The LA Clippers’ Blake Griffin got snarky on Twitter about Daryl Morey’s comments on Monday.
Blake Griffin apparently didn’t like the comments that Houston Rockets’ General Manager Daryl Morey made. The LA Clippers’ forward took to Twitter to respond to Morey’s idea that the NBA should do away with the NBA Awards all together, despite just having their inaugural show this summer.
Daryl Morey seems to be a little bitter about James Harden losing the Most Valuable Player award to Russell Westbrook. He shouldn’t be too bitter, however, with Eric Gordon winning Sixth Man of the Year and then Rocket, now Clipper Patrick Beverly being nominated to All-NBA First Team Defense.

Morey, however, does make a good point regarding how inconsistent MVP voting is, especially regarding whether or not a team finds success while also boasting an MVP caliber player. The league did make all votes public after the show, which should help keep voters accountable.
However, it doesn’t seem like Blake Griffin really care what Morey thinks. Blake wants the award show to stay. It seems like he feels the awards and the show are as necessary as having a championship. Blake wants to compete and with him being the main guy for the LA Clippers this season, he could possibly put up the numbers that will have him in the MVP conversation.
Regardless of what Daryl Morey thinks, it seems as though the NBA Award Show is here to stay. Hopefully this year, the team will have candidates in multiple categories and can bring home some trophies.
