Lou Williams, Montrezl Harrell, Patrick Beverley’s on extending Ralph Lawler’s career one more game
The Los Angeles Clippers lived to fight another day last night when they defeated the Golden State Warriors 129-121 in Game 5 of their playoff series. But they’re not the only ones who will be back for at least one more game.
Ralph Lawler, LA’s resident broadcaster will once again be one of the color commentators for Game 6, when the Warriors visit Staples Center.
Lawler started working for the franchise in 1978, when it was still the San Diego Clippers. He has called more than 3,100 games for the team and will definitely be a Hall of Famer when everything’s said and done.
Initially, Lawler wanted to announce his retirement during the team’s final home game, but the team management insisted that they wanted to celebrate him throughout the 2018-19 season, and that is exactly what happened.
The Clippers would definitely want to give Lawler a proper send-off, and the best way to do it is to pull an upset and eliminate the two-time defending champion Warriors from the playoffs. Sure, it is easier said than done, but the Clippers are surely doing their best to make it happen.
Lawler might not be around to see LA win a championship, but he will always be part of the franchise’s legacy.
