It’s the playoffs and that means more time for Blake Griffin to be … well, Blake Griffin.
But the former Oklahoma star is pretty tame in his recent interview with SI.com’s Jimmy Traina.
The Clippers forward admitted to watching the Houston-Oklahoma City playoff games, saying “It’s one of those things that you can’t control so you just watch for tendencies and to see how the teams execute in the playoffs.”
A few questions later, the infamous incident when Serge Ibaka hit Griffin below the belt was brought up.
SI.com: You were involved an incident earlier this season in which Serge Ibaka hit you below the belt. You said after you were going to start wearing a cup. Do you wear a cup?
Griffin: No, but maybe I should now. That was all a joke, but as this series goes on, I might think about it. Maybe if we make it to Oklahoma City, I might actually have to bring it out.
The Q&A is quite long. You can find it in its entirety here, including Griffin’s least favorite song, Kobe live tweeting the Lakers game and if he’d ever do a reality show. But before you go, there was one more question brought up about another incident involving Griffin and an NBA player reaching below the belt.
SI.com: …you’re all over the blogs today thanks to an incident Monday in which it looked like Memphis’ Zach Randolph grabbed you in a sensitive area.
Griffin: [Laughing] I didn’t even realize it at the time, but I was told his hand got pretty close. I don’t remember him grabbing it. I don’t think he did it on purpose. When I was watching the film last night, I saw it, but there wasn’t grab.
