Once Blake got here with CP3 [Chris Paul] and DeAndre [Jordan] we became a franchise that was talked about, Rivers said. Blake is responsible for all of that.
Griffin’s time in a Clippers uniform will be seen as the most successful and exciting era in the history of the Clippers organization, but it will also be looked at as a major disappointment. The failure to reach a Western Conference finals series and fulfill the potential of a star-laden team will leave a bitter taste behind.
With his ball-handling skills and his passing ability. He plays above the rim; I never could do that, Johnson said. But in his understanding of the game, his basketball IQ, his creativity of shots for his teammates. That’s where we [have the] same thing. Can bring it down, make a pass, make a play. I’m just happy he’s starting in the All-Star game because he deserves that.
And he’s going to be like an MVP, a champion, this dude he’s going to put Milwaukee on the map. And I think he’s going to bring them a championship one day.
At this point, you might be asking yourself, wait, how is that worth $50,000? But this fine might not be the most ridiculous of its kind.
The Eagles need to start looking at moving on from Jason Peters. Kicking Lane Johnson to the left side and/or looking for a plug-and-play left tackle to keep Carson Wentz upright is a must. Jones is underrated and can do that for the Eagles.
Miami Heat: The minutes reduction for Hassan Whiteside lowers his fantasy ceiling and prevents him from going off for monster games like he once put up regularly, but he is still finding a way to be productive when on the court. In his past five games, the big man has played only 26.8 MPG, yet he has still managed double-doubles in each of those contests while averaging 14.6 PPG and 13.4 RPG.
Milwaukee Bucks: Not only does Giannis Antetokounmpo do it all on the court — except shoot the 3-ball, that is — but his fantasy value is also boosted even more due to the amount of time he’s out there. The Greek Freak’s 37.0 MPG this season is tied with LeBron James for second in the league behind only Minnesota’s Jimmy Butler (37.3), and the addition of Jabari Parker to the lineup hasn’t reduced the work load at all for Antetokounmpo.
