Why would anyone want to be a Clipper fan? They're still an NBA team no matter the perception. Sure there aren't any titles, but that doesn't mean there's no reason to watch.
-When I've been in Los Angeles it was a common thing to score Clipper tickets on the day of game for pennies on the dollar.
-Following the career of Danny Manning was a treat for any fan of the game.
-Sterling's business philosophy is changing over recent years: Magette and Brand retained as RFA, the Baron Davis Contract, Kaman's extension when the coach was publicly campaigning for it, and the attempt to retain Brand in the summer of 2008.
-Ralph Lawler. A broadcasting style all his own, and any description I could offer just wouldn't do him justice. I'd recommend catching his work while the NBA league pss is free.
-Blake Griffin injury. This is basketball; players get injured.
-How can you blame the Clips for a "bust" like Darius Miles? He was an exciting player to watch while he was here, but how many other organizations had a chance to turn him around?
