Clipper Darrell Rumors
Clipper Darrell, one of the NBA’s last quality clean hecklers, had Suns center Jermaine O’Neal’s attention in Wednesday’s first half. He got him to look on his usual “U-G-L-Y, you ain’t got no alibi” bit while at the free-throw line when the arena is mostly quiet. With Wesley Johnson, he got him to look and laugh with “Jermaine, who is that?”
The tournament was organized by Bigg City Bouree, a company that’s trying to standardize the Bourré rules and take the game mainstream in casinos from Las Vegas to Macau, a process that will possibly involve a reality show along the way. (Yep, that sentence exists). The “celebrity” part of the tournament didn’t quite materialize Friday, but Antoine Walker and Clipper Darrell were prominently involved, so I call it a success.
