Are you more likely to watch the Lakers or Clippers this year?

The Lakers. After waiting many years to clear the wait list for season tickets, we finally made it this year. I consider it an investment in the future, as I believe the team will rebuild. I have been a fan since listening to their games on the radio when I was a kid – I will always support the purple and gold.

I will be watching the Clippers. Blake Griffin and Chris Paul are one of the most exciting and dynamic young duos in the league. The Lakers are a team of old, overpaid veterans that will likely be riddled with injuries throughout the season. The Clippers are contending for an NBA championship and the Lakers are contending for next year’s draft lottery.

Neither. As a Lakers fan from the Jerry West days through the Kobe-Gasol championships, this present group of players has become pretty much unwatchable. For numerous reasons, I have become a Spurs fan and really appreciate their organization and teamwork. The Warriors have also put together a team of good guys who are very enjoyable to watch.

I’m a Clippers guy, not a Lakers guy. For full disclosure, I do have professional interests, since another CBS radio station, KFWB, is the home of the Clippers. But I’ve been following them for years.

I’m loyal to the Clippers either way, but they are also undoubtedly the more exciting L.A. team to watch this year. The Clippers have been one of the rising stars in the Pacific Division and overall in the NBA. A truly resilient team.
