The Los Angeles Clippers are off to a better start to their season than the Lakers. The Clippers now have 32 wins on the season and the Lakers are still suffering even after they replaced the head coach they started the season with. The Clippers are getting some great play from guys like Chris Paul and Blake Griffin. Paul helped the Clippers to win over the Wizards last night scoring 22 points and Griffin added 17 points of his own. The fans in L.A. never claimed the Clippers the way they rallied around the Lakers. However, with the way the Clippers are playing this season and the great play they  had last season, it won’t take ling before the fans in L.A. start to abandon the Lakers and jump on board with the Clippers. The Clippers have almost twice as many wins this season as the Lakers do. The team is doing great while the Kobe led Lakers continue to make excuses as to why they aren’t winning games. It is only a matter of time before the fans see the truth and climb on board to support this winning franchise. The tide is going to turn in L.A. if the Clippers can continue to produce the kind of success they are having.  It is inevitable. Hey, if you are a Lakers fan tell us why you don’t claim the Clippers. Just leave your comments below….
