Chris Paul And Blake Griffin's Injuries Occured 2 Years To The Day The Donald Sterling Tapes Were Leaked
April 25th: A day that will live in Clippers infamy.
Listen, I am not a big ghost guy, but has anyone checked Donald Sterling's pulse recently. This is just too much of a coincidence for me to wrap my head around. How many times has a prejudice owner of a professional sports franchise that's worth billions of dollars been strong-armed out of his position due to the leaking of a secretly taped recording? How many times have two star NBA players from the same team suffered season ending injuries in the same playoff game? Those answers are (literally) one and the same, and they both just happened to occur on the same exact day out of all 365 days? I don't buy it. Isn't the practice of Voodoo more of an African phenomenon? How much did that racist bigot have to pay to get someone to teach it to him? That old half dead corpse is sitting around on his plantation somewhere poking Chris Paul and Blake Griffin dolls with pins and needles. I couldn't be more sure of it. The Clippers finally had the smallest glimmer of hope to make the NBA Finals with Steph Curry going down. They had a chance to put all of Donald Sterling's losing in the past and finally become winners, and their roster immediately gets swarmed by injury bugs? That's straight out of a really terrible sports movie. No franchise's luck can possibly be that bad. This would be like the time Steve Bartman ruined the Cubs hopes and dreams if that took place on the same date as the start of the great Chicago fire. Just two treacherous, once and a lifetime events coinciding to share the same date? I never thought I believed in the supernatural, but I'll be damned if I don't believe in the ghosts of racists yet-to-pass. Especially when something that would warm their discriminatory heart so much happens mere hours before their BIRTHDAY!
