Blake Griffin

  1. Griffin, Wall headline NBA’s All-Rookie team (as expected)

    May 11, 2011, 2:30 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    Usually my gut reaction is to just shred the voters when the NBA’s annual awards are announced. Because there always are some loopy choices. Except, with the All-Rookie teams announced Wednesday, I don’t hate it. First, so what we know we are talking about, here is your NBA All-Rookie first team: Blake Griffin, L.A. Clippers…

  2. Clippers looking to add a piece before lockout starts

    May 7, 2011, 10:33 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Here’s a sign of progress for the Clippers: They want to make trades so they can win now. They want to be in the playoffs next year. They like their core — Blake Griffin gives them a star, then they have Mo Williams at the point, Erik Gordon at the two, and the combo of…

  3. Miss watching games last night? How about some Blake Griffin?

    May 6, 2011, 8:19 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    After a month of playoff intensity, the basketball gods… well, actually the television executives that wanted to drag out the Heat/Celtics series more likely, decided to give us a night off. I didn’t like it either. To get a little fix we give you the compilation of Blake Griffin highlights the NBA kindly put together.…

  4. Blake Griffin the unanimous choice for Rookie of the Year

    May 4, 2011, 5:49 PM EDT

    Griffin Mosgov

    There was no drama surrounding this year’s Rookie of the Year selection. After missing the entirety of what would have been his rookie season, Blake Griffin exploded out of the gates in 2011 and never looked back. He put up some of the best numbers for a rookie forward in the last few decades, provided…

  5. Blake Griffin to be announced as Rookie of Year on Wednesday

    May 3, 2011, 8:52 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Here is the only bit of suspense about this announcement: Is it unanimous? And if it’s not, would the person who thinks Blake Griffin is not rookie of the year like to explain themselves. The Clippers have called for a “major announcement” Wednesday afternoon in Los Angeles, which will certainly be Griffin winning the award.…

  6. Video: Blake Griffin’s dunks, all 214 of them

    Apr 20, 2011, 8:15 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Blake Griffin‘s first two points of his NBA career came on an ally-oop dunk. By the end of his rookie season, he had 426 more points off of dunks. And thanks to the fine folks at NBA.com, we are going to bring you all of them. Hopefully next year we can watch him dunk in…

  7. Video: Top 10 plays of the regular season (plus a few more)

    Blake Griffin Dunk

    What a regular season. There were amazing finishes, amazing passes, spectacular dunks. And there was Blake Griffin. So to close out the regular season, we bring you the top 10 plays of the regular season. Well, really the top 10 categories of the regular season, that way some extra plays could be squeezed in there.…

  8. Video: Blake Griffin’s over-the-balcony trick shot

    Apr 12, 2011, 12:45 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    And you thought Blake Griffin didn’t have an outside shot. He’s got one, he just needs a balcony in the way, then he puts a little more arc under it. If there had been a car for him to shoot over too… Thanks to The Rookie Wall for finding this and sending it along.

  9. Video: Tony Allen with the Windmill dunk of the night

    Apr 6, 2011, 8:31 AM EDT

    tony allen

    In a game featuring Blake Griffin somebody else had the dunk of the night. It was Tony Allen on the breakaway, with time to put a little flourish on it. Make the home crowd happy. Didn’t really help the Grizzlies win, they fell to the Clippers. But it was fun.

  10. Blake Griffin seems resigned to hard fouls now, knows that he won’t get the calls

    Apr 2, 2011, 3:52 AM EDT

    blake-griffin-suns

    The Clippers completely mailed in their game with the Suns on Friday, falling behind by as many as 25 points in the fourth quarter before closing it up a bit and losing by a final of only 111-98. Despite the fact that L.A.’s junior NBA squad seems to be giving up on competing as scheduled,…

  11. Elgin Baylor’s lawsuit against Donald Sterling shot down by jury

    Mar 30, 2011, 4:19 PM EDT

    Image (1) dsterling-thumb-250x250-18407.jpg for post 3716

    Clippers Donald Sterling is still a despicable human being. A man with a laundry list of offenses of offenses from the serious (racial housing discrimination) to just screwing up his NBA team. This has not changed. But he has won key court battle. A jury Wednesday rejected a $2 million lawsuit brought by former Clippers…

  12. Video: JaVale McGee blocks Blake Griffin into the third row

    Mar 24, 2011, 9:08 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee from the Washington Wizards

    One night after he completed what still might be the block of the year, JaVale McGee put up one that could challenge it. In part part just because he was swatting Blake Griffin. Consider it some Dunk Contest payback. The impressive part of this is really that McGee gets just burned on the pump fake…

  13. Mo Williams was just what the Clippers needed

    Mar 22, 2011, 10:31 PM EDT

    Mo Williams Clippers

    On any given night, Baron Davis can be a better player than Mo Williams. Davis, when he is on, can be one of the more dynamic point guards in the league. Davis sees the court and sets up teammates in a way Williams does not. But Williams — the more consistent scorer — is a…

