Clipper Darrell jokes about leaving to Lakers after LeBron James signing

1 Comment

Darrell Bailey is a Los Angeles Clippers superfan. But maybe, just maybe, his allegiance wavered when LeBron James decided to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers.

On his Twitter on Wednesday, Clipper Darrell announced he was switching sides after LeBron decamped Cleveland for the purple and gold.

To be honest, it seemed like yet another odd free agent signing for the Lakers.

Via Twitter:

Of course, a day later Darrell came out and said that he would never root for the Lakers and that he would continue to be a Clipper superfan. The photo Darrell sent out was several years old, and if memory serves me it was from when the Lakers acquired Steve Nash and Dwight Howard.

If anything, this gambit was just promotion for his radio show.

The Lakers keep loading up with nemeses of LeBron James, including Rajon Rondo and Lance Stephenson.

Adding “Laker Darrell” would have been too much.
