Longtime Clippers announcer Ralph Lawler and broadcast analyst Michael Smith were pulled from the Clippers' game last Friday against Denver. Because the Clippers' feed was not seen in Memphis, the comments about the Iranian-born player did not get a lot of attention and became a footnote in a 106-91 Grizzlies win last week.
One footnote: The Clippers will be hosting "Iranian Heritage Day" featuring Haddadi. They will offer discounted seats and fans who purchase tickets iwill also have a chance to meet the player and get an 8x10 photo.
