Is It Time for Clippers to Receive Top Billing?

April 24, 1993

You've done it again. The Lakers lose and get a headline, while the Clippers win and make the playoffs and get second billing. Why do you bother running articles bemoaning the lack of respect for L.A.'s second basketball team when you are among the guilty parties?

We've noticed this second-rate treatment for quite some time, and thought that maybe, just maybe, having a better record, winning the season series and getting into the playoffs first would get the Clippers equal footing with the Lakers in the pages of The Times. Obviously not.

We understand that the Lakers have banners hanging from their rafters and many superstar alumni, while the Clippers have nothing, but does the largest newspaper in Los Angeles need to be reminded that it is indeed that, a newspaper, not a history book? At this point in time, the Clippers are the best basketball team in Los Angeles. See if you can give them some respect in the future, and if not that, some unbiased journalism.
