You did say they should be 0-3 right? And how exactly does that make you more of a fan than me?

Don't pretend to be a Laker fan if you have the nerve to say that you're calling it off for a couple of years. Don't hide and come back when they win...stick with your team no matter what...because you're gonna be surprised, and then we'll all wonder who you're watching on TV this season...since you're pretty much saying they won't do good at all (worse than you expected).
Again, YOUR definition of a fan differs from mine. I guess your idea of a fan gleefully sits there and watch defeat after defeat, hoping that one day a miracle comes and the Clippers win a championship. I am however NOT that person. I expect and demand perfection, Jerry Buss made this decision to continually compete, not be lottery bound. So if they do fail this year, there will be changes, count on it. I will not be wasting my money watching this team turn the ball over 20 times/game. But I will watch the nationally televised games, but moreso for scouting our players. Who belongs and who doesn't. This team isn't ready. If you can't figure that out after 3 games, then sit there and wait for 50 games, so that you can finally come to a conclusion that took me quicker to do so.
After watching a few summer pro league games I saw the numerous flaws in Rush's game. But I'm sure you wanted to give him time. After 2+ years, I think some have come to a conclusion that I already knew. The Lakers management agrees and have decided accordingly. Don't knock me, b/c I'm faster than you at it.
Stick with my team b/c I'll be surprised? You're right, I surely was surprised that this team with talented youngsters, the best all around player in the game managed to set Los Angeles Laker FRANCHISE records for futility in a game, getting beat by 26 to a lower tier playoff team, in assists, FG's, and FG%.
29%... my god, I was surprised by that. Can they play anyworse? I guess I should wait and see... I think I might have the pleasure of watching a 25 turnover game.
