WHO SURPRISED 20,000 FANS WITH CHUCK TAYLOR ALL STAR SNEAKERS? MEET CHUCK, THE LA CLIPPERS MASCOT!
February 29, 2016 - LOS ANGELES, CA – Tonight’s star: Chuck. Tomorrow’s must-have: Red Chucks. The L.A. Clippers introduced their new mascot Chuck, a California Condor who personifies the passion and “be relentless” drive of team owner Steve Ballmer.
In addition to owning the NBA’s largest wingspan and flying up to speeds of 55mph (source: Chuck), Chuck knows how to electrify Clipper Nation. During a spectacular half-time debut featuring a tumbling display worthy of a world-class gymnogyps, Chuck also convinced Steve to throw down a dunk in front of a sold-out STAPLES Center. At Steve’s insistence, with dunk comes chucks, and the bird stuck true to his word, giving every fan in attendance a voucher for a pair of red high-top Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers.
Steve: “Chuck is my wingman, and I am PUMPED that he is officially part of Clipper Nation! Like me, Chuck loves the Clippers, and I want Clipper Nation to follow Chuck, wear shoes like Chuck, and cheer like crazy, JUST LIKE CHUCK!”
Each ticket-holding fan who received a voucher at STAPLES Center on February 29 can redeem their game-issued voucher for a single pair of red high-top Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers at www.clippers.com/CHUCK. To celebrate Chuck’s home area code and jersey number (213), fans also have an opportunity to earn one of 213 pairs of red high-top Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers by following Chuck on Twitter and Instagram, or ‘liking’ his page on Facebook.
Fans will be able to meet and experience Chuck at all Clippers home games and during community events and special appearances. To learn more about Chuck and his schedule, please visit www.clippers.com/CHUCK.
