It was only a matter of time. With the perfect rhyme nickname for Blake, QuakeGriffin.com has launched with all your Blake Griffin glory dunk needs. Yes, yes, it even has news that Blake has announced to join in the (formerly) culturally significant basketball spectacle that is the dunk contest. Reg[...]
Happy New Year, Clipper Fans! Hope everyone has recovered from the Jazz game. Just when it looked like the Clippers had found there stride, they ran into the annoyingly well-run Utah Jazz. The Clippers were playing so well that they had some pundits asking if a .500 season was in the cards. Although[...]
While I’m delighted to see the Clippers newfound brinksmanship in the last two games, neither of those games should have reached that point. In both situations, the Clippers got up to double digit leads over sub-.500 teams, only to give those leads away and win by a defensive play. The Kings g[...]
Before the season started, there was an unheralded optimism in Clipper Nation. Dunleavy gone, Blake in, a great draft class, Kaman coming off an All Star year, and Eric Gordon the Clippers’ gold medalist all compiled to form the giddiest fan base the Clippers have ever had. This was more than [...]

Three days after Turkey Day, the Clippers better be ready now. Watching that first quarter on Friday against the Suns, it was clear that the Clippers players weren’t ready to play. How else can you explain 42 points in the first quarter? The defense should have the goal of holding teams to 42 [...]
This video encapsulates my feelings about this night. The play is just magnetic, look at how easily Blake makes that reverse slam look. It’s efficient strength, coordination and focus. But when you watch it the second and third time you start to pick up on things. Just how bad was that pass in[...]
