Funny thing, Don MacLean was talking on the radio the other day about an embarrassing incident he had once during his early NBA days.
More than 20 years ago, the former Simi Valley High and UCLA basketball star was in his third season with the Washington Bullets, but on the injured list with a left quad injury and had missed a couple weeks’ worth of games.
He was coming out of a restaurant one night and ended up punching someone – right in the face. He looked down and figured out his right hand was broken.
He wasn’t feeling really smart at that moment.
Any of that sound familiar, Blake Griffin?
And the moral of the story, from MacLean’s perspective: “Sometimes you get put in bad situations. I’m not going to say what a dumb thing it was and how stupid he is because I did the same kind of thing at the same age he is now.”
Leave it to the rest of us to caption this thing in its proper form, then. Is there a proper emoji that Griffin should be texting to DeAndre Jordan right about now?
