The Los Angeles Lakers own L.A. basketball. Always have, always will. So don't mind them while they get their feathers ruffled over all this attention being given to the new-look Los Angeles Clippers.â†µ
Current Laker Matt Barnes knows the Clippers all too well. He spent his rookie season with the Clips and has now come full circle back to LA. Now on the other side, he has taken a good look at the Clips and he's not too thrilled with what he's seen:â†µ
"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.They act like they won the dunk contest after every dunk. So, as players, people aren't going to tolerate that."â†µ
Because is there's anything LA basketball fans hate, it's showmanship.
