Power forward Blake Griffin recently spoke with some media at Los Angeles Clippers facility and it appears the organizations has its sights set on a championship. You can check out an excellent video interview with Griffin below. Also quick comment on the photo above, nice shades on Griffin right?

Griffin took a little bit of a beating this offseason from opponents as well as even some former teammates. He is stepping into next season with high expectations for himself and head coach Doc Rivers will certainly be expecting a lot from Griffin on the defensive end especially.

“I do always have high expectations for myself and I always do for our team,” Griffin said. “For that to be a kind of an across the board thing, I think it’s great. You can’t really achieve anything unless your expectations are high.”

Chris Paul and Griffin’s relationship is admittedly a work in progress, and the next season will truly reveal what is in the competitive heart of those men. The Western conference is absolutely loaded, but the Clippers know what their ultimate goal is. And Griffin? Griffin’s development is absolutely crucial to that success. We will just have to see if Paul is elated at the end of the year, or hanging his head in shame at another lost year.

Mbah a Moute Runs Into Teammate, Gets Foul Call

NBA officials take an overwhelming amount of heat every season. Much of the criticism ends up being unwarranted, but sometimes all you can do is scratch your head over some of the calls that are and aren't made in the association. Against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday, Los Angeles Clippers SF/PF Luc Richard Mbah a Moute was driving the lane and ran directly into his teammate, DeAndre Jordan, yet somehow managed to get to the free-throw line, as an official inexplicably called the foul on the Raptors. Considering the fact that NBA officiating teams are made up of three men, the call is absolutely laughable and painfully embarrassing.
