I complain about the Clippers because my parents never loved me

Even when I brought home straight As, I never got an "atta boy!" or "way to go, champ!" My mother was as cold as Elsa from Frozen.

Because of this lack of affection, I now take out all of my frustration on a team that has no clue I'm alive. Rather than celebrate in their overall success, I am nitpicking why they aren't as dominant as the Jordan Bulls or Magic Lakers.

Yes, the Spurs are a worthy adversary and only a few teams are capable of beating them outright, yet we've managed to go toe-to-toe with them.

Huzzah! All hail the Clippers, new kings of LA!

[Isn't that what you wish every troll would confess?]

The media and the fans don't give a shit if we went toe-to-toe with them.  The same torment will continue....

However, this is a much better position to be in than the before time, when we would only win < 20 games.

Let's remember that.  I think our expectations are too high for this team, this is why there is unrest here.  Winning games isn't new to us anymore, but placing the bar for this team still is.

The Spurs have not played their usual basketball.  I've noticed their passing is a lot slower and off target.

We still have the richest owner in professional sports. I think the honeymoon will end and he'll put the best business people in place soon.  HE WANTS TO WIN!

I hope he didn't spend $2 billion just to have courtside seats for first round playoffs.

First of all, the guy who started a "trade ideas" thread after Game 3 should not be calling out people who are down on the team's chances for being "trolls."  Kind of hypocritical, don't you think?

Secondly, there's a huuuuuuge difference between wanting to see one measly Western Conference Finals appearance in our lifetimes (not even a championship!) and expecting our team to be as dominant as the Jordan Bulls.  That's an intellectually dishonest comparison and a strawman that you're using to justify your low expectations for this franchise.

Finally, going "toe-to-toe" with the other team in the first round is an accomplishment for teams like the Bucks, who have a lot of playoff neophytes on the roster and a bright future ahead of them.  It's not an accomplishment for a veteran team who had the higher seed and HCA going into the series, wants respect as a title contender, has won 50+ games in the regular season several years in a row, and is capped out with minimal opportunity to improve outside of the nuclear option (blowing it up and starting over).

I was actually poking fun at myself because I've been one of those negative trolls. I had to throw in that last line so my confession wouldn't be too real.

What grade were you when you got straight A's?  (I'm pretending you're confessing, and not mocking a troll.)

Is ClipperSisyphus's joke true or false this year?

 

He won't have courtside seats for the first round of the playoffs this year . . . because the Clippers aren't in the first round of the playoffs.

As for me, I've never expected the Clippers to be, "dominant as the Jordan Bulls or Magic Lakers."  The dominance I was demanding is like Russell's Celtics.
