The Los Angeles Clippers aren't all that used to making the NBA Playoffs. So, you'll have to excuse them for overlooking the fact that playoff beards are usually reserved for hockey players, not basketball players. In this clip, Chris Paul & Co. explain why they've adopted the NHL tradition for their playoff run this season and divulge some top-secret information about the facial hair of a few select players (DeAndre Jordan can only grow hair on one side of his face—hahahahaha!). They also reveal that Clippers players aren't allowed to take their beards down, but that they are allowed to shape them up. Um, not for nothing, fellas, but doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose?

D'ah well! You're the Clippers and you're actually in the playoffs. So, just this once, we'll let it slide.
