P.J tuckers blow to blake griffin has gotten me so mad. Even on First take they agree.

Now that Blakes mentally strong, they can't stop him.

But, am i the only one who thinks somebody is going to take it to far, and actually hurt him?

Notice how it is always the scrubs? There is no way to stop Blake so teams tend to resort to trying to take him out of the game in a very cheap manner. Flashback: Christmas day game vs. GS. Can't wait to play those suckers again tomorrow, hope Blake goes off!

The last few seasons it was flagrants on fast-breaks (See Jason Smith bodycheck) and cowardly low blows (see Ibaka), but this season has mainly become a few scuffles for Blake when he retaliates to any extent, and a lot of otherwise unnoticed cheap shots. I feel sorry for Blake, not because he can't handle it physically, but because he gets so frustrated by the fact that he's playing his game, a Faried-level intensity, high skill, high power game, and the only way to combat it is to keep cheap shotting him. There was a post a few months ago about how he gets into players heads; he does this on a night out night in basis. I think last night was a good example of him digging so deep under PJ Tuckers skin that the retailiation was a violent outburst with intent to harm. The concern I have is not the effect of one player on Blake -- he can handle the physical punishment with no injury save for a few bruises, but rather, the long term effect of so many players pulling the same **** every godamn game. You guys saw last night; Blake was absolutely furious as soon as he took the hit, and had DJ not been there, PJ Tucker wouldn't have been able to walk into the locker room. The problem I see is that too many players can pull these cheap shots and low blows and get away with a slap on the wrist -- one game suspension for punching a player? Hit Durant in the face and you'll be gone for a week. The solution should originate from the League itself. They have to draw the line and start punishing these players with more than just a 'game suspension'.

They want to do something dumb like what Tucker did, they'll have to pay. Tucker was just suspended by the NBA for one game without pay- that's gotta hurt. Glad that Blake was able to control himself and not get himself thrown out or suspended.

Suns' Tucker suspended for throwing elbow

Official release

Posted Mar 11, 2014 7:02 PM

NEW YORK -- Phoenix Suns forward P.J. Tucker has been suspended one game without pay for elbowing Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin in the chin, it was announced Tuesday by Rod Thorn, President, Basketball Operations.

The incident occurred with 5:28 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Clippers' 112-105 win over the Suns on Monday, March 10, at Staples Center.

Tucker will serve his suspension on Wednesday, March 12, when the Suns host the Cleveland Cavaliers at US Airways Center.

I don't have a source, but I think Griffin is the most fouled player. I think other players are a tad jealous

The league is coming around gradually. Blake is shooting more FT's this year and has had quite a few of his own techs rescinded after the league office realized he was being baited.

Everybody ups the intensity in the post-season and the refs usually let more go, but I have a feeling that what Blake is subjected to on a nightly basis is about the limit of what will be allowed.

He'll be more ready for hard, playoff ball than anybody else in the league.

A game suspension really isn't anything to an NBA player.

No different than anybody else calling out "Sick" for

a day. He won't even feel it.

This is why I continue to say we need enforces. This doesn't

happen to Lebron James. Why not? Everyone knows

Haslem is going to **** someone up plain and simple.

Blake gets elbowed, punches, flagrant fouled to the degree

it could cause serious injury, and no one steps up to protect him.

Blake shouldn't be reacting because he is too valuable. That's what

the role players are for.

Don't think anybody's trying to hurt him. But if you think about it, it really is the best way to stop Blake... I blame the idiotic refs who 99% of the time, will call fouls on both players for getting tangled even when only 1 player initiated it.

If I was the opponent, I won't even hesitate to let a scrub on my team get ejected and give up 1 free throw just in order to piss off Blake, or even better get him a tech.

I think teams will keep doing this to Blake (especially in playoffs) until the NBA comes up with a harsher punishment for the instigator. Maybe something like a flagrant 2.

Just happened to listen to the Timberwolves announcers and they certainly feel that Blake was to blame for the incident. They said what Tucker did was wrong, but said they saw it as some sort of tackle. haha.

Blake is my favorite current player and I am actually shocked he hasn't blown up yet,but the time will come. The punishment he gets constantly is mind boggling. When that day comes, I hope he takes it out on someone deserving as we know it will cost him a big hefty fine and days off,so make it count 32. there is no way he will go on forever without hitting his limit (Probably when his KIA commercials are done) and going nuts..

A tackle? Seriously? Tucker stepped right where Blake's foot was about to plant, Griffin lost his balance, then Tucker hit him and Blake's to blame?

Very true. Also, on this same note we had a brutal schedule for this first....

We should have Hollins instigate a fight with Curry to get him thrown out of the game.

Of course they think Blake's to blame... what was he even doing banging down low? A power-forward's job is to camp out behind the arc in Minnesota.

Hollins doesn't have the balls, he is even afraid of Doc scream, what more of making a move to send him to shower room, we need a scrub player to choke the likes of Cousins, Randolph and Tucker. The likes of World Peace.

Blake can only be his own enforcer, however that is never going to happen. On-going issue same none-physcial reaction every time, just Blake's demeanor.

