It ads up

September 19, 2009

I noticed a Clippers ad in the sports section today saying "Chris Kaman is playing to win," and I prepared myself for another typical year of Clippers advertising -- preseason ads touting Clippers players gradually replaced by spots highlighting visiting teams' stars as the Clippers make their inevitable slide to the bottom of the standings.

Can you imagine seeing a Lakers ad that says "Kobe Bryant is playing to win?"

It must be the fallout from being a long-suffering local hockey fan that when I saw the Staples Center ad that read "It happens about once every 10 years," my first thought was "Kings make the playoffs?"
