It’s no secret that Blake Griffin likes to flop.
Like a lot.
So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that other NBA players have noticed Griffins penchant for overreacting.
With the regular season about to wrap up, it seems likely that Griffin’s Clippers will take on the Golden State Warriors. Warrior guard Klay Thompson was asked about the Clippers and Griffin in a radio interview and had some interesting things to say about Griffin’s flopping.
Klay Thompson of @warriors on 95.7, abt Blake Griffin: "You see him flop sometimes like how can a guy that big and strong flop that much?"

Here we go! Klay Thompson on @957thegame "[Blake] is a good guy off the cour, but he plays pretty physical and flops a little bit."

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, as these teams have history with each other. It wasn’t that long ago that David Lee was yelling at Griffin to stop flopping during a game.
Thompson is smart for bringing this up ahead of what is sure to be a physical first-round series. Placing attention on Griffin’s flopping ahead of time almost guarantees the refs will scrutinize it in-game.
Regardless, the playoffs can’t come soon enough!
