Blake Griffin: Give Me Time to Develop
Is there no patience when it comes to a young guy playing in only his 156th game?
“Nobody is giving me time to develop,” (Blake) Griffin said without complaint while both knees were wrapped in ice after the Clippers’ 108-92 Game 1 loss to the Spurs. “I have years to improve, but for some reason everyone talks now about what I can’t do.”
“It’s not fair,” said Coach Vinny Del Negro. “He’s not 100%, it is his first playoffs, he just came through a rugged series and there’s a learning curve. It doesn’t happen overnight.”
