View Full Version : owner of Clippers doesnt know who Randy Foye and Ryan gomes are!

A couple of months ago this was going to be the summer of all summers for the Clippers, a fresh start, a chance to hire a new coach, $17 million in cap space to go after LeBron or other big names like him and make a huge splash.

And so they signed Randy Foye and Ryan Gomes.

Or, as Sterling put it, "If I really called the shots we wouldn't have signed Gomes and what's the other guy's name?

"You know, they told me if we built a new practice facility we'd attract all the top players in the game," Sterling adds. "I guess I should have doubled the size of this place."

He's no different than most Clippers fans.

"I swear to you, I never heard of these guys," Sterling says, "but what if the coach says he wants them?"






Is this a place you want to work?

Gomes is a class act who is somewhat of a contributor. Foye is lost

This wouldn't be a problem if Sterling was the type of owner that let management do all the work and not get involved. But because that isn't the case, this IS a problem.

the CLippers need to move elsewhere. They wouldnt sell high-priced tickets in LA anyway.

First thought: :laugh2:

Second thought: :sigh: How can an owner not know the guys on his own team? At least give the media the whole "bright future... loads of potential... veteran presence" crap.

that's because sterling hasn't slept with them yet. after a few beers and a couple of blond wigs, he's going to be very intimate with them.

HA, Gomes = Semi-understandable, but Foye?

Wasn't the dude a top-10 pick a few years ago? Shows how much this moron pays attention to the league. I don't get it, tremendous amount of talent on this team but they can't seem to get their **** together. Now this kinda helps it all make sense.

They are the joke of the nba, but have assembled a decent team that can compete for a playoff spot. I don't know how credible this is, but if it is :facepalm:

not a huge deal. i figure alot of owners/ownership-groups are old timey business types who don't have much passion for the game. I'd bet that lots of mlb, nfl or nhl owners couldn't reel off the entire roster but thats way different (more roster spots, higher player turnover with the nfl,etc). :facepalm: news but not devistating imo. now if the gm didn't know.....

when i clicked the thread i was thinking so what if he didnt know who the two were he is just the owner not the gm but if guys are on your team as an owner (especially the owner of a team that underachieves ever year) you need to be behind your players....but **** it if they dont want ryan gomes i would love him on the celtics

That's why he's a douche bag and the Clips are destined to suck as long as he's their owner.

If Sterling seriously doesn't know of Foye or Gomes then he's a douche. If he does (know of them) and he's just making a point that they aren't quality players then that's pretty insulting and not a good way to welcome new players.

Omg, seriously everyone, I saw this thread way earlier but I honestly figured that it was gonna be some BS stuff made up about the Clipps, therefore I didn't bother even opening this thread,this is so embarrassing for that franchise, I guess I shouldn't be suprised.

I actually would not be shocked if a few old time owners didnt know who some players on there bench were,But Foye was a lottery pic not long ago I think he should have heard of him or he was being sarcastic which is even worst since hes a part of your team now.Even if he really didnt know these guys why on earth would he admit that.Poor Clipps,They must have some good ppl in there organization cause they have a nice roster last few years
