Video: The Clippers are growing playoff beards

Apr 20, 2012, 2:45 PM EDT

Playoff beards — they’re not just for Canadian hockey players anymore.

The Clippers have decided to grow out playoff beards and they talked about it with Madelyn Burke of ClippersTV. Who by the way is the best comedic straight-woman in the history of television. Or she’s close. If you’ve watched Clipper videos this year they are all like this one — guys just walking through the frame doing whatever comes to mind. All we really needed was DJ asking where the bathroom was to make this complete. And she plays it straight the whole time.

Not sure if the beards will bring any playoff magic but the Clippers will need it — they are likely to land the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round, setting up the best first round matchup in all the playoffs. That is going to be a battle.

    Maybe they should have a playoff free throw practice session instead. Aren’t they near the bottom in the NBA?

    They should have started earlier if this is their playoff strategy.

    Gonna be tough to out-beard OJ Mayo and Marc Gasol of the Grizz, and they just better hope they don’t see the Thunder. Nobody is out-bearding James Harden!

    Griffin was also heard to say “Beards are easier to grow than an outside shot.”

    Funny bunch of guys off the court –sometimes it’s good to see teams just being themselves.
