Atleast Fish takes charges and flops on bigger players.

That last play where he flopped and drew a charge on Barnes was an obvious flop. I can't blame him if the refs are going to it to him, but there is no way a guy that big and strong should ever flop.

I respect the hell out of the kid but flopping isn't the type of reputation he wants to build. I could also care less about how much he showboats after a dunk because I would probably do the same if I had his ability. Just don't flop anymore BG.

Gasol and Fisher are the biggest floppers in the league so both Pau and Barnes need to STFU.

we all know blakes a little floppy.

but this is a matter of not hating the player, but rather hating the game.

blakes just being smart. if the refs are going to reward it, then he's smart for taking advantage of it. refs need to step up their game and not be sold so easily.

Barnes doesn't like it when Blake's teammates get so excited whenever Blake put on a show? Weren't they like that when Shannon Brown hit some pretty dunks as well?

Mo deserved the Academy Award for that flop he pulled on Glock. Poor kid didn't even touch or trip him and Mo did a circus dive. It made Bosh flopping on Boozer look subpar. The rookie was lost when he asked the ref what he did while pointing at the replay on the tron

Makes me remember the time he tried to flop on Kobe and got ninja kicked because of it lol back in Cleveland

That was the Ariza, Farmar group. I get the point though as Kobe, Pau, Ariza, Bynum, Luke, Fish, Sasha, and Lamar were frequently celebrating on the sidelines that year when Shannon came and made big plays.

It takes one to know one right???

It's pretty obvious Fish, CP3, Mo Williams, Gasol (not as much as BG), and Blake Griffin flop. This shouldn't br mews to anybody if you spend the time that I do watching both LA teams.

I just wish the league would get rid of it. You know the game is being tarnished and cheated when you see big strong monster athletes like Blake taking obvious dives after barely even being touched.

I agree that flopping should be a penalty.

There I would change about fouls in the NBA. The refs are wayyyyyy to involved in a normal basketball game and it is one of the many things that is holding the NBA back.

How is it hate? Don't fans from both teams admit players from both sides flop? Fish, Gasol, CP3, Mo, and BG? It's not hate. It's the truth.

It just seems pretty apparent that officiating needs to correct the flopping issue when a super-human like BG is doing it 3-4 times a game.

There are tons of Clipper fans in LA. My whole family are Clipper fans and not the bandwagon ones. You're either one or the other and there isn't a whole lot of hate between both fan bases. The only bandwagon Laker fans in LA are the people that are just moving here, and I don't think too many people have been moving to LA since the economy has gone down. Just ask Hertz.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- For the first time in years, the title of "Best NBA Team in Los Angeles" is up for grabs as the Los Angeles Clippers revamped their roster this training camp while the Los Angeles Lakers have been unable to shake up theirs.

Lakers forward Matt Barnes has seen the matchup from both sides of the tracks. As a rookie in 2003-04, he played for a Clippers team that went 28-54. Last year, his eighth season in the league, he joined the Lakers as a free agent and the team went 57-25.

Barnes said the Clippers should be feeling some positive vibes after adding Chris Paul, Chauncey Billups, Caron Butler and re-signing DeAndre Jordan this month, but thinks they may have gone overboard in showing that enthusiasm.

"They definitely have a much improved team here and are looking to make a push towards the playoffs," Barnes said Thursday after the Clippers beat the Lakers in a pair of preseason games on Monday and Wednesday. "They have a lot of reason to be excited, but all the celebration after dunks and all that kind of stuff, I mean, I just kind of think it looks amazing and it makes 'SportsCenter,' but I mean, let's just play basketball."

Count Barnes as one person not exactly thrilled by the "Lob City" Clippers.

"They act like they won the dunk contest after every dunk," Barnes said. "So, as players, people aren't going to tolerate that."

Barnes showed how much he appreciated the celebration when he picked up a flagrant 1 foul for pushing Blake Griffin to the floor with 6:48 remaining in the third quarter on Wednesday.

It was just one example of the overall chippy play between the two teams. Lakers forward Pau Gasol offered an explanation for all the hard fouls after the game.

"I think we were upset that they were flopping a little too much," said Gasol.

Barnes expanded upon Gasol's claim and pointed to the criticism and Griffin specifically.

"He's an amazing athlete and an amazing player but he does flop a lot," Barnes said. "You're too big and too strong to be doing that. Then he wants to talk.

"... He's a special athlete. Probably one of the best athletes I've ever seen, but all the flopping is unnecessary. That's the way he plays and it works too, they call it, so you can't be mad at him for it."

However, Barnes was mad, or at least annoyed, that his foul on Griffin was determined to be a flagrant by the referees.

"I looked at [the replay] and yeah, my arms did get extended but [Griffin] flailed everywhere like I threw him to half-court," Barnes said. "I just think the refs are so quick to judge. Even after looking at the replay, I heard initially they wanted to call a flagrant 2 and I'm just like, 'Are you kidding me?'

"I guess there's just no hard fouls anymore. It was just a hard foul."

Barnes, who was suspended for a game last year for escalating an on-court altercation after he pushed Dallas Mavericks assistant coach Terry Stotts to the ground when the coach tried to restrain him, said he was only assessed the flagrant foul on Wednesday because of his reputation.

