As for my tackle comment.. I'm not talking about this Battie foul. I already said this was very mild and not a flagrant. I was talking about the clotheslines and tackles he has received previously. Even this foul wasn't a basketball play though. Why couldn't Battie swat at the ball? He could of easily reached it. It's like defenders get told by coaches that when Blake goes to the rim.. don't even play defense.. just deliver a hard foul. Name another player who gets this kind of defense? Dwight he's hacked.. but he also doesn't get hit like this.

"Tony Battie was just trying to hold him up," Elton Brand said. "Blake's been getting beat up all season, and guys have been taking hard fouls, so on any type of play like that, he may think that it was something too aggressive. But I don't fault him for that because guys have been taking shots at him all season. I've seen it all season."

I just meant he got more pissed than we have seen him so far as a pro. I didn't say it was a fight or he beat anyone up!

I was going to make a post saying something similar but Elton already said it for me. People keep saying that Blake couldn't survive in the 80s if he reacted this way, but I disagree. Blake couldn't survive in the 80s unless he reacts like this every so often. This type of play has happened to him several times this year, and him just taking it has only resulted in more incidents - its time to try something different. If you let people treat you like a target you will be targeted.

If people fear that they might get swung on if they push you, a lot of guys will think twice before pushing you.

it ain't so. I guess your mad the kid doesn't play for your team? Anyway weak and damn I mean weak ass post. Defend yourself or be a punk for life. I understand some of the dripping kunts around here do not understand that because they were pwned their entire life by someone who made them his ***** but that is no reason to hate on a MAN standing up for his self.

I'd rather Griffin just show that he's frustrated the way that he did, but teams will probably still go after him just as hard. I agree he overreacted, but it was all the built up times he gets shoved with the opposition not playing a play on the ball. It's one thing if they at least are making a decent effort to challenge, but when it's with no play on the ball, that is wrong.

He probably needs to K-Mart someone. I can't find the clip I had seen before, but K-Mart just clotheslined the shit out of Malone.

Blake Griffin talking about the situation last night a little bit.

Here's something from an article that I agree with 100 percent and this is all I was trying to say in this thread. It was a reader's comment

"That was ridiculous- I'm sick of seeing crap like this in "professional" basketball... how is it fair that just because u can't guard ur opponent, that u should be allowed to intentionally foul him as hard as possible to make him miss (and in cases like this, possibly cause a serious injury), all with no retaliation or recourse?

I bet if guys like Griffin, Dwight Howard, etc. played this style and drop one of those guys on their a$$ like that, it'd be a flagrant 2, ejection, suspension, multiple fines, and w/e else the league could throw at them. But I'd also bet they wouldn't have to do it more than once or twice to make it stop happening to them. Dirty play like this is really starting to ruin the nba for me"...
