This isn't to bash the franchise or the fans but seriously?

A) An owner who's more concerned with income than the talent on the court?
B) Blake Griffin who's babied by the league and is always on the receiving end of generous calls?
C) An abundance of star power that is more flash than substance?

I'm not trying to get into conspiracy theories here, but there can't even be a shadow of a doubt that officials turn a blind eye to his clear off arm shoves to get to the rim and is nasty glares after he throws it down. How is it fair that he can stare you down after a monsterous offensive foul/ throw down as your sitting on the ground begging for a call, While on the other hand if you were to throw it back in his face and waive your finger you'd be called for an immediate Tech.

The team is riddled with flop artists and poor attitude. I'm sorry, but this team is exactly what's wrong with the NBA.

Was Jason Smiths foul on Griffin a individual frustration foul or a message to Griffin that he won't tolerate his show boating?
I've never seen so many officials turn a blind eye to a 2nd year player like this.

I don't know if they're exhibit A of "what's wrong with the NBA"...but damn...they are so unlikable. Blake is a problem...I "hate" him as much as pretty much any player I've ever "hated".

Thought they'd be a lot more fun than they are...but yeah...a lot of flaws.

Blake is babied immensely...oh well. Good for him. I wish Howard would embellish, flop, flail, whine, scream, cry, pout etc. as much as Blake sometimes...he'd get so many more calls, and maybe draw his first ever flagrant.

I'm sure people will write me off since I'm a Lakers fan, but IMHO the Clippers do represent a lot of what I dislike in the NBA. It's just a bunch of false bravado and immaturity, and the players do appear to care more about style points than the actual scoreboard.

Don't get me wrong--the Clippers have a boatload of talent and they can be extremely exciting to watch. It's just that they act like every flashy dunk has earned them a banner to hang in the rafters. It's a whole lotta style over substance.

As a Lakers fan I care more about my team winning playoff games, building statues of all-time greats outside the arena, and adding more banners to the rafters.

With all of that said, I guarantee you that at some point these opposing teams will start getting retribution for all of these antics. It's not something that I want to happen, mind you, but it is an eventuality.

I absolutely agree, and the officials are giving the players 3 options when Blake picks up steam,
A) Get out of the way and allow him to throw it down
B) Get posterized and pick up an unwarranted foul OR
C) Challenge the shot and watch Blake flop while you pick up a flagrant foul and a suspension.
I me seriously? I would love to hear the rational of the officials

- Its a sport to us fans its a business to the owners, profitably is what matters to them so its not a fault for the owners its a choice.

B) Blake Griffin who's babied by the league and is always on the receiving end of generous calls?

- Blake is not as good as people make him out to be, he is a solid player that is a highlight reel.

C) An abundance of star power that is more flash than substance?

- That don't have a ton of star power, see what I said in B but CP3 is a stud. The have names that people want to think are better then they are.

Ask Mark Cuban what's more important, A championship, or an extra 15 mil in income..

Half of Blake Griffins highlights are easy offensive fouls

Blake Griffin is near hitting the "Derrick Rose Clause" and is due for a contract upgrade.. how is that not defined as a star? He's a 2 time all star... They have easily the best PG and a top 5 PF. along with a solid SF who was once a 2 time All Star and a great scorer. The team is a dark horse for contention in their first year together

Did you also have a problem with Manu (who if you remember was one of the biggest offenders of flopping)? To be honest, I don't get what the big deal with flopping is. Many players do it and it makes sense from a basketball stand point. If they want to eliminate flopping, they should alter the rules on taking a charge, or eliminate the charge all together because most players are basically flopping when they take a charge. Do some players do it more then others? Of course, but in the end, they're just trying to help their team win. I think Paul flops more then others because he's tiny and he can't really play defense on players taller then him unless he flops. It's smart from a strategic stand point because most players could just shoot over him.

Blake's antics are a different story though. Staring at your opponent after you dunk doesn't really help the Clippers on the court. If anything, it hurts them because you aren't getting back on defense.

That's something KG would do, which might be a decent comparison. You love it if the guys on your team (I'm pretty sure TWolves fans defended KG when he was there and now Celts fans defend him) but if he's on the opponent, you hate it.

Anyone remember when he refused to pay for a procedure not covered by their insurance for Kim Hughes one of his assistant coaches? Several Clippers players including Magette, Brand, Jaric and Kaman paid for the surgery that saved his life. Dr. Buss would have paid for it, the team paid for Turiaf to have heart surgery without even having signed him to a contract as a 2nd round pick.

Sterling is a bad owner and a worse person.

Chris Paul is the best PG in the NBA and in my mind a top 3 player in the league when healthy. Starting a franchise I'd only take Lebron and Dwight ahead of him, but with that said his Aggressive attitude then turning around to flop is frustrating and shouldn't be tolerated by officials.

As for Blake, there are a lot of stars that get calls... i don't see him as being babied any more than James or Dwight.

More flash than substance? Yeah, they just traded all their depth to land CP3, so they are thin on the bench, and will be for another year or two. But they are headed in the right direction.

