Clippers after deadline: Melting down on Twitter

February 28, 2011 | 11:25 pm

Clippers-sign_350 Lose a game to the Sacramento Kings and some of the Clippers go over the edge in a big way.

On twitter, of course.

Rookie guard Willie Warren, who was not active against the Kings, let his feelings be known first after Monday night's loss.

@Dagr8113: ive came to the point where I jus wanna go to school and live a normal life..this must not b for me cause this is ridic...cant take it.

He quickly removed the tweet, but on-the-ball Clippers fans spotted the message and it was retweeted by a couple of reporters in the press room after deadline. Maybe Warren got the word he was going back to Bakersfield of the D-League.

That wasn't all.

The affable, easy-going DeAndre Jordan did some lashing out, via Twitter, as well. He struggled against the Kings with six points as he made only two of six free throws, missing all four in the fourth quarter.

Shortly before the Clippers took off for their plane ride back to Los Angeles, Jordan tweeted this:

@deandrejordan: they love you when you're up and hate you when you're down...i really don't care. i don't play for you...

One final thought: Practice will be interesting tomorrow.
