Blake Griffin "The Beast"

Finally ESPN does a Blake Griffin best 10 plays highlight reel. It is a must watch. I have no idea of the future of the Clippers but this much is in little doubt: IF Mr. Griffin remains healthy his potential ceiling is cause to watch a 3 win team even right now.

This fee will complete the recovery of all of the 750B$ of TARP funds + interest over a period of 10 years and in my opinion if clearly sensible and entirely justified.
