I don't know if you guys saw this last night but I had no idea Cousins was trying to hurt Griffin. Cousins actually throws a hard punch that misses but his other hand jabs him the eyes. I slowed it down 3 times and focused in on the punch. Crazy that he was not thrown out of the game. Hell, I'm surprised nothing happened.

^^ Did you see how he was trying to punch Blake? If not for his first hand poking him in the eye, he would have connected. That's how stupid Cousins is. He can't even do that right. lol

He gets in his own way.

Well if we were the Fakers we could go whining to the league office and probably get him a flagrant two and some points,,but since we are who we are they refs are probably watching this too and laughing all the way. YOu know now that I finally watch the video with the world's slowest DSL I realize that was right in front of us but without a TV announcer we didn't know what was happening. Cousins coud rank right up there with the most life POSs in the NBA.

I was about 6 rows back last night (excluding the courtside) and I had everyone around me roused up enough to storm the court and take ref 41 out to the hangin tree.

Ron, I didn't know about this either till about an hour ago. I was scrolling through the game to watch Bledsoe's dunk when I came across this. I played it several times till I realized Cousins was actually trying to swing at Blake.

In slow motion, you can really see his intent. I didn't catch this in real time last night.

Man, and it was so obvious. If that would have connected we would maybe have seen the biggest basketbrawl in NBA history.

There is starting to be just a bit too much thuggery in the NBA. These players are not on a playground in friggin NYC,,they don't have to show that they are real gansta men. Hard basketball,,yes. Trying to take someone down forever, no. Throwing a punch like tha should not even be close to tollerated. The SH%^ head should be sat down for a month for and amde to clane the toilets at Dodger Stadium.

VDN andOlshey should take this to the White HOuse if they have to. But I will say,,Blake sure is a classy guy the way he reacts to his nightly beatings.

wow, what a surprise (sarcasm). cousins is a punk B***h. i wish he would have connected on BG's forehead. he would have suffered one of the worst hand breaks of all time, aside from getting ktfo by someone on the clips team. if cousins had done that to me i would have judo tossed him straight into an armbar and snapped his f****n arm. straight up. used to play bball and i got into 10 brawls in my basketball playing days for s*** like this. if BG needs someone to teach him some dirty tricks involving martial arts, id be more than happy to do so.

Cousins is a making a piss pour attempt at being a thug. The guy talks so much sh!t but can't back it up. If your gonna punch a guy, do it while he is standing his ground. not when he's in the air defenseless. That's just chickensh!t. Grow some balls man and act like a man. The guy is bad for the NBA if this is his mentality. Kids don't need a role model like this.

Good find Joe- that sure looked a punch or an intentional elbow aimed at Blake's face. Not to give Cousins the benefit of the doubt or anything, but there could have been a slight chance where he was trying to go for the and-1, kind of following through after the foul. But most likely that was an frustrated intentional act aimed at Blake. Cousins probably thought he could get away with it since it was after the whistle.

You never know if you don't make the effort. The problem is too many people remain silent about things like this...you show enough gumption and drive and eventually people get the picture.

No way Cousins was trying to shoot that ball. He was clearly more concerned about hurting Blake than making a meaningless basket. That's why the dude is a loser!!!

There are some big egos in the league. It's one thing to get beaten on a play, but Blake's freakish athleticism straight up embarrasses guys.

There are guys that are confident enough in their own game that they take it like men and try to do better next time (Perkins), guys that whine that you're not playing fair (Gasol), and guys that can't stand your talent so much that they want to destroy it (Cousins).

I can't imagine this tape not getting into the league's hands and I'm interested to see what, if any, action they'll take.

Excellent find, Joe.

If we don't try we have no right to complain. What's the address? Maybe the Clippers Front Office. One of the local news channels but I have no clue how. I think maybe will love it.

It's kind of strange, but everything that has been said about Cousins has turned out to be true... Tremendous basketball talent and IQ... Incredibly immature and self-destructive. This guy is another Ron Artest. Hopefully he gets his act together at some point and realizes how gifted he's been.

If not, he is heading for a year-long suspension... I remember when Artest was with the Pacers asking Larry Bird if he could have the season off to work on his music. Morons both.

I dont know what the best course of action is. Like the say, 'no news is good news'. Poitive or negative, there has been alot of focus/attention regarding BG. Maybe the Clips take the highr road and let this be. Thoughts?

If someone has a hookup to the front office, that video link should be sent asap, just in case their people didn't catch it. Absolutely unacceptable on the court.

I'm going to go through some people I know who work in the Clippers just to make sure they're aware of this video if they're not already.

I looked at it and I don't think it was intentional. He swung him arms because he lost the ball in mid-flight and Griffin just had to be there.

It looks like he is going straight up with both hands on the ball. I've been stripped like that a lot of times. When that happens to me, I have both hands straight up in the air or spread out like wings. This idiot slaps blake with his left hand and then attempts a punch with his right. pathetic

That's not trying to slap the ball away, that's an intentional shot to try to hurt Blake. Someone tweet this to Blake or CP3 and where is EP at? He needs to make a post about this on Hoopsworld or w/e and bring some attention to this.
