Given what happened last night in Los Angeles, it’s interesting to note the Blue Jackets aren’t the first terrible team to have complained about a so-called clock malfunction at the Staples Center.

Here’s part of an Associated Press article from January of 2001:

The Lakers’ 113-112 overtime victory over the Vancouver Grizzlies on Jan. 11 was upheld by the NBA despite the Grizzlies’ protest. The Grizzlies argued that a clock malfunction gave the Lakers an extra three-tenths of a second, allowing [Shaquille] O’Neal to make the deciding basket.

In a related story, the Staples Center has changed its name to the Dirty Stinking Cheaters Center.

    I miss the Grizzlies. Basketball used to be fun to follow in the 90s, but I lost interest once we lost our franchise.

    Bring basketball to Seattle and Vancouver. Last year they would have met in the playoffs…would have been awesome
