You pointed out Shaq for clearouts, can we assume you hate Shaq and he's getting unfairly treated?

its only blatantly obvious because hes embarrassing people while doing it, that's why its so highlighted....I fail to accept that its only blake griffin who "Blatantly obviously" fouls someone on a highlight dunk....its just the fact that people are salty about him for some reason...that its dissected like a science.

And then what is the point of bringing it up then? if you don't hate the player? why does it matter? if everyone does it? Its just baiting the people with agendas to continue the bias against griffins dunks. When it happens in every other highlight with different players. Just appreciate a great athletic play and move on. No need for threads about it.

Im not really even talking about OP, im talking about the media and other message boards bringing up this new phenom of the "offensive foul on posters"

But he's not saying Blake is the only one, he's using blake as the prime example of that he doesn't like how the NBA protects their cash cows. Again, you're drawing conclusoins

I don't find OP baiting or having an agenda at all. No offense but it's guys like you who create the agenda by being over irrational in your asesment. He clearly said he has nothing against the guy, You've just selected not to acknowledge that. Not trying to pick on you though by any means though, but you're just defending Blake and not seeing his point.

Blake has golden boy status. He can do whatever he wants. LeBron approves.

Blake Griffin murders his defenders and the refs allow it, and starts crying for all the "HE BREATHED ON ME!" fouls and the refs allow it.

Most pampered golden boy in NBA history

most players stick out their off-hand when they go up for a dunk, its a natural motion when you're dunking... and when there's a little contact on the off-hand it doesn't automatically mean it's a foul... has to actually be a clear-out where the dunker pushes

Look at that image, Kobe isnt trying to hold Emeka's blocking hand back like Griffin does so often.

And none of those pics shows the attacking player pushing off the blocking hand of the defender.

yeah there's some noticeable differences than the above pics and Griffins. look at that Pippen-Ewing dunk, it's almost body to body and his arm isn't impeding the defender. On some of Griffin's dunks, his off arm is like the definition of breaking the rule IMO. he should be called for it

Thanks for pointing out how blatant Griffin's offensive fouls are.

No butthurtness from me, in response those who say this are obviously an over-defensive homer for responding as such.

And Griffin is far and away the best example of constantly clearing out on dunks.

And my point is that the NBA reffing system purposely doesn't call any of these on Blake because he is one of their top 3 posterboys right now. So thus he deserves extra focus and scrutiny because he is purposely being overlooked for these blatant fouls. And blatant fouls aren't petty, they are blatant fouls.

Yeah but he's only acheiving those embarassing plays by using the massive clear out arm to clear his space. If he's called for offensive fouls for all those like he should be there are no embarrassments, just an extremely athletic forward with major offensive fouling problem.

Blake do tend to use his other arm to push his defender away instead of protect himself, intentionally or not. Still, Blake is still Stern's dear boy so unless it is too obvious he will never be called for any offensive fouls.
