On Nov. 16, we told you that it was pretty much locked in that he’d be rejoining the team — under the understanding that he’d keep himself in line.

Lamar Coming Back To The Clippers: It’s Always Been About His Actions
While Lamar has been in talks for some time to go back to the Clippers, they’ve always let him know that he’s responsible for his own actions — and now that may have just ruined it all.
“Things were at one time 90% solid of Lamar signing, as of yesterday (Nov. 21),” the source added. “Now that has drastically dipped and changed. The chances of Lamar signing with the Clippers has now turned into 20% at best after this video. It has always been about Lamar not ruining his chance and this may have done it.”
