The Clippers are joining the storied tradition of growing playoff beards to build team unity for the postseason. Chris Paul says the players were discussing ideas for what they should do and they thought about growing their hair out. They ran into some trouble there because of the bald players like Chauncey Billups, so they settled on beards.
Here are some of the quirky highlights from the video:
- - Blake Griffin says he can’t grow a mustache
- Chris Paul said he can’t grow a full beard
- DeAndre Jordan only grows hair on one side of his face
Griffin said players aren’t allowed to take down their beards, but they can touch up the edges to keep it shapely. I dunno about that, a real playoff beard goes untouched.
