Richard Schonfeld, the defense attorney representing Blake Griffin in the Clippers star’s battery case, said Thursday his firm was concluding an independent investigation that it would submit to the Clark County district attorney’s office. Schonfeld would not elaborate on what that investigation had uncovered. Griffin faces one count of misdemeanor battery in connection with an incident in October at a Las Vegas nightclub.

But he has been unable to sway many teammates to his side of the political aisle. "In a league where the average salary is more than $6 million, how can there not be more Republicans?," (Hawes) asks. "I've asked guys before: 'What issue matters more than when the federal income tax went up 4 percent? What issue matters more than money?' Some guys think about it and say, 'That's a good point.' Other guys say, 'I grew up on federal assistance, and this is my way of giving back.' " NBA.com

If you were watching closely during Wednesday's matchup between the Los Angeles Clippers and Detroit Pistons, you might have noticed that Clippers point guard Chris Paul had something written on his sneakers: ... but you might not have known why the All-Star had "L.E.G." on his kicks. "L.E.G." stands for Lisa Elaine Gallagher, who died in early September after fighting glioblastoma — a cancerous tumor that develops in the supportive tissue of the brain, can spread quickly and aggressively, and often leads to severe headaches, nausea, and memory and/or speech difficulties — for nearly a year. She was 49. She left behind a husband, Michael, and six children. Yahoo! Sports

Where does Griffin rank among the players you’ve gotten to coach? Capel: “He’s the best. There’s really no comparison. When you talk about talent, athleticism and skill, and when you add the work ethic that comes along, that was the thing that probably impressed me the most was just how hard he worked. I’m sure people that really understand basketball understand that.” Where has developed most? Capel: “Obviously shooting the basketball, which is something he’s really worked on. He’s been able to score, he’s always been a relentless rebounder, physically imposing, but really being able to shoot. I’ve always thought that he had a lot of things that he could do that people didn’t realize, because people were always just so wowed by his athleticism. I don’t think people really had ever really given him credit for all the things he can do. He can really pass. I think people started to see that as the Clippers became a better team and there was better talent around him. He really understands the game. He’s really smart. All of those things I think are what people are starting to see now.” NBA.com

Multiple times during his postgame meeting with reporters, Griffin had to apologize. He was paying attention to something bigger. Eventually, Griffin was asked if the team was worried about the decision not to indict, if it would affect them as they continue on a long road trip. "I wouldn’t say 'worried about it,'" Griffin said. "But, it’s sad to see. It hurts that people have to go through this and it affects them, but it hasn’t really touched us, personally, in here in a real way. We’ve definitely thought about it and feel for the people affected by it." Orange County Register
