When Chris Mullin started to get some positive reviews of his work following the miracle 2007 Clippers tank and Jason Richardson second half explosion, Robert Rowell grabbed the mic to say "I've been here for years!" On that note, another personal favorite from The Weasel. Here's Tim Kawakami asking the Shit Head about the Monta Ellis suspension that wrecked a full season and signaled the Mullin ouster once Nellie smelled the Rowell power play in progress:
-Q: Where does the $3M go? Does it come off the salary cap?
-ROWELL: It doesn’t come off the salary cap. It’s a suspension of the player and it actually will be a reduction in his salary for this season. It still sits on our cap for the year.
-Q: What will you do with the $3M?
-ROWELL: I can tell you this: Our season ticket-holders will benefit from the entire amount next season in their renewals.
No dipshit, that money goes to charity. I'm allowed to get that wrong. You, you lying fuck, are not.

Just because it's September 16th and Don Nelson is still the Head Coach even though Rowell could do whatever he wanted to about that. Right now. Except Joe and Kirk Lacob love the fat bastard. Oh yeah, the lineups:
