'Clipper Darrell' Bailey not jumping ship to join Lakers' fan base

Darrell Bailey is arguably the Clippers' biggest fan.

After all, he's known as "Clipper Darrell."


He tweeted a picture Saturday suggesting he was ready to jump ship to join the Lakers' fan base.

Although not an official representative of the Clippers' organization, Bailey may be their most famous fan (after Billy Crystal).

A few hours later, Bailey posted a follow-up message revealing his photo in Lakers' colors (purple and gold) was nothing but an inside joke with Kobe Bryant.

Bailey can be seen in his traditional Clippers' colors with radio host Roger Lodge.

The Lakers and Clippers meet on opening night, Oct. 29, at Staples Center in a Lakers home game.
