Los Angeles Clippers’ power forward Blake Griffin receives a lot of unfair criticism at times. Many pundits believe his perceived lack of offensive skill and his the constant reliance on his athleticism is a negative.
Griffin, however, is having an excellent season and has showed great improvement.
Despite being ejected from Wednesday’s 105-103 loss to the Golden State Warriors (and the league admitted they made the wrong call), Griffin is going through one of the best stretches of his young career (He was named the NBA’s Western Conference Player of the Week last week).
A tweet from Issac Lowenkron, who is the Clippers’ radio host and an anchor at FOX Sports Radio, says it best.