He already leads the league in personal fouls and is 2nd in techs. Instigating stuff isn't very smart unless you want him suspended or ejected.

The only non scrub that has tangled with Blake is ZBo. Yet, he said he does it out of respect.

Cousins, is not a scrub but he is not all there at times.

Bogut, PJ, Damond Green, guys like that try to get in Blakes head when teams can not stop him.

The league has to look into this. It needs to happen before Blake unleashes all his frustration on a poor soul.

I understand Blakes' point of view. He does not want to leave the team shorthanded in what could be a big game.

Your best answer to this kinda bull is to answer with games like last night Vs Phoenix.

Yes retaliating would end the cheap shots, but as stated by others Blake can't afford to do it because of his sponsorships.

Dude defending yourself after getting elbowed in the throat and punched

in the face isn't "instigating". What are you talking about?

Like I said we need an Enforcer. The way it works is simple. PJ Tucker

punches blake. Dragic gets flagrant fouled next time he goes to the lane.

You attack our best player we take out yours. Psychological warfare.

After a few times it will stop happening all together.

Him retaliating would do nothing but hurt the team and it wouldn't stop the cheap shots. It would only let those players know he can be "had". Getting to the FT line more then any other player and making them at a high rate is the best retaliation for him and the team.

And use some other player(s) to do the retaliating, as some others have mentioned, is the best way to go if that kind of stuff deems necessary.

Blake should just ignore those cheap shooters, unless it's the superstar of the opposing team but if just a useless player like tucker, there's no need to fight back. these is one of there job to hit him until he fight back and get ejected. If this kind of player ejected from the game or get a suspension, it won't hurt the team.

The guys hitting BG aren't mere mortals. They are huge men well over 200 lb of pure muscle. Zbp, Bougt and Cousins are closer to 250. They are bigger that the world heavyweight champ who ever that is. When they hit you you stay hit for a long time. Big Baby needs a suspension. Maybe 10 years ago Robt Horry usually a good guy closelined Nash and almost knocked him into the stands. I'm sure a guy as small as Nash wasn't causing the problem. I'm sure someone was cheap shotting one of their players and I'm sure that Phx got the message. Clobber BG we clobber Dragic. A football player once said that there is a difference between hurting someone and injuring them. Attempts at injuring can't be tolerated.

I always love it when a has-been or a never-was talks trash. You want to talk trash, be Bird, MJ, Kobe, Gary Payton, etc. Not a guy who is lucky he has a job in the NBA.

And there should be serious fines for baiting. Otherwise you will get bench jockeys taunting BG to get him out of the game. This could really suck come playoff time.

The NBA should look into this. Griffin is a big NBA superstar and the League has to protect its assets.

Are you talking about O'neal? I would go easy there. O'neal in his prime was every bit as god as Blake Griffin, especially defensively. Griffin is not MJ, Kobe, Payton, either. And O'neal is not lucky to have a job in the NBA. He's a 17 year veteran, show some respect. I mean get real. Griffin is a very good player, but by no means a Kevin Durant type superstar.

Blake was so bad last night he only had as many OREB as the entire GS team,guess he needs to step it up. I find it incredible how anyone that doesn't have Blake on their team talks about how average he is. Jealous but won't admit it. Well guess what,we will gladly keep him, especially over 17 year "vets" who play like 17 year vets (if you can't beat 'em,cheat, send your sacrificial guys in to hurt him, and when you lose threaten him, eh O'Neal?).

O'neal in his prime as good as blake: Lie detector test determines... That's a lie

Blake is not a Kevin Durant type superstar: Lie detector test determines... That's a lie

Jermaine O'neals peak was 2 20-10 seasons. After than he couldn't even

stay healthy enough to play much more than half a season.

His first 5 years in the league were non existent. Comparing him to Blake is

Laughable. Although I really liked Oneal in his prime.

Durant really isn't much better than Blake IMO if you take into account Position.

Durant is a SF so his skillset will be different. Such as pull-up 3's. But if you take into

account position Durant and Lebron are as far ahead of Blake as people make it.

Most of all Blake is being considered the 3rd best player in the league by many

sports analysts.

Oneal in his prime was never considered top 10 if we are honest.

O'Neal as good as Blake lmfao. Blake has just joined Charles Barkley and Kareem Abdul Jabbar as the only players to reach 6,000 points, 3,000 rebounds, and 1,000 assists at this early in their career, so no O'Neal is not as good as Blake. Check your facts, and BTW I'm glad many GSW fans were there to witness him achieve that goal

Don't forget shooting at least 50% on top of that.

I'm actually shocked Tim Duncan isn't on that list, he had all the skills to reach that mark immediately when he came into the league.

Getting back to my favorite player Guess Who? He was beaten up so bad in his first year that he almost quit, He had his nose broken several times. He was a gentle man who knew his own strength and was actually afraid of hurting players. He finally won respect with his playing .He never hit back. There were times when all five players were guarding him. I have a feeling that BG instigates a bit. Lawler said something like "Blake is nicer to the refs this year and he's even nice to us" It was not tongue in cheek
