08:14 AM ET 11.02 | Even at 0-2, the Lakers aren't the Clippers' favorite topic. Since the beginning of training camp, reporters have peppered players such as DeAndre Jordan with questions about "the other team," and while no one avoids it, Jordan admits he'd rather talk about something else. Since the beginning of training camp, reporters have peppered players such as DeAndre Jordan with questions about "the other team," and while no one avoids it, Jordan admits he'd rather talk about something else. "It is annoying. They're not the only team in the West. They're not the only team in the NBA," Jordan said. "It gets boring after awhile." ... "This is a great way to start the season, to play competitive games whether at home or on the road," former Laker Lamar Odom said.

Jordan actually looked much improved and pretty good against the Grizz.

if anything, I thought Griffin looked a bit under cooked. Foot work wasn't there and some poor decision making. But on paper, this team looks as loaded and any in either conference.

Lamar and Jordan (the wrong one) running off at the mouth.......they don't want to talk about it? Yeah, I'd say the Lakers are in their heads and yes, the Clippers are the same as the Nets....second rate and most of the time...flops!

Clippers will remain the second place team in LA until they win a ring, but that has to be annoying asking about the Lakers all the time. Clippers are setup to make the WCF if Blake ups his game in the playoffs. They can be just as good as Lakers, Spurs or OKC

The only dissent I can have with this is somehow the word flop doesn't right for the Clips. It carries with it the notion of a fall. But you have to be UP somewhere to fall and the Clips have always been at what we call Snout level when you have to look up to see above the curb.

I really hope Lakers make the playoffs. Chemistry is a crazy thing. You either get it right like them three girls in Miami or never get it like STAT & Melo... or maybe it's just Steve NoChampioship Nash.

This could be the year the Clipps take the baton from the Lakers if the Lakers don't get their act together. Just like what Kobe said, just shut up all of you ignorant people...lolIt's sad when Kobe agrees that the Princeton offense will work best for his team. He needs to tell Brown to scrap it. They're not taking advantage of their new players correctly.

I have to disagree & think many others would do the same. The clips had a pretty good season last year, went further than most predicted however that didn't make them a better franchise than the Lakers. The clips got a lot of work 2 do 2 catch up with the Lakers in that respect, bout 16 titles worth. Jus sayin....
