On our podcast, Matt Moore and I started wondering about a playoff series between the Clippers and Lakers and just how amazing that would be. Because think about this: We're sitting here talking about the Clippers potentially taking on the Lakers in the Western Conference Finals or something. It's possible.

Just insane.

The Staples Center, and before that The Forum, has belonged to the Lakers for forever, with the Clippers having extremely mild success. We've never seen this type of competition between the two teams. No one has ever considered it anything close to a rivalry because in order for it to be that, it has to be competitive. Which it is not. Sixteen championships to zero, a rivalry does not make.

It's been Laker domination but things could change. The city is buzzing not about Kobe and the Lakers for once, but about the guys owned by Donald Sterling. And so when Kobe was asked about what he thinks about the rise of the Clips and if there will finally be a rivalry, he gave a simple answer.

"It's about damn time," he said.

About damn time, indeed.