Any time a player attacks the rim the way he does, he's gonna get hit plenty of times. Just like Shaq would get hacked and most of the time they wouldnt call it. If they did, there would be fts everytime he touched the ball.

We're not saying he just opens his arm ups and mows down players like a full back lol, but he does push players down, and off of him enough that it should be an automatic offensive foul every time.. I can't imagine not one player ever telling the officials to make note of it.

You really think he doesn't get hammered every time he goes to the rim? If he was a better FT shooter I'd buy into this "flopper" rep he seems to have on here. He's got a better chance of grabbing a rebound of his own missed shot and bouncing back up to dunk it than he does of making either one of his foul shots.



Actually on the contrary, the lack of publicity on this issue is ridiculous and above that absolutely mind blowing.
Not as mindblowing as Dirks ninja leg kicks to separate himself from the defender on EVERY SHOT. Or kobe blatantly jumping forward into defenders (I know you're not a mavs/lakers fan, but just sayin').

Lakers are annoying and their fans too. Last night somebody posted 'Pau Gasol should just retire' and a Laker noob started talking about how Kobe's the best closer in the league :facepalm::facepalm::facepalm::facepalm::facepalm:

I can send you it too

That's great. But we are talking about what is going on on the court. Not dumb fans, which every fanbase has.

Can you relax with the facepalms? Facepalms and 'you mad?' are lazy, immature, and overused to say the least.

Bottom line is the Clippers rub a lot of people the wrong way. I am one of them. I don't like Griffin staring people down...on any team. I don't like the show boating every time they make a basket. Whatever. It annoys me, and others.

its just a reaction for his dunk. but i guess it is considered as cocky... but hey the JV team trying to show up the varsity team and its getting interesting imo. i think its finally time for them to play in the playoffs

So are you talking about the dunk on Gasol or are you claiming he stiff arms people every time? Just to be clear. Because if he were to literally stiff arm someone in the face and not get called...ever....that would be a travesty :rolleyes:

He uses his arm to push off of people, in which he pushed Gasol's as well as Perkins face in dunking. He also used the aforementioned move on Mosgov

And honestly, if it were just that I'd be fine with it, but it's not.. Blake Griffin goes out every game not to just win, but to utterly humiliate the opponent, by throwing it down and then staring them down.. it's almost as if he's spitting on his opponent night in and night out, and it's not just disrespectful to the other players in the league, but it's so wrong when nobody is allowed to retaliate in the same fashion.

Hate for Blake getting outrageous. He stood over him but so what. These guys were the laughingstock of the league and are now relevant. You never knoow how much trash talk is being exchanged in the game.

Also, Blake is an excellent rebounder, solid ball handler, and one of the top passing big men in the game. He is more than a dunker. The clippers are all good in my book/.

Griffin was drafted into L.A. ESPN hypes him because he's part of a large city franchise. BLake wins the dunk contest before he even wins the dunk contest. The last two years of success has gone to his head, no doubt about it. The NBA has shown you need to have a chip on your shoulder during practice to ensure success in the NBA. Right, Michael Beasley? I hope he finds that chip or he'll be a good but not great player for years to come. If he gets his head on right and takes things serious I do believe he could be a top 10 player.

Griffin isnt the only player who gets away with fouls. Everytime I watch the Heat play I watch Bosh travel 5 times a game and never gets called, I have seen Wade and James push and shove guys all over the court and it never gets called. Same goes for Melo and many more

I'm sure people will write me off since I'm a Lakers fan, but IMHO the Clippers do represent a lot of what I dislike in the NBA. It's just a bunch of false bravado and immaturity, and the players do appear to care more about style points than the actual scoreboard.

Don't get me wrong--the Clippers have a boatload of talent and they can be extremely exciting to watch. It's just that they act like every flashy dunk has earned them a banner to hang in the rafters. It's a whole lotta style over substance.

As a Lakers fan I care more about my team winning playoff games, building statues of all-time greats outside the arena, and adding more banners to the rafters.

With all of that said, I guarantee you that at some point these opposing teams will start getting retribution for all of these antics. It's not something that I want to happen, mind you, but it is an eventuality.

You know, like Oscar De La Hoya...

This is exactly why PSD is a joke and Internet fans are morons like Charles Barkley always says.

The Clippers have been a embarrassing franchise for the last 15 years. This is their best season and talented roster in 15 years. They are 4th in the West which is a franchise high in seeding.

After finally shedding the "joke" imagine, now they are hated for flopping when the "entire team" doesn't even flop? Blake Griffin can be annoying with the way he always begs for foul calls but the way his body and jumping ability is, he will always be getting excessive contact.

You laugh when they are bad, hate them and call them unlikable when they become good. Grow the **** up already, people.

Nobody here would be talking if Griffin and Paul were Kings, Warriors or on any other team.

Dirk flops, Wade flops, COUSINS FLOPS, Pierce flops, Manu flops. So, tell me how is that only Blake? There is more flopper and guys who get away with crap than Blake Griffin or Chris Paul in their entire career.

