With Rasual and his team (the Los Angeles Clippers) in mind, here’s what you have to do to win:

In the comment section below, tell us what memorable game, play or player comes to mind when you think about the “Los Angeles Clippers and why? (If it’s a play, please be as specific, in terms of who was involved and when it occurred, as possible.)

    The most memorable thing about the Clippers is they always trying there hardest no matter what they young but will kill later on

  • Adam

    Blake Griffin’s dunk over Mozgov yesterday.
    Dunk Of the Year. Best thing outta Clippertown for a long time.

  • FleurDeLeap

    I would have to say when Eric Gordon got a posterization dunk on the Spurs. I myself am a Spurs fan, but that showed me the Clippers have some strong, young talent in Eric Gordon. Should be proud they have him.

  • Mike

    The most memorable play that comes to mind for the Clippers was the full court pass to Lamar Odom who caught in mid-air and alley oop’ed it to Darius Miles backwards. I remember that being the number one play on Sportscenter and it being shown over and over. I had never seen anything like that and will probably not forget that anytime soon.

  • Matt Munson

    1999 NBA Draft Rd. 1 Pick: #4 LAMAR ODOM

  • romana bholat

    when Baron Davis made that very last-second buzzer beater over the Celtics. as a Celtics fan, i was heart-broken, but i have to give credit where it is due. that shot was amazing, & BD was relishing in it.

  • jc_423

    Blake Griffin!!! His draft gave the clippers and their fans something to be excited about now and for the future. He also has changed LA culture to make the clippers exciting and revelant.

  • Neon

    Last December, the Celtics came into town looking to bully the Clips out of their own floor. Rondo was in EJ’s face all game and Garnett was treating DJ like he was Charlie V. The vets had the young guys’ back as Bop hit two 3’s and Baron hit DJ with a no-look oop. With the game tied during the final timeout, BD demanded the ball. Bop inbounded it to BD who hit a contested jumper at the buzzer to win the game. I never heard the Clipper Nation so loud… until Blake threw it down on Mozgov last night.

  • Erik Franke

    I would go with the 2001-2002 teams. With Richardson, Odom, Miles, Brand. They were such a high energy team. Made it so much fun to watch them, because you never knew what they would do next. Plus, I always loved Q-Rich and Miles’ “double fist head tap”. I loved it. I used to do it all the time while I played ball.

  • Tyler Whitcomb

    Michael Olowakandi comes to mind in the fact that with a number 1 pick- this is the crap that they draft. This is why they have been one of the worst franchises in NBA history. However, Blake and Gordon make things look like there going in a good direction.

  • Tyler Whitcomb

    Chris Kaman or Lou Vaught both from West Michigan.

  • max

    I would go with the moment in which someone actually kept a straight face just thinking of the thought of having to think of a memorable moment when it comes to the Clippers. But for the heck of it, I’ll go with Blake Griffin against the Knicks…

  • Daniel

    Wen griffin got drafted. Having someone come into the organization with serious star potential gave fans something to look forward to, even though the first year was a shame…

  • http://Twitter.com/dearcrystal Crystal Miller

    The most memorable moment of the Los Angeles Clipper season thus far was during this past Saturday night game, when Rookie Blake Hriffin scored an overwhelming FOURTY FOUR points. Blake Griffin brings an overwhelming light to the Clipper team and proves the point that rookie do know what they’re doing.

  • Jer dawg

    When I think Clippers I think of Bill Walton in street clothes and Joe Bryant dressed in his uniform. Much like how their offsprings are currently playing for the LA Lakers.

  • annie

    Vladimir Radmanovic having his best season and the Clips going to the playoffs.

  • paul kamikawa

    Most memorable memory about Clippers was the year Larry Brown and Mark Jackson got the Clips into playoffs. Don’t think it was coincidence that one of the best coachess of all time and one of the better PG in the 90′s got the Clippers in. Haven’t been as good since.

  • Will H.

    I would say even though they’ve been a losing team, it was great when Davis, Miles, & Dooling made them exciting to watch, and even now as they have Gordon & Griffin.

  • http://twitter.com/Chris_Barrio C MONEY

    When i think of the Clips and whats memorable I think of the Draft(s). And all of the #1 picks they have had without producing a defining STAR in the NBA.But that being said I think they got it right with Griffin cause last night against my Knicks was very memorable. But it has to be the #1 over all players drafted and not panning out.

    Its ok follow me I’m contagious!

  • Zamir

    The most memorable game was Blake Griffin 44 points game vs NY he had a bunch of highlights and beat eric gordans record with most points by rookie on the clippers now held by blake griffin even though came in a loss the clippers have something good developing on there team

  • ampd

    the clippers will always remind me of the buffalo braves back with ernie d and mcadoo…. those were the glory days…..

  • Karim H

    Blakes performance last night. 44 pts, 15 rebs, 7 asts? thats a stat line that few others can get. the clips may be losing, but they won big on Griffin.

  • @cwondertwon

    It has to be Eric Gordon over Tim Duncan! Posterize

  • http://twitter.com/dmngz Edgar Dominguez

    Double Alley-Oop

    I think it was 2000, Sacramento Kings v LA Clippers.. a minute left, Clippers pulled away from the Kings..

