Blake Griffin Hits Side of Backboard on Corner 3, Warriors Bench Goes Crazy [GIF]

Even though he’s one of the NBA’s brightest and most marketable stars, Blake Griffin doesn’t get much respect around the league from his peers for a combination of reasons. First off, people are tired of getting dunked on. Plain and simple. And secondly, he has the label of being a flopper which is the ultimate kiss of death for a big man.

Because guys around the NBA don’t seem to care for him too much, the Golden State Warriors bench lost their minds when Griffin, who isn’t a consistent outside jumpshooter yet, hit the side of the backboard on a 3-point attempt. If you don’t believe my Griffin hypothesis, ask yourself if an opposing bench would have the same reaction if [insert any other NBA player here] had the same result to a 3-point shot.

Regardless, this is hilarious:

  1. Don’t count on Blake forgetting that! GS is also known as Loserville!

    • are you serious?!?!? blake is 6-22 in shooting in his last two games. my warriors play you guys again after we get 2 days of rest and your clippers are coming off another back to back night, so good luck with that. oh and that “loserville” thing doesnt mean anything because SoCal has been stealing the Bay Areas style forever! Just ask E-40. I also hope your not an LA angels fan cause my “loserville” A’s took first place savagely!!! hahahaha OAKLAND!!!! we dont care because we know everyone wants to be like us, we even have Macklemore saying “hella” from seattle. we dont have to prove anything to anyone.

    • Are you serious?!?!? Blake is 6-22 in shooting in his last two games. David Lee dominated him last night that 6 of his 10 points were from the free throw line and lets not forget how bad those are and DLee should take Blake’s place in the NBA All-Star game simply because hes playing at an All-Star level, Blake can only Dunk?! my warriors play you guys again after we get 2 days of rest and your clippers are coming off another back to back night, so good luck with that. oh and that “loserville” thing doesnt mean anything because SoCal has been stealing the Bay Areas style forever!

  2. I think your hypothesis is money. However, the other thing to consider is that the Golden State bench celebrates more than any other bench that I’ve seen in the NBA. Recently the Clippers’ bench has been celebrating a lot too, but not as much as the Warriors’.
