The Los Angeles Clippers have a fantastic team, with Paul George at the tip of the spear, but they have to be self-aware and realize that they will never be comparable to the Los Angeles Lakers from a likeability standpoint. No matter how much the Clippers win, the Lakers are on top.

While LA is in the middle of a very vigorous football debate regarding who is the true ruler of this city, the basketball race has been decided long ago. The Clippers have been on the back foot the second after they moved from San Diego, and that has led to some embarrassing moments for some of their stars.

On top of the fact that the Clippers essentially play extra road games every year due to their home clashes with the Lakers being covered in forum blue and gold, George can’t even feel loved and respected when he attends football games as a spectator. His reception at Sunday’s Los Angeles Chargers game was quite awkward.

George was booed by both Chargers and Las Vegas Raiders fans in attendance at LA’s Week 1 victory. With these two fanbases trading so much venom over the last few months, coming together in their united hatred of George helped bring everyone together.

Paul George is not loved by LA, Lakers fans

Much like Justin Herbert and the Chargers, George’s Clippers will go into the year with championship expectations. The return of Kawhi Leonard and one of the deepest benches in the league should both be huge factors in LA’s less heralded team fighting for their first-ever Finals appearance.

There’s something ironic and hilarious about the Lakers being a tire fire with Russell Westbrook eating up most of the cap room and organizational disarray, yet still remaining the more beloved Los Angeles team. Feeling the heat in LA has to be awkward for George.

Maybe George should just stop going to football games. While he and Kawhi Leonard watched the Rams coast to their Super Bowl earlier this year, George was booed ferociously. Not even the presence of World Series hero Mookie Betts can shield George from this onslaught.

If George ends up winning a championship, yet still ends up getting booed in Los Angeles, that’s going to confirm beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Clippers can never match the fanfare and notoriety that the Lakers have accrued during their dynastic runs. He could’ve just come to the Lakers and avoided this!

Maybe San Diego will treat him better.
