    Anyone who knows basketball knows the real MIP this season is Blake Griffin, and it's not just the numbers that prove it. It's the way he goes to work every night. Even when the lights are off. Great to see a literate, educated star like Blake who isn't a snoozefest like Dunkin.

    To be honest, it's probably more like:

    Blake is the white Christian super star the NBA needs for cross over appeal for this generation.

    Griffin is going to get dick smacked in the playoffs. Who cares. Duncan has rings and championships. Griffin will just continue to get bent over by his preacher and creationism.

    The fact that you guys can't detect deadpan & sarcasm when it's right in your face speaks a lot more to your intelligence than his.

    Or atleast, a change of pace from the wannabe's who try to live the thug life out there. The guy is one with his faith and understands his smallness in the grand scheme of things, which is why his improvement has been so astronomical this year. he will finish 3rd in MVP voting while going from flashy star to reliable super star.

    Two things that are notorious for being easy to detect in text form.

    All you need to do is read the rest of the article to see that he's being facetious.

    Ok, I'll take your word for it. I didn't read the article because it's from a publication I don't like and about a player I don't like.

    Blake might be being facetious, however, I am not. I am a rockets fan who has lived in California for the past decade.. and watch a lot of Blake Griffin. Its a trend I notice with a lot of pro athletes and artists - the god fearing really do well for themselves. If you've heard some of his other interviews you'll know what it means to him. It's a good message to send out to the youngsters on atheist cesspools of crap like the internet.
