On the occasion of the NBA Draft Thursday night, Bill Simmons pens an epic column, couched as a warning to Blake Griffin that he should avoid signing with the Clippers and literally make a run for the border. Bill goes through the Clips' entire sordid, 30-year history of bad trades, bad drafts, bad coaching hires and bad luck.

You know, once Donald Sterling passes from the scene, someone should buy the team and pull a Tampa Bay Rays: change the name, change the colors, and pretty much admit that everything about the past sucked and must be totally abandoned. Unfortunately for Bill, and for Blake Griffin, that scenario seems many years away.
