Mavericks center DeAndre Jordan returned to the Staples Center on Thursday night.  After 10 seasons in Los Angeles, he received a video tribute and a warm welcome from Clippers fans.

Who knew DeAndre was such a beloved Clipper? The Clippers did kidnap him that one year to keep him from signing with Dallas, it didn’t work out and he still ended up leaving. 

The Clippers weren’t as friendly in his return and handed the Mavericks a 125-121 loss.  DeAndre did his part for the Mavericks by pulling down 22 rebounds.
