Lob City – WHERE? The High Flying Griffin Grounded

Posted: May 4, 2013 by B in NBA

 

Last night the Memphis Grizzles eliminated the LA Clippers. The Grizzles came back to win four straight and bump the high-flying-highlight-reel Clippers out of the playoffs. This raises the question, how good are the LA Clippers?  CP3 is a great player! But what is Blake Griffin? Zack Randolph abused Griffin in this series and at one point last night pinned him for a three count. Griffin may jump higher, be more creative, and dominate the rim, but can you win with him?

I say no.

The traits that make Griffin part of the nightly Sports Center Top 10 don’t translate into wins in the playoffs. Griffin was marginalized averaging just 13.2 PPG and 5.5RPG,  these are pedestrian numbers.

The Clippers are a fun team to watch with thunderous dunks by Griffin et al., but this is just during the regular season. They are fun to watch, but will never win!
