10. Chris Kaman

Seasons w/ the Clippers

8 (2003-2011)

Stats w/ the Clippers

11.8 PPG, 8.3 RPG, 1.3 APG, 1.9 Stocks, 48.7 FG%

If you just started watching the NBA in the last few years, this ranking will probably make you laugh. Although, believe it or not, Chris Kaman was quite the Clipper. The man who was the definition of a fundamental center was a mainstay in the starting lineup and formed a pretty solid duo with the soon-to-be-mentioned Elton Brand. His best season came in 2007-08 when Kaman put up 15.7 points and 12.7 rebounds per game. Kaman is fifth in games played, ninth in points and fifth in total rebounds. He actually made the All-Star game in the 2009-2010 season after a 19/9 first half of the season. Not too bad for a guy who is now known for the meme of him laying down on the Lakers bench, huh?

9. Ron Harper

Seasons w/ the Clippers

5 (1989-1994)

Stats w/ the Clippers

19.3 PPG, 5.5 RPG, 4.8 APG, 2.9 Stocks, 43.6 FG%

Yes, Ron Harper played, and starred, for the Los Angeles Clippers. Harper never averaged fewer than 18 points for the L.A.C (scoring averages of 23, 19, 18, 18, 20 in 5 seasons), but it would be in Chicago where he would become more revered than he was in Los Angeles. Harper is the eighth all-time leading scorer in team history, but he will forever be defined by his tenures on championship teams with the Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers.

8. World B. Free

Seasons w/ the Clippers

2 (1978-1980)

Stats w/ the Clippers

29.4 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 4.3 APG, 1.8 Stocks, 47.7 FG%

Besides having the coolest Clipper name of all-time, World B. Free played two short seasons with the San Diego Clippers, but holds the all-time franchise record for career points per game with 29.4 PPG. Free was also known for his signature dunks and aerial assaults on the rim; but it was his scoring prowess that earned him an All-Star appearance with the Clippers while scoring 30.2 points per game for the 1979-80 season. He may have only been a Clipper for 2 short years, but anytime you average nearly 30/4/4 for a franchise that has had more downs than ups, than you know damn well you are earning a top 10 spot on the list.

7. Corey Maggette

Seasons w/ the Clippers

8 (2000-2008)

Stats w/ the Clippers

17.3 PPG, 5.2 RPG, 2.4 APG, 1.0 Stocks, 44.8 FG%

A bowling ball attacking the rim, Corey Maggette is well known for his talents at drawing fouls and getting to the free-throw line. He was a multi-faceted scorer who lead the league in free-throws made and attempted. Everyone always expected Maggette to dominate the league a little more than he did, but he still put up some impressive years with the Clipps. His superior strength and athleticism allowed him to create and withstand contact which helped him average over 20 points per contest in three separate seasons in L.A. He was never an All-Star or considered an elite talent, but he certainly had himself a solid career, especially in L.A.C.
