HoopsHype Tobi Oyedeji rumors

November 10, 2013 Updates

DeAndre Jordan honors his late friend and former Houston-area basketball recruit Tobi Oyedeji before every game with a simple message. Since Oyedeji was killed in a car accident in May 2010, Jordan has Tweeted “#35 @TobiOye...” sometime before tipoff of each Clippers game. On Saturday he’ll make an even grander gesture in Oyedji’s honor. Jordan, who grew up in nearby Bellaire, Texas, is hosting 35 underprivileged students at Toyota Center when the Clippers play the Rockets. “His number was 35, so I have 35 inner-city kids who are exceling in athletics and academics coming to the game tonight,” Jordan said. “It’s a thing I’m going to do for a very long time.” NBA.com
