Al-Farouq Aminu's Twitter Feed Reveals History of Offensive Comments

The tweets are five to six years in the past, but they're shocking. A post by imgur user JewishDoggy has revealed a history of tweets by Portland Trail Blazers forward Al-Farouq Aminu involving questionable and disturbing statements about homosexuality. The imgur page is titled, "Here's another collection of old tweets from NBA players". Aminu's tweets are part of a larger collection of thoughts by NBA players. Many of the submissions tread the boundaries of good taste; Aminu's cross into different territory. None of Aminu's tweets involving LGBTQ topics are more recent than 2011. Several...

Clippers Lose Chris Paul, Game, and Momentum to the Blazers

Al-Farouq Aminu breaks through for a career high as the Blazers surge to a series tie, but neither one is the defining story of the game. The Portland Trail Blazers defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 98-84 tonight, evening their series at 2-2 and stealing momentum in the process. The victory was only part of the story...in some ways the lesser part. The evening was dimmed, and the complexion of the series changed, by a mid-third quarter injury to Clippers point guard Chris Paul, later diagnosed as a broken shooting hand: Chris Paul has a third metacarpal fracture on his right hand and will...

As the Los Angeles Clippers took control in the second half of Game 1 against the Portland Trail Blazers, the Clips' reputation as complainers came into focus: As Al-Farouq Aminu was guarded in the corner by Blake Griffin, he placed his foot on the court. Griffin pointed out the foot and yelled to the ref that he was out of bounds. And, as per Blake's request, the referee blew the whistle and gave the ball to Los Angeles. Of course, one problem: Aminu wasn't out of...
