“Extremely difficult. Extremely difficult to play against Dirk. One of the most gifted players to ever come into this league. He changed the game for bigs. He gave us opportunity outside of the box. His legacy speaks for itself. Not only one of the greatest overseas player, but one of the greatest players in general. Huge fan of Dirk. I love a big man skill and he is the prime definition of that. Like I said, his legacy speaks for itself.” – DeMarcus Cousins.

As expected, Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin, a five-time All-Star forward, has exercised the early termination option on his contract and will become an unrestricted free agent, league sources told The Vertical.
Griffin, 28, is a cornerstone player for the Clippers, a priority for them to re-sign this summer. Boston, Houston and Miami are among multiple possible free-agent destinations for Griffin, who’ll also consider returning to the Clippers.
