Los Angeles Clippers star center DeAndre Jordan continues his summer antics tour. This time it was abroad in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
The 7-footer was seen hand rolling a paper with something in it, and also holding a lit “hand rolled cigarette” at one of Amsterdam’s infamous coffee shops.
Of course, if one were to try and prosecute him, there is no way it can it be proven what was actually in there. Then again, “burden of proof” has never applied to the paparazzi.
It’s kind of like the Chris Rock analogy: no one goes to Hooters for wings! No one goes to Amsterdam to smoke a Marlboro either.
The 25 year old Jordan was drafted 35th overall by the Clippers out of Texas A&M, and has played his entire six-year career with the Clippers. He has also started every game for the Clippers over the past two seasons.
Jordan posted a career year last year, with new career highs in minutes per game (35.0), rebounds (13.6, the first time he has averaged double digits in a season), blocks (2.5) and points (10.4, also the first time he has averaged double digits in a season).
Jordan has also started every playoff game over the last three seasons for the Clippers. This year his defensive dominance carried over into the post season as well. He averaged 12.5 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game.
The Clippers were ousted by the Oklahoma City Thunder in the conference semifinals in six games.
Considering all of the distractions the Clippers had during the post season, it’s a wonder they made it that far.
Is this yet another distraction? Stay tuned.
