Patrick Beverley, Montrezl Harrell, Clippers players share their best, hilarious pickup lines
Kawhi Leonard and Paul George swiped right on the Los Angles Clippers this past offseason, but it was the rest of their teammates who were giving their own dating tips. The dating app Bumble, a sponsor of the Clippers that also appears on the team’s jerseys, partnered with the team to ask players about their own dating experiences.
Big man Montrezl Harrell was ask to share his go-to pick up line. “Hey girl,” he said. “Your feet tired? You’ve been running through my mind all day.” He then shook his head and smiled, seemingly surprised at his own cheesiness.
Point guard Patrick Beverly made headlines early this season, telling Steph Curry “The next five years are mine.” Apparently he has the same sense of confidence off the court. Recalling a line he said he’s used, Beverly asked “How are you doing?” He then answered himself, “Good.” Before responding with, “I didn’t say how you’re looking, I asked how you’re doing.”
When asked for some first date advice Beverly recommended some liquid courage. “Get there early, and take a shot,” he said.
At 5-2, the Clippers seem plenty confident on their own. Even with Paul George sidelined with shoulder surgery, the Clippers sit just half a game back of the first place Lakers, who they defeated opening night 112-102. They also have the second highest offensive rating, 112.2 and a defensive rating of 106.1, which is good for 16th in the league.
Absent from this video were both certified “fun guy” Leonard as well as George. The Clippers are hoping to get George back into the lineup this month, giving them of a cushion allowing them to rest Leonard more often. One of the team’s two losses came against on Oct. 30 the Utah Jazz, when the team sat Kawhi for load management. While keeping their stars healthy is clearly the primary concern, being able to mix and match Leonard and George will keep the team afloat on nights like last Wednesday when they want to sit one of their best players.
