Clippers players charge room service to each other’s rooms on the road
If you ask me, the Clippers have come together quicker than expected. Once they acquired Chris Paul, you knew people were going to start paying attention to that other team in Los Angeles. The Clippers have as much talent as any team in the NBA, and they have been able to turn that talent into wins despite playing only 30 games together. What’s the secret? They’re having fun.
“We’ll go to each other’s room and just order a ton of room service,” Randy Foye said when discussing life on the road, according to the L.A. Times. “We’ll order from someone else’s room and say bring it here and we’ll put the bill on someone else’s room. The guys always do that.”
Foye said DeAndre Jordan seems to get the shaft most often since he’s “got a big contract” now. The Clippers have also been known to post pictures on Twitter of their teammates sleeping on the plane, along with capturing other embarrassing moments.
Chemistry off the court can be overrated at times, but with such a young team like L.A. it shouldn’t be overlooked. In order to succeed and keep pace with some of the better, more experienced teams in the West, the Clippers have to keep it loose. If sticking each other with room service bills helps them do that, I’m sure Vinny Del Negro will encourage them to keep it up.
