Terrell Owens releases a statement that he didn’t beg the Clippers to sign him

Free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens took the time to release a statement and deny that he ever begged the Los Angeles Clippers of the NBA to sign him.

Blake and Terrell are friends. The quote pulled from “The Dan Patrick Show” was taken completely out of context and subsequently made a great headline but is untrue. Terrell never begged to become a Clipper. He is a huge fan of the Clippers and of Blake’s. And as everyone knows, he can play a serious game of ball. When Blake was asked if there were any football players that he thought could play in the NBA, he named Terrell Owens and Calvin Johnson. It is not surprising that Terrell was at their practice facility this summer. One of his best friend’s, Jason Powell, is the head trainer for the Clippers. Diana Bianchini, publicist for Terrell Owens.

Either Blake Griffin or Owens is a liar and at this point I’ll go with Owens, since we all know he’s desperate for a job right now.
