PLAYA VISTA, Calif. -- Here are video interviews with Chris Paul and Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers at their last official meeting with the media of the 2011-2012 season.
Paul again took the blame for the Clippers being swept by the San Antonio Spurs in the second round of the NBA playoffs and promised to be better next year. He also reflected on what he admitted was a "tough season," playing 66 regular-season games and 11 playoff contests in a shorter span than normal.
Griffin, still wearing a bandage on his upper lip to protect the stitches he received after being hit by Tony Parker last night, said the Clippers' franchise has consistently moved in the right direction since drafting him three summers ago out of Oklahoma. He didn't specifically say he would sign the extension the team is sure to offer him this offseason, but did express confidence in where it is heading.
