Told Clippers I'm wearing # 14 this yr & I need medium shorts. They said medium shorts? I said yea like Stockton. Gonna be a fun yr #LobCity

That's right, the 6'7" Clipper will be wearing medium shorts on the court this season.

Never felt the big shorts. Short shorts wavy man. Fools in big shorts hoopin look like Bone Collector out there @t_finleey

This should be a sight to see this season. Lob City already gets enough attention, but this development should make for quite the spectacle.
