    Dwight knows how to punch someone. MK-style.

    Didn't Lawson's injury line up nicely with his suspension though?

    It's the Sterling Curse in action! The Clippers will NEVER be true title contenders because Evil Donald (no, not THAT one, the other one) cursed them forever.

    Bring in A-list coaches, trade for superstar PGs, draft one of the best PFs of the last 10 years, even turn JJ Reddick into a serviceable shooting guard and decent defender... none of that matters because of the curse.

    This franchise will be a loser for another decade or two. There's simply way too much bad juju there to overcome in a few years under a new owner.

    The Clippers will never win a title. They just have weird stuff happen when they are decent, and then really are bad when they are bad...

    The need to move out from LA (Seattle??) for them to end any such curse that lingers over their franchise.

    Someone is going to get PAID - that guy can sue Blake and the Clippers and possibly the NBA.

    Especially if there is a history, that clip of Griffin above pulling his head down - will only make it worse.

    Well that doesn't sound like assault at all. Griffin is 6'10 270, he should be arrested. This isn't wwe, you can't just go around beating up employees...I wonder if its the same staff member Smoove got into it with as well

    Would love someone to ask Josh Smith what he thinks.

    We don't even know what this equipment manager did or said. I think it had to be pretty bad for Blake to hit him then chase him out of the restaurant. Need more info. Income level and size have nothing to do with it. Disrespect is disrespect.

    He should be suspended the rest of the season.
