Over the course of the Los Angeles Clippers' history, the team has been given many nicknames—some of them mocked owner Donald Sterling, while others mocked the history and sloppy play of the franchise.

However, like all things in sports, the bad becomes good at some point in time.  The additions of Blake Griffin and Chris Paul led to a transition not only in the Clippers' play, but also in the culture in the organization. 

The team became flashy, athletic and young.  They immediately earned the nickname Lob City, for good reason.  Chris Paul provided the lobs and Griffin and DeAndre Jordan finished with ferocity.

While the Lob City label is unlikely to fade anytime soon, it is always fun to take a broader look at the roster to see if any new nicknames arise from season to season.  This season, five new nicknames stood out.

Feel free to comment on them and to include your own!
