When news first came out that the Clippers wanted Clipper Darrell to drop “Clipper” from his nickname, many people were outraged. Even Clippers star players Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, and DeAndre Jordan expressed support for Clipper Darrell via Twitter. But it looks like the Clippers may have gotten to them.
Jimmy Traina pointed out on Twitter Thursday morning that both Griffin and Jordan deleted their tweets of support for Clipper Darrell, suggesting that the team asked them to remove the tweets. Chris Paul’s tweet of support remains, so either he refused to delete the tweet, or he hasn’t had a chance to. Here is a screenshot of all three tweets via SB Nation LA:
If you’re doubting that management would have asked the players to delete tweets that makes the team look bad, just remember this is the same organization that had a problem with the way one of its most ardent fans was supporting the franchise.Google+
