Derrick Rose came out last week and talked about being upset over hard fouls and “cheap shots”. Now reigning Rookie Of The Year, Blake Griffin, is singing a similar tune.
“I’m definitely sick of taking hard hits,” Griffin said after the Clippers’ shootaround Monday. “…There’s a point, I can’t remember what game it was, in my mind where I thought this is kind of ridiculous. I’m sick of it, but it’s going to keep on happening.”
Griffin adds that taking a pounding for the entirety of the long NBA season takes it’s toll on him physically and mentally.
Not sick of taking a pounding for the whole season? You guessed it, your mom.
