The Los Angeles Clippers is an American professional basketball team that play in the Western Conference’s Pacific Division in the NBA. The Clippers were established in 1970 as part of the American Basketball Association (ABA). The franchise later moved to the NBA after the 1976 ABA-NBA merger.


The team was first founded as the Buffalo Braves. The team then moved to San Diego in 1978 and finally settled in Los Angeles in 1984. Being in Los Angeles, they were always overshadowed by the Los Angeles Lakers, but the franchise has worked hard to establish its identity in the NBA.


Throughout their journey, the Clippers have been home to some of the game's most electrifying talent and since 1999, the walls of their home Staples Center have seen moments of simply amazing basketball. From heart-stopping alley-oops to game-winning buzzer beaters, the Clippers have had some memorable moments in recent times. Their passionate fan base is affectionately known as "Clipper Nation.”

Later, they moved to Los Angeles in 1984, and this was where the stage was set for the franchise. Initially overshadowed by the already-established and immensely successful LA Lakers, the Clippers sought to forge their identity in the City of Angels.


Despite facing many seasons of adversity, their fortunes began to change in the 2000s. Through astute draft choices and strategic trades, they assembled squads that challenged the status quo, leading to memorable playoff runs and the birth of the 'Lob City' era.
