Internet ROASTS DeAndre Jordan After Chris Paul & Blake Griffin Leave Clippers (TWEETS)
It seems like just yesterday when DeAndre Jordan was held hostage in his own home by Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, and other members of the Los Angeles Clippers who were eager to convince the big man to stay with the club.
In case you don’t remember, Jordan had already agreed in principle to a deal with the Dallas Mavericks. However, the deal was not yet official, so in a last-ditch effort, Paul and Griffin tried to convince DeAndre that they could have something special for year to come in L.A.
Of course, their plea worked, and DeAndre Jordan stiffed the Mavs in the eleventh hour to re-sign with the Clippers.
Fast forward two years later, and here we are. CP3 is on his way to Houston. Blake Griffin appears to be headed out the door as well after entering free agency. And now it’s just DeAndre left behind on what suddenly appears to be a bottom-of-the-barrel Clippers team.
This didn’t go unnoticed on Twitter, as everyone seemed to be having a laugh today at DeAndre Jordan’s expense. Here are some of the best Tweets:
Chris Paul and Blake Griffin really held DeAndre Jordan hostage so he’d stay just to leave him stranded in 2 years Lmaoooooooooooooo
