they live in the same city, so obviously its not something "in the water." are clipper fans generally based from a certain part of LA?(ex:north, south) kind of like how white sox and cub fans sort have a geographical distinction in general.

theres got to be some sort of explanation. i have never seen a clipper fan on PSD act the way many(not all) laker fans act on here. someone please help clarify this for me

I would say being a laker fan you kinda have some bragging rights, lakers are known to always be the best and have the best players.....as a clipper fan, obviously they havent had anywhere close the same glory as the lakers, so what can they brag about? what can they fight about with other fans on which clipper player is better than ect ect.....just my opinion

well as a clipper fan i can say that not all clipper fans are classy.
the reason that you say there are so many more classless laker fans is because there is a much larger population of laker fans in general.

i still say that about half of the so called laker fans are band wagon fans that only show their faces when the lakers win. the flags the flags!

just a couple years ago when the clippers were doing well, magically there were 10 times more clipper "fans"

the clipper band wagon people were probably the people that only like the lakers when they are winning. i think it has to do with the fact that LA has so much to offer.

when a team is loosing they disappear. but when they win, people actually think its worth their time.

Well one, they are not more classy, it's just a bunch of cocky Laker fans on PSD showing people up and making us look bad.

And two, the Clippers have always been loveable losers. No rivals, no fights. The Lakers are hated by other teams and fans.

But no, not any more "classy".

and thats why so many people dont like laker fans.

it not because you guy are good and we all envy your team. its because your fans constantly have to brag. in general, it also seems like laker fans think the whole nba revolves around them.

You are absolutly right, but on the other hand, there are those who post threads bashing the lakers, or trying to make the lakers look bad, then they come to defend there team in which i honestly defend my team as well.....It's like when you think of baseball what team pops in ur head? Yankees. When you think of football what team pops in your head...Patriots......when you think of basketball what pops in your head...Lakers/Celtics.

thats your opinion. i think of angels, chargers, and clippers


and there will always be people hating on other teams. thats what makes it so fun. its just it gets old when laker fans are so cocky because they have won championships. they (the Lakers) have been a great franchise, but everyone already knows that. So i just dont get when some laker fans be so cocky just for a reaction

what's the point of this topic

one team has had so much more success than the other, also there are just so many more users from LA anyway

believe me if the knicks were winning we'd have the numbers to rival the Laker forums during the regular season

It is all bragging rights man, you think that the lakers that have had so much glory in their franchise, that the fans are just going to sit back and sit quiet? No, they are going to brag and show off of what their team as done. You are right, sometimes people get overboard with posting and can be cocky, but just ignore it, you should be use to it already. Nothing you can really do. It is what it is man.

oh yeah i know. it will always be that way. i guess i just dont like it when someone starts to talk trash on the clips or talk about how the lakers are and i know more about the lakers then they do.

but yea, ive gotten pretty good at just ignoring those type of people

The classy fans are the fans that stick with the team no matter what. The unclassy fans that talk crap are all the bandwagoners. Nobody is on the Clippers bandwagon right now so you just get the diehard fans. If you listen to a diehard Clippers fan and a diehard Lakers fan, they should sound the same.

good feedback, i think i understand now. this is off subject, but the clippers are really starting to look good for next season with all their offseason moves. who knows, maybe they will have a championship to brag about this time next year. (100% guaranteed if they kept Brand and made all these FA pickups) Now if they can make a blockbuster trade, watch out!

They have less to be proud of. That's really all I can think of. I know plenty of classy Laker fans. A lot of them on this site. Unfortunately for every classy Laker fan, there's usually two unclassy ones. At least on PSD anyway.

I know lakers fans are all over LA(the country even), but is there a certain part of LA central to Clipper fans???

Thanks for the kind words in the thread title! It's just like everyone else said. I don't have any reasons to add. The only thing I can add is that almost all Clipper fans really know a lot about Basketball. Like my boy kyle said I can't stand talking to Laker fans who know less about the team than me. It makes me feel dirty, like I need a shower. It happens so much out here you wouldn't even beleive it. Sadly I probably talk just as much Lakers as Clippers in my day to day life.

Every team has die hard fans and the Lakers have 1000 times more than the Clippers but right now and on this site every Clipper fan is a die hard fan. Not just of the team but of the league. We have a really active forum now! It's amazing how much this crazy offseason boosted our activity! Every new poster seems to know what they are talking about and know all the relevent players in the leage, and of course every player on our team. That should go without saying IMO. Thats the only difference between Clipper and Laker fans.

im my experience, i would say the further away from los angeles and closer to orange county seems to be more of where clippers are. just my experience.

No they play in the same building. It's literally 99% Laker fans. That's only reason there is so many "uncalssy" Laker fans.

Its all about succes, anyway not all the lakers fans are classles.

look at it this way

Wich are the "worst" fans?

Lakers, Success
Celtics, Success
Sixers, Success.
Knicks Success ( even if along time aga ina galaxy far away whee phil jackson wore shorts).
Bulls fans.

And of course you have those eternally unsatisfied because their team never really gets the objective, like Suns or ,Jazz or Kings fans, they get traumatized by defeat after defeat after defeat and they go nuts and hate and hate.


I must say the most polite fans in teh league are Raptor fans and Spur fans, wich is really meritory since they have the Success in their side and still they dont boast about it or bragg about it all the time.

So a Clap for Spurs and Raptors fans, and psd posters.
