    Mentioning me in a post doesn't change my stance.

    You are talking about Jerry West. The freaking logo dude. Lol wtf? Of course they dont like Morey, probably has never dribbled a ball.

    Classic brains vs jocks.

    His money + Jerry west just may be what the clippers need to wash the stink off of their franchise. Two most important guys in their org.

    Unlike “broke” Tillman- he can afford to make deals that set them up for long term stability and focus on drastically increasing the net worth of the franchise instead of penny pinching to make sure he can make his debt payments.

    The diff between the two is like Jerry west vs morey. One is a real player working in shadows building dynasty after dynasty. The other is a gimmick, a one trick pony. Pursuing damaged goods and making good “value” deals that don’t move the needle but keeps him employed.

    Jerry west got him beat in both categories. Morey is a light weight ain’t even the same breed as the 82 year old west

    He was smart to buy a team that plays in LA, and he was smart to hire Jerry West.

    I wonder if people respect Jerry West too much and willing to do him favours because he’s the Logo.

    It’s like he’s a 99er and everyone else make threads about stuff we already know

    Tilman will be moving to Inglewood so he can take advantage of some of Ballmer's affordable housing programs.

    It's good to have a rich owner rather than a lower-class billionaire owner.

    I know there are lots of dumb Les Alexander fans out there
    Balmer doesn't lick China's butt for money like Les cause he's a global OG

    There is rich and there is RICH. Ballmer and the late Paul Allen are RICH. It's not a business for them, it's a hobby. Ballmer chose owning a basketball team versus gardening.

    It's not to get Jerry West when you can dump a wheel barrow full of money in front of him and tell him he can do whatever he wants with as money as he wants. Isn't Doc Rivers the highest paid basketball coach also?
