As tough as Blake Griffin acts on the court, with all the mad dogging and intense stares, there is still a general perception that he is soft. In an interview with ESPN, Griffin addresses those allegations that he is soft.
“I’ve never really worried about being called soft or people thinking I’m soft,” the Los Angeles Clippers’ star power forward said. “If anybody wants to step and take that challenge I’m more than happy — off the court — because I don’t want to get suspended. It’s not something that I dwell on. I’ve never really had a problem with being soft.”
Last month, teammate Chauncey Billups said on ESPN’s “First Take” that Griffin might be “too nice” and NBA opponents often take advantage of that aspect of his personality.
