The Los Angeles Clippers are an NBA team with a disappointing run-of-form, for the most part. This franchise has failed to capitalize on many of the opportunities that have come its way over the years. An inception in 1970, the Los Angeles Clippers were known as the Buffalo Braves. By 1978, the team had moved to San Diego and assumed the name of the LA Clippers. Team performances aside, the LA Clippers have created many NBA superstars over the years.
