The "Lob City" era for the Los Angeles Clippers may have ended in disappointment, but there were some special moments along the way. The team back then enjoyed a level of success they never had before, largely thanks to Chris Paul and Blake Griffin.
Paul's arrival in LA in 2011 transformed what had been a losing franchise that had made the playoffs once since the turn of the century into a squad that regularly won over 50 games and they made the postseason every year that he was there. Despite this success, the relationship between their two stars was always called into question and by the end of their time together, it definitely seemed like there were some issues. Matt Barnes attributed the team's eventual failures to a disconnect between their Big 3, which included DeAndre Jordan, while JJ Redick said there was a sense of pettiness.
That wasn't always the case though, and their two biggest stars had even teamed up for a mini web series by Jordan Brand back in 2014. "BGCP3TV in HD" was a hilarious 2-episode series and the 2nd one, in particular, produced a ton of laughs. In the episode, Paul and Griffin enacted a parody of 'Beyond Scared Straight' on some children as they looked to set them straight about playing in the NBA.
(starts at the 2:28 mark):
The two are seen trying to scare kids who think it's easy to play professional basketball and there are a lot of fun moments here. Griffin warns them that there are no potato chips when you get to the league while Paul asks if they think it's easy to hit free throws with fans waving thundersticks behind the baskets.
Jabari Parker, who was the second overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, also joined in on the fun later, to cap off a thoroughly entertaining segment. We only wish there were more of these, as it was genuinely funny to watch.
