Can the Clippers win the NBA Championships

LA Clippers Tickets Barrys Tickets

Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers suffered a devastating first-round elimination during the 2013 NBA playoffs. After recording the best season of their franchise history the Clips fell short during the playoffs. This year, they hope they have found the recipe for success. But is that the reality? Can the Los Angeles Clippers really win the title, at first in the West and then beat the Miami Heat or the Indiana Pacers in the NBA Finals? Let’s break down.

First of all, we are talking about a different team this year. Of course, Blake Griffin and Chris Paul are still the cornerstones of the Clips. Nonetheless, except for those two, almost any other part of the team has changed. It’s true that DeAndre Jordan was with the team last season and Jamal Crawford was playing well, last season, too. But both DJ and Crawford have seen changes in their role and they have uplifted their respective performances this season. Jordan’s performance has been greatly affected by the presence of Doc Rivers, much like the performance of the entire team has.

Clippers Blake Griffin Chris Paul

Clippers

Blake Griffin has taken his production to new levels. Really, during the extended time that Chris Paul was out with an injury, Griffin took the team on his shoulders. He was the one to emerge as the true leader of the team. He has improved several aspects of his game, like his mid-range and also free-throw shooting. Most importantly, Griffin is expected to play big for the Clips this year thanks to the presence of Doc Rivers.

The Clippers were a good team last season. Really, they had two superstars and a bunch of capable role players, but they failed to play as expected. This should be no surprise to the fans of the team. Under Vinny Del Negro, the team had no discipline, no plan to be a championship contender. The Clippers played the offensive system “let CP3 decide”.

Things are radically different this year, though. The “Doc Rivers effect” can be seen all around. The Clippers are different team both on and off the court. Even the Lakers banners are no longer shown when the Clips play at home, in the Staples Center.

Clippers Glen Davis

GLEN

The additions of Glen Davis and Danny Granger are the icing on the cake, the missing pieces for the Clips’ championship run. Really, if there was one position in the starting lineup of the team that was weak, that was the small forward. No offense to Matt Barnes, but he is not a starting small forward, at least he shouldn’t be in a team which likes to call itself “title contender”. Danny Granger is the exact piece the Clippers’ puzzle needed to move forward. Glen Davis comes to significantly upgrade the team’s backup front line. LA didn’t really have a capable big man scorer coming off the bench, at least not of the quality of Big Baby.

For sure, it will not be easy for the Clippers to beat teams like the Oklahoma City Thunder or the San Antonio Spurs. Nonetheless, they are certainly one of the strongest, if not the strongest favorites for the title, at present. The Clippers and OKC Thunder can be considered as the two best teams in the West and they only ones which can really beat the Eastern Conference champion, whichever that might be.

Tonight the LA Clippers look to extend their win streak to ten games against the Utah Jazz. The Clippers return home to the Staples Center on Sunday where they face the Cavaliers, Pistons and Bucks this week. The Western Conference race is extremely close with 3 games separating the Clippers from the Thunder from the first place spot which makes their match up on April 9th so much more important.

Rent In Lob City Actually Higher Then LA For The First Time

Lob City LA Clippers

Lob City

Which came first the Sport or the Team? You love basketball and you love the Lakers, Clippers, Bulls, Thunder or whoever but which was your first love? So which came first your love of basketball the game itself or the love of a team that got you into the sport basketball?

For years now I have offered friends, family, strangers Clippers Tickets as an inexpensive way to watch a pro basketball game even if for years they were treated like a junior college team play against one of the other NBA’s finest and for years I always got the same response “umm do you have any free Lakers Tickets”? If the Lakers were playing the Bucks and the Clippers were playing the Michael Jordon, Lebron, Kevin Durante and maybe the Lord himself 99 out of 100 friends and family would still take the Lakers. So it has to be about the TEAM itself right and not about the love of the game.

Los Angeles Clippers

Chris Deandre Blake

The truth is that history in sports has its own gravity, its special weight. No matter if a team is struggling during a season, like the Los Angeles Lakers are, the name of the franchise and its history in the league are enough to keep the team’s value at high levels. Nonetheless, this season we are witnessing a radical change in the balance between the two LA teams.

