The Braves got switched out by the owner of the Boston Celtics in 1978, who wanted to own a team in his home state of California. The team relocated to San Diego in 1978 and got renamed as the San Diego Clippers. Then in 1984, the team relocated to Los Angeles through Donald Sterling and kept its nickname. It did rebrand itself as the LA Clippers, though. From 1984 through 1999, the LA Clippers played at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena.
