As a mouthguard expert, why do you think Steph Curry chews his mouthguard so much? Bad fit? Not a good mouth guard. What’s the deal? People need to know. Kevin Love: [Laughs] No, I don’t know if it’s a bad fit. Guys just have their nervous tics. Blake Griffin does the same thing. You’ll see me do it every once in a while. I’m always more curious about where guys will stuff their mouth guard when they come off to the bench. Will they put it back in the case? Will they put it in their socks? Will they put it in their spandex? What will they do?

Boston also expressed interest in Blake Griffin this summer, so it’s conceivable they’d have interest when he hits free agency. To be clear, those conversations were merely exploratory since the Clippers had no interest in retooling, per a league source. Gordon Hayward received interest from Boston in 2014 when he was a restricted free agent; Hayward and Brad Stevens also have unfinished business after experiencing a heartbreaking national championship loss at Butler. Beyond that, there is no star, max-level, unrestricted free agent available in 2017 that is both reasonably acquirable and enticing to the Celtics.
Storyline: Blake Griffin Free Agency
Blake Griffin tells SiriusXM NBA Radio free agency is not something he’s thinking about right now: “Honestly, nothing I even really think about. Haven’t had a conversation with anybody. That includes friends, family, agents, coaches, teammates… It’s not a conversation I have. I got a lot of basketball left to play this year. I got a full season, postseason… So that’s on the back on my mind. I’ll deal with that one when the appropriate time comes, but right now isn’t the time.”
As people around the Clippers have hoped over the past three seasons, Griffin seems ready to take his game beyond the 3-point line. Now, it’s on him to take the shots when they present themselves. “I want to be someone who shoots from there confidently, for sure,” Griffin said after Thursday’s practice at UC Irvine’s Bren Events Center. “A lot of us power forwards, our strength is inside or our versatility. You look at the best power forwards, Anthony Davis, LaMarcus (Aldridge), Draymond (Green) … they can all shoot but they can all put the ball on the floor and they can all score inside. I don’t necessarily think falling in love with the 3-point shot is a good idea, but shooting it confidently from there is great.”
