You're a bit misleading here. The Clippers actually make profit, thus no revenue sharing needed. LA is a huge metropolis to where its stadium can accomodate a lot of fans. Usually it will be packed with other team's fans because the seats are cheaper than Laker seats.

The Clippers also share their playing field with two other professional teams, LA Lakers (NBA) and LA Kings (NHL). Thus saving them some money.

And as for not willing to win, that's a misnomer of an idea. I'm a Clippers fan and must attest that our sorry organization was sorry due to a terrible GM for several years. The owner doesn't know anything about basketball and relies on those he has hired. The GM that ran the Clippers to the ground and then under it is a Hall of Famer. So listening to the wrong people will lead to terrible decisions. The Clippers have the same owner, but have had many different GM's to help change the culture to where they have two of the top 10 players in the NBA. The Clippers haven't had players worth paying top dollar for before until the past 10 years. Now, it seems as though lots of players are willing to join the Clippers.
