Quote:
The Los Angeles Clippers don't have any championship banners up at Staples Center, and Blake Griffin wants to keep it that way until they win an NBA title. [...]
"I kind of have bigger goals than that for the team," Griffin said. "I think the team has bigger goals than that. We expected to win the division. We didn't come into this season thinking, 'Oh, it would be great if we could win the division.' We expected it. It's something to be proud of and maybe there's a banner that goes up (in the training facility), but it's not something that needs to go up in Staples [center], and we don't need to hang our hat on that."
Every NBA team hangs division championship banners except for the Lakers and Boston Celtics, winners of 23 NBA titles. The Los Angeles Kings, who won the Stanley Cup last season and share Staples Center with the Lakers and Clippers, hang division and conference title banners.
Griffin's opinion wasn't shared by teammate Caron Butler. Butler, who has played for the Lakers, believes the Clippers should commemorate their first division title and 50-win season with a banner.
"For the first time, yes," Butler said. "It will be a special moment in history. Winning over 50 games and winning the division. Acquiring guys like Chris Paul and Blake Griffin and having the roster that we have, the expectations have soared through the roof. We're trying to build some momentum for years to come."

blake's opinion on the matter.

To be honest with you, I don't think the Clippers should hang a banner for this.

It would be look useless compared to the banners the Lakers have.

It's like bringing a fat girlfriend to a party where everyone has a model wife. Yes, you may not be a virgin and have a girlfriend but should have left her at home.

but then youre stuck at the party alone while everyone is with a girl? there really is no good answer to this. Hang it up and look silly, dont hang it up and a lot of ppl think you dont have a banner despite her being at home on the couch eating ice cream.
