Blake Griffin

  1. Could Clippers embarrassing owner drive Blake Griffin away?

    Mar 19, 2011, 11:40 AM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 17, 2011, 5:18 PM EST

    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…

  3. This car dunk blows Blake Griffin’s away

    Mar 10, 2011, 12:51 PM EST

    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,…

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

    Mar 10, 2011, 4:53 AM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 9, 2011, 7:35 PM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 8, 2011, 12:03 PM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 6, 2011, 8:00 AM EST

    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.…

  8. Video: Top Dunks from February

    Mar 4, 2011, 11:28 PM EST

    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,…

  9. Spending All-Star Weekend with Blake Griffin

    Mar 3, 2011, 2:26 PM EST

    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…

  10. Blake Griffin introduces himself to Celtics, unsuspecting rim

    Feb 27, 2011, 11:26 AM EST

    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…

  11. Blake Griffin, selling you some Kias (and it worked)

    Feb 25, 2011, 4:45 PM EST

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Blake Griffin almost didn’t do the car dunk. Because there was a lot of paperwork to get done. Seriously. See Kia knew they wanted to do a commercial out of it so Blake’s people and Kia’s people (and a bunch of lawyers) got together and drew up the papers well in advance. Then it dawned…

  12. DeMar DeRozan is done with the prop dunk contest

    Feb 22, 2011, 3:23 PM EST

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    DeMar DeRozan came out and really rocked it last weekend. Not like Lenny Kravitz, we mean in a good way. He came out for the dunk contest Saturday and threw it down old school. Forget the cars and the second backboard and stuffed animals hanging from the rim. He came out and just dunked. He…

  13. Danilo Gallinari to the…. Clippers?

    Feb 22, 2011, 11:47 AM EST

    Image (1) Gallinari_celebrates-thumb-250x166-20310.jpg for post 6298

    Danilo Gallinari is a Denver Nugget. Right now. Right now, anyway. He came to the Rocky Mountains from the Knicks in the deal that sent Carmelo Anthony to where the bright lights will inspire him. But no source we spoke with expects the Nuggets to hang on to Gallinari. Maybe they should — he is…

  14. Video: DeMar DeRozan’s “Show Stopper” dunk, in slow-motion

    Feb 21, 2011, 5:55 PM EST

    DeMar DeRozan of the Toronto Raptors (L)

    One last trip back to the Saturday night dunk contest, something fun to watch on a game-free night. On a night with dunks over cars and stuffed animals grabbed in people’s mouths, Toronto’s DeMar DeRozan may have had the best of the non-prop dunks. You can argue that Blake Griffin’s tornado dunk was better, but…

  15. All-Star Game draws best ratings since Jordan era

    Feb 21, 2011, 5:05 PM EST

    2011 NBA All-Star Game - Performances And Celebrities

    It was more than just Rihanna and Drake (and Kanye). It certainly was more than Lenny Kravitz. It’s the game. The NBA is as hot as it has been since the Jordan era and that continued again Sunday — the All-Star Game from Staples Center had 9.1 million people tune in to watch, the highest…

  16. Biggest winners and losers at the All-Star game

    Feb 21, 2011, 1:19 AM EST

    Musician Lenny Kravitz (R) returns a loo

    The All-Star game is an exhibition first and foremost, and when players are trying harder to entertain the crowd than they are to play good basketball, it’s hard to put too much stock into the results. Still, this year’s All-Star game was one of the most entertaining and competitive games in years, and a few…

  17. Video: Blake Griffin dunks over a car

    Feb 20, 2011, 10:45 AM EST

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    This is the dunk everybody is talking about. It wasn’t even the best dunk of the night (not in our rankings) but it was something you have never seen before. It was a spectacle. It was entertaining. It was Blake Griffin winning the NBA Dunk Contest. It was the dunk that in three years everyone…

  18. Blake Griffin jumps Dunk Contest over car, into new era of spectacle

    Feb 20, 2011, 12:40 AM EST

    Blake Griffin car dunk

    The days of the Dominique tomahawk are gone. The Jordan cradle dunk is a dinosaur. Throwing it off the backboard to yourself is passé. Blake Griffin dunked over a car while a gospel choir sang at midcourt. And he is your 2011 Slam Dunk Contest champion. It was impressive and entertaining. That, my friends, is…

  19. Ranking the dunks

    Feb 20, 2011, 12:39 AM EST

    JaVale McGee double dunk

    The 2011 All-Star Dunk Contest was one of the best  dunk contests in recent memory. There was pageantry, creativity, innovation, and some of the most memorable dunks we’ve seen in years. Blake Griffin won the contest with a dunk that was more about theater than amplitude, but the dunks that led to that point were…

    Saturday night’s alright for… dunk contests. And if you throw in a Skills Contest we’ll take it. No, we don’t really want the Shooting Stars, it’s okay. We’re going to be chatting live through all of it, feel free to jump in and have some fun.

  21. Dunk Contest preview: What’s with all the big guys?

    Feb 19, 2011, 11:50 AM EST

    Blake Griffin

    You know why Nate Robinson and Spud Webb won the dunk contest? Because we love to see the little guys who can get up. We mere mortals identify with guys who are not quite six foot jumping over Dwight Howard and throwing it down. This year’s Saturday night Dunk Contest? Battle of the big guys.…

  22. Rookies defeat sophomores, Wall given MVP

    Feb 19, 2011, 12:17 AM EST

    John Wall

    The first half of the 2011 Rookie/Sophomore challenge only vaguely resembled basketball. None of the players on either side of the court even pretended to play defense, and stood under the basket and watch their opponents launch threes. Fast-break dunks after made baskets were common. Alley-oops were being thrown down every minute or so. In…

  23. Video: Blake Griffin hits his head on the backboard

    Feb 18, 2011, 8:15 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    It’s good to know that the superstar athletes of the NBA struggle with the same issues you and I do playing the game. Some nights the shots just don’t fall. Some nights it’s hard to stop the guy you are guarding. Some days you go up to dunk hit your head on the backboard. You…

  24. Blake Griffin becomes the NBA’s reluctant new celebrity

    Feb 17, 2011, 3:35 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    Blake Griffin wants to be just a regular guy. Not on the court — there he is fully at home on the stage. There he wants to win. He wants to destroy you. And dunk on you ferociously. But when your dunks electrify stadiums and bring life to a dormant franchise, when you have the…

    2009 NBA All-Star Game

    This is America, you can bet on anything. Well, not legally (unless you are in Vegas) but there are ways. And when you do remember that The King’s Speech is going to win the best picture Oscar. But this is a basketball blog, so we’ll talk about the All-Star Game Sunday in Los Angeles. You…
