DeAndre Jordan Says Centers Will ‘Never be Extinct’


DeAndre Jordan is about to become an Olympian, but he has still never been an All-Star. That’s largely because the NBA no longer creates a category for centers to start in the All-Star Game, a decision that has never sat well with the Los Angeles Clippers’ center.

“The game is definitely evolving. It’s becoming more guard-oriented. But at the same time we’ve got a lot of big guys who still kick ass,” Jordan said Wednesday after Team USA’s practice. “We’ll never be extinct, even though there’s no more ‘centers’ in the NBA … just call me a forward when you introduce me against starting lineups.”
