During the Golden State Warriors game against the Los Angeles Clippers, David Lee and Blake Griffin were obtaining position in the paint to get a rebound. Things got a little too physical and an argument ensued between the two players. In this YouTube video, one can obviously see Blake Griffin flopping.
Fans have shown their displeasure with Blake Griffin’s childish antics. He is a notorious flopper even though his frame and size can withstand the impact of a small sports car. The fact that other players such as Warriors forward David Lee is fed up with Blake Griffin flying all over the place after a small nudge shows something more about Blake Griffin wanting to be babied by the referees.
If you take a look at the video replay, the physicality of gaining position for the rebound is not an issue. After the shot goes in, David Lee slightly nudges Blake Griffin with his left hand so that Lee could take out the ball. Here comes Blake Griffin taking a quick flight as if he were shoved with two hands.
The two were assessed technical fouls and the game continued. The Warriors would end up beating the Clippers 114-100.
