Los Angeles Clippers superstar forward Blake Griffin is one of the most electrifying players in the NBA with his highlight-reel dunks and amazing athleticism.
Griffin has a pretty impressive skill set, but Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson doesn’t seem too impressed. Thompson added another layer to the rapidly growing Clippers-Warriors rivalry during a Wednesday radio appearance on 95.7 The Game by taking a shot at Griffin for his flopping.
Klay Thompson of @warriors on 95.7, abt Blake Griffin: "You see him flop sometimes like how can a guy that big and strong flop that much?"—

Here we go! Klay Thompson on @957thegame "[Blake] is a good guy off the cour, but he plays pretty physical and flops a little bit."—

Griffin’s flopping is well documented, and some of his flops have been hysterical, like the one that drew him a foul against the Sacramento Kings during the 2011-12 season.
This criticism from Thompson, combined with Griffin saying in January that Golden State plays “cowardly basketball,” would make a playoff series between these two California teams must-see television.

If the Leafs hire Jim Corsi, the internet will explode.—

Great display of skill by Jack Johnson and Brandon Dubinsky.
