There are so many ways to get your 15 minutes of fame today. L.A. Clippers rookie Sindarius Thornwell found one other than being a former college basketball star and a professional hooper when he was incidentally became a part of the reality show, “Live PD”, last Friday.
So how did Thornwell ended up having a conversation with a cop on live TV? It all started when Thornwell’s girlfriend, who was chasing Thornwell’s car, was pulled over by Richland County deputy Danny Brown for speeding.
Of course, Thornwell had to turn back and stop his car, too, to check what was going on. It then led to one of the greatest moments in television history. Well, that might be a little bit of an exaggeration but it’s hilarious nonetheless.
Brown appeared to somehow recognize Thornwell when he asked the former South Carolina Gamecock “I know you from somewhere. Where you work at?” To that Thornwell simply responded with a hilarious “I don’t got a job” line, while wearing the same shirt he used to sign his three-year rookie contract with the Clippers worth$3.8 million.
Thornwell was the 48th overall pick in this year’s NBA Draft. He rose to fame in college, when he led the seventh-seeded Gamecocks all the way into the Final Four last April.
