The secret tunnels at Staples Center are suddenly not-so secret anymore after Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul used them to access his former team’s locker room on Monday night. The Rockets locker room invasion made huge headlines and caused a lot of laughs, but also raised a lot of questions.
What exactly are these tunnels? Why are they there? And why can Chris Paul just roll through them without consequence if he has a problem with Blake Griffin and Austin Rivers? Such questions and chatter online prompted another former Clipper, J.J. Redick, to wonder if he needed to hold an “emergency podcast” to explain how the tunnels in the Los Angeles venue work.
And retweet led to quote retweet led to Jared Dudley mentioning a very interesting story about Stephen Curry once using the tunnels in 2014 to reach the Clippers locker room himself.
