Default Clippers Fans

Well since the NBA has been advertising their voting on NBA.com for the All Decade stuff, me being the huge Basketball/NBA fanatic/junkie that I am, got to thinking about All Time Teams for each franchise. Obviously some franchises have a longer history and tradition of top notch players than others, but it's still fun to see who would be the consensus All Franchise Teams going back to the very first NBA season to the present. I thought it might be a cool idea if I went to each team's forums and asked the fans of that team themselves who they felt were their favorite team's All Franchise Team. Once the All Franchise Team's were chosen, maybe we could post them on the main forum and it would be cool/interesting to see who have been the greatest players in a franchise's history according to the good fans of Insidehoops.com, and not some bigwig ESPN/media "experts" who rarely know what they're talking about anyways. So without further interruption, here's a list of players I've come up with to get this discussion going. Feel free to add others that I may have missed. You could choose five players based on each position, or just the five best players in general. So here we go:

Bill Walton
Bob McAdoo
Elton Brand
Randy Smith
Adrian Dantley
Dominique Wilkins
Ron Harper
World B. Free
Bob Kauffman
Terry Cummings
Elmore Smith
Danny Manning

Don't know if this has been done before or not, but I hadn't seen anything like this on ISH before. Hopefully we can get some cool results!

Well, I don't know much besides what I have read, but it seems like Bob McAdoo is the greatest in franchise history. Sam Cassell deserves a mention as well.

I looked at the list and kept saying to myself "He didn't play for the Clippers"
Even after Buffalo came to mind. I was a big Adrian Dantley fan when he played for the Lakers.....I didn't remember he played his rookie season with Buffalo. Most of the listed players are much better known for their play with other teams. It's stramge that Tom Chambers was left off the list.....not to mention Lamar Odom. I go WAY BACK and I didn't remember Bob Kauffman at all, I found out he only had 3 good years and made the all star team all 3, the other 4 years of his 7 year career were bad.
Bill Walton was an injured "Bust". Dominique was at the end.

The Clippers have only had 8 players selected to the All Star Team and a total of 16 appearances.

Man, to be perfectly honest, that list made me sad for the Clipper Fans...no joke.

I'm curious as to how Clippers fans feel about sharing an arena with the Lakers.....good or bad? I thought it was a horrible idea from day one.

My comments & questions are sincere, I'm not on here trolling for laughs or anything negative.
