Our healthy curiosity makes us wonder: A Men’s Health cover jinx? Maybe Blake Griffin doesn’t know about it

Neither do we, for that matter. But it could exist.

Wouldn’t that be so Clipper-like. Their prized possession shows off his washboard abs on the cover, explains his exercise routine, and then goes and blows out a (fill-in-the-joint) on a dunk coming off a Chris Paul lob.

Griffin, on the cover of the Jan/Feb issue, says: “Energy is something you can control… In everything you do, you’re going to face people more talented than you. I set myself apart by bringing more energy than they do.”

Other words of wisdom from Griffin in the cover story:

== “I constantly heard that all I do is dunk…And I can understand it. There aren’t SportsCenter clips of me shooting 15-footers.”

== “There were days when I didn’t feel like going through the same routine…But I learned that if you’re positive, any situation can be a chance to improve yourself.”

== “I recently got to talk to Magic Johnson…He said he used to tell individual teammates, ‘Come in before practice and work with me.’ He emphasized that being a leader isn’t about just pushing yourself. It’s also about motivating teammates.”
