    Ballmer can afford to buy his contract out.

    This is not going to turn out well. He should have been the one to blame in the JR Smith debacle.

    Remember when the Clippers were going to pass the Lakers as LA's "Premiere team"? Fun times.

    That jersey is terrible.

    They need a new name man. Clippers is just far too tainted.

    My favorite Clippers are "New Kings of LA" team was the 05-06 team that won a playoff series
    Brand + Kaman + Maggette + Cassell + Mobley + Radmanovic

    And Livingston + Wilcox on bench as "Kids with tons of potential that just need development"

    All a mirage as they missed playoffs the next year and went downhill

    Think if NBA came out and said they want to expand, Ballmer should just sell the Clippers to Seattle group and just get an expansion team?

    What?

    Why would Seattle group buy Clippers when they could just get expansion team for less cost?

    Ty Lue reminds me a little of Doc Rivers.

    I saw a clip on TV where Balmer said that not only did the Clippers get the best Head Coach available but that they also got the best Head Coach in the NBA. :amazed:

    What has Lue ever done as a coach other than allow LeBron James to carry him to NBA Finals in a weak Eastern Conference?

    Lue's only coaching experience is with the Cavaliers, from 2015-16 to 2018-19.

    I looked up LeBron James game-logs from the 2015-16 season to the 2017-18 season. These were three seasons that Lue coached James in Cleveland.

    Lue's Cavaliers were 1-12 in the games James didn't play.

    Then Lue's Cavaliers went 0-6 to start the season in 2018-19, with James playing for the Lakers at this point. Lue got fired after those 6 games.

    So Lue has a combined 1-18 record as head coach in his NBA career in games without LeBron James.

    I would think "The Best Head Coach in the NBA" would be able to have his team perform better than 1-18 without its best player. I understand that no James would mean poorer performance. But 1-18 is awful. That projects to a 4-78 record over an 82 game season, a winning percentage of 0.052. In other words, it projects to the worst NBA season in the history of the league (even worse than the 2011-12 Charlotte Bobcats who hold the record for lowest winning percentage in a season at 7-59, a 0.106 percentage).

    Those Cavs teams were atrocious without Lebron. Yeah I don’t agree about the best head coach either but I don’t think that’s a good indicator of how the Clippers will perform.
