Blake Griffin ended up missing Team USA's last Olympic run because of a knee injury. Now, it seems like he's trying to get back on the bike. From ESPN's Marc Stein: "Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin will participate in next month’s USA Basketball minicamp in Las Vegas and hopes to play in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, a league source told ESPN." Griffin...
The situation with DeAndre Jordan bailing on the Dallas Mavericks and re-signing with the Los Angeles Clippers is basically unprecedented in the modern free agency era. Perhaps that is why Blake Griffin was unsure of how to handle it at first. In their lengthy behind-the-scenes look at how Jordan ended up staying in L.A., ESPN’s...Read More
In a wonderfully detailed piece of reporting, ESPN.com’s Ramona Shelbourne and Tim McMahon captured DeAndre Jordan’s odyssey from committed future Dallas Maverick to guy hiding inside his house so he could avoid Mark Cuban and stay with the Clippers. There are plenty of interesting nuggets, but one in particular sticks out — Clippers star Blake Griffin initially encouraged...
Hit us up on Twitter @CrossoverNBA Often, we ask people who are famous to do stuff there’s no chance in hell we’d be able to do in the same situation. I always say about the Malice at the Palace to those who criticized Ron Artest for going into the stands: “I’ll come chuck a beer at you at work and watch you read from the Book of Acts to me right after I do so.” Money...
The recruitment battle for DeAndre Jordan reached hilarious levels on Wednesday that are perfectly reflective of the means of communication in 2015. Upon learning that the Clippers were making arrangements to meet with Jordan in Houston after he began having second thoughts about signing with the Mavericks, Dallas’ Chandler Parsons tweeted a plane emoji to...Read More
Blake Griffin is one of the best players in the NBA ... but the Clippers star never forgets the fans. Griffin was spotted shooting a commercial on Venice Beach with director Jon Favreau (of 'Iron Man' and 'Swingers' fame) and, during a break, posed for photos and signed autographs for some kids. Griffin and Favreau were shooting a promo spot for Blake's new Jordan shoes, according...
The Los Angeles Clippers blew a 19-point lead in Game 6 of their Western Conference semifinals series with the Houston Rockets, then proceeded to lose Game 7 by a comfortable margin, reminding everyone about their ill-fated history as a franchise. Until becoming a winning franchise and, quite frankly, Western Conference power the past four seasons,...Read More
Watching Blake Griffin play basketball over the past two games really got me thinking. This was, at least in my opinion, one of the most overrated players in the NBA over the past couple years. Sure Griffin is 6’10” and 251, but too often we saw him get thrown off the low post by smaller, more physical big men. The outside game was surely there, and Griffin has always possessed...
The Clippers may have been the host team on Tuesday night in a 110-106 loss to the Golden State Warriors, but they were hardly the fan favorites. Warriors fans invaded Staples Center and turned it into a home environment for their beloved team, which ranks first in the Western Conference. Fans could be heard chanting...Read More
