Clippers’ Ivica Zubac tells Lakers fans to ‘check our game out if you want to see good basketball’
The Lakers traded Zubac to the Clippers at the February trade deadline. The Clips are going to the playoffs, while LeBron James and Co. will be watching from home.
“A bunch of fans have come up to me and they say, ‘Why did we trade you? The Lakers front office did the biggest mistake,'” Zubac said Tuesday before the Clippers practiced at their training facility in Playa Vista, via Mirjam Swanson of the Southern California News Group.
“Everyone’s like, ‘We miss you.’ And I always say, ‘I’m on a better team now. You don’t have to be sad for me.’ And I always make sure to tell them, ‘Check our game out if you want to see good basketball.’ “
Ivica Zubac has appeared in 22 games with the Clippers. The 22-year-old is averaging 9.0 points and 7.5 rebounds while shooting 53.2 percent from the field.
Zubac is clearly happy to be on the better Los Angeles team. He was sharing minutes with JaVale McGee on the Lakers. Now, he’s the main center for a team which is looking to make noise in the playoffs.
