Elite Marshawn Lynch Jersey Clippers owner Steve Ballmer said Blake Griffin was traded due to injury concerns and chemistry issues.
[Griffin] is obviously a superstar player, Ballmer told ESPN Saturday. But if you look at what happened injury-wise, if you look at the kind of chemistry we were getting on our team, the thing you can see at the high level with the numbers when I started ï¿½ï¿½ one guy got all the assists, one guy got all the points and one guy got all the rebounds. It’s not all quite that way, but I think in the modern NBA, we were seeing it more and more ï¿½ï¿½ there’s a greater distribution of responsibility.
Griffin was a two-year starter at Central Florida and a first-team All-American Athletic Conference selection in each of those seasons. In 2016 he was the league’s defensive player of the year with 92 tackles, 11.5 sacks, an interception and two forced fumbles.
And this past season he closed out his career as the MVP of the Peach Bowl, helping Central Florida defeat Auburn 34-27 and finish with a 13-0 record.
All five Spurs starters scored in double figures, led by Pau Gasol’s 15 points and 15 rebounds, but San Antonio didn’t have the firepower to win playing without Kawhi Leonard, Rudy gay and All-Star Lamarcus Aldridge.
Injuries have started to catch up with the Spurs (35-23), who have now lost four out of their last five games.
DeAndre Jordan is still with the Clippers despite constant rumors linking him to other teams before last week’s trade deadline, and he made his presence felt in a 114-101 win over the Nets. Jordan scored 16 points on 8-of-11 shooting and 17 rebounds.
It’s hard to pick on the Knicks right now given all their injury woes, but Tim Hardaway Jr. signed a monster contract this offseason and he was poor in Monday’s 108-92 loss to the 76ers. Hardaway scored just nine points on 4-of-16 shooting (0 for 8 from Jose Berrios Womens Jersey 3-point range) in 34 minutes.
