That was weird seeing them basically d*ck ride BG for a good 7 minutes.

Honestly, Griffin should win MVP just based on the fact he almost got Skip to admit he was wrong about Blake.

Finally the world is starting to see what we see. Blake has stepped his game up big time this year. With his work ethic each year he will get better and better. Blake has the potential to be talked about with lebron and KD. He can win the mvp, probably not this year but its in his future.

Yes I Had to watch it twice, the funny thing is with all of the Media putting him 3rd in the MVP with Joakim Noah 4th (guy has been huge as well) after last nights performance by Blake I knew he'd be a topic on first take, I was sure Stephen A would show love but Skip was the surprising one. But I was saying earlier this year: If the Clippers finish 1st in the West CP3 has to get the MVP or it's not the Most Valuable Player award. But I never imagined Blake would make this Huge of a jump in his game, so I guess this now applies to him. SHT if we handle business (looking at our schedule) I don't see why we wouldn't finish 1st or 2nd.

Well I heard this different,I think Skip is still a dic*.

PARAPHRASE: "not even a close 3rd", "Blake doesn't play great defense, I don't see it" "he made 8 for 8 jump shot last night, was that really a fluke? Can he do it again like LeBron dropping 3s whenever he wants?"

I really cannot stand any talking head anyway. Everyone is an expert, but they can't play the game. Suit up, Skip, and go one on one with Blake. If he can't play defense you should be able to take him.

Saw a thing on a rockets board - would you rather take griffin or love. I was expecting all love, but most said blake. Was shocked but please that fans are done with calling him one dimensional

Guys I am one of the proudest Clippers fans ever right now. For years in school I was made fun of for liking the Clippers. I wore the shorts, hats, shirts, and all that Clipper gear. Blake Griffin is my favorite player and all my stuff are of him. People made fun of me for liking the Clippers and Blake Griffin. Teachers and Students all together. Blake can only dunk and all that talk. Let me just say I went to a school for a Skip Bayless's and I was the one Stephen A Smith. Now no one can talk bad about My Clips nor Blake anymore!!

Its A Good Time in Clipper land

I can't figure out why she is there - she knows nothing about sports.

Anyone ever wonder why BG hasn't received any "mvp mvp mvp" chants in Staples yet? Maybe I'm wrong but I haven't heard the fans chant for BG. BG had one of his best games of the season last night and the only chant I heard was for CP3 late in the game. I thought that was kind of a slight to BG than a compliment to CP3. It actually bothered me when that happened.

i hate both those dudes but I tend to agree with Skip more this time. Blake to me is still a liability on defense

Thought it was because he only got to the line once in the second half in the third. Usually MVP chants happen in the 4th and Blake scored his points so fast in the first in kind of caught people off guard as the players mentioned after the game. If Blake would of been at the line during the ending close I think he would of got the mvp chants.

Blake is a very good man to man and pick and roll defender far better than Kevin Love types but his help side D and rotating could use work. It's the case with both bigs though Jordan tends to lose his man on the man to man part pick and roll trying to cover open spaces. Blake and DJ have gotten better covering each others weaknesses and hopefully get continue to get better. If they both stay aggressive on the defensive glass and limit offensive rebounds the defense will look better as well.

I've been airing that same frustration for a year now. CP gets all the love and BG gets all the blame.

Not just this game, I'm talking about the last 2-3 weeks since BG was first mentioned as a MVP candidate.

No, a liability on defense would be Kevin Love, who doesn't even attempt to play it.

Does anyone believe for a second Chris Paul is texting stephen a smith "are you watching blake?" I believe Chris loves Blake's development but I doubt he is just rushing to gush to stephen a

Also I find it so annoying - first blake griffin was popular, then considered overrated when he wasn't, then kevin love was held up as the ideal 4, then Lamarcus got trendy, then Anthony Davis, and now back to blake. People just love bandwagons I guess

Gotta agree with Skippy... you can't be in the MVP discussion unless you play elite defense... like Kevin Durant. Never mind that their defensive numbers are virtually identical, it's all about the stats they don't keep... like how fast KD can run away from contact on the defensive end. He makes Usain Bolt look like a tortoise on downers.

Taking charges is for pussies! Learn from the master, Blake. If it doesn't show up in a boxscore... don't bother.

I think next year Blake's name will be banter around a lot more for the MVP award. He's getting there, but this year he's a distant 3rd...maybe.

Could care less what those 2 dummies say anyway.

I hear ya, our "fan base" has become almost unrecocgnizable since we've acquired CP3. We use to be the most die hard, loyal and basketball intelligent fans in the NBA.

Now if you go up to a "Clipper fan" on the street and ask them to name 4 players on the team, they'll give you 3 and 1 of them will be a fictitious alter ego of Chris Paul.

I miss the paper bag over the head Clipper fans, they'd know who the real heart of this team is.

Skip still found something to criticize in BG lol Pathetic! Is Durant good at defending?? No! Just BC you're long doesn't mean you play defense.

I agree with Skip tho. KD and Lebron are 1 and 2. Blake isn't at their level YET, but Blake is clearly #3. No question about it.

I think this can change so quickly. We play OKC later this season. If Blake were to have a 40 point game 12 rebounds 6 assists with 2 steals and a block to go with it while doing it efficiently and Durant stuttered a bit wouldn't the media monster start pushing Blake as the MVP.

Realistically unless OKC falls out to third I wouldn't really give it to anyone other than Durant. I think OKC is having the same problem we would have had if we kept Vinny (except I don't think Vinny was really good at any side of the ball, personally I think his best attribute was in talking to Sterling and we don't know how much Sacks did there). Brooks is a good defensive coach, but that is it. Brooks should be an assistant as far as I'm concerned. To much Iso and not enough ball movement in that offense. I think that is one of the reasons OKC is having so much trouble with meshing Westbrook back in. We have JC start come off the bench, then DC and it isn't perfect but the expectations and roles are much more outlined in Doc's offense. I think if OKC got someone like Brian Shaw or Hollins who can still coach defense while running a system on offense they would be much more dangerous which is really scary.

Oh and Skip won't give Clips credit unless the Spurs had to play in the East for the playoffs.
