Moments ago, Diddy & Ross took to Twitter to reveal that they would interested in investing in the L.A. based team who are now in the midst of a playoff battle with the Golden State Warriors. Ross first tweeted, “I’d be interested investing in @LAclippers !!!! Make It #WingstopArena @WingstopCEO Lets Goooo !!! Diddy later followed up with his tweet, “I will always be a Knicks fan, but I am a business man. #DiddyBuyTheClippers #NameYourPrice.”
