Published February 18, 2011
Meanwhile, Clippers F Blake Griffin appeared on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Host Jimmy Kimmel introduced Griffin by saying, “In only his first full season in the NBA, our next guest has done the seemingly impossible: He's made people want to go to the Clippers' games." Kimmel showed Griffin an ad in the L.A. Times for Clippers tickets that said he and Clippers G Eric Gordon would be with the team "for their careers." Griffin asked, "Is that real?" Kimmel: "That's real. … Do you have to abide by this? It's been printed here. Theoretically, people could now sue the Clippers if they buy tickets and you do not remain with the Clippers for the rest of your career." Griffin: "I didn't even think about that" (“Jimmy Kimmel Live,” ABC, 2/17).
