The Onion doesn't have the CGI firepower director Roland Emmerich does, but in this morbid clip they destroy the Staples Center and kill all the Clippers and many of their fans with a buckled girder. With fans no longer forced to watch the game, "the sports world is breathing a sigh of relief," reports the anchor.
