Yeah, he’s worth millions. Yeah, he’s dating Kate Upton, one of the hottest women on the planet. Yeah, he does funny commercials. But still! Did you know his fellow NBA brethren think he’s “soft”? That’s, like, the worst thing you can say to a guy who’s 6-foot-10-inches tall and rocks rims for a living.
But alas, many have, including his own teammate, Chauncey Billups, who told ESPN he thinks the Los Angeles Clippers’ opponents are taking advantage of the
fact that Griffin is “too nice.”
Hey, Billups! Ask Upton if she thinks he’s soft! Er, on second thought, that might be a little personal.
When pressed on his pillowy persona by those bullies at ESPN, Griffin giggled it off by challenging his slanderers to an off-the-court throw-down.
“I’ve never really worried about being called soft or people thinking I’m soft,” Griffin said.
“If anybody wants to step and take that challenge I’m more than happy — off the court — because I don’t want to get suspended. It’s not something that I dwell on. I’ve never really had a problem with being soft.”
To help dispel such blasphemies, Griffin reportedly will star in the upcoming film Flock of Dudes, a “bromance” comedy in which, according to IMDB. com, “a 30-something year old decides to ‘break up’ with his best buds in order to finally grow up.”
No release date has been set, but when it does hit theaters, we suspect this whole “soft” issue will be resolved once and for all.
