The Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Clippers clearly have some bad blood between them, but that in no way excuses the actions of Zach Randolph here. What he did to Griffin was flagrant and dangerous. Randolph can’t even pretend like it was an accident or something that occurred during the play, it was just blatantly illegal.
I would expect a fine coming, especially because it was on one of the NBA’s young, marketable stars. This is a play that should never occur and can only give the NBA a bad rep.
