Curse of the Sacred Buffalo

If you’ve ever wondered why the Clippers are so abysmally horrible, ESPN presents a rather definitive guide.

May 1998: The Clips finally win another lottery. One month later, Elgin passes up sure things Mike Bibby, Paul Pierce, Vince Carter and Raef LaFrentz (as well as Dirk Nowitzki and Antawn Jamison) to select the one, the only, Mr. Michael Olowakandi. Trust me, this was absolutely idiotic at the time. The Kandi Man was already 23 and starred at something called “University of the Pacific.” Everyone hated this pick. Everyone. But asking Elgin to resist a troubled center with potential is like asking Ryan Reynolds to turn down a crappy script. You just can’t do it.

It should be noted that this article was written months before Griffin fractured his patella in late October.   A quick peek at their roster shows Kareem Rush suffering a torn ACL two days ago.  If you want the short version to all of this, The Onion has you covered.