"That's exactly what it was yesterday, my reputation," Barnes said. "I've fouled people much harder than that. That's all it is. ... I have a reputation for stuff I've done, so I've earned it, so I can't be mad at no one but myself, but that definitely wasn't a flagrant foul."

Well to be fair, there arent too many Clipper fans in LA because they are too busy being bandwagon Laker fans.

haha, that's about to change.

the long time LA motto has always been "there's no such thing as a clipper fan, only a Laker hater". Might seem like an absurd statement, but considering Sterlings past, it was a reasonable claim.

That's not the case anymore. very exciting times for basketball fans in LA. i'm purple and gold till I'm grey and old, but as soon as LA is knocked out or out of contention Ill root clippers. LA basketball> everybody else, lol.

Lmao Clipper fans are owning Laker fans in this thread. I think Laker fans are just bitter that they did not get CP3 and now the other LA team is now getting all the attention.

never had any hatred until i ran into laker homers of this site. if anything, laker haters don't become clipper fans, being clipper fans while living in LA makes you become a laker hater. i've been a clipper fan since the late 80s and i grew up there. get our facts straight.

Cp3, fisher, gasol all flop more than Griffin. The fact that pau gasol took to the media to complain about griffins flopping shows how pissed he is because he couldnt handle blake. STFU pau, how can u let a barely sophomore PF school you like that? the way they were playing out there it seemed pau was the sophomore and blake the veteran. Thats really the biggest reason pau is pissed.

you are one of the few polite posters from the other side. it is refreshing to see no trolling or baiting coming from purple and gold. and yeah you are 100% correct that there will be some bandwagoners as the clips start to build a winning tradition we have been sorely lacking for decades. but what can you do? i remember when magic retired and lakers weren't making playoffs, there were a lot of empty seats in the old forum and the sports arena started to fill up. it is what it is. good luck to your season, of course head to head matches excluded. :)

PS- do me a favor and please filter some of your own guys trolling in our forum. i got me a warning from one of your mods to stop PMing threatening messages, and i don't even have PM privilege. we can use some unbiased modding at our home forum. thanks.

Jealousy's a stinky cologne Ned. But on top of that - as you acknowledged - there WILL be a plethora of bandwagoners jumping on this team. Last year I couldn't stop watching just from an entertainment value, and with them being even more entertaining AND solid this season? Yeah, they'll get a lot of polarizing emotions, especially from sour Laker fans if they can't pull off a deal for Dwight. Which is silly, the Clippers absolutely paid their dues and it's awesome to see them finally on the verge of the limelight/contention.

Not sure if you saw the game but Blake most certainly did not "school" Pau. Blake did school Murphy though, really really badly.

thanks. i'm just glad that LA has two great teams. we're talkin' 82 games, plus playoffs of great basketball. now all i gotta do is go find some trees with money going on them. at the same time, I'm expecting those nine dollar nose bleed tickets that were available last year to at least, double if not tripple in price with the addition of paul. which is kind of a bummer for broke college students, haha.

I'll look into it.

you are lucky that i can't access your Pm to me. you told me to stop threatening people over PM.

the message you posted was clearly from OT thread after your laker poster was threatening one of our guys and i was simply stating the truth. i am a former employee of the department of public health, working closely with the navy, army, and marine corp. i told my guy who was threatened by your guy who was expressing his concerns of a marine who wanted to "find" him and "hurt" him that if in fact this appears to be serious, i have ways to correct it before it becomes an issue. why is it a problem to solve an issue that was described to be potentially a violent outcome could be in our hands? where exactly in my post do you find the threat, BTW?

:laugh2: did you get confused on the title? PM Warning on threats.

That means I was giving you the PM Warning not that you were threatening over PM's.

And it doesn't matter where it was from. It being OT doesn't mean it's right to post threats. The Laker fan you keep complaining about was told to stop. Your Clipper friend was told to stop although he did say he didn't feel threatened.. don't know why your so defensive.

Get over it. It's the bloody preseason. Laker fans your making yourselves look like jealous schoolgirls.

After seeing some of the comments in this thread... I get the sudden urge to want to pick a fight with a Mod :D lol

So he might flop... basically everyone in the NBA does. Do I need to bring up Bosh's Award Nominating performance in Chicago last year? Quit yer fighting.

It will be nice to see both LA teams compete rather than hearing the same generic Gold and Purple crap.... I'm just curious if the Clippers gave up too much... I'm on Gordon's **** more than most people on this forum, so it shocked me that they would move him. Wouldn't a line-up of

Billups-Bledsoe
Gordon
Butler-Aminu
Griffin
Jordan

Seem to mesh better than a Paul-Billups backcourt? I mean Billups would have still likely played there, and he could have help teach Bledsoe about the works of a PG, so he could obtain starting duties in a year or two when he retires. Also since they had Minnys pick, they could likely have drafted a 3 this year fairly high. I hope everything works out, but I'm weary on Paul's Legs

Majority of Lakers fans are so bitter when things don't go their way which leads them to boast about irrelevant things. Like your typical Lakers fan will say "Okay cool bro, Kobe will always have more rings and your team will never win a title! mMuahaha!"

Deep down inside, they are just butt-hurt and hate to face reality. They choose to look back at the past to make themselves feel better but it's honestly pathetic.

It sucks that they had to give up EG but CP3 is the best possible fit for the Clippers and they are a better team with Paul vs Billups/Gordon.
