    There is plenty of room on the Clipper bandwagon if that's your preference. Ballmer is a clown. He's so goofy / odd that I'm having a difficult time thinking of a comparison. I know Jeanie has made mistakes and has gotten her share of bad press recently. Meanwhile, everyone in the media is stroking Ballmer having nothing whatsoever to do with his greasing palms I'm sure. With all her flaws I'll still take Jeanie all day if Ballmer is the option.

    I know some find his enthusiasm charming but I think it's corny as hell.

    That video was a total fail with Chuck the fruit loops condor. Spend some money on a new mascot Ballmer. He can make him look like himself. Since he looks like a fool anyhow.

    Cool, they'll finally have a place to hang all the banners they've won and display all their HOF player jerseys.

    Honestly they do not justify a stadium. They're not a draw, there's already an alternative for concerts, and there's already an alternative for other sporting events with the new NFL stadium. Even in LA three stadiums in one city is overkill. A stadium in City of Industry or Orange County makes way more sense.

    The Angels are looking for a new stadium as well apparently. They should partner with them.

    Or ideally move to Seattle. Or Anchorage.

    I doubt the new stadium even gets approval. Apparently there's serious environmental issues that'll stem from building a new stadium and the traffic that it'll cause will be a massive headache for the city of LA. 100% agree that getting a stadium in Orange County makes a f*** ton more sense. Or San Diego. Or Riverside. Or Palmdale. All the s***ty places basically that Kawhi and PG love to rep basically.

    Won't be viable till 2024 when they're Staples lease is up.

    So it's 2019 and Kawhi/Paula have 3 year deals....carry the 13 and subtract the 2...uh wait, will those 2 even be there when the doors open up?

    Even if they are, that state of the art facility will have some killer floor seats that I'm sure George and Kawhi will put to good use...while in street clothes.

    Yeah this part is literally laughable..construction won't even start until 2021, the year that KaLie and Fraud George can become FA's and possibly bolt to that "other" LA franchise

    And this stadium won't be ready until 2024...who knows what the Clippers will look like then?

    Go right ahead and build a state of the art stadium....that nobody will go to?

    I wanna see them try and charge Laker ticket prices in this new stadium....double dare em...

    The greatest day in Clipper history, and the majority of questions in the press conference are about the Lakers lol.

    Actually, Ballmer just as much fell into his situation as Jeanie did. He is far from the business savant that many think he is. Since he left Microsoft, the company is up 350%. He made a series of stupid decisions while he was in charge. There's a reason why Samsung and Apple rule the phone world today. But let me put it another way:

    Clippers gonna clip

    Why YOU gotta be that way? Jeannie got to where she is in life by learning to run her fathers business. She has done more than an admirable job at that, the Lakers are one of the top 10 sports franchises in the WORLD. I think I just saw a net worth stated of around 3.7 Billion Dollars. Now, she gets to learn how to run a basketball team. She is a lot smarter than anyone is giving her credit for and writing her off so nonchalantly really strikes of sexism and what is wrong with men in this country. Ballmer has simply been a cheerleader all his life. Yeah, he is pretty good at it but I highly doubt anyone at Microsoft who was an actual engineer wanted to have much to do with him. Jerry Buss drew me in, he was someone you wanted to support. Ballmer repels me, he is a clown and a showman. The second coming of PT Barnum. If you think he is great, go support him. Don't expect many around here to want to join you.

    Can't degrade the Kobe thread, so this s*** belongs here instead.

    Since I'm being fitted as a Rob hater, I might as well embrace it. I blame Rob for this one...but I'm happy the good doc talked Kobe off of it. Verbally committing to the clippers?!? Damn, that trial must have had Kob hitting the Booze hard.

    hmmm hard to just "fall" into balmer situation, not like hes born into it. Jeanie does a great job as the revenue generating part but as a person making personnel hiring decisions shes been terrible, it large reason why we're in the mess we were in prior to James coming, we'd be a laughing stock of the league it it werent for him
