It’s not easy for the Los Angeles Clippers to share a home arena with one of the most successful franchises in the NBA, but it is something that they have been getting used to. However, they are hoping to finally emerge from the Los Angeles Lakers shadow and they decided to make the first step covering up the Lakers championship banners.

The Lakers 16 NBA championship banners and some retired jerseys from the Laker greats were covered up by banners and images of current Clippers players.

You can see the makeover in the photo above.

The next step for the Clippers will be to finally live up to their talent level and find a way to charge through the Western Conference and get a banner of their own.

With the Lakers seemingly in rebuilding mode, now, more than ever before, is the perfect time for the Clippers to come charging forward and try to steal back Los Angeles.
