Ball Don't Lie - NBA

You know Clipper Darrell. Sure you do. He's been to 385 straight Los Angeles Clippers home games, by far more than anyone on the roster of L.A.'s other team. Every game, he's the one in the shiny red and blue suit, leading cheers and generally being the happiest guy to ever attend a Clippers game. He's the guy that organized the LeBron James parade from a few weeks back. Sorry, Billy Crystal, but Clipper Darrell is the Clippers' biggest celebrity fan, even if he's only famous for being a Clippers fan.

So yeah, you know who he is. But you don't really know him. And trust me, you have no idea how much it costs to be the Clippers' No. 1 fan. Hint: a lot.

Well that's bit of an eye-opener, huh? I mean, buying nine seasons worth of Clippers season tickets is crazy to begin with, but spending $12,000 to customize a BMW 7-series is another level of devotion. And I don't even want to guess how much he's spent on memorabilia. Just know that it's enough to put your collection of six Hawks shirts to shame.

And even if you can't get behind the idea of being this big of a die-hard for a team with all of three winning seasons in the past two decades, you have to admit it's a little bit encouraging that Clipper D's got a wife. There's someone out there for everyone, you guys.
