In the midst of a semi-successful career in the technology industry, after a particularly grueling IPO followed by a popping noise that turned out not to be his last healthy Achilles tendon but rather the bursting of the tech bubble, ClipperSteve decided to take a couple months off to spend some time with his kids, ClipperMax and ClipperZoe. Finding that a life of leisure appealed to him (particularly the shall we say more flexible rules concerning personal hygiene), the brief sabbatical has now stretched into many years. To pass the time between coaching youth soccer, Brownie troop meetings and elementary school field trips, he would often bore / harass / terrorize his ever-shrinking circle of friends with endless emails about the NBA, and more specifically, his beloved Clippers. Needing a more efficient format for disseminating his brilliance, the blogosphere serendipitously appeared, perhaps through the intervention of benevolent pixies. Why should you care what ClipperSteve has to say about anything? Because he has a lot of time on his hands. Why is ClipperSteve a Clipper fan? We don't have that much time.
