The Los Angeles Clippers have been the NBA laughing-stock since they moved from San Diego to Los Angeles. On Sunday, they faced off against the superior team in Los Angeles, the Lakers. The Clippers lost by the score of 88-85 but that was not the only bad thing that happened to the Clippers.
Clippers forward Zach Randolph was pulled over early Monday morning for a DUI. Here is more of the story from the Los Angeles Times:
Clippers center Zach Randolph was arrested Monday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.
While driving a Rolls-Royce, Randolph was spotted weaving “in and out of [a] lane,” by two California Highway Patrol officers while driving southbound on the 405 freeway north at 2:25 a.m., spokesman Tony Garrett said.
“The officers made the traffic stop and detected an odor of alcohol from the vehicle,” Garrett said.
Randolph was arrested and transported to the downtown Men’s Central Jail, and was released on $5,000 bail.
The Clippers suspended Randolph for two games in light of this conduct. I honestly believe that the Clippers might be the closest team in the NBA to being “cursed” similar to the Cubs in Major League Baseball or the Cleveland Browns in the NFL.
I honestly believe that until either Donald Sterling ceases his ownership with the team or until they find a competent general manager, the Clippers will continue into their abyss.
Randolph needs to take some responsibility for his actions since driving under the influence is no laughing matter. The Clippers on the other hand, the laughs just keep on coming.
