Residual Trade Effect: No Baron Davis = No Jessica Alba

24 02 2011

Before the NBA’s trade deadline struck today, the Los Angeles Clippers were able to ship away Baron Davis and the rest of his fat contract (2 years, roughly $28 million left after this year) along with this year’s 1st round draft pick to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for Mo Williams and Jamario Moon.

There were a whole lot of players moved today in one of the NBA’s craziest trade deadlines in years.

But the one thing that sticks out about this Clippers trade isn’t that Baron Davis got something in between an indirect middle finger from the Clippers front office and the NBA’s equivalent of a death sentence.

It wasn’t even that they threw away a potential top-10 draft pick this year to get a shoot-first pseudo-point guard who isn’t even shooting 39% from the floor and a former Harlem Globetrotter whose skill set consists of jumping nice and high.

No, the thing that sticks out is that the days of occasionally seeing Jessica Alba on the sidelines for a Clipper game are officially over.

Baron Davis went to Crossroads High School with Jessica Alba and her husband Cash Warren… which (I hate to admit) is pretty much the only reason Hollywood stars would go to a Clippers game.

And now that he’s not on the team, neither is Jessica.

Damn.

Don’t get me wrong, she is a babe of all babes to begin with…

But damn did she look good wearing Clippers gear.

Jessica, in case you didn’t know, being a Clippers fan isn’t easy… just ask Frankie Muniz.

Maybe you got out in time.
