Found May 03, 2013 on RealGM:
Blake Griffin, who drew top billing during his rookie year with the Los Angeles Clippers -- and later increased his popularity by winning the Slam Dunk contest -- doesn’t mind taking a backseat to Chris Paul. "Somebody tried to say last year, 'Man, you went from Batman to Robin real quick,'" Griffin said. "But honestly, to me, it was like, 'Batman and Robin always saved the day.' "It's not about being the man. I just want to be a winner, and CP is going to help me be a winner.” Griffin has had to adjust to fewer touches, different spots on the floor, and everything else that comes with trying to fit in as a second option. "Playing with CP has changed the way I play, but for the better,” Griffin said. “It's still a work in progress, but I think it's making me a better player. "I want to play with great players. I want to play with guys who want to win like he does."
