Blake Griffin doesn’t love the occasional nut shot

King Ing December 5, 2008 3

For some reason Leonard Washington of USC just strolled down the court and gave future lottery pick Blake Griffin a hard nut shot. It still remains a mystery to me why he did it. Just as puzzling as the ball tap is this quote by USC head coach Tim Floyd.

“He’s a freshman. He doesn’t know that we film everything. But he’s a good guy.”

So you are justifying his actions by saying that Washington didn’t understand he was being filmed? All the freshman did was make the All-American mad as Griffin went on to score 11 of his 25 points after the elbow to lead Oklahoma to a 1 point victory.

    Total douchebag. I’m not surprised he goes to USC. Ban him for the season.

    Yeah, that was uncalled for, but c’mon, I think Griffin’s extended reaction was a little extreme.
