New Clippers Catchphrase Already on a T-shirt

That didn’t take long. Per a report on SportsGrid.com, someone has quickly taken Clipper star Blake Griffin‘s exclamation of “Lob City!” and mocked it up at Skreened.com.

For $29.95, this new-era, Chris Paul-led Clippers alley-oop refrain can be yours. It’s all part of a two-word bit of marketing thunder innocently coined by the team’s Kia-jumping big man:

As soon as the words “lob city” left Griffin’s mouth, the sports world had a new catchphrase on its hands. All morning on radio, TV, and the Internet, it’s been “lob city” this, “lob city” that. You can’t get an update on the trade without hearing about this new, mythical city, where basketballs are constantly lobbed.

If interested, get your T-shirt order in pronto, as the item’s maker Ezra’s Closet may soon be hearing from a denizen of “Cease and Desist City.”
