Mailbag 12/16: Jordan Answers Fan Questions
MIAMI – DeAndre Jordan continues to reel in honors after a summer that included First Team All-NBA and All-Defense nods and an Olympic gold medal.
Before taking off on the Clippers’ three-game road trip, Jordan was given his Olympic champion ring. Once the trip started, Jordan was given a game ball in Orlando for becoming the Clippers’ all-time blocks leader, with three against the Magic to go with 22 points and 12 rebounds.
Jordan took some time as the road trip shifts to Miami to dish out answers to fans’ questions, submitted to Clippers.com using “#LACmailbag” on Facebook and Twitter.
