The NBA has quickly made it a tradition to make their Christmas games special by having the teams dress in one-off alternate Christmas jerseys. The practice makes the games feel more celebratory and, not coincidentally, allows the NBA to sell even more jerseys. And while the past couple of years have been an unmitigated disaster
As a 26-year old making around $10 million a year, DeAndre Jordan has quite a bit of disposable income…more than you or I could probably ever dream of. The Clippers center’s latest big purchase was a brand new Can-Am Spyder, one of those three-wheeled motorcycles, that he dropped a pretty penny to trick out. Apparently, Jordan
It’s important to know your boundaries, especially when your coordination has been compromised by one too many adult beverages, but this intoxicated Clippers fan elected to overstep those boundaries. It is unclear how the altercation in the stands started, as the video picks up with the younger, smaller and more inebriated young man directing a
I know he just bought the Los Angeles Clippers for $2 billion, but could someone please remind Steve Ballmer that it’s just the preseason. Although, this reminds me, the NBA should mandate that all Clippers home games be required to have a Steve Ballmer Cam. Admit it, you’d tune in just for that (okay, fine,
We don’t fancy ourselves as avid readers of Bloomberg Businessweek, but we feel safe in saying there’s a good chance this is the first time someone has appeared on the cover wearing an NBA jersey. Naturally, the person wearing it isn’t even a player. It’s actually a rich, fat white guy who just happens to
The Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warriors made their preseason debuts Tuesday night at Staples Center, and decided to mark the occasion with a comically absurd back-and-forth turnover fest that probably left both sides thinking “thank god this doesn’t count”. Also, here is where we remind you that one of these teams (Clippers) is
There’s no “I” in “Team”, and thanks to Steve Ballmer, there will be no “i” in the Clippers’ organization under his new regime (knowing how competitive Ballmer is, he’d probably even change the Clippers’ name in order to eliminate the letter “i” entirely). In a piece published by Reuters late Wednesday, the former Microsoft CEO
The Memphis Grizzlies announced their promotional schedule today, and in addition to the usual assortment of popular fan giveaways — headbands, scarves, posters, camo hats (for military appreciation night) — the team has included some interesting new items. On March 14th, the first 5,000 fans through the gate will receive a Marc Gasol Growth Chart.
Blake Griffin is one of the more personable and entertaining players in the NBA, and he has certainly used that to cash in on a lot of sponsorships and ad deals already throughout his career. His latest ads, released this week, are a series of videos that feature the Clippers forward reciting slam poetry about
On Monday, the Los Angeles Clippers held a pep rally to welcome new owner Steve Ballmer to the team.

If anyone in Los Angeles is planning to stake a claim as the Clippers’ #1 fan, well, too bad. Because Shelly Sterling is now — officially — the Clippers’ #1 fan, and there’s nothing you can do about it. So, just how does one become the Clippers’ #1 fan? Easy, just sell them for $2
Probate court judge Michael Levanas of the California Superior Court ruled on Monday that Donald Sterling could not block the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers. Unsurprisingly, Levanas found Rochelle Sterling, Donald Sterling’s wife, to be the more credible witness of the two and he also ruled that sale of the team could begin immediately.