In fact, the Los Angeles Clippers can be characterized as the better product for the city of LA at the moment. They are the ones selling more, they are the ones that almost any fan in LA but also around the globe wants to watch. On the contrary, the Lakers are dead last in the West, they are playing awful basketball, they are lacking their superstar, Kobe Bryant and if we had to characterize them with one word, that one would be “decomposed”.

Blake Griffin LA Clippers Super Star

Griffin

It’s no secret that the Clippers are one of the most spectacular teams in the NBA, if not the most spectacular one. With Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan conquering the air and with Chris Paul and Jamal Crawford adding to the Clips’ stardom, Doc Rivers’s group is one of the hottest teams around the league. After their recent acquisitions, the Clippers are now considered to be one of the two strongest favorites for the title in the West, together with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

On the contrary, Lakers fans have all the rights to feel disappointed with their product. It’s not just about their awful record and not just about the fact that Kobe Bryant has missed all but six games this season. The Lakers seem like they have no plan, neither for this season nor for the next one. Lacking a bunch of draft picks over the next couple of years, the team is forced to carry the burden of the contract of the 40-year old Steve Nash, who is doubtful to ever be able to play the game again.

Chris Paul & Blake Griffin

CP3 & Griffin

All the above translate into a change in the “product value” for each team. On the one hand, the Clips are on the rise. On the other hand, a legendary team like the Lakers is tanking badly. Taking a look at the pricing of the tickets of each team in a game against the same opponent, the difference is obvious. The

Although face value of Lakers tickets is significantly higher then that of the Clippers the retail value has always reflected the same pricing until this year the Clippers retail Ticket prices for a game like Clippers Vs Thunder Tickets are just passed double the price of Lakers Vs Thunder Tickets. This is pretty much the first time in the history of the Clippers that their retail prices are higher then the Lakers.

Playoff Preview Between Clippers and Warriors

Warriors Vs Clippers Tickets

Warriors Vs Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers will host the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday, March 12. The game is projected to be spectacular and really fun to watch. The Clippers are one of the best in the NBA when it comes to providing moments of joy to the home crowd, thanks to the highflying from Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. On the other hand, the Warriors have the best shooting duo in the league, in Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson and if they start firing it up from outside they are really tough to be stopped.

The game will be difficult for either team but it will also be a statement one. The two teams could meet in the playoffs and even during the first round. The Clips currently rank fourth in the Western Conference but thanks to their recent additions and their great outputs, they have the potential to climb even higher. On the other hand, the Dubs currently occupy the sixth spot in the conference and they are projected to finish the regular season somewhere around that spot. This means they could face the Clippers in the first round. That’s why this game is so important.

Clippers Vs Warriors Tickets

Lob City

The Clips will have to make a good job defending their perimeter and also pick and roll situations. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson need just fractions of seconds before they get a shot up and sink it to the basket. The battle between David Lee and Blake Griffin will be an interesting one and a key to the outcome of the game. Griffin is the scoring leader for the Clips this season. If Lee manages to contain him below his season-averages, then the Dubs will greatly increase their chance to escape with a victory.

LA’s latest additions are certainly going to be a factor in this game, too. The Clips will need Danny Granger and Glen Davis to contribute, each one on the sector he’s best at. The Golden State Warriors’ reserves have just recently uplifted their performance and the Clips will have to make sure they can match the surge from their opponents. The Clips are expected to have Jamal Crawford back, who stayed out of action in the least two games due to a calf injury. Crawford’s contribution will certainly be a factor in the outcome of the game. The veteran guard is the second-leading scorer for LA this season. Chris Paul is also gradually getting his game back.

LA Clippers Vs Warriors

Griffin

The certainty is that this game will be exciting to watch for all the fans in the arena. As the both teams battle for the battle for top 5 spots in the western conference playoffs, we’ll certainly see some devastating dunks from Griffin and the rest of the highflyers, but we’re also expected to a bunch of threes going down. This will end up being a high-scoring game.

As of today the Clippers are sitting in fourth place in the Western Conference with 5th place Portland Trail Blazers only a half a game back which makes this Clippers Vs Warriors game that much more important as a possible preview of the first round playoffs.

