With the Los Angeles Clippers recent rise in the West, there has naturally been a growing animosity between the fanbases that share Staplers Center.
Saturday night Clippers’ fans did nothing to help that tension, as they decided to hang balloons with Clippers’ colors from the Magic Johnson statue that sits outside the arena.
Johnson, in a typical fashion, simply laughed at the incident. However Los Angeles Lakers fans were not nearly as forgiving, erupting across the social media spectrum stating it was “disrespectful” and “classless”.

So, fair play or too far?
