Clipper Darrell Strike Lasted Only One Half
Clipper Darrell went from leading a fan parade begging LeBron to sign with the Clips to going on strike after the team started off 0-4. He said he was striking until the team started to put forth a full effort of hustle and heart for 48 minutes and that he would wear black while on strike.
Clipper Darrell showed up for Wednesday’s game against the Thunder in all black, but he did bring his famous suit in his car. After the Clippers stunned everyone getting out to a double-digit lead in the second quarter, he went out to his car at halftime to change into the suit. Here’s how he turned out by the end of the game when he posed for a pic with yours truly:
Clipper Darrell said after the game he was having drug addiction-like withdrawals and that he just couldn’t do it. Factoring into the strike ending — aside from the withdrawals — was that the Clippers actually played well, running the Thunder out of the building. Things may have been awkward for Kevin Durant after the loss, but all was well in Clipper Land. Now all we need is for Vinny Del Negro to sit down once in a while and stop blocking my damn view!
