Salley also went on to say the Clippers will be the best team in Los Angeles for the next five years. Despite dubbing Chris Paul and company as the top team in the city, Salley took a shot at the franchise saying they should change the team name to, “The Almost Lakers.”

If all goes according to plan, the Clippers will officially sell for a record-breaking $2 billion to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.

With the Clippers on the verge of new ownership, it is possible that drastic changes could be on the horizon. A possible change could be the name of the franchise in order to start with a clean slate under Ballmer.
