Not Available Lead

The Los Angeles Clippers were eliminated from the NBA Playoffs today after somehow blowing a 3-1 series lead to the Houston Rockets. LA's favorite baseball team, the Dodgers, were in action at the same time this afternoon, and were informed of the Clippers loss by the PA announcer.

You would think that LA crowd would feel some sympathy for the Clippers, seeing as how they've taken the title of "most relevant basketball team in LA" away from the Lakers the past few seasons. You would be very wrong.

Despite having to watch players like Wayne Ellington, Jeremy Lin and Carlos Boozer meander aimlessly around the court all year, Los Angeles appears to very much still be a Lakers town. 

Well alright then. I guess when you loudly boo Chris Paul in the middle of a Dodgers game, that should have given us a clear hint about the Left Coast feels.
