The Clippers have spent most of the last two seasons fighting off the notion that they were all hype and not built for the postseason.

Well under new head coach Doc Rivers the Clippers are currently building a new identity and moving a different direction.

That includes the ending of the nickname "Lob City."

"Lob City doesn't exist anymore. Lob City is done" Griffin told ESPN's Shelley Smith in an interview this week. "We're moving on and we're going to find our identity during training camp and that will be our new city. No more Lob City.”

Griffin emphasized Rivers' defensive-minded focus and the Clippers' shift to their new offense. The arrival of Chris Paul two years ago joining alongside center DeAndre Jordan and Griffin made up for an uptempo exciting offense.

That will change this season.

"Our offense is going to have a totally different look this year" Griffin said. "Our offense is going to have a lot of movement and floor spacing. I'm looking forward to it."

Ending all lobs from the Clippers is almost impossible when the team possesses the two most athletic big men in the game. And Rivers knows that but he also knows what's best for the team.
