Blake Griffin Calls The Lakers Paper Champions
The list of NBA players crowning or not so fasting the Lakers as the 2103 NBA champions grows by the day.
Most are either dismissing the Lakers, fake crowning them, or focused on the Miami Heat.
Los Angeles Clippers power forward jump into the fray recently with some comments he made to Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman.
“On paper it looks great,” Griffin said during a recent visit to Norman. “People said the same thing when we got C.P., Chris Paul. But they still got to go out there and play.”
“I think there’s a lot of tough teams in the Western Conference. There’s one right here (in Oklahoma City) that the Lakers have to get over,” Griffin said. “The Spurs have been a good team for the past 500 years. And I think we’re preparing for that. So that’s kind of what you expect people to do. You expect them to hand out the trophy in the middle of the summer. So we’re not worried about that. We’re not worried about just the Lakers.”
“There’s a lot of great teams and a lot of good talent as well,” Griffin said. “It’s funny because the Heat have managed to somehow fly under the radar this summer and they added Ray Allen. So we can’t forget about all these other teams. We can’t worry about just the Lakers.”
As I said in my previous article this is shaping up to be a season for the ages.
