    In case thread title is not a rhetorical question, he's mad probably because he blames Blake Griffin for ruining his consecutive games played streak.

    He got suspended earlier in the year for shoving Griffin in retaliation.

    May have something to do with his teammate LaMarcus Aldridge getting snubbed in favor of a Rookie with sick hops

    it's an interesting point he makes though that LeBron James (and Kevin Durant for that matter) didn't make All-Star yet Griffin did. Griffin going to be better than both James and Durant :confused:

    Meybe not...but the numbers don't lie. His rookie numbers are head and shoulders better then both of them as rookies and the team has been winning over thepast two monhs and he has been playing like a top 10 player. He deserved it ;) 23 and 13 is all star numbers. Throw in the fact that since December he is averaging 28 and 15 :eek: No Brainer to me!

    You also have to consider the positions they play. LBJ and Durant have tougher competition at the SF slot than Griffin has this year. Beating out Melo and Paul Pierce is much harder than beating LMA.

    If Griffin had played during the time KG, Dirk, TD and ELton Brand all played in the West there's no chance he would have made the team.

    The three positions in the ASG voting are Guard, Forward, and Center. That's why 'Melo AND Durant are both starting at the forward spots.

    Griffin is better this year than either of those players were their rookie seasons.

    So... your logic is that because coaches named him as an All-Star his rookie year, he will be better than James and Durant? That makes zero sense.

    Griffin is an All-Star this year because he deserves to be. More so than LaMarcus Aldridge, more so than Zach Randolph, more so than David West, and yes... more so than James or Durant did in their respective rookie campaigns. Besides, we all know the All-Star game has never had anything to do with accomplishments. It's about who the fans want to see the most. There's a reason Clippers road games sell out now.

    I'm guessing that he was just trying to stand up for LaMarcus Aldridge in a way. Although that doesn't explain why he hip checked Blake earlier this season.

    Sour grapes of the highest quality. No one does it better than Miller.

    Because video shows why he did it.

    As for Miller his point is lost considering they named Tim Duncan to the team this year.

    Griffin is averaging 24 ppg, 13.5 rpg, and 4.3 apg since the start of Dec, and the Clippers are 16-15 in that span.

    Aldridge is averaging 23 ppg, 10.5 rpg, and 2 apg since start of Dec, with his team going 18-15 in that span.

    I think the coaches looked at how Griffin and the Clippers have been trending this season. The Clippers are much better than their record, and Griffin should get a lot of credit for that.

    Andre is little b****. He wouldn't be complaining if he played with B. Griffin. He'd be like: "Oh Blake, what a stud." Keep your mouth shut Miller, Blake as a rookie is already better than your entire career combined.

    I don't see why Andre's getting hate just for sticking up for his teammate. I mean, he even admits he's biased, so I don't see what the big deal is. I always like it when guys have their teammate's back, and it's not like Andre's arguments are totally off base. Their numbers are similar, and team record has traditionally been the outweighing factor.
