DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin bickering, want nothing to do with Vinny Del Negro
The Los Angeles Clippers have been one of the best feel good stories in the NBA this season. They just notched their 50th win and are considered to be serious contenders coming out of the Western Conference. However, some of the members of “lob city” have had some immaturity issues that is starting to come to the forefront. DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin have been bickering at each other on the sidelines and Jordan has now said he wants nothing to do with coach, Vinny Del Negro.
The feel-good Clippers are gone, with DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin’s immaturity dragging the team down.
Jordan wants nothing to do with Coach Vinny Del Negro because he blames Del Negro for burying him on the bench.
He (Jordan) wants the ball like any great player, but when it doesn’t go to him, he pouts. He’s 24. Most of the time the ball goes to Griffin, but he’s concerned only about the times when it doesn’t.
The other night in Sacramento, Griffin and Jordan exchanged words on the bench. Griffin told Jordan he best never again stare him down as he did when Griffin failed to give Jordan a good pass for a dunk.
Everyone else was left to sit there while waiting for the kids to stop bickering.
Then surprisingly, Chris Paul’s name was brought up. Apparently Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan are tired of hearing Chris Paul’s voice as well.
The pair have also grown tired of Chris Paul’s voice, which is understandable at times.
Paul, very much like Kobe Bryant — who has turned off Dwight Howard with his out-of-this-world standards — is relentless. He never shuts up. And Jordan and Griffin have become weary of him.
When asked about being annoying, Paul smiled and said, “I need to work on being a better leader.”
Griffin and Jordan should realize what is at stake here. Chris Paul is the best point guard in the game and obviously makes both of them better players. They have a team talented enough to make some noise this season in the competitive Western Conference. Both need to grow up fast or this could spell for an early exit in the playoffs.
