Blake Griffin Have you Lost Your Mind?

forward Blake Griffin injured his right hand after hitting a member of the team’s equipment staff during an argument in Toronto

The altercation started in a restaurant. It proceeded outside where Griffin hit the equipment staffer multiple times.

This is what made news a couple of days ago …Blake Griffin punching team equipment manager Matias Testi. Testi is supposed to be good friends with Blake Griffin. With friends like Griffin, Testi doesn’t need enemies. This was teasing that got carried away and neither man backed down, here is the problem …Testi is a foot shorter than Blake Griffin.

In the picture above between Lamar Odom and Blake Griffin stands ….Matias Testi. Does he look like and imposing threat to Griffin ? He barely stands at Griffin’s shoulder. Let’s use some common sense here. It doesn’t matter what as said, it doesn’t matter where they were, no matter what Blake Griffin had no business putting his hands on Testi and punching him repeatedly, never mind the fact he damaged his own hand and hurt his team at least for now, but he damaged a friendship and showed a lack of self control. Whatever happened to sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me? Does Blake Griffin feel good pounding on someone almost a foot shorter than he is? How about doing that to someone his own height or better yet just be smart and take the teasing and let it go and move on. Life is too short for this kind of foolishness.  This is a simple rule of life, the fact that it involved a famous basketball player just makes it more embarrassing, for all their money, all their fame, all their  notoriety, they still lack self control. I can’t see cutting Blake Griffin any slack on this, there is no excuse for this. And yet you know they will spin the story so Testi will say it was his fault fall on his sword so to speak , Griffin will get a slap on the wrist from the league and everyone will put on a happy face and hope it will go away.

Isn’t Blake Griffin supposed to know better, be the bigger man, literally and shouldn’t this be beneath him?
What was he thinking?

  1. It’s inconceivable neither the league hierarchy of Clippers’ have sought to reprimand either Mathias Testa or Blake Griffin, but then again this is the same league which has used racism , misogyny, and stereotypes to purvey its brand. Not really surprised by the hypocrisy exhibited or players’ with their blatant disrespect of the law while apportioning blame by others for their behavior.