Eminem and Rihanna The Monster Coming To Rose Bowl

Eminem Rihanna Tickets Rose Bowl

The Monster Tour

What happens if two of the biggest stars in the music industry team up together for a tour? It will be sheer talent and bringing of joy to the ears and hearts of those who put them in high regard.

Just recently, Rihanna and Eminem announced that they are going to go on tour together, and for obvious reasons, fans are going crazy in booking their tickets early because surely, this will be a concert that will have its tickets sold out way before the day of the concert.

This tour will be named Monster, which is the title of the most recent song collaboration that Rihanna and Eminem did. The tour may have become possible because of the songs as it has been in Billboard’s Hot 100 since December 2013. If you have a song that good to be in at the top spot for a very long time, you have to thank your fans for making it happen because one’s efforts is nothing if the fans do not support.
The Monster Tour is the pair’s way of saying thank you for the fan’s support.

They pair will be touring around the United States in three large cities – Pasadena at the Rose Bowl, New York, and Detroit. The pair is to unleash The Monster tour starting this summer in August, and so far, reports only mentioned the three cities reported earlier.

The Monster Tour: Eminem & Rihanna Tickets: Pasadena Rose Bowl August 7th.
Here is a view of the Rose Bowl set up for the Eminem & Rihanna concert. There will be two General Admission areas on the floor and regular seating in the other areas of the Bowl.

Rose Bowl seating chart

Rose Bowl

Eminem said that the collaboration for the song Monster is not a sequel or a re-visitation of their previous collaboration entitled “Love the Way You Lie” which also remained on top of the Billboard’s Hot 100 for seven weeks. The collaboration this time was leaning more on the nostalgic feeling of teaming up. The two have showed great chemistry in the songs that they have produced and recorded so far, and the results of that chemistry has been showing in how the public has accepted their songs so far.

Eminem also added that the chemistry and the great acceptance of the public to the songs that they release may have come from the public’s perception of the two music icons – they are nuts; crazy. There is some truth behind it. Both had their moments of unpredictability, and join similar personalities together and you have incredible songs that shows who they are.

Their personality shows in the way they sing the song and in the way they project in the music video. You can clearly see that they are into the song.

For the moment, the two are on separate projects with Eminem doing a tour in Australia named Rapture along with Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole; a big ticket as well. Rihanna on the other hand is having another successful collaboration, this time with the Colombian singer Shakira with the song “Can’t Remember to Forget You.”

Should The Lakers Tank?

Lakers Home Court

Staples

It’s been a tough month since the return of Kobe Bryant for the Los Angeles Lakers. Prior to the return of their superstar the Lakers were contending for the 8th seed in the Western Conference with a revitalized young roster playing a more exciting brand of basketball. Upon Bryant’s return the Lakers struggled incorporating their star back into the lineup. Less than two weeks into his comeback Bryant suffered another injury, putting him on the shelf for six weeks and sending the Lakers into a tailspin. Since Bryant returned on December 8 versus the Toronto Raptors the Lakers are 4-13, including a current streak where they’ve lost nine of ten games. The poor run of play includes STAPLES Center losses versus Philadelphia, Milwaukee and Utah. The Lakers are now third from last in the Western Conference, just two and a half games up on last place Utah. Even with the return of Kobe Bryant the playoffs are unlikely for the Lakers this season, giving Lakers management some big decisions to make regarding whether or not to hold a fire sale before the trade deadline. The presence of one of the greatest college draft classes in years has once again brought up the possibility of teams ‘tanking’ the season in order to get more ping pong balls in the lottery. The NBA’s system doesn’t guarantee the top draft pick to the worst team but the weighted lottery does give teams with the best record a higher chance of a low draft pick. Right now the Lakers are well-positioned to not only have the flexibility to add a max free agent after next season, they should be in the running to draft a potential future All Star in next June’s draft.

Should the Lakers tank the second half of the season?

They’ve earned the slack: The Lakers have continually put a winning product on the floor for decades, avoiding the full rebuilding process that many great franchises have gone through. Next to perhaps the San Antonio Spurs it’s difficult to find another NBA franchise that has had such continued excellence over the past 20 years. For that reason the Lakers have earned a bit of slack from their fan base.

