"I'm not feeling too good right now," Bailey told ESPNLosAngeles.com by phone Wednesday. "They asked me not to be Clipper Darrell anymore. They don't want me to dance.

For 18 years, Darrell Bailey has been a fan of the most ridiculed franchise in professional sports. “Clipper Darrell,” is what most people know him as. He attends every home game of the Los Angeles Clippers usually wearing a suit that’s split equal parts red and blue. He even had a custom paint job for his car in the team’s colors: One half is red, the other blue. Yahoo! Sports
So when the Clippers announced Wednesday evening that they had acquired All-Star point guard Chris Paul from the New Orleans Hornets, Bailey had a fitting reaction: He cried. “Tears came rolling down my eyes. I couldn’t believe it,” Bailey said. “This is a dream come true. I hated to see Eric Gordon go, but Chris Paul is a game changer. Nobody is laughing right now. I’m getting hit on Twitter and Facebook about the Clippers from people that haven’t talked to me in six years. I can’t get them tickets. “It’s like a dream to me right now.” Yahoo! Sports
