The Clippers dance to ‘Gangnam Style’ while on the bench
The Clippers definitely have a sense of humor.
During a recent preseason game, Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, Caron Butler and Lamar Odom broke out into a dance while sitting on the bench.
Griffin, Jordan and Odom emulated the moves from Psy’s insanely popular hit “Gangnam Style” while Butler, well, did his own interpretation of the dance as he rubbed Odom’s head.
Buddha’s belly, meet your match?
Anyway, suffice it to say that this Clippers team enjoys being silly off of the court.
Last season, they took photos of each other sleeping on the team plane and Tweeted them out to their millions of followers, a pranking phenomenon that they dubbed “got em.”
“You got to have some type of fun,” former Clipper Reggie Evans said last season. “You miss your family and … your teammates [are] like your new family and stuff, so you might as well make the best of it instead of being around here down and depressed.”
Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, who is one of the ringleaders of the team’s funny antics, is also perusing in the comedy realm solo.
He recently appeared in a video in which he pretends to be blind while walking around Venice. Jordan bumps into people and objects and somehow isn’t recognized even though he’s 6-foot-11 and a starter on a team that made it to the Western Conference semifinals last season.
The Clippers’s regular season home opener is Oct. 31 against Memphis. Who knows what the team has in store for fans on Halloween evening.
