Blake Griffin and the Flip

By now, you’ve already seen the footage Ameer Ali’s takedown of Oklahoma’s Blake Griffin, so that’s not what this post is for. No, this is my attempt at making a point. In case you missed it, one of the first sites to post that particular highlight was The Hoop Doctors, and for their efforts, CBS ordered YouTube to pull the clip and cancel the blog’s YouTube account. Something about copyright infringement and all that. Partner-in-crime Gunaxin addressed this situation over at his blog as well.

Griffin Got Flipped, Too

The Hoop Doctors were quick with this one. For all his first half efforts, Blake Griffin got tangled up with Morgan State’s Ameer Ali, who decided he’d do his best DeJuan Blair/Hasheem Thabeet reenactment by pulling Griffin over by the arm. For his efforts, Ali was asked to finish the game in the locker room.

The lesson being, don’t try and manhandle the Player of the Year — especially if you are in the process of getting crushed by him and his team.
