    Should Clips abide to the Staples Standard?

    If you walk into Staples you notice alot of Championship banners and a complete lack of division titles. That is the standard the Lakers have set, but if the Clips happen to win their division for the first time in franchise history, shouldnt they celebrate it?

    Its a non issue to me, I personally wouldn't try to emulate any franchise but thats just me.

    I always wondered that about the Clippers/Lakers. I mean, when the Clippers are playing, do they take down the Lakers banners? Or do the Clippers just play in the shadow of shame?

    And should Minny put up banners for the championships that the Lakers won in Minny? I mean, they were won by a Minny team.


    I say thrown the division banner up. It is something to be proud of. I mean, there are franchises who have never won a single NBA title, let alone 17, so not everybody can be expected to hold the same standard as Boston and LAL. Teams should celebrate their accomplishments and milestones, and that would be a milestone for the Clippers franchise.

    Honestly I think they should move locations. Maybe go down to San Diego.

    Aren't the banners removed when other entertainment is held in the arena? Concerts, etc?

    Who the best in the league? You tell me...

    No the banners stay up, only the decor changes, I wondered the same thing until I traveled there last march to watch a few games. The lighting is very dif for both teams with the clippers having the really bright lights and Lakers having the dimmed lights for the audience. I didnt think it was a big deal until I went to a few games. I honestly prefer the dimmed lights, it adds a certain something to the game. Looking forward to seeing 4 more games in on my next trip to LA in a lil over two weeks!

    I'd think the Lakers would throw everything up there. Let the fans see the greatness. Title banners are nice but they don't tell the whole story.

    As for the Clippers, they absolutely should do the same. Put it up. It would be the biggest accomplishment in the franchises history for (now).

    ... yes ... clippers should have a huge division banner to block all the lakers championship banners LOL jk seriously though they need to put it up ... a standard only applies to teams that want to participate I think ... i mean if it didn't all the teams would have retired Micheal jordans number

    Clippers really should be playing in San Diego. San Diego is a huge naval base and Clippers = Boats and it helps them develop fan base. it's really a win win. And they already played there in the past from 1978-84. Just a matter of if they can get a new arena that seats more people than their original Valley View Casino Center. Only seats 14,000

    That's not the Staples Standard, it's the Lakers standard.

    The Clippers should most definitely put up any division titles they win. If and when they win over 10 championships, maybe they should consider following how the Lakers do it.

    Nah bro, when your a team in LA there is no shame.

    And should Minny put up banners for the championships that the Lakers won in Minny? I mean, they were won by a Minny team.
    Now that would be shameful

    Yea but the Clippers arent being run by clowns any more so why would they ever leave?
    More importantly thats not what this thread is about, this is my 2nd consecutive thread you've managed to get off topic. Get it together

    They already have a following, a sweeter deal and a better market. Why would a team upgrade only to go back to the original dump?

    I think they should put up the division banner if they win it.
