The Los Angeles Clippers are a franchise doomed to never win anything. It doesn't matter if it's Donald Sterling or Steve Ballmer's billions owning the team. The Clips will never win an NBA title.
Hell, you can make the case that the Clippers will never make the NBA Finals. There are just some teams that'll never make it close to the championship round, regardless of how hard they try. The Clips are one of those teams.
In fact, the Clippers will never escape the enormous shadow of the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers are Hollywood's team, now and forever. The purple and gold have too much history and too many championships for the Clips to even carry any relevance. Hey, at least you have Clippy.
