In this town and the giants shadow cast over the clippers about a lakers all these years how important for both of you to lead his team out of that shadow I mean as far as the last few two years as far as a basketball standpoint <hes> the clippers out of them better <hes> you know they've been but <hes> it just is media. You know what I mean. <hes> they're going to get the attention <hes> knowing that Los Angeles Lakers. They've been winning championships for a long time but I go saying I it's just a media aspect even even if we do win. <hes> you know who who knows how to coverage change over and I don't feel like I'm focused on that. I'm just WanNa win and you know I do things make myself and my teammates happy UPI. Whatever is on our goal in mind <hes> you know that's going to be my focus and drive to just make us happy and if we go to the championship win and we're not getting no coverage? That's fine with me. <hes> how good I mean. I just think Lakers Lakers <hes> we got our own identity. We chasing something else. <hes> you know we we not looking at the battle of L._A.. <hes> you know we've got bigger things in mind and bigger goals to accomplish <hes> other than you know the shadow and like none of that really means anything you know they they gotta come out and perform the same way we gotta come out and perform. <hes> I think for us at the end of the day we wanna be holding that trophy and <hes> that's all that matters we'll build our legacy and we'll build our our clipper nation blown"
