Lang Whitaker from SLAM says: The Clippers are in danger of being evicted from the Staples Center next season, because the Stapler apparently makes more money from five concerts than from 40 Clippers games. The Clips apparently charge much less for tickets than the Lakers.
That would probably be the best thing that could happen to the Clippers. Actually, second best, as Sterling selling the team and Elgin Baylor deciding to accept the offer to become full time Emperor of Secaucus would probably be better than leaving L.A. Get out of L.A. and move to the Pond in Anaheim, where at the very least you aren't the second team in your own building.

Hinrich was high on the Lakers' wish list, so this is a loss for them. I remember that both Bibby and Hinrich have seen better days. Hinrich was a very capable #2 on the young post-Jordan Bulls and Bibby came within a Tim Donaghy of the Finals.
