The smoke has settled, the dust has cleared and the trade has finally processed. In a moment where we never thought this day would actually happen, where the Los Angeles Clippers would land the marquee player versus their intra-arena rival. Where the Clippers would be the new talk of the town versus their intra-arena rival. Where the Clippers would wrestle the power away from their intra-arena rival become the new Kings of L.A.?
Not so fast my friend.
Yes, the Clippers will be much improved and will have a buzz like none other. But the Lakers are still the Lakers, so let’s chill on the ridiculous hype that will surround this team beginning on Christmas Day.
What we can do is celebrate arguably the biggest moment in the history of this moribund and decrepit franchise. We have no idea how long this will last or if this experiment will even work, so let’s just band together and pray that “The Clip Show” can escape its usual wrath of injuries and evolve into the greatness that could be “Lob City.” Just imagine CP3, Chauncey Billups and Eric Bledsoe throwing oops to Blake and DeAndre…can’t wait.