  14. Blake Griffin fouls out in spectacular fashion

    Mar 20, 2011, 10:32 PM EDT

    blake-griffin-gortat

    Late in the fourth quarter of the Clippers’ Sunday afternoon game against the Suns, Blake Griffin absolutely posterized Marcin Gortat. Taking off from the middle of lane, Griffin skied so high over the seven-footer that he literally threw the ball down into the basket to finish the play. NBA.com has the video, which you need…

  15. Blake Griffin’s trio of slam dunks

    Mar 20, 2011, 10:30 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, J.J. Hickson

    Blake Griffin was flying high and throwing it down with authority again Saturday afternoon at Staples Center. We’re not going to hold it against him that the dunks came against the Cleveland Cavaliers. They still count. And you NCAA fans can imagine how good Oklahoma would be if Blake Griffin were in his senior season…

  16. Could Clippers embarrassing owner drive Blake Griffin away?

    Mar 19, 2011, 11:40 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    We’ve all been there — working for a boss so bad you started plotting your way out from the first day you were on the job. We’ve all got the horror stories. Clipper GM Neil Olshey has said Blake Griffin will be a Clipper forever. You can bet that is the desire of the front…

  17. Blake Griffin is not gonna take it. No, he ain’t gonna take it. Anymore.

    Mar 17, 2011, 5:18 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Blake Griffin, you want to know how you’ve really made it? When opposing bloggers — like Liberty Ballers Wednesday night — write things like this about you: Griffin flopped and bitched the entire night en route to a disappointing 14 points, 8 rebounds and 6 fouls. Both Elton Brand and the Sixers’ team defense/gameplan deserve…

  18. This car dunk blows Blake Griffin’s away

    Mar 10, 2011, 12:51 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    We all know it, the Blake Griffin car dunk was style over substance. Sizzle not steak. Jessica Alba to Scarlett Johansson. (Hey, Scarlett can actually act.) Well meet Guy Dupey, part of the And1 crew. He pulled off this car dunk in Poland that blows Griffin’s away. This my friends is steak with the sizzle. Blake,…

  19. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Game winners everywhere, but the Clippers don’t need one

    Mar 10, 2011, 4:53 AM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Mo Williams

    What you missed while trying to recreate the movie “Up”… Clippers 108, Celtics 103: Boston had a plan — Blake Griffin was not going to beat them. It’s one thing that Boston’s defense has done well in this “big three era” — take away an opponent’s favorite option (sometimes two or three). Griffin was swarmed…

  20. Video: Blake Griffin goes Mars Blackmon to help USC tight end

    Mar 9, 2011, 7:35 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    USC tight end Jordan Cameron is like a lot of college football players right now — trying to get notice by scouts, to move up the draft board. He’s a gifted athlete — he played a couple of years of basketball at BYU, went to a juco then went to USC where he played a…

  21. Video: Did you know Blake Griffin is good at the ally-oop thing?

    Mar 8, 2011, 12:03 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin Dunk

    We hadn’t put up a video of Blake Griffin dunking in more than a week, and if we didn’t do it today we could have been drummed out of the NBA bloggers union. (Sure, there’s a union, and we voted J.E. Skeets president.) Blake helped us out by putting up a sweet ally-oop against the…

  22. Clippers Eric Gordon re-injures wrist, will miss games

    Mar 6, 2011, 8:00 AM EDT

    Eric Gordon injured

    All the flashes going off every time Blake Griffin goes up for a dunk blinded people to the fact the Clippers desperately missed Eric Gordon. He was the outside balance to Griffin, and it was Gordon that was the Clippers leading scorer (23.7 a game). The Clippers had gone 4-14 after Gordon went down Jan.…

  23. Video: Top Dunks from February

    Mar 4, 2011, 11:28 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin car dunk

    We may be four days late with this video, but it’s Friday night, did you really want to read a breakdown of the Nets/Raptors game? As one might expect, this has plenty of dunks from the All-Star Weekend Dunk Contest, but the good news is they didn’t put Blake Griffin’s Car Dunk number one. No,…

  24. Spending All-Star Weekend with Blake Griffin

    Mar 3, 2011, 2:26 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Because we can’t seem to get enough of all things Blake Griffin…. NBA TV is about to air a new show “24 Hours with Blake Griffin” starting Friday (the premiere is Friday, 6 p.m. Eastern). The show follows Griffin as he is the rock star of All-Star Weekend, doing the Rookie Challenge, the Slam Dunk…

  25. Blake Griffin introduces himself to Celtics, unsuspecting rim

    Feb 27, 2011, 11:26 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    The advantage of throwing alley-oop passes to Blake Griffin is you don’t have to do it particularly well. Randy Foye took advantage of that Saturday in the Clippers loss to the Celtics. Griffin runs the floor harder than any big in the game and he is out on the break calling for the lob, and…
