Can the Clippers compete with Lakers’ legacy?

Los Angeles News Group columnist Mark Heisler wrote about the Clippers and what it takes to compete in L.A. in his Sunday column:

This is the NBA’s greatest fireworks show that’s slipped off the radar. Aside from their Lob City thrills, the Clippers are No. 2 in 3-pointers, making more than No. 4 Golden State with its Splash Brothers, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson.

No, the Clippers aren’t a wild and crazy bunch like some I could name locally. They’re No. 2 in 3-point accuracy to the Warriors’ No. 3.

As far as the “local rivalry,” goes, as the Lakers say, “What local rivalry?”

What do you think? Is the landscape changing? Has it already changed and the Lakers don’t know it? Read Heisler’s full column here.
