I have a question. Does the Clippers organization like Blake Griffin? Do Clippers fans like Blake Griffin? Do they want him to stay in Los Angeles past this year? Sorry, that was more than one question. Kind of went on a little tangent there. A tangent is actually exactly what this team and it's fanbase could use right now, because they're incessant need to remind everyone that Blake Griffin broke his hand on another employee's face isn't exactly giving people the opportunity to forget that it happened. The best way for an awkward, contentious situation to resolve itself is to stop bringing attention to it. That means no more calculated, tone deaf Twitter posts of them shaking hands. No more Instagram videos of them slowly walking down the hall together.
Will the differences of two men that engaged in drunken fisticuffs ever be fully reconcilable? I don't know. I do know that we will never find out if the people that should want this story to die the most don't stop resuscitating it. This is like having a friend that constantly brings up the bad breakup after you get back with chick. I am sure there is still a ton of animosity between Blake Griffin and Matias Testi, but that animosity can only subside if people stop shining a spotlight on it every chance they get. I know that even if they forgive each other this incident will never un-happen. However, time should be able to heal all between two men that were supposed pretty close friends. Maybe, just maybe, we could stop ripping the bandaid off, exposing the wound, and making the process take longer than it has to, because the core of this Clippers team may not have too much more time together if things don't go well when Blake Griffin finally walks through that tunnel in game attire.
