deep down like they were tempting fate. In retrospect, I would actually blame Doc Rivers more than anyone else for that. He's way more arrogant than he should be with his resume, so it shouldn't be a surprise that the teams he coaches usually turn out to be cocky flat-track bullies who can't back it up in the playoffs. Lob City was like that too. The change in mindset under Lue has been very noticeable in the playoffs and I don't think it's a coincidence. As far as the return on investment goes: the Clippers have finally gotten over the second-round hump after 51 long years, so while it's not as good as winning a championship, most fans are still happy at the moment. If Kawhi leaves (which seems unlikely, but you never know), then yes, the Kawhi/PG era will have been a failed experiment. Otherwise, it's too early to call it one way or the other. I think I'll stop here since I doubt people want to read any more of my homer rants about the Clippers.
  3. It's not an "own," it's legitimately weird to see a Raptors fan trashing Kawhi this much when he got you guys a ring after years of playoff heartbreak. I would be grateful for any player who could get the Clippers a ring even if they left the following season.
  4. This makes no sense. The comeback against Utah was already in progress before Kawhi got injured. If the Jazz couldn't close out the Clippers without Kawhi, they definitely weren't going to do it with Kawhi.
  5. You mean the same guy who's the only reason the Raptors aren't still solely known as "LeBronto" and the team Vince bailed on?
  6. Just getting to the conference finals is already better than anything CP3 ever accomplished as a Clipper.
  7. The Clippers' all-time best player was in a suite wearing street clothes all series, so in a way, you're technically right.
  8. Philip Rivers famously played the whole 2007 AFC Championship Game on a torn ACL and meniscus, six days after the injury happened.
  9. Paul George might not be top 10, but I'd say he at least qualifies as a superstar. It is kind of ironic that the much-maligned "Playoff P" is the last superstar standing in the playoffs.
  10. I'll never forgive Selig for the Expos screwjob, but Manfred is a clown.
  11. This is such a circus at this point. How does Manfred still have a job?
  12. This Clippers team is legitimately one of the most resilient teams I've ever seen in the NBA. Three starters out injured, a fourth starter still recovering from a knee injury, on the road facing elimination, and they win by 14. Doc Rivers must be punching the air right now.
  13. To me, their new wordmark is very similar to the Rams' wordmark, and the primary logo has a similar aesthetic to the Rams' ram-head logo due to how simplified and almost abstract it is. The difference is that the Elks didn't cram in a bunch of gradients or make a poorly-designed monogram their primary logo (which is why it's ultimately more successful than the Rams' rebrand). Hopefully their new uniforms won't be total clownsuits like the crap that the Rams are wearing.
  14. I don't mind the decision to go with special uniforms for the game. I do mind how hideously ugly they are.
  15. Watching Tatis Jr. and Vlad Jr. dominate the league makes me feel old for remembering the days when their fathers were teammates on the Expos.