    Peja had scored and Sean Rooks took the ball out, launched it up to Lamar who caught it at the freethrow line, twisted in the air and Ooped it up to D-Miles. I Jumped off my seat and was in awe..

    That will always be one of my favorite alley-oops of all time..

  • http://twitter.com/kf25sull Sully

    Blake Griffin against the Knicks on Nov. 20th, 2010. This game brings hope to the Clippers franchise when a rookie is able to drop 40 and compete with an all-star forward like A’mare. This year he has shown his ability to rebound and score, but more importantly to never give up on a play. He has an unmatched work ethic and keeps the Clippers in the game through hustle plays. The kid is bound to be an all-star if he keeps playing like he did last night.

  • Jason Litton

    I’m sorry I don’t recall any… if you can you are a better fan than I am.

    Blake Griffin’s dunk over Mozgov yesterday.
    Dunk Of the Year probably.
    Blake is the guy, who doesn’t hold back.

    20th november – blake griffin. The clippers are a forgetable team, which always underachive, but now there’s a real reason to watch them – and be scared of them. Eric Gordon and Blake Griffin are future stars, and my god does the clippers need thoese.

  • http://www.tgdojo.tumblr.com Morgan Bryant

    In my opinion (and seeing that the clippers are having another season to forget), I think the most memorable moment/game in clippers history would be Blake Griffin’s debut vs. Portland. It had all the excitement that we’ve come to expect in a Clipper’s blowout, plus the added hopefulness of Griffin finally suiting up to play. Clippers fans (if they exist) have another player with great potential to invest all their hopes into.

  • tinchek

    My favorite memory about the Clippers is the 2005-06 playoffs. Their regular season was inconsistent and when the playoffs started they were pretty much under the radar. But when Brand and Cassel started ballin’…really those were the days for the organization, great chemistry. Phoenix barely beat them. I remember a photo of their pregame huddle led by Cassel, they were so focused and full of energy. I really hope their luck changes soon, now that they have Blake Griffin, and continue where the 2005-06 Clippers stopped.

  • Daud Ali

    On December 29, 2009 it was a game to remember, CELTICS v. CLIPPERS. Intense game. Baron Davis drove into the lane and passed it Butler down the lane who hit a 3pt to tie the game. Few seconds left, Celtics in-bounded & Rondo was fouled for two shots & could win it for them. Crowd was live & Rondo missed both free-throws! Clippers have a chance at a win. Butler in-bounds to Davis who has Rondo & R.Allen guarding him. He turns and makes the 3 pointer at the buzzer to win it! Never forget that game.

  • http://www.twitter.com/clearheatvision Raj

    The most exciting thing for most non-Clipper fans was the potential that Blake Griffin has for his team. This power dunk over the Knicks’ Watson on 11/20/2010 is the best Clippers play ever in the modern era: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kVVV-I2stk

  • Hong

    Blake Griffin alone is worth the price of admission! LAC is always cursed with high big men draft picks. I hope Griffin breaks the curse and leads the Clips to the playoffs.

  • Hong

    Blake Griffin fast break spin dunk yesterday against the Knicks alone is worth the price of admission. The kid has amazing talent. I hope Griffin breaks the Clippers curse of failed big men drafted high.

  • peter

    My most memorable moment with the Clippers was in 2008 where Cuttino sunk the three pointer after the drive and dish. It felt as though it was out of reach, but the lineup had changed to include shooters on the perimeter. They had spread the floor and Mobley was on the far wing. The D was pretty tight but somehow the dish was on cue despite the hard angle. All Cuttino did was spot and and it went straight in- the way most shooters do without hesitation.

  • MBE18

    I am a die hard Knicks fan and was mad they traded Mark Jackson to the Clippers. I remember the game the Clippers played against the Knicks the next year, Jackson hit a game clinching jump shot and did the shimmy dance. I was pissed!

  • Balher

    Honestly I remember the days when the Clippers were seeming to be on the right track. Then came the game were Shawn Livingston had a horrific knee injury. From there the Clips suffered their usual bumps (after making the playoffs that year and falling apart since). But with Blake Griffin doing this http://www.slamonline.com/online/media/slam-tv/2010/11/slamadadays-blake-griffin-over-the-ny-knicks/ (thanks SLAM) on a nightly basis. Things are starting to look up for the Clips.

  • Gabe

    Without a Doubt, the most memorable Clippers moment for me is Blake Griffin shattering the rim again and again, most notably last night! What a beast! it is as if he is putting the anger, resentment and shame that is brought to the Clippers franchise into every single ferocious Dunk. Although they may be 1-13, he wins small, individual moments where everyone who witnesses his outbursts feel proud to be Clippers fans.

  • thalilbigkahuna

    When I think of the Clippers today, Blake Griffin immediately comes to mind. Not only because of his amazing play and jaw-dropping dunks, but because of what he represents for the Clippers franchise. With a player like Griffin the Clippers future is brighter than it has been in a long time, and I look forward to watching Griffin and an exciting Clippers team perform well in the years to come.

