Clipper Darrell switched up sides. I am both a Lakers and Clippers fan. I know that’s complicated for some. I explain the back story behind that HERE, but apparently I’m not the only one. Clippers super fan known everywhere as “Clipper Darrell” posted a photo on his Twitter page proclaiming that he had been recruited to the Lakers by Kobe Bryant. I am sorry to inform u that @kobebryant has recruited me pic.twitter.com/UKJR1CQs7Z — Clipper Darrell (@clipperdarrell) August 31, 2013   What brought this on? A joke between Kobe Bryant and Clipper Darrell. I’m wondering if Darrell simply has a thing for rooting for the underdog. I still want Clipper Darrell to get a new suit.
