    Default R.I.P. Lob City

    It seems as if blake Griffin and the rest of the clippers want to erase the lob city identity
    http://hangtime.blogs.nba.com/2013/1...s=iref:nbahpts

    “Lob City doesn’t exist anymore. Lob City is done. We’re moving on and we’re going to find our identity during training camp and that will be our new city. No more Lob City.”
    Of course, not everyone will feel the same way about the end of Lob City.
    Griffin, the 2010 NBA Slam Dunk champion, said he gets that.
    “People will still wear T-shirts,” Griffin said. “I can’t really go to people’s houses and take their T-shirts and cut them up. But we [will] have a new identity as a team and that’s going to be what we work out during training camp.
    So Lob city 2.0 .. Tdot<3 ?? lol

    your thoughts?

    This news will be greeted with smiles by guys like Brandon Knight, Kendrick Perkins, Timofey Mozgov and countless others who have found themselves on the wrong end a highlight from an encounter with the Clippers.
    loooooool dont worry demars still out there to dunk on yall

    They need to get serious on the court if they want to win big.

    Time is now for them.

    Why don't they just embrace the nickname? There's nothing wrong with it...

    Yeah, they were talking about this when NBA TV was broadcasting their training camp. (btw I never fully realized how STACKED their team is until I watched that)

    IMO the lobs aren't just for show, they actually help the flow of their offense. They have by far the most athletic 4&5 combo in the league, and DeAndre can't do anything other than dunk...

    they aren't getting no where with a nickname like that. Remember the time when Blake used to score every point of a dunk, there was nothing to his game he couldn't even shoot free throws, forget about mid range shots or treys.

    I guess its just a message to the fans and other teams that they are serious down there in LA. That they got their defense down pat most importantly that its not a circus anymore.

    Oooo, were changing our nickname. we mean business, yo!

    ..give me a break! You want to be taken serious? show it on the court and the nickname will adjust accordingly..

    they didn't get called "lob city" and then start alley-ooping in games. They started alley-ooping in games and got touted "lob city"...you earn a nickname from something that you're commonly associated with, you don't just randomly get a nickname and then start acting the ways that are associated with it.

    Do you people really believe that? that we're not going to see anymore high flying play from the lowly Clippers? come on. Blake Griffin probably was drunk while doin this interview.

    As long as Blake Griffin:
    a.) Is playing with the best point guard in the league, and
    b.) Basically can't shoot
    they'll be "Lob City" whether they've decided they're serious people now or not.

    Blake's gonna have to fix his shot chart if he wants to be known as more than just an alley-oop finisher: http://stats.nba.com/playerShotchart...de=performance
