This is how hard takedown looks like:

In Griffins case foul should have been called, but in pussified NBA even regular fouls are treated as technical or flagrants.

I do not believe this is Blake Griffin responding to an isolated incident. As other posters have mentioned, he has been previously taken out likely around 6-7 different times this year in a dirty fashion. Therefore, his terror alert level is: Red. If there was not an ongoing threat against Mr. Griffin, I'm not thinking he would have responded the way he did last night. However, due to previous circumstances, I cannot particularly blame him for assuming the worst on what appeared to be an accidental play.

If I could change one thing, it'd be that he seemed to react this way to a relatively not-too-dirty call. I feel to protect himself from real injury (street cred. and keeping it real aside) Griffin does need to respond in a fashion that may give off the idea that he's really, really not okay with being taken out. From a fan's perspective, the last thing I want is to see high flyers being discouraged from flying because there's the threat of serious injury. I do not find that to be an acceptable form of basketball, coming from a Bad Boys guy. I do not wish for a return to the 1950's when players were supposedly submarined any time they tried to slam.

Howard would have to start a fight every game.

Griffin turns more and more into Lebron.

I think the Dwight Howard comparison helps illustrate the difference between a hard foul and a dangerous foul. I won't doubt Dwight Howard has been fouled dangerously as well but typically, the hard fouls committed against D12 occur as he's bruising beneath the basket. A lot of those fouls may be excessive but I wouldn't call them by and large dangerous.

Blake Griffin also absorbs hard fouls beneath the basket, though I'm not sure at the same clip as Howard. I do not have an issue with those fouls. The issue comes most often when Griffin is in the open floor and jumping off the run. It's at this point, in my humblest of opinions, when a lot of fouls stop being hard, and start being dangerous.

Whereas a lot of Howard's fouls are taken while he's relatively stationary and jumping straight up off two feet, I've already seen numerous cases this season where Griffin has been grabbed, pushed or clipped as he attempted to jump off the run. As could be seen by the Andrew Bogut/Amar'e Stoudemire incident from last season, it doesn't take a whole lot to create a catastrophe when a defender does not make a play on the ball during a high speed move to the rim.

Blake Griffin has not been seriously injured from a foul to this point and hopefully he never is. Last night's defensive play is not indicative of the fouls committed against him throughout the season. I'm speaking toward previous incidents.My feeling is, if a defensive player is not in position to make a play on the ball during a fast break, they should not resort to any slight pushing or grabbing. Even unintentionally, heavy damage can be caused to a high speed, airborne player.

Imagine if the new Golden boy had hit Battie many times and was suspend by the league. What people would think of him?

Blake Griffin leads the league in flagrant fouls received with 8. Meaning players are trying to deliver these kind of fouls pretty regularly. This one wasn't too bad... but earlier in game there were a couple non calls of Sixers players roughing him up and in the game in Philly Blake got flagrantly fouled by Elton Brand so it was built up.

I like that he went right back at Battie. I don't care if it was a light push and not completely intentional.
