Darrell Bailey, better known as Clipper Darrell, is a superfan of the Los Angeles Clippers of the National Basketball Association.

One of his usual chants is "Let's go Clippers!". A personal favorite of his is "U-G-L-Y, you ain’t got no alibi, you ugly!", which he directs at opposing players when they shoot free throws. in 2013 called him "one of the NBA’s last quality clean hecklers".

In 1984, Bailey was fired from his job as an electrician and told he would "never amount to anything". After hearing an announcer say the same about the Clippers, he decided to support the team. He was originally known as Dancing Man before changing to Clipper Darrell after a few radio appearances. He attended 386 consecutive games until the streak was broken by a trip to the hospital for high blood pressure. The New York Times called him "the team’s unofficial biggest fan". The Wall Street Journal wrote, "He’s perhaps the only superfan in the history of the Los Angeles Clippers." He is not an employee of the Clippers organization. In February 2012, there was a dispute with the team over the use of Clipper in his name. The Clippers accused him of capitalizing on the Clipper name, but later reached a mutual agreement that Bailey would notify the Clippers when appearing publicly as Clipper Darrell.
