That will probably sail right over the heads of UCLA fans who still seem preoccupied watching replays of Jim Mora's news conference from Saturday after getting blown out by Stanford.
I understand. It beats watching replays of UCLA and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo playing basketball.
But enough about losers, what about the Clippers?
They were the NBA darlings just last week, better than the Lakers and a great feel-good story.
So what went wrong in this 105-98 loss to New Orleans?
Ralph Lawler doesn't hesitate when asked, pointing to his broadcasting partner and saying, "Mike Smith.''
So I tell Del Negro in his pregame presser, "Lawler says Smith is the problem,'' and Del Negro doesn't demand the statement be put in the form of a question.
"I would never disagree with Ralph,'' says Del Negro. And how refreshing it is to hear everyone laugh during a news conference.
Later, Del Negro talks about getting the Clippers back on track and not looking at opponents such as the Hornets as easy marks.
"But Lawler mumbled something about your next seven games are going to be easy,'' I tell Del Negro, reminding him he just said he's not one to disagree with Lawler.
"I'm sure Mike Smith gave him those statistics,'' says Del Negro. What a breath of fresh air.
And isn't that why folks like the Clippers?
They aren't the Lakers, which most nights makes Lob City more fun to watch. They are the underdogs with some bite now, and Hollywood star power in Chris Paul and Blake Griffin.
But are the Clippers afraid now of being good?
"I like that,'' says Del Negro. "A lot of guys haven't had the bull's eye on their chests before and there's a responsibility that goes with that.''
In other words, don't lose to teams such as Cleveland and Golden State or fail to show up in Atlanta.
Or really take a leap into the dumper and lose to New Orleans.
"We've got to compete at a higher level,'' Del Negro says, and that's before the game.
As I begin to ask a follow-up question, or maybe offer another statement, Del Negro stops me.
