L.A. Clippers team owner Steve Ballmer is one of the most outspoken figures in all of North American expert sports as he definitely isn’t one to mince his words.

Throughout a current chat with Rachel Nichols of ESPN, Ballmer made a point to point out the significance of his Clippers ultimately having its own home arena.

As it stands today, the Clippers share Staples Center with its crosstown rival in the declared Los Angeles Lakers, a team that simply recorded the 2019-20 NBA title.

Obviously, Ballmer’s Clippers have actually been more than competitive for rather some time now in spite of the fact that the Lakers are the only Los Angeles professional basketball group to claim an NBA title– 17 of them to be precise.

With superstar swingmen Kawhi Leonard and Paul George currently running the show for the Clippers on the floor, L.A. stays in good hands moving on.

Nevertheless, the team will be heading in a little a various direction this season as previous head coach Doc Rivers is now leading the Philadelphia 76ers. In Rivers’ absence, it will be former Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue who will function as the brand-new head coach. Lue was an assistant coach under Rivers for the Clippers last season, so it won’t be an absolutely brand-new environment for Leonard, George, and business in 2020-21.

Because the Lakers, and the rest of the Western Conference, got significantly better this offseason, the Clippers are going to have to bring it if they’re going to stay near the top of the standings in 2020-21.
