Before they were the Los Angeles Clippers, they were the San Diego Clippers from 1979-1984 (in San Diego, with it’s sailing history, the Clippers name made even more sense).
Before they were the San Diego Clippers, they were the Buffalo Braves for eight seasons. A team that had Hall of Famer Bob McAdoo on it and was coached by Jack Ramsey a few years.
This season’s Clippers will be wearing the Buffalo throwbacks for a few games.
I like the look for a few games, although I wish they had gone with the Buffalo powder blue look, as Marc Stein of the New York Times pointed out, that is a classic look.
We’ll see how many games Kawhi Leonard and Paul George wear them, or if they will just watch their teammates wear them as they get a some rest. The Clippers will be the new kings of maintenance rest this regular season.
