You gotta feel bad for Blake Griffin… because he's going to join quite possibly the worst organization in all of sports. The LA Clippers. They have always sucked, and they probably always will… at least they will if guys like assistant GM Neil Olshey are around.
When he was asked when the Clippers decided they'd draft Blake Griffin with the first pick… he said:
decision June 2008… when
he decided to go back to Oklahoma, that if we got the No. 1 pick in
'09, he'd be the guy."
How's that make you feel, Clips fans? You've got a front office that's planning ahead to the NEXT year's lottery. That's a great mentality to have.
"Hey fans… we want you to continue to spend your hard earned money on tickets and food and root for the Clippers… but we executives are already done with this season."
Lame. Be glad you're a fan of a different team. I think Clippers fans are the same kind of people who become pen pals with prisoners. It's some combination of self-loathing and being over-compassionate. It has to be. Being a Clips fan is borderline masochistic.
