So, your dad is one of the few and the proud -- no, not the Marines, I'm talking about the Clipper Nation. And now that the Los Angeles Clippers are the real deal, it's quite hip to be seen around L.A. representing the team that came within a single game of winning the Pacific Division this year. They might be out of the playoff mix, but Dad will still love any of these great Clippers gifts for Father's Day. And they're all available online at the Yahoo! Sports Shop.
1) This Blake Griffin gold coin photomint from The Highland Mint comes with an 8"x10" action image of the 2009 #1 NBA draft pick's high-flying dunks. There are two 24K gold-plated coins; one Clippers team coin and one piece commemorating the NBA. With only 1,000 of these made, this photomint makes a truly unique gift for Dad. $99.95.
2) Is Dad a Chris Paul fan? Of course he is. And now he can sport Paul's 2012 NBA West All-Star jersey from adidas. $59.95.
3) At first glance, this Silver Team Logo Pro Toaster looks like, well, an ordinary toaster with a Clippers logo pasted on it. But drop in a couple of slices of bread, wait a few minutes and -- POP!-- you've got Clippers-branded toast! It also has separate 'frozen' and 'reheat' settings as well as seven different timing settings. And with cool-touch housing, it's safe for the little ones. $39.95.
4) Dad can show his Clippers pride by flying this 3'x5' team logo flag in his garage, den, man-cave or just about anywhere -- it's made for either indoor or outdoor use, so Dad can show the whole neighborhood his Clipper love. $39.95.
5) Dad will love knocking back an ice cold one in this 15 oz. glass tankard. Emblazoned with a pewter Clippers logo to let his drinking buddies know that he supports L.A.'s best basketball team. $15.95.
Brett Wilkins has been a Clippers fan since they played at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena and is thrilled that the team he stuck with through feast and famine (OK, mostly just famine) is finally getting the respect and attention it deserves.
