Clippers on KTLA and not blacked out! Are we turning back the clock? Hate this Spectrum crap, if only Lakers were back on KCAL too. LOL!


I think its a matter of supply and demand. If all the Clippers games were on Fox Sports nobody except die hard Clippers fans would care. So they have to put some games on KTLA to get some casual fans who otherwise wouldn't watch a Clipper game. On the other hand, theres far more Laker fans so they can put all their games behind the Spectrum paywall and you can't do much other than to pay for it.

To those who saw him play back in the day, is Ralph Sampson a good comparison for Wemby? I saw Game 5 of the 1986 WCF on ESPN Classic and YouTube, and that's who Wemby reminds me most of.


I’m not sure there is a good comparison for him. Maybe a more skilled Porzingis? He can shoot from 3 consistently while guarding the rim. He has good handles for a big man. His composure as a rookie is impressive.

Wembanyana is a next generalization player. He's a once in a lifetime player. 7'4" 8' wing span, blocks shots, defends guards and larger players, handles like a guard, mid range and 3pt shot. He has it all.

I'm surprised Milwaukee is getting beat on the offensive boards. They were #1 last season and are #27 today.

The in-season tournament bright court paint has to be a distraction for players. It is for me the viewer. LINK

I'm watching Miami vs Milwaukee. Shaq's announcing. He's giving the names of refs wgi are making bogus calls. Good thing that's not his day job.

I know it's early in the season but the Suns aren't playing like I thought they would.

I didn't know the Pacers were that good. Many were saying they shouldn't be here. They beat the favored Bucks.

Pistons have lost 25 games in a row and are 2-26 this season.

Detroit Basketball indeed.

Detroit has now lost an incredible 27 games in a row.

That is the all time NBA Record.

I'm watching the Grizzlies vs Sacramento game. Malik Monk is lighting it up. Why did we trade him? He would be a great fit here.

The Lakers had no money to offer Monk, he went to Sac to get paid.

Kevin Durant's travels have gone unrewarded. The Nets didn't work out and so far the Suns aren't either. He should have stayed with the Warriors. I think CP3's departure hurt the Suns. They don't have a true PG.

Westbrook is playing great for the SailBoat Crew. He's accepted the bench role and is playing team ball. Ty pulls him when he gets out of whack and he doesn't complain. Coaching is so important. Bron wanted Ty. I don't know why he wasn't signed.
