Eric Gordon: San Diego would be better
I kinda agree.


Given those circumstances, Clippers guard Eric Gordon isn't sure that it wouldn't be best for the franchise to return to San Diego, where they could separate themselves from the Lakers.

"I like L.A.," Gordon told the Los Angeles Times. "I don't have any complaints. But you see all L.A. everywhere, Lakers stuff everywhere… [you would] have your own identity within the city and your team. That's just a lot better."
"I wouldn't mind going down there — to separate ourselves from L.A. from the Lakers," Gordon said of San Diego, where the team resided from 1978-84 before infamous owner Donald Sterling moved them to Los Angeles.

The Lakers rank eighth in attendance this season with 18,997 fans per game, while the Clippers are 15th, with 17,318 on average coming to the Staples Center for their games. By percentage, however, the Lakers hold a 99.7 to 90.9 sales ratio.

Gotta agree. Clippers have been living in the Lakers shadow ever since they moved to Cali. When the Clips play the Lakers at Staples Center as the home team, most of the fans are cheering for the Lakers. So yeah, move 'em elsewhere so they don't have to be the little brother to the Lake-Show.

EDIT: But first they gotta find a new owner...

Why the hell does LA have two teams anyway? I hate it when that happens, especially in other sports.

Money, money and money.

Just not fair for other cities, who still have decent markets.

Seattle and Vancouver we've been talking about.

Move the Clips to Winnipeg

I heard Kansas City would be next city

But imagine what a Clipper "home" game vs. the Lakers is like? I'd seen a few on league pass, it's gotta be rough when your "home" team is calling you fags and throwing shit at you.

Vancouver Clippers has a nice ring to it.

Hell, I'd be happy with the Los Angeles Clippers of Vancouver. :police:

its kinda sad that LA has 2 teams, whereas the whole country of Canada has only 1. Clippers aint ever gonna get any respect in LA. The lakers and Clippers are complete opposites of each other. Lakers have 16 or 17( not sure) championships, whereas the clippers have only made it to the playoffs like 3 times since they came out to LA. Clippers is like Lakers baby bro, who never accomplishes anything.
