The Clippers ridiculed by … their own employees!

The reputation of the Clippers is at stake during this first round of the playoffs… After having undertaken great maneuvers to avoid the Lakers and face the Mavericks, Tyronn Lue’s men could well come out… Which would obviously make a lot of laughter… the employees of the franchise!

Historically, the Clippers are a franchise of losers… So obviously there were the “Lob City” years where Chris Paul and Blake Griffin ruled Los Angeles, and since their arrival, Kawhi leonard and Paul George play the leading roles. But the primary DNA of this team is defeat! And this DNA could be particularly visible in a few days …

Indeed, Tyronn Lue’s men did everything to avoid a clash with the Lakers in the first round of the playoffs. “Everything” includes two inexplicable losses against two of the worst teams in the league, namely the Rockets and the Thunder! They were clearly targeting the Mavericks, and they were served.

The problem is that Luka Doncic took this affront very badly and destroyed the Clippers with each of his visits to the Staples Center! He wears his Mavericks and the next victory will mean qualification for them, and the utmost humiliation for the gang at Kawhi! Faced with this potential legendary backlash, even the Clippers’ employees laugh at them blithely! Two journalists say:

Paolo Uggetti: The Clippers players were mocked by a few stewards from the heights of Staples Center as they prepared to return to the locker room.

Tomer Azarly: Stewards came up to me to interrupt Kawhi Leonard’s press conference after Game 2 by shouting: « Ask him why are they afraid of the Lakers ?! » Ask him why they lost the last two games on purpose ?! « 

The Clippers are therefore humiliated by their own employees… Which is quite logical since a large part of the staff of the Staples Center must proudly support the Lakers. But the finding remains terrible. An elimination against Dallas would destroy all the credibility of the franchise.

If the Clippers come out, they will become the laughing stock of the league! Next season they will undoubtedly play without calculating…
