This city's NBA fans are being jarred out of their comfort zone. Part of it is that we have lived so long and so happily with the Laker Show. Magic and Showtime became our birthright. We assumed there would always be another Magic, and we assumed right. His name was Kobe. No second name needed, here or anywhere. Part of that comfort zone was also the other guys. We're a big city, after all. Why not have two teams, one real and the other fodder for Hollywood and our comedy clubs.

Competing plans to build indoor arenas in Anaheim and Santa Ana will not be affected by this week's announcement that the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team probably will not be moving to Orange County, officials involved with the projects said Thursday.

Maybe J.J. Redick could play with his sore right hip, but Clippers Coach Doc Rivers is taking no chances with his starting shooting guard, who will sit out Wednesday night against the Portland Trail Blazers. Redick said his injury has improved, but he will listen to Rivers and miss his fourth straight game. "I don't think that I'll play tomorrow. That's what Doc says," Redick said. "It's a day-to-day thing. " With the All-Star break coming up Thursday through Sunday, Redick will have had two weeks off to make sure his hip is 100% healthy.

It's too early to write off the Clippers' season. Lamar Odom doesn't get that same benefit. He has failed. He let down his team, his fans, himself. When the Clippers need someone to take their hand and guide them in the right direction, their best player will wander off into a minimum five-game suspension for violating the league's anti-drug program, the NBA announced Monday. That's twice now.

After four of his starters played over 40 minutes Wednesday night in their 116-112 loss against the two-time defending champion Miami Heat, Clippers Coach Doc Rivers gave his team the day off Thursday. Jamal Crawford, starting at shooting guard in place of J.J. Redick (sore right hip) and also playing some backup point guard, played a team-high 46 minutes 38 seconds. Crawford finished with 31 points and six assists against the Heat. Blake Griffin logged 42:17 while scoring a season-high 43 points and having to defend LeBron James at times.

After playing three games in six days -- and five already in the new year -- the Clippers took the day off Thursday. Which is probably a good thing given the tough road ahead. And the emphasis there is on "road. " Because after Saturday's matinee against the Orlando Magic at Staples Center, the Clippers head out of town for three games in four days against teams that began Thursday a combined 14 games above .500. The last time the Clippers played consecutive games on the road against teams with winning records, they lost both of them, their only losses since November.

Looks like L.A. is going to need a few more paparazzi. You can't stroll Venice Beach or sit down to bacon-wrapped monkfish at Spago without spotting a superstar Laker or Clipper in the nation's new basketball capital. Here comes Dwight Howard, the latest in a long line of larger-than-life Lakers centers. There goes Steve Nash, the savviest point guard of his generation. And isn't that Kobe Bryant, the onetime star of stars who is now just one of the guys? Add the Lakers' Pau Gasol and the Clippers' Chris Paul and Blake Griffin and you have six All-Stars, three slam dunk contest champions and two most valuable players who call Staples Center home.

It's the most anticipated NBA season in Los Angeles history, so what are we waiting for? Oct. 30 -- The Lakers defeat the Dallas Mavericks by 55 points in the season opener. At least, this is the rumor. Nobody actually sees the game after it is revealed that Time Warner not only bought the Lakers' cable rights, but the live rights, meaning the entire home season will take place in Jim Buss' backyard while the neighbors are charged $3.95 per peek. Oct. 31 -- The Clippers defeat the Memphis Grizzlies by 55 points in the season opener.

The Clippers continued to put together an impressive roster, getting free-agent forward Grant Hill to agree to join the team Tuesday, according to NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. The Clippers still are working out the details on a two-year deal for the 6-foot-8 forward, but it's expected to be done soon. The Clippers could use the biannual exception that's a maximum two-year deal for $3.875 million on Hill. Or they could use the veteran's minimum that would be $1.3 million for a player such as Hill, who has 17 years of experience.

On one Los Angeles street corner, an NBA team is so giddy about the postseason, their players are growing unity beards. On another Los Angeles street corner, an NBA team is under so much pressure their hair is falling out. In one practice gym, surviving the first round would be a success. In another practice gym, anything less than surviving all of May would be a failure. In one Staples Center locker room this week, the Clippers are dancing into the playoffs with their best team in history and nothing to lose.
