Griffin: Lakers Not Favorite to Win Title
After one year as perhaps the main basketball attraction in Los Angeles, Blake Griffin and the Clippers figure to again be forced to play in the shadows of the Lakers now that Dwight Howard has teamed up with Kobe Bryant.
But Griffin says not so fast.
“On paper it looks great,” Griffin said during a recent visit to Norman. “People said the same thing when we got C.P., Chris Paul. But they still got to go out there and play.”
Griffin said the Lakers’ additions of Howard and Nash make them just one of many talented teams, not necessarily the favorite to win it all this season.
