Default Clippers Staples Center lease expires in 2013-2014

What do you guys feel is the best decision? Stay in a top 3 NBA arena at a discounted price? Or get your own arena in San Diego or Anaheim and pay much more to renovate as well as the actual move itself? I'm really hoping Sterling listens to fans and makes the move so the Clippers can build their own legacy in their own building.

Do you guys think Sterling will go cheap again? Or will he prove us wrong?

Sharing a center must be horrible. Do they have 2 different locker rooms for the Lakers and Clippers?

Clippers should move to Anaheim to the Honda Center.

Honestly, an "image re-branding" of the Clippers from the LA Clippers to the California Clippers or Anaheim Clippers would held with setting a new era for them.

Wow... great question. In 13 years as a fan I'm not even sure . I would think so.... but not positive. I agree it would be a mental shadow looming to know you share a court. I guess it's not much different than sharing it with another sports team like Hockey though because it means it's not exclusively yours.

I was just told though that it's extremely unlikely. Clippers are selling out every game making a ton of money.

Too bad the Clippers owner and front office won't see it this very fair way. They will probably look at it purely from a business perspective .

Clippers should get the sweet lighting the Lakers have at the Staples Center.

That would be biting off the Lakers. One change I do want to see though is more sound effects. I LOVE when the cannons explode after big dunks. Reminds me of when I watched the Buccaneers a lot.

there are two locker rooms, the home and away. Thats it.

Lakers home games, the Lakers take the home locker room

Clipppers home games, the Clippers take the home locker room.

From what I've read, the away locker room is a POS compared to the home locker room.

But the Clips are staying in LA, the amount of press they get is amazing considering the team has been a basement dweller their entire existence. That don't happen if they are in SD or Anaheim. And Sterling loves being in LA. For him to move the team its gonna take someone to give him a crap load of money to do it

Staples Center looks stupid without it. When Shaq was on the Lakers the Staples Center looked dumb. It's sexy as hell now with the lights.

If we had Mark Cuban as an owner he would definitely move the team as well as build a new arena or renovate one .

Okay guys there are about 7 or 8 locker rooms that are exclusive. I just asked Eric Pincus of Hoopsworld.

He said the Clippers, Kings, Lakers, Sparks, away teams and a few spares are exclusively used.
