LOS ANGELES – Clippers point guard Raymond Felton reportedly reached out to the Oklahoma City Thunder in recent days trying to acquire a t-shirt made out of cupcakes, but was told the shirts he was inquiring about only had pictures of cupcakes on them and, in fact, were not edible.
Many Thunder fans wore t-shirts with a picture of a cupcake on them for the team’s home game against Kevin Durant and the Warriors on Saturday night, an attempt to mock Durant for being soft and a trolling attempt that received significant media coverage — especially after Golden State won with ease. Felton confirmed today that he did call a few contacts on the Thunder team to try to get as many of the shirts as he could.
“It was a little bit of a misunderstanding,” he said. “I had only heard about the shirts and not seen them, so I didn’t realize what they actually were. Obviously, I was disappointed to find out there are not shirts made of delicious pastries in existence that you can just walk around in public wearing, while gradually eating yourself shirtless. That’s always kind of been a dream of mine.”
The NBA veteran said he worked through his sadness by “crushing a couple gallons of peanut butter ripple ice cream” and feels he has put the issue behind him. Felton also said he has instructed his agent to tell Clippers management that he no longer demands a trade to Oklahoma City.
“The Clippers are the best place for me,” he said. “We’ve got a good team that can win it all and there are In-And-Outs around almost every corner. I’ve never been happier.”
