  1. It wouldn't be a bad idea to move The Clippers into The Forum until they build their own arena. The Clippers don't have an identity at all. Moving the Clips into The Forum is a step in moving them from under the shadow of the Lakers. To me the Clippers are just that team who occupy the Staples Center when the Lakers have away games.

  2. Just move the La Clippers to Vegas we got every set up for a Nba team anyways. La doesn't want them in LA. But Vegas does want them in Vegas tho.

  3. I live in Inglewood and I don’t want the clippers to come to. The stadium and the forum is enough.

  4. The forum is fighting for something the clippers have no part of that stadium in front of the forum is the new stadium there building for the rams and the chargers so idk what there going on about

  5. Man it's gonna be a sad day if the clippers move into the original cathedral of the Lakers. Honestly, I wish the Lakers still played there..guess I just cant let go of the past lol

  6. This whole idea is dumb. LA has never been fully behind the Clippers. There have been times that they were in the playoffs and the Lakers weren’t, and almost nobody in LA seemed to care. They need to just move to a new city. They can move out of state or even move to Anaheim or back to San Diego were they were before. Moving to Inglewood would still mean they are in the Lakers’ shadow. The Lakers played in Inglewood for over three decades.

  7. Mayor Butts is a butt hole of the worst kind. He's a Freemason who's interest is in making himself rich off the backs of the slaves that vote for him. The black community is STUPID and believe that other black people care about them! I live in Inglewood and I've sat through city council meetings and I can tell you that these elected officials are in a club and they laugh at the voters!

  8. It doesn't matter where the Clippers build the new stadium whether it's in Inglewood, Carson, or elsewhere it's still going to take business away from The Forum and Staples Center if that new stadium hosts concerts and events.
