Oh, come on! The season hasn't even started yet!

Los Angeles Clippers' Blake Griffin has broken kneecap, out weeks


    LOS ANGELES -- Blake Griffin's NBA debut has been pushed back indefinitely after the Los Angeles Clippers revealed late Monday night that their No. 1 overall draft pick has a broken left kneecap.

    The stress fracture could sideline the Oklahoma star for six weeks, the team announced, promising further information Tuesday.

    Griffin, who averaged 13.7 points and 8.1 rebounds per game during the preseason, won't be in the Clippers' lineup when they face the Lakers in their opener Tuesday night, and he could be out much longer. The Clippers play 20 games in their first six weeks of the regular season.


I really can't read something like this without thinking of Bill Simmons' "Clipper Curse" column, but it could be worse.

At least he didn't pull a Livingston.

That really was one of Simmons best columns the last couple of years. Just when you think the Clippers are almost out of the woods, something like this happens. I've heard he might not be able to be much of an impact until after the all star break.

I've heard of stress fractures only in feet. How the hell do you get one in your kneecap?

I, like a lot of people, threw away my brackets after Duke lost. I've got to go with Maryland tonight. They just seem to be the better team to me. I don't think Bobby Knight should be getting this "backlash"..at least not yet.
