Kobe Bryant and Clipper Darrell are just having fun, you guys

There are a lot of famous basketball fans: Jack Nicholson, Spike Lee, Jay-Z, Chris Rock (and sometimes Lil Wayne and Justin Bieber, if they’re in a city with an NBA game happening and are able to find a hat emblazoned with the home team’s logo).

There are also a few notable NBA fans that aren’t quite as familiar to the public, but that basketball fans are certainly familiar with: namely Jimmy Goldstein and Clipper Darrell, both of which have gained a cult following for vastly different reasons. The latter is pretty prominent at the Vegas Summer League, but he’s also made some headlines for attempting a sleep-in to protest the lockout and nearly losing the right to keep calling himself Clipper Darrell in a near-snafu with Clippers’ brass.

The man known for screaming insults at players brought himself back in the news on Saturday when he posted the following on Twitter:

Twitter was abuzz considering Darrell has stuck with the Clippers through a long stretch of badness. Do not worry, though, because Eric Pincus of the Los Angeles Times did some investigative reporting and learned — through his sources — that it was just a joke, you guys.

Please go on enjoying the rest of your Labor Day weekend. There’s nothing to see here.

    Lakers traded for Clipper Darrell in exchange for Steve Blake and future steak dinner considerations.

    The difference is, all the others besides “Clipper Darrell”, have actually accomplished something in life beyond their fandom and aren’t trying to make a living out of it. Also, they’re not clowns. Well, except for Nicholson in a Batman movie.

    doesn’t this just prove that even the Greatest Biggest Clipper Fan of all is bandwagon, like MOST ALL clip fans??
