The original franchise that eventually became the Los Angeles Clippers was actually founded in 1970 as the Buffalo Braves. The Braves moved from Buffalo, New York to San Diego, California in 1978 and became known as the San Diego Clippers. In 1984, the Clippers moved to Los Angeles and took the name of that city.
Throughout much of its history, the Los Angeles Clippers franchise failed to see significant regular season or playoff success. The Clippers were frequently seen as an example of a perennial loser in American professional sports, drawing unfavorable comparisons to the historically successful Lakers, with whom they have shared a market since 1984 and an arena since 1999.
Los Angeles Clippers Ticket Holders would see their team’s fortunes turn in the early 2010s with the acquisition of core players Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, and Chris Paul. In 2013, the franchise won its first division title, as the team made the playoffs for the ninth time in franchise history and the third time in the previous 8 seasons.
They also added to their budding rivalry with the Lakers, as they finished with a better record than the Lakers for the fifth time and won the season series for the second time since moving to Los Angeles in 1984, this time in a sweep. The Los Angeles Clippers repeated as division champions in 2014.
Los Angeles Clippers Ticket Holders root for their underdog team the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles, an arena shared with fellow NBA team the Los Angeles Lakers. Tickets for all Clippers’ home games are available at Golden Tickets.
