The Los Angeles Clippers may finally be done living in the Lakers’ shadow, it seems.
Los Angeles has always been the Lakers’ city, with the Clippers looking more like the little brother, just like the Knicks and Nets in New York.
But that may be a thing of the past.
The Clippers managed to sign Kawhi Leonard — who is viewed by many to be the best player in the NBA — in free agency. Not only that, they also landed Paul George.
And they may be done sharing Staples Center with the Lakers, as the team provided the first look at a proposed new arena in Inglewood, which the Clippers would call home.
Looks pretty awesome, and we’d love to see it happen. The Clippers deserve their own venue, and if anyone can make it happen, it’s Steve Ballmer.
