I despise Bill Simmons though, this makes me think I could be wrong.

Terrible off the court? The Clippers team is among the closest off the court in the entire NBA.

Owner/Management/Coaching is what I am referring to. That's what it means 99.9999%, not the homo stuff.

Confused... ownership, management and coaching haven't been an issue at all the last few years. Sure Sterling is a scumbag and Vinny is a terrible coach but in the way that the team is being run they have done a fantastic job rebuilding since Blake Griffin.

Prove it.

If you're talking about the entire Nba, then clearly you have some sort of knowledge about all the player relationships on every team in the league.

A few writers have compared the Clippers off court chemistry to the early 00's Kings. These guys are constantly hanging out off the court, doing everything together. DJ and Griffin stay at each others house regularly. You can dig up pictures all over the place. It's safe to say they are one of the more tight knit off the court teams.

This is my perception from reading up on other teams and obviously seeing photos, articles etc... obviously there is no way ANYBODY can "prove" this. Just my observation/opinion. All of our new additions comment on how close the team is so that's one huge indicator. Jamal Crawford said closest team he's even been on, compared it to family and said he'd run through a wall for these guys. Barnes said best off court chemistry of any team he's been on and that it was welcoming from day 1.

Also you can always see the bench dancing together, goofing off and genuinely cheering their asses off for each other. Just a great player environment.

How many teams regularly have more than half the team going to dinner together, baseball games etc? This is a special group.

Bolded is a total contradiction. Add to that losing the GM.

Yea Grizzlies are definitely one of the closest off the court bunches too. Grizzlies, Clippers, Thunder stand out as teams that hang out constantly off the court and genuinely all love each other and treat each other like family. I mean the guys on the Clippers have football games all the time and BBQ, go to beach together, go to sports games. Hell the other day there was a picture taken from a party with Barnes, Butler, CP3, Arenas and DJ.

Idiotic, even by that idiot's standards. DeAndre Jordan would average 2-4 ppg if it wasn't for Paul putting the ball in his mouth 4-5 times a game.

FWIW, Simmons sees rifts, bad coaching and bad teammates everywhere other than in Boston, home of the blue-collar, hard-working, team first, Ubuntu Celtics.. who just lost one of their cornerstones to their fiercest rival after he feuded with one of the other cornerstones.

No one wants to play with CP. The Clippers signing multiple veterans, who wouldn't have gone there for under a billion before last season, and extending Blake are totally not related to CP 's arrival. And no one wants to play with Kobe, either, not Nash, not Howard... they just.. went there..

Kobe suckz!!!111 Problemz in Clipperland!1 Did you hear him? Those things!
