Blake Griffin, born in 1989, started playing professional basketball after high school. He is one of the best players on the Los Angeles Clippers team. He is a power forward and valued as a team member and can be relied upon to score. He unfortunately broke the kneecap of his left leg and had to sit out the 2009 – 2010 season. Due to a quad injury in December, 2014, he has missed the games since Christmas Day.
Now, another injury! According to the latest news, Blake was also injured recently due to a fight that occurred with a member of the Clippers staff at a well-known and famous restaurant in Toronto. Griffin followed the staff member outside the restaurant and hit him again in the face. This time, Griffin broke his own hand. Although both men have been very old friends and they both state the fight was due to a little misunderstanding. Although the staff member was taken to hospital for treatment, Griffin was sent home. Griffin has issued an apology for his behaviour on Twitter. The team management has issued this statement, "We are conducting a full investigation with assistance from the NBA. At the conclusion of the investigation, appropriate action will be taken."
