Alfred Coffee: "We reserve the right to refuse service to Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, and anyone else affiliated with the Clippers Organization.”
After the Los Angeles Clippers made one of the most shocking power moves in sports history by acquiring superstars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George in short order, a local coffee chain apparently wasn’t happy with the previous dormant Clippers franchise possibly turning the tables on their former big brothers in purple and gold.
Previously rumored to be on the outside looking in for the services of the two-time Finals MVP, the Clippers leapt ahead of the Lakers and Toronto Raptors in the late hours on Friday to pull the rug out from under a Lakers team that was on the precipice of potentially putting together the greatest team in NBA history with a Big 3 of Kawhi, LeBron James, and Anthony Davis.
In response, the Los Angeles chain Alfred Coffee is now banning the Clippers duo from all nine locations locations in a tongue-and-cheek move on their social media accounts.
Who knows if The Board Man and PG-13 are coffee drinkers, but the posts have since been taken down on their official Instagram page, with dozens of fans now trolling every one of their recent posts making fun of the company for their ovatious PR stunt (That is apparently working).
