LA Clippers Refused to Pray With the Golden State Warriors


Things weren’t just testy on the court during the Clippers’ 126-115 victory over the Warriors last night. The Clips reportedly wanted no part of the visitors during the pregame prayer service. Per the Contra Costa Times: “It’s a long-standing tradition for Christians on both teams to have chapel together. Each NBA arena offers this service to the players, and there is usually one time and one room. That wasn’t the case Thursday. According to multiple sources, the Warriors were surprisingly given a separate, earlier, time for their own chapel services. The Clippers held their own private chapel. ‘Man, they don’t want to have chapel with us?’ one team source asked. ‘I never heard that before, but OK.’ The bad blood between the Clippers and Warriors extend back to last season, when Golden State took 3 of 4 against Los Angeles. One of the biggest victories of the last season was an upset of the Clippers at Staples Center in the third game of the season. It was the game after Brandon Rush was lost for the season with a knee injury, and the Warriors responded with a spirited performance. The Clippers took exception to the Warriors’ celebration antics.”

    Jesus lovers beefing about how and when they pray to Jesus.

    Really?

  • JibbsIsBallin

    Its about ego more than anything.

  • JibbsIsBallin

    Related to the youtuve link video…Jordan has to mature if he wants to be part of the “big 3″ with the Clips. There was absolute no reason for him to go at Bogut like that. Well maybe except because he didn’t get to dunk on him and he Boguet played him tough on the post.

  • Cortez Mack

    Not to mention that Jordan has most likely NEVER been in a fight in his entire life after kindergarten.

    Blue chip high school athletes, especially big men, are not involved in too many parking lot brawls.

  • Dfrance

    Bogut has “bare knuckle basement brawler” written all over him. I’d just play ball.

  • Troop

    They should keep that poisonous cult out of the game anyways.

  • Dfrance

    I guess this is another one of Doc’s “toughen up the team” moves. Petty.

  • Dfrance

    Separation of poisonous cult and game?

  • Ben

    Oh the irony.

  • bike

    Since it was Halloween, the Clips wanted to have a private pagan ceremony where a goat was sacrificed. Doc had all the players drink the goat’s blood in another attempt to get the team out of their comfort zone.

    yeah, Bogut is probably the last dude in the league i’d f*ck with.

  • Dfrance

    I’d like to see him and Reggie Evans in a steel cage match. lol

    Every time I’ve seen a dude pull his shorts up and back up while barking he’s never been in a fight. It’s like a hippo that blows it’s nostrils hard and thrashes the water. Except the hippo will actually get after your a$$ lol

    hell in a cell, we should make it a fatal fourway with Pekovic & Ibaka

  • JibbsIsBallin

    And have the UFC octagon girls walk around just for the hell of it.

  • JibbsIsBallin

    You also have the guys that will take their shirt off for no reason before a fight starts. Those are the types of guys I like to see get knocked out.

  • guest

    cult noun, often attributive ˈkəlt

    : a small
    religious group that is not part of a larger and more accepted religion
    and that has beliefs regarded by many people as extreme or dangerous.
    -
    Christianity=not a cult; they are “a larger and more accepted religion”.

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    Yep it’s actually pretty pathetic. It’s just a tactic to distract people from finding out you don’t really want to fight.

  • Dagger

    I’d swap Zach Randolph for Evans in this scenario. Evans is too obsessed with candy to be badass.

  • JibbsIsBallin

    You can always throw Kendrick Perkins in their. He seems to be angry pretty much 24/7

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    We’ll settle it…..Elimination Chamber match Evans vs Z Bo vs Pek vs Ibaka vs Bogut vs Jordan

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    i think Zach Randolph may be too obsessed with food in general

  • Dfrance

    Did we really leave Metta World Peace outta this?

  • Anthony

    Where is the relevant but hilarious Patrice O’Neal “Elephant in the Room” clip where he talks about not praying with the other team…That would be perfect here. R.I.P. Patrice O’Neal

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    “World Peace destroys Reggie Evans”

    that’s the type of headline that grabs readers too.

  • LakeShow

    Word has it they were at Bohemian Grove worshiping the sacred owl.

  • Anthony

    I tell you I can’t understand this new…”Ball is Life” generation. They are all “Ball is Life”, “Ball is EVERYTHING” etc..etc…Then they don’t pass, dribble all day, call touch fouls, and want to be your buddy and hang out after the game. Geesh…when did I become an ornery ol’head…smh

  • Anthony

    AND…they were funny looking $20 socks…and highlighter colored shoes?!?

  • LakeShow

    Zaza Pachulia, and DJ Mbenga for added entertainment.

  • LakeShow

    This is a fantastic conversation.

  • Steve

    Well it worked ill take the W

  • Enigmatic

    James Johnson would destroy them all (maybe not, but he’s the only one who has fought in a legit MMA match and is 20-0 as a kickboxer…..)

  • Busta213

    Lol, it seems to be something new with them everyday now. See, the OLD Clippers prayed to Jesus – Docs got the new clippers praying to the red god!
    j/k

  • Max

    loool

  • Dfrance

    I’m please with the participation. lol

  • LakeShow

    I knew he was into MMA (same as Mbenga if I remember correctly?) But had no idea he was 20-0 kick boxer! wow!

    Kickboxing is maybe my favorite sport to watch… Such high paced and so much skilled footwork. It’s MMA and boxing put together with going to the ground essentially taken out… just awesome. I love Peter Aerts, Bahdr Hari and Semmy Shilt. (spell check haha)

  • Dfrance

    Never knew that, thanks for the tidbit.

    But this is not for trained fighters, strictly backalley psychos.

  • bike

    LMAO. That was Doc’s first choice until he found out all male members of the Buss family were/are members.

    The winner of the Chamber match gets Metta at Wrestlemania and they will try to “Defeat the Streak”

  • Jerome

    Where do the muslim players go before games? No in-stadium mosque, I bet?

  • The Philosopher

    And Bogut doesn’t like Black folks…

  • Dfrance

    I think its just a majority rules kinda thing. I’m sure Jewish, Buddhist, Scientologists, etc don’t have a special prayer group in the stadium either.

  • Uncle.Rukus

    Me neither.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    huh? why you think that?

  • Enigmatic

    Haha, very well then. Could we um, maybe toss Donald Sterling in there, too? Just because?

  • Dfrance
  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    ahhhh, i forgot about that episode.

  • The Philosopher

    Dfrance.

  • hubristick

    Do they walk all over your lawn, too?

    BTW, one “no passing” player got 15 assists, the other one got 9.

  • Interdico Scriptor

    Australians and racism… hmmm. Well, in response I just have to say things are different here. We’re not racist as a people at all and I feel Bogut’s comments just reflects his opinions. In Australia the wealth differential is much less than the US, and rich/bourgeois/poor live side by side; in fact the continent is like one of those Jehovah’s Witness posters with all the people holding hands and all the lambs playing with lions… well that’s us (except it’s dingoes playing with eastern-browns, but u get my drift). Australians as a whole just smoke up, make love and crawl out of bed to post inane comments on SLAM, that’s it.

  • J Du Bois

    Ibaka is too soft maybe Perkins of Keyon Martin
