The Clippers have a new mascot and his name is Chuck the Condor. At halftime of their game against the Brooklyn Nets (RIP Brooklyn Knight), the Converse All-Star wearing bird was officially unveiled to the masses.
“Chuck is my wingman, said Clippers owner Steve Ballmer. 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!”

To make things official, Chuck kinda put on his first halftime show of a few dance moves, poses and a trampoline dunk. BTW, Steve Ballmer also put down a dunk off a trampoline too. Why? Because he’s hardcore. JJ Redick was impressed.
Steve Ballmer DUNK ALERT!!!
The @LAClippers owner caught some SERIOUS air tonight!

“Ballmer was high-fiving people,” Redick said. “It seemed abnormally loud for a halftime. I came on the court and everybody was on their feet. I thought Vanilla Ice had done another halftime show or something. But no, it was Ballmer dunking. I saw the replay. It was pretty good.”
