With the comments made by Tim Leiweke, president of Anschutz Entertainment Group, which owns and operates Staples Center, it appears very likely that the L.A. Clippers will move to the Pond in Anaheim following this season.

Leiweke stated that the Staples Center makes more from about five concerts than it does over the course of a 41 home-game schedule of the Clippers.

The lease that Donald Sterling holds with the Staples Center runs out after this season, and it is likely that the operators of the Pond would give the Clippers a favorable deal to move down the 5 to Anaheim, particularly with the uncertain status of the Mighty Ducks of the NHL.

======================
Well, this is good and bad news for Laker fans in particular.
Good b/c the Clips would finally be gone but bad b/c Clips tickets are so much less expensive than Lakers tickets i/e an opportunity to watch the Lakers play twice a year at a much lower price.

It's probalby best for basketball to get the Clippers out of under the Lakers thumb. I just wonder if they will stay the LA Clippers or go with Anaheim Clippers.

Of course, what would be best for the Clippers is new ownership...

Anaheim Mighty Clippers anyone?

The Clips are one big money tree for Sterling, as he's seemed to figure out how to make money in the NBA without a winning team. Unless the NBA figures a way to get him out of the league he'll own that team for rest of his life.
