    He dunked, kept his mouth open, starred off into space and slipped on his drool...

    Players getting injured sucks, people. I don't get the lame attempts at humor. "Karma" for flopping. :rolleyes:


    Unless, of course, it's Karl Malone who actively injured other players.

    Must have been that 19 million dollar move that Melo showed him.

    As much as I despise his flopping, I hope it is not serious and that he will recover quickly. It's sad to see injuries happen (Derrick Rose, Shumpert, Blazers and Rockets in general) to players in general; none of them deserve it.

    This is why I never buy into the Clippers atm. Chris Paul and Blake are always injured.

    Hopes it's just a mild sprain or something. Dude's a phenomenal talent.

    This will give Davis Stern and Mark Cuban ammunition to prevail over USA Basketball.

    Hmm, disappointed that we won't be seeing him dunk on internationals. I was really looking forward to that, as was everyone else, I'm sure.

    This will also add to the "I don't want our superstars playing in the Olympics" argument by the team owners, i.e. Mark Cuban.

    Hope Blakes okay, wanted to see some Vince Carter type posters in the Olympics. But at the same time I'd love to see Anthony Davis playing with team USA, would be great for his development. I wish they would drop Iggy or Westbrook for both Davis and Blake could be on the team.

    If his knee is okay, i qucikly package him and DJ for Dwight Howard. Blake isn't worth the headache, i would make him the Magic's problem...

    Sam Amick: Source says Griffin woke up with swelling after suffering the injury yesterday. Team USA's problem with Bigs grows bigger. 3 minutes ago

    Karma's a dumb argument. Performance enhancement side effect is not. It's no coincidence that injuries as a whole rose during the steroid era in baseball, especially with ligamentous injuries.

    Dwyane Wade's jaw. Dwight Howard's shoulders. Blake Griffin's acne/jaw/shoulders. Some things just don't occur naturally in this world, and those are a few of them.

    Alvaro Martin: YahooSports: #BlakeGriffin twists knee, "looks bad" says a source. Today, an MRI. #AnthonyDavis summoned to replace him on TeamUSA. 1 minute ago

    Brian Mahoney: As Dr. @Adrian Wojnarowski reported, Blake Griffin's knee is hurting again and he has returned to LA for evaluation. 2 minutes ago

    I agree somewhat. there should be more sniffing around with this. but olympics does have pretty comprehensive drug testing. so you could be completely wrong on this.
