In response to Duke4's comment:
I agree, in that the Clippers are the new dynasty in LA....as I stated in an earlier post, I watched them from courtside when they were the old Buffalo Braves....I actually have a vested interest in them from back in my youth......they have taken over LA and the Lakers are an old sinking ship....if my Celtics can't win it this year (and I am certain they won't) then I am 100% on board with the Clippers...
Now if you are seriously comparing the major sports teams in these two cities...I give you this..
NBA....Boston 17 titles...LA 11 titles
NFL.....Boston/New England 3 titles (as recently as 2004)......LA 1 title (1951)
MLB....Boston 8 titles...LA/Anaheim...6 titles (that includes a second team...the Angels)
NHL....Boston 5 titles...LA 1 title
so, as far as the four major sports go.....
Boston teams have won 33 titles
LA teams have won 19 titles
I'm sure at this point you probably want to start talking college sports right.....?
Los Angeles didn't even have major sports teams until the '50's, so how can you compare? The Red Sox went, what, a hundred years between titles? The Celtics have done what in the last quarter century? The Pats won their titles representing New England, not Boston. They haven't even played in Boston for those titles. Duke, you are an old relic, just like your city. And the Clippers represent us, not you. They thrashed your team and your jus trying to assuage your broken spirit. The Celtics are done, and have been done for a very long time. And you, Hedley and others are just p*ssed that we have to teams still thriving. There are still great expectatiions with the Lakers but the consensus is that the Cs are a one of the big dissappointment of the the season. They were expected to be right there with Miami, now they are in shambles.
I live in LA and believe you don't. Clipper fans hate the lakers as much as Celtics fans you fool. If you don't know that you haven't been to a Clipper game. Clippers fans are not Laker fans get it!
Definitely agree with you. You can't be a real fan of both teams that represent your city. It is like saying that I am a Yankees fan and Mets fan or NY Giants fan and NY Jets fan. It just doesn't make any sense. You are a fan of one team or the other, not both. In Boston we don't have a choice, but other cities do and they aren't fans of both teams. I have family that lives in Chicago and have always been Cubs fans. Even though, they haven't won anything in a while, a true fan is always a fan of that team.