  • KDeezy

    When I think of the LA Clippers, I always think of Michael Olowakandi. The Clips selected the 7′, 270 lber that they thought would become the next Hakeem Olajuwon that they selected with the 1st overall pick in 1998. Except Olowakandi never spent the time working on his offense or defense to become even close to being Olajuwon. They could have picked Dirk, Pierce, Jamison, Bibby, or Carter; but the Clippers picked a player that turned out to be a complete bust – which is reflective of their franchise, great potential but never works, ever.

  • Saku 39

    Tom Tolbert epitomizes the Clippers to me. Neither is known for playing good basketball, but the levity they add to the game (and league) makes them endearing.

  • telephone don

    Definitely Shaun Livingston’s career damaging injury. His knee was out of place when u looked at it. He could have been at least very solid, but thats just the way things go for the clippers. Things always go bad like that.

  • http://N/A Skippa

    big blake on mosgov. ever heard of a trampoline? ever heard of an aggressive hungry buffalo on growth hormones ? imagine the two combined, mixed with a bit of red, a dash of white, a speck of blue, a monotonous amount of power. then imagine putting a small fragile orange and blue chihuahua that is Mosgov infront of this monster. what do you get? the greatest clippers play ever. swish. count it!

  • Jrooks

    My favorite clippers moment is when shaun livingston twisted his leg man that moment almost scared me out of playing basket ball that was just nasty i thought i was watching a episode of scared anyway thats my favoret moment

  • mars

    Umm… Blake “L.A.-Quake” Griffin’s monster night against the Knicks is pretty hard to top. Close behind is 2006′s double-overtime game 5 versus the Pheonix Suns, EB42 dropped 33 pts 15 reb 8 assists and 5 blks . 3rd would probably be Buffalo Braves’ Bob “Mr 30-15″ McAdoo, he was pretty dope too, but I wasn’t born yet.

  • Vince13

    Darius Miles x Q-Rich head bump. Pure swagger, baby.

  • Tanoy Biswas

    The game where the Clippers played the Knicks where Blake Griffin dropped 44 points and got 3 posters in the game . Eric Gordon also banged on a man .

  • Bruno

    the Lamar, Darius & Quentin days made me follow this team but now they have a beast so I gotta keep an eye on them again

  • Kaos

    My Clippers moment I always think of is in January of last season when the Clippers beat the Laker. I remember Eric Gordan having a good game and thinking “dang, Davis and Gordan are gonna be legit.” Haha but so far it hasn’t turned out that ways, but hopefully the Clippers will have their chance to “clip” the nets down…or just get out of the lottery.

  • http://slamonline.com tealish

    It’s hard not to immediately think about BLAKEGRIFFIN’s beasthood when talking about the LAC, but before him, there was actually a moment, more recent than most people would first believe, where the Clippers as a TEAM, were relevant.
    That’s the moment for me — Sam Cassell, with his rejuvenated old man game, leading the Clippers back into the playoffs, falling ONE game short of the 2006 WCF’s.
    Yes, that really happened.

    Around a decade ago (my God I feel old), there was this feeling, this vibe that the Los Angeles Clippers were on the verge of greatness. They were talented and cool, and Darius Miles, Lamar Odom and Elton Brand graced the cover of SLAM wearing each other’s jerseys. Of course, this being the Clippers, that promise went unfulfilled.

    It just happened. Blake goes for 44 aginst the Knicks. He had a highlight reel worth of dunks in that game alone. He is the only reason anyone needs to watch the Clippers.

  • matt the jazz fan

    The SLAM magazine cover with the uniforms criss-crossed… and the follow-up pictures in (I think) the next issue’s letters section.

  • sample

    @leonel i think the big balls dance came when cassell was in minny with kg

  • Jeff H

    When Darius Miles and Quinton Richardson were on the team together. Although the clippers were still bad they were always fun to watch. That double head tap they used to do is still cool to this day.

  • TJ Mann

    I gotta say my most memorable Clipper players were Ken Norman and Ron Harper. That was the last time this franchise even stood a chance.
    Being from the Philly area (and sharing a birthday with him), I was also a big Pooh Richardson fan (Even though he had his best years with the Wolves).

  • unrel

    when, then, free agent kobe bryant was thinking about going to the clippers.. regardless how serious or close he was from signing.. the thought of it would have changed the NBA landscape in LA.. besides that moment.. the fullcourt pass to odom.. caught it mid-air.. oops over his shoulder to d.miles.. one of the best alley-oops of all time..

  • Mike

    It is the dunk by Blake Griffin but only because of the look of shock/awe from Amare to Griffin when Amare was on the line.

  • Sigurdur Einar Iceland

    When i think about great players and Clippers, i think about Danny Manning. If not for all the inj he would have been a superstar
    And then about Clippers moment it has to be when they won Denver 4-1 in the 2006 playoffs. There fans were so happy to win a playoffs series i have never seen anything like it.

  • Kadavour

    this is the BEST alley oop i’ve ever seen. Jason Williams also had a sick pass that Peja bobbled in this game, but I remember bumping my fists on me head after seeing this play.
