Default All things Blake Griffin thread Rookie Year edition

Some highlights of articles mentioning Blake encase anyone wishes to keep up with Blake.
(Blake Griffin updates will be posted in this thread)

Griffin in perfect health for 2nd rookie year


Quote:
"I guess I'm still considered a rookie, but last year was very valuable," Griffin said Monday before the club officially began training camp. "I don't think the guys realize I'm still a rookie. They haven't made me do any of the rookie hazing yet. If we could not tell them, that would be great."

"You don't understand what it was like for him sitting out," said Kaman, who has been working out in Playa Vista nearly nonstop since July 17. "This guy's work ethic the only other guy who works like that is Elton Brand. They had to tell (Griffin) to slow it down, or he would have run himself into the ground.

If I run across some more Blake updates I'll post them.

I read an article, (cant find now) that said the clippers wanted to get in on the Melo trade, but they refused to include Blake in any deal...

I think that says a lot about the clippers hopes for blake in the near future.

just seeing or thinking about him out there in the middle of LaLa land makes me smile. First because I can only imagine what an exciting time he must be having and second because NO ONE has ever deserved it more than Blake.

You just hope that everyone else sees what an amazing young man he is and hope that the NBA just unfolds for him (except when he's forced to play the Thunder).

Go Clips nation! Rise up!

There was a time that I wouldn't have said anything here....but I have gotten to where I really like these kids playing for the Thunder. You meet them out in the community and they're a rather humble bunch .... see them at their game and they're all about teamwork (To be such a scorer KD is not selfish).

The Thunder is the goods.

So many think the Thunder will do better next year than last. I'm not so sure.
People don't realize how fortunate they were last year with Blake being out, Yao Ming being out and many other teams in the West having missing ingredients when the Thunder played them.

Clippers exercise contract extension on Blake
Quote:
The Los Angeles Clippers today exercised the club’s fourth-year contract option on guard Eric Gordon and the third-year contract option on forward Blake Griffin.

Gordon, originally selected by the Clippers as the seventh overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft, begins his third NBA season and is now signed through the 2011-12 campaign. Under the NBA’s Collective Bargaining Agreement, the Clippers had the right to exercise these contract options.

Marcus Camby is impressed with Blake Griffin's work ethic.
Quote:
"I think he's going to be an All-Star in this league for many years to come, with just the athletic ability he showed when we got there," Camby said. "He's probably one of the hardest-working players that I've seen in my 15 years. He really gets after it, he wants to be good, he wants to be great. His attitude and work ethic are second to none."
Shocker

I cannot wait to watch Blake out on the court again this season. This NBA season is going to freaking awesome.

Griffin chomping at the Bit

Lot of really cool quotes about Blake in this one.
Quote:
"He's not the guy that I'm worried about. [Blake's] the least of my worries of our younger guys. He's ready. He's chomping at the bit. You think you do but you don't really understand what it was like this guy sitting out. This guy works out harder than anybody I know. The last person I've seen work that hard was Elton Brand."
-front court mate Chris Kaman

Quote:
"We think Blake is a star," said Olshey. "I think he's one of the great ones. He's got a chance based on his work ethic, his commitment and his God-given ability. He's going to be a great player and he's going to be a part of our organization for a long time."
- Vice President of Basketball Operations Neil Olshey

Clippers not trading Blake Griffin for anybody
Quote:
"Blake Griffin isn't going anywhere other than right back here tomorrow morning to practice," said Olshey.

Olshey is loving the man drafted first overall in the 2009 draft but who sat out last season with knee problems. "The guy's taking charges, he's diving into walls," Olshey said, according to HoopsWorld. "You're not going to be able to play at half-speed with him no matter if it's Tuesday night in the Midwest and it's the fourth game in five nights or it's Saturday night vs. the Lakers."

First Preseason Game of the year for Blake was tonight
Blake's state line
9 points, (3-5 FG, 3-6 FT), 7 rebounds (3 offensive), 2 steals, 5 turnovers, 22 minutes

They lost 115-86. Don't know much beside that, if I find Blake highlights I will post them or articles mentioning him that too.

He had to be wound up tighter than a $2 watch since he hadn't played in almost a year. He'll clean that up.

Okay, so Blake Griffin was in my dream last night...

As I recall (it's starting to fade), I was watching a Clippers preseason game, and Blake was at the foul line. He made two in a row, and they just kept throwing the ball back to him until he missed. He got up to about 14 or 15 in a row!

Got to be a good omen, right?

Actually, I just checked my copy of The Interpretation of Dreams and it means you are anxious about your own death.
