Blake Griffin: "I'm Truly, Truly Sorry for What Happened"

In a bit of an impromptu interview with the media, Blake Griffin apologized to the Clippers' organization and their fans.

It's been quite the storm here at Clippers Nation ever since the Blake Griffin incident, but hopefully, clearer skies lie ahead of us.  I don't think we need to discuss the stupidity of his actions anymore, because at this point, we can all agree upon how bad they were.  That being said, outside of one Tweet, Griffin was pretty quiet about the entire episode... until now.  On Twitter, Ben Bolch gave some great quotes from both Griffin revolving around the incident.

While it definitely doesn't excuse his actions, overall, it is still encouraging to hear that this is really affecting Blake.  We all make mistakes, and this was clearly a big one.  Hopefully he can come back soon and make a great impact for the team.  Oh, and for everyone worrying about Blake not coming back in a Clippers' uniform, Doc did address that:

Now, even if Blake was being shopped, my guess is that Doc would never actually admit that.  With that being said, it doesn't hurt that Doc is denying what we are all hoping.
