This is a really cool example of Blake Griffin taking leadership in the post-Chris Paul era. The 2017-18 Clippers are truly his team, and they’ll go as far as he takes them. It’s a great sign that he’s recognizing a potential weakness in the squad (a lack of team chemistry because of significant roster turnover) and taking the initiative to address it. This looks like a great, fun weekend with the guys getting to know each other ahead of official practices beginning.
