Blake Griffin staying with Clippers

Sources: Blake Griffin agrees to max deal with Clippers

Los Angeles Clippers All-Star Blake Griffin has reached agreement on a five-year, $173 million maximum contract to remain with the Clippers, league sources told The Vertical.

Griffin met with the Clippers’ front office and ownership on Friday night and the sides finalized the deal, league sources said.


For that kind of money, I'd probably stick around, too. CP3 is gone, but the Clippers did get a couple of pretty good players in return, so they should remain competitive as long as everyone stays healthy.

Here's hoping that he can stay healthy. He'll always seem to have a month or so of being MVP level dominant but then gets hurt.

That's it for the Clippers. Athletically declining Blake will become a burden real fast.

Clippers probably added a clause in his contract that he can punch as many team trainers as he wants.
HE'S USING HYPNOSIS!

Plus, they'll probably run iso ball with him pulling up for 20 footers and driving in and taking low percentage shots. I can't see them being better than the 6 or 7 seed this year. DJ also becomes less valuable with the loss of CP3. Doc will start his son all 82 games :lol:

To Blake's credit, he's expanded his game a little bit, so he's a fine player when he's healthy. Without CP3's leadership and talent running the show, however, the Clippers seemingly will take a step backward.
