Found my post in the WMC thread when everyone was celebrating the Clippers back in February, seems fitting now as I thought it would be

Right now they are good, but what has it gotten them, last season 2nd round exit, this season, MAYBE WCF, but probably still the Spurs and Thunder will be there so yet another 2nd round exit. Congrats to the Clippers for climbing out of the cellar for a few seasons, but when it all ends again, when Blake leaves, or CP3 leaves or blows out his knee yet again, or they both leave to go and actually try and finish the job somewhere, the Clippers will suck again. They will have won no championships in the meantime and will be kings over us in what sense, a few Pacific Division titles? Please, until they win some trophies they'll never be kings of anything, that's what LA is all about, 2nd round exits are special for the Clippers I guess, but they're a failed season for the Lakers. They're better than us now, no question, but those seriously saying it's their town now because of a season and a half of this, you need to really think about what you're saying, look at our histories, come to your senses and laugh. The Heat, Thunder, and maybe some unknown team, hopefully us retooled, will continue to battle it out for championships the next few seasons, while the Clippers never make it, then they will fall off again, because that is the way of the world.
