Did you reach out to former Clippers teammates Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan about your decision? Chris Paul: Absolutely, I reached out to D.J. and Blake and talked to some of those guys. Jamal Crawford, some of those guys. One of the people I reached out to and talked to was [actor/Clippers fan] Billy Crystal. You have different people that come to support you night in and night out. Joe and Sharon Hernandez, I used to give them dap before every game. A guy named Steve Soboroff, who sits courtside.
In the end, Griffin took only a single meeting. On Friday at Staples Center over a meal catered by stylish eatery Republique, Steve Ballmer, Doc Rivers and Jerry West, along with DeAndre Jordan and a few of the newcomers sent over from Houston in the Chris Paul deal made the hard sell to Griffin. He was presented with a veritable biopic of himself, and the prevailing theme was clear: He was the lifeblood of the Clippers, the team’s native son, an evolving star just beginning to scratch the surface of his leadership potential. Soon thereafter, Griffin committed to remaining with the Clippers, accepting a maximum offer hours before the NBA’s official July 1 starting gun sounded.
