Answer:

The Clippers began play in the NBA as the Buffalo Braves in 1970. The Braves moved to San Diego in 1978. Sometimes when teams move to a new city they change their name. In this case, the team changed their name from the Braves to the Clippers to represent the boating and sailing that can be done off the coast of San Diego in the Pacific Ocean. The Clippers then moved to Los Angeles in 1984. Instead of changing their name, they kept Clippers as the nickname.
