So here's all the action. A couple of you have seen me in the Pub already, but that place seems strangely underpopulated. :confused:

As you may have noticed from the other post I just made, I'm a :clippers: fan; I was born in Anaheim when they played used to play in the Convention Centre. What - they're not good enough even to have their own stadium anymore?!?!

Idiot owner aside. :mad:

When I lived in Bloomington I was friends with a guy who was a lifelong Clippers fan. The first time he told me that, I said, "Ooh, I'm sorry."

Interesting guy; he was from Long Beach, said he used to live in a pretty rough neighborhood, but was never as scared there as he was walking around downtown Indy. :confused:

Yeah, I can relate to that, strangely enough...at the end of last year I went back to OC, and the whole time I was there and walking around the streets, I had the strangest feeling of invincibility - I felt like no matter what happened to me, nothing could hurt me. :shrug: Very odd.

A Clippers fan, eh?

I have a question for you then. Try to be unbiased.

Who's better, Brand or J.O.?

Over on a Kings board that was debated, but they're Kings fans, they don't watch either team closely. (Plus Kings fans are stoopid... j/k)

Welcome to the board, by the way. Post early and post often. :flirt:

I suspect Mark Jackson is your all-time favorite Clipper...

Really guys, it has to be Swen Nater.

Does Billy Knight count? The Clippers were in Buffalo then.

Seriously however, last month when I was in SoCal, we visited my cousins in Long Beach - they are very involved with a predominantly Cambodian church in a rough area of LB. I felt safe there. But my commuter train goes right through Michael Finley's hometown/ suburb (Maywood), and if I wasn't on a train there I wouldn't feel safe.

Is this an early christmas gift for you, or what?

I'm not a huge fan of Newble, but I admit I'm curious. Did anyone with "sources" ever hear any more about that Newble/Pollard swap?

:nod:

Actually...I never knew that he was a Clip, but if he was... hell yeah!!!! I first heard of him when he landed in SLC (I currently live in SW Utah and I'll be a huge :jazz: fan at least until they finally win a championship...) and I really liked him. Incidentally, I also consider Donyell Marshall a decent reason to respect the Bulls nowadays.

Hrm...Elton Brand or Jermaine O'neal? Mmmph, tough call...I don't know a great deal about either; but from what I do know, I'd guess they're about even, really.

Everyone loves Donyell here in Toronto...he's "Mr. Consistency" - unlike most Raptors players people have grown to know (*cough* VINCE).

You're on a roll with your anti-Rifleman comments lately.