The upcoming draft is important: Next June’s draft features one of the best crops in years with several potential All Star talents. A poor finish can mean a top five draft pick. Kansas center Joel Embiid and forward Andrew Wiggins, Kentucky power forward Julius Randle, Duke forward Jabari Parker, Oklahoma State guard Marcus Smart and Arizona forward Aaron Gordon should all be available in June’s draft and are potential difference makers. The selection of a top draft pick combined with the targeting of a key free agent could rebuild the Lakers roster quickly. This June’s draft is important since the Lakers traded their 2015 first round pick to Phoenix as part of the Steve Nash trade. It’s hard to imagine a proud franchise like the Lakers tanking the second half of the season, but if they are going to tank this is the year to do it.

Pau Gasol

Gasol

They need value for Gasol: The Lakers would be wise to deal Pau Gasol before the trade deadline. The potential Cavaliers trade which would have sent Gasol to Cleveland for Andrew Bynum (who would have been waived), fell through and the Bulls ended up making the deal. The Lakers need to determine quickly if Gasol is not in their long term plans. Dealing him and getting a package of players or an expiring contract to waive would help Los Angeles avoid the luxury tax while potentially picking up a player or draft pick. With the February 20 trade deadline fast approaching the Lakers should find a suitable place to ship Gasol, getting some value in return. Even with a player option for next season it’s questionable whether he would want to return. Letting Gasol walk for nothing next summer would free up cap space, but wouldn’t give the Lakers anything of value for a top ten NBA center.

Kobe Bryant Lakers

Kobe

The Lakers decision to re-sign Kobe Bryant to a 2 year/$48 million deal does limit their options over the next few seasons. At best they have the opportunity to sign one max free agent. Next offseason Kevin Love will have the ability to opt out of his contract and the former UCLA big man may be interested in moving back to Los Angeles. A good draft pick this year combined with moving Gasol for an asset and leveraging the Lakers remaining cap space well could give the Lakers the ability to contend after next season. The most important thing now though is to maximize their draft value this season.

No Paul No Problem For Clippers

Blake Griffin LA Clippers

Griffin

Playing without point guard Chris Paul the Los Angeles Clippers demonstrated depth and resiliency in going 3-0 on the week, all at STAPLES Center. The three game winning streak kept the Clippers a game up on the red hot Golden State Warriors for fourth place in the tough Western Conference. Los Angeles is four games behind the San Antonio Spurs for the top mark, and three games behind Portland and Oklahoma City who are in a tie for second place. The Clippers are in the midst of four days off before they host the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night. Following the Mavericks game the Clippers head off on the road.

Clippers

Week Recap: The Clippers kicked off the week with a twenty point victory over the Orlando Magic behind a huge performance from DeAndre Jordan. The Clippers center had a massive stat line consisting of 14 points, 17 rebounds and 8 blocked shots. The big story, behind Jordan, was the performance of Darren Collison, filling in for Chris Paul. Collison scored 19 of his 21 points in the second half to put the game away. Wednesday night the Clippers welcomed in the gritty Boston Celtics, the first time Doc Rivers faced his former team in Los Angeles. Blake Griffin scored 29 and Jamal Crawford chipped in 26 to help the Clippers run their home record to 16-3 on the season and notch another victory without Chris Paul. Darren Collison was steady at the point again with 15 points and 6 assists in the win. The Clippers strong play continued Friday night in their 123-87 destruction of the struggling Lakers. The Clippers outscored the Lakers by 18 in the first quarter and then outscored the Lakers by 24 in the third quarter to win the game going away. JJ Redick returned, scoring 19 points, part of a huge performance from the Clippers starting unit. Blake Griffin had 33 points and 12 boards while Darren Collison scored 20 in the blowout victory. The Clippers held the Lakers to just 34 percent shooting and 21 turnovers in the impressive victory.

The Week Ahead: The Clippers host the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night before heading off on what may be a season-defining seven game road trip. After hosting Dallas the Clippers round out the week with visits to the New York Knicks and Indiana Pacers. New York has struggled most of the season but is coming off an impressive win over the Miami Heat. Indiana currently has the top record in basketball and play in one of the toughest home environments in the NBA. Indiana will be a major test for the Clippers and should serve as a solid litmus test for how good the Clippers are without Chris Paul. By:Chris Michaels.