Hell, Dirk's fadeaway off one leg shot is supposed to be an offensive foul because he uses his knee to create space which is considered pushing off, yet it's acceptable.

Haters just gonna hate. The Clippers are great team now, don't be bitter over it. Instead of talking about the NBA, some fans need to look at themselves already.

Bynum is one player, and hes 24. Up until this season he has been good, hes rebelling, something he hasnt done in his 7 years in the league.

Blake, on the other hasnt done anything in his measly 2 years to merit his attitude. Sure he was a beast in College, but this is the NBA, where you cant just Dunk for 100% of your points.

I agree with the bandw-agoners, they aren't ideal to have in your fan-base. All I can say is that the Clippers seem to have made it their business to accommodate the band-wagoners. They are loud, obnoxious, and get the calls in their favor. I don't know if that is just the way the hand played out, or if the NBA is throwing all the band wagoners towards to the Clippers. Either way, thats a really ****** way to start building your fan-base, especially when you havent been relevant for years.

Yeah they're not "great" but they are much improved and are getting hated on constantly. I don't like Blake either and haven't seen much development in his game.

He single handely boosted the nba by making one move and now everyone wants to follow him and go elsewhere and everyteam has to change there business outlook..

I think whats wrong with the league is players who care about brandin themselves and guys just having big egos.. Lebron fits that bill but u know what .. He was the first to really do it his way and everyone wants to do the same..

No the clippers are whats right about the league.. They drafted griffin,gordon,jordan,kaman and had the pieces to get a chris paul and made cap space for a caron butler.. They took risk with the davis trade with their 1st knowing it was a lotto pick..

The kings should try to be like them and not just get fredette to have fans and actually make basketball decisions and not try to pamper cousins just so he wont get a attitude but help him grow as a person and not cover it up. Just my opinion

cant blame the guy for trying to hammer it down every chance he gets, in any way possible. . its pretty much all he is good at.

but the stare downs are completly uncalled for

less focus on the sportscenter top 10 plays and more focus on defnese and tea ball imo

I hate superstar calls, but the NBA and other sports leagues have realized that star players and more offense mean higher ratings and more revenues.

Sounds like Blake is making a case to join the Dwight-Lebron douche conversation.

This isn't to bash the franchise or the fans but seriously?

A) An owner who's more concerned with income than the talent on the court?
B) Blake Griffin who's babied by the league and is always on the receiving end of generous calls?
C) An abundance of star power that is more flash than substance?

I'm not trying to get into conspiracy theories here, but there can't even be a shadow of a doubt that officials turn a blind eye to his clear off arm shoves to get to the rim and is nasty glares after he throws it down. How is it fair that he can stare you down after a monsterous offensive foul/ throw down as your sitting on the ground begging for a call, While on the other hand if you were to throw it back in his face and waive your finger you'd be called for an immediate Tech.

The team is riddled with flop artists and poor attitude. I'm sorry, but this team is exactly what's wrong with the NBA.

A) in the past that was 100% true. not anymore though. He signed Kaman, Baron to a horrible contract, tried to sign brand to a huge contract, signed caron to a terrible contract, signed a center that cant make a 3ft jumper to a huge contract, just build a brand new training facility for 20 mill. He is spending money.

B) Blame whines way to much, but there are a lot of calls that go against him. im guessing you only say he is babied because you only see the highlights or something?

C) This comment again points to you not watching the clippers play. they are 4th in the west and 1 1/2 behind 3rd. plus they lost chauncey and have been playing without mo for a while now.

last but not least.

Chris Paul on DeMarcus Cousins' comments re: Blake "That’s fine. We won. He lost. We’re competing for the playoffs. He’s not."

Ask Mark Cuban what's more important, A championship, or an extra 15 mil in income..

Half of Blake Griffins highlights are easy offensive fouls

Blake Griffin is near hitting the "Derrick Rose Clause" and is due for a contract upgrade.. how is that not defined as a star? He's a 2 time all star... They have easily the best PG and a top 5 PF. along with a solid SF who was once a 2 time All Star and a great scorer. The team is a dark horse for contention in their first year together

mark cuban is a billionaire. pretty terrible comparison.

Common now.
You're so defensive its hilarious. Sure you are a good team, but you're in no shape a great team. Fans like humble winners, not teams that flop and cry, then thrash talk after every play.

Its a joke how they are hyping the Clippers. All of a sudden they have "fans". I knew some people who are Clips "fans" for years, and never once engaged in a basketball talk, all of a sudden they act started acting like they are pro nba analysts.

well as a clipper fan living in LA, its 100% useless talking basketball with most laker fans. they are so myopic that its not even worth talking to them. whenever you make a good point the go-to move for laker fans is always, well, uhhh, look at the banners.... ha

im guessing thats why no one talks to you.

The CLippers don't represent LA, the Lakers do, stop joking yourself. They are fortunate we let them share the same building with us and let them have their home games while 16 Lakers banners (and counting) are up on the rafters with all the Lakers retired jerseys.

They are better served going back to San Diego. You don't need to LA teams in the NBA. Unnecessary.

heres a good example of what im talking about :p
