The "Clippers are whiners" narrative was never really fair. Yes, they definitely complained, but just watch any other team. Everyone complains after every call. Durant and Westbrook whined together all the time in OKC, but they remained liked. Curry throws his mouthpiece at refs. The whole league is full of whiners (which I'm sure is because they're all damned ENTITLED MILLENIALS), but only the Clips were characterized by it by fans and the media.
For some reason people thought Griffin would be out until December, but here is he is playing healthy. He should be in his prime right now, so injuries are the only thing that could hold him back.
