    There's no bigger tool in the league than Griffin. It pains me that one of my favorite players, Chris Paul, has to play with him.

    I don't follow the NBA and esp. west coast teams that closely. Can you explain why Griffin is such a tool? I haven't heard this before.

    This may have been mentioned, but I sincerely wish NBA fans would quit the "refs you suck" cheer. I hear it in every game and it's just low class.

    Don't get me wrong, it's not an off the court thing as I haven't heard of legal or marital issues. I simply can't stand the way he plays and is allowed to play. Watch him post up with the ball and he charges almost every time. He bull rushes with his shoulder through defenders which should be a charge according to the rule book. Then he consistently whines about not getting calls when he's barely touched going to the basket. And the he does petty stuff like holding Ibaka's leg and constantly taunting other players. Defensively he substitutes hard fouls and flopping for defense.

    There was even another NBA player that was upset enough about his antics to say something. I think he got fined.

    He is a TOOL !

    He is equal parts bully and flopping crybaby. A modern day Eddie Haskell. I think he led the NBA in technicals and shoving matches.

    The player I most want to fail by far. But he does have game.

    My guess is that Hibbert is like that running back who, when you need two yards he gets you three and when you need seven he gets you three. The playoffs play at a tempo that isn't his forte. Is it him or his coach?

    I can't explain how a guy his size doesn't get rebounds though.

    He was great in last year's playoffs though, even dominant at times. It's really crazy how bad he has been this year.

    I like how Lebron rushed into his face, like he was going to do something, then took a step back and waited for people to get in between so it could look like they were holding him back. Teletovic ends up laughing by the end of the clip. Lebron is a such a lame.

    Go Nets.

    Beal was on fire last night. With his attitude and talent, he could end up being very special.

    YEah Griffin is a little biatch. I don't think Thunder will win more than 2 games especially with Butler pulling a -21 in 12 minutes in the first half and Perkins throwing up a -15 in limited minutes. Too many old guys getting minutes.

    I was just quoting what I read, but it appears the Magic stat is correct, although he did it over the course of the entire playoffs, while Beal has already done it in his first 6 playoff games as an NBA player. I guess when he scores 25+ again tomorrow or the next game, THEN we can say he's the first to have 4 games over 25 pts before he's 21.

    Heat again proving that the regular season is meaningless come playoff time. Beat the Brooklyn Celtics by 21 tonight.

    Looking good for a Spurs-Heat rematch. Only thing that could stop that is probably the Clips.

    Jordan would be on that list too, but he turned 22 earlier in his first season.

    I thought this stat sounded bogus and since Basketball-reference is so easy to find things like this, I just looked it up, but he only missed Magic. Tony Parker, Brandon Jennings, and Harrison Barnes all had 2 each.

    List of 25 point games in the playoffs before 21st birthday.

    Interestingly, if you bump it to 30 pts and use 22 years, Lebron dominates: 7 of them.

    Well, I guess Hibbert couldn't suck forever.

    Hah - not to go on any kind of football tangent, but that is one of my favorite quotes in sports. I think it was Ernest Byner. "If you need two yards, I'll get you four. And if you need six yards . . . I'll get you four."
