The Los Angeles Clippers legitimized their existence on Wednesday night and finally agreed to acquire Chris Paul from the league-owned New Orleans Hornets. Putting the politics of the shady manner in which that transaction came to be aside for a moment, check out the hilarious reaction that Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan had to learning that Paul was about to come to town.
Griffin’s “Lob City” comment is particularly endearing, until you realize that this is the Clippers and that Donald Sterling will find a way to mess things up.
Meanwhile, in another part of the city, Eric Gordon found out he was being shipped off to New Orleans while doing a meet-and-greet with Clippers fans. Awkward.
