Me and Clipper Darrell
What’s good everyone? Man, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll tell you what, it sure is nice to be back home. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re in the middle of a three-game home stand right now before heading back on the road for three more games. Not sure if you saw us on our last road trip to Denver, L.A. and Sacramento, but we finished up pretty strong.
At our game in L.A. I got a chance to say whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s up to my man Clipper Darell, the guy who wears a half red, half blue suit and loves to heckle opponents. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s obviously a staple at Clippers games.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve known Clipper Darrell for a few years now. He came out to Vegas a couple of times to cheer for the Clippers during Summer League and I met him out there and we became friends. So every time I see him I make sure I talk to him for a little bit. I know when heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s yelling itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s all fun. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s nothing malicious. He just calls everybody “U-G-L-Y, ugly.” But heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s cool every time I see him. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a real good dude. He screams the loudest when IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m at the free throw line, so itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hard not to hear him.
I think the Staples Center is the only arena where someone has heckled me so much. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not to say I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get yelled at in other opposing arenas. People talk about my mom, my grandma, everything. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been called skinny, been told I need to eat, but itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s all good. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s nothing I get too upset over.
Well, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve got two more home games starting Friday against New Jersey. The boo birds will have to wait until we get to Charlotte next week. Any other famous/crazy fans I should no about in other arenas? Let me know in the comments section.
