    What have these guys “earned”, a first round banner? With all Balmer’s money and that’s the best uniform you could come up with?

    Jenkins running out of plausible marketing campaigns? “Earned” is really curious considering what they just did.

    The TMZ report published on Monday detailed a lawsuit filed by Johnny Wilkes alleging that Jerry West owed him $2.5 million for his role in helping the Clippers land Kawhi Leonard. The NBA, as reported, has deemed it concerning enough to investigate.

    they'll get cleared, but i believe parts of this guy's story. i'm sure he asked for cash, one way or another, and was told he'd be taken care of. but that can mean different things to different people. so, will west be in trouble? no. but i do think it's nice for the league to investigate a non-laker tampering-type claim for a change.

    i mean, they sent scouts to all of leonard's games the year before. just shameless. meanwhile, magic can't say he likes giannis's game or would like it if he were a laker.

    anyway, enjoy the street lights.

    Jokes aside, I can’t imagine Jerry West would be incompetent enough to leave a paper trail of evidence proving cap circumvention. I’d be very surprised if anything came from this.

    I know there was some kind of fallout between us and Jerry, but why does he hate us again?

    So disappointed to hear this from West. And yet they went out in the 2nd round and we won it all, yeah, real s*** show. Sorry, but that’s justice from the basketball gods, the Clippers are cursed and they got what they deserve.

    Absolutely.
    I also think that audio may be the tip of the iceberg. A warning shot letting the Clippers know he kept records on everything.

    Yeah I just actually listened to the full recording, and it’s more interesting than the “Lakers are a ****show” headline.

    I’m more intrigued with West telling the guy he wants to meet in private and have a dinner so he can pay respects for all his help.

    Just WOW Jerry. Ballmer's money bought so much media slant, not to mention your salary, that You believed or just took up the Clippers' company narrative that the Lakers were a "s*** show". And big thanks to Magic for that impression at that time. His vision I truly believe turned this franchise around with the start of it being him helping land LeBron James. But what he did with his no warning resignation and immediate comments and follow up comments ..... was pure sabotage out of spite.

    So who is Johnny Wilkes? Well here's his Facebook page.

    Right. Definitely sounds like there was something going on there. We will see how legal it was.
