Ice Cube on the L.A. Clippers: "They just need to go and I think Seattle really loves basketball"

The rivalry between the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers has been going around for over 3 decades and even though the Lakers are far more popular among the fans, objectively the Clippers have been a better franchise for a couple of years now.

Even though the Lakers signed LeBron James last summer and surrounded them with young but talented players, that wasn't enough for them to make the playoffs this season. Clippers, on the other hand, showed everyone you can legitimately have a good regular season with 48 wins without an All-Star. Apart from that, they also caused Warriors problems in the first round, playing with a lot of emotions and a competitive spirit.

The Clippers are right now nurturing a much better culture internally but the biggest fan base still belongs to the Lakers. In a recent interview Ice Cube who is known as an avid Lakers, a supporter said the Clippers don't stand a chance in Los Angeles and perhaps they should look for an opportunity to move to a different city.

"The Clippers don't have a chance out here to take the city. I am serious. I've been saying this since 1984. They don't have a chance, they just need to go and I think Seattle really loves basketball. Seattle really loves basketball. We have too many teams and that is how I feel. I will never change and there is no disrespect but it's just real. They can never have a city. They can win a championship one day maybe, but that will still not get them, Los Angeles."

It's highly unlikely Clippers will move from Los Angeles in the next couple of years, however, there are other opportunities out there that the Clippers management is probably aware of. Seattle might actually be a good option in the long run.
