The Clippers. Again.

Well, here we are again. You all, me, the Clippers. It’s like destiny. Or an ancient prophesy. Or an ancient prophesy foredooming us to a prophetic destiny. Maybe there’s a dragon involved. Maybe the most obscure town in East Texas is going to produce a crop of young heroes to save us all. Maybe Paul George’s sweatshirt never happened in a different reality.

Perhaps each panel of George’s sweatshirt represents a Jungian archetype, and each appalling pastel block is part of all our destinies, or our dreams, or our dreams of destiny. Perhaps Paul George’s Hero’s Journey will be cancelled because of his sweatshirt by a just and benevolent Collective Unconscious.

I doubt he paid anything less than $200 for that sweatshirt, yet I feel Goodwill must have some originals around, priced to sell for the value of their weight in musty cotton, or they have a red dot that means they’re $0.50 on Thursdays. I’d feel he was more of an authentic person if that’s how he got that bad colorblock memory he’s wearing.

Anyhow, polls are obligatory.


Will the sweatshirt change tonight’s outcome?

    Yes, they would have won, but the Collective Unconscious, and the Ghost of Joan Rivers gave the win to Houston.
