The design discussion began on Sunday (13Mar16) when Kanye made a plea to Clippers boss Steve Ballmer on Twitter, and asked if he would be allowed to makeover the team's mascot.

Kanye wrote, "Steve Ballmer, can I please redesign the Clippers mascot."

The Microsoft billionaire responded by asking the hip hop star to a lunch meeting, before suggesting they take in a game together at the Clippers' Staples Center home.

On Monday(14Mar16), Kanye responded by agreeing that they should meet up to discuss ideas and revealed he'd been spending time with one of the team's stars, Chris Paul, on the day he made his mascot design request.

"%1000 (sic) Steve Ballmer," Kanye wrote. "Let's meet this week if you have time. I was hanging with Chris Paul last night."

Ballmer is yet to publicly reply to Kanye's call to set a date for a meeting.

The Jesus Walks musician's offer to design a mascot comes just weeks after the basketball team unveiled their new mascot, Chuck the Condor.

Chuck, who was unveiled by the owner himself at a game last month (Feb16), has not been popular among fans of the Clippers partly due to his lack of connection with the team's history.
