Blake Griffin’s Parting Shot On Donald Sterling
I’m aware this isn’t Blake Griffin, but goddamnit I love this picture.

While Fish was away last year serving a brief stint after being found in Jon Hamm’s dresser posing as an athletic supporter, I was fortunate enough to single-handedly cover the whole Donald Sterling-is-the-core-of-Satan’s asshole-seriously-the-part-right-where-the-shit-begins-story, which I concluded by applauding his prostate for doing the Lord’s work. Well, it seems the harshest thing Blake Griffin felt the need to share in his piece in The Players’ Tribune was how creepy it was the time Sterling lead him around a party by the fingertips. No, really. Via TMZ:
You know that thing elderly women do where they grab the top of your hand with just their fingers and lead you around? That’s what he was doing. We were in Malibu for his annual White Party, and it was the first time I was meeting him since the Clippers had drafted me in the spring of 2009.
Also, there were hookers, because of course.
“Two blonde models showed up on either side of me. They had clearly been hired for the event. I knew this because they were wearing size XXXX-L Clippers T-shirts tied at the stomach. I looked at Sterling. He had a big dumb grin on his face. I looked at one of the girls, as if to say, “Uhhh, you don’t have to do this.” She looked back: “Uhhh, yes I do.”
He goes on to categorize Sterling as “a weird uncle,” instead of, oh I don’t know, maybe a racist, predatory prick who everyone hated and/or feared but would tolerate because money. I don’t know why Griffin still feels the need to parse words for a man who’s been publicly vilified to the point where even John Grisham wouldn’t stand up for him, but it probably has a lot to do with being a confident, wealthy superstar and not a guy wearing a 16 year-old t-shirt and blogging from a flyover state. *stands on roof, yells “But he’s a racist!
