“Classless?” Memphis Fans Booed Blake Griffin When He Went Down With A Knee Injury

Fair or foul, America? Because, on the one hand, Blake Griffin has been flopping a bit during LA’s opening round playoff series with Memphis, so when he went down clutching his knee in Wednesday night’s Game 5, many a Grizz fan might have assumed he was overselling it.

Then again, clutching your knee after hitting the floor is a bit different than holding your face after a questionable foul, and we’ve already seen another of the game’s young superstars suffer a torn ACL under similar circumstances. Nobody wants to see an injury, heated playoff series or not.

So, did the Memphis fans go a few steps too far when they booed Blake Griffin last night? Or were they within their rights as home fans in the midst of a do-or-die elimination game? I’m going with the former.

Here’s video of the incident. The boos occur around the 1:50 mark. TNT’s Chris Webber was not amused.

    It if had been anybody else (except maybe his supporting cast of floppers), it would have been classless.  Since Blake can’t even do a good job selling his flopping (let’s not forget when he hit his own head and then demanded a foul), then it was perfectly justified.

    Until they come out and say that he atually did hurt himself, I think that it was just a more prolonged acting job.

    Even Chris Paul went over there to convince him to shoot free throws, as well as, he miraculously could run down the court (at least when he forgot that he was supposed to be hurt bad.)

    Since their dramatics has cost the Grizzlies several games in this series, then I’m fine with it.

    BTW, it’s not like the Grizzlies’ fans are the only ones who are sick of it – all NBA fans (besides Clippers) are!

    Since we know Blake can cry – and in this case he didn’t-I’m not sure that I still believe that he was hurt:)

    They were booing the technical the ref gave Gasol for slapping the floor. C. Webb is better than that.

     Hope everything will be right for him.
