I know that there was a countdown thread a few weeks ago, but that was too long ago.

15 hours from now, at 9:01 PM pacific time, Blake Griffin can officially put pen to paper and sign a 5 year contract that, once he qualifies by starting in the All-Star game OR making an All-NBA team again, will be worth 95 million dollars.

12:01 eastern time is the official start of the Free Agency Moratorium, when the Clippers, and the other 29 teams, can begin talking to, and negotiating with, free agents. Contracts cannot be signed for another 10 days (Extensions like Griffin's being an exception, along with minimum deals and first-rouders).

So, here you go. 15 hours and counting before the face of the Los Angeles Clippers can be locked in for the next half decade.
