The Bleacher Creature

So long Lob City Has anybody checked on Clippers fans lately? Do we know if they’re doing all right? Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if they just ceased to exist altogether, either from jumping ship to the Lakers, quitting basketball altogether or spontaneously combusting from all the rage of decades of pent-up misery. Last week, […]
