Pistons’ Blake Griffin Motivated by Criticism

Published

on

Detroit Pistons superstar forward Blake Griffin isn’t letting criticism of his game impact his play on the court, in fact Griffin is using that same criticism as motivation this season as the Pistons embark on the 2018-2019 regular season.

“The past two, three years, all I hear is how bad I am,” Griffin said, according to NBA.com. “And, you know, I’ve been hurt, had bad games. I haven’t even played the way I have. But we’ve talked about it: This summer, being able to work out for the first time in three summers, is huge. Last three summers, I was fighting and working as hard as I could to get healthy to be able to play. This summer, I was able to really put time in and work on my game, on my body. I’ve always been a big believer in hard work pays off.”

Griffin made headlines already this season for his 50-point game against the Philadelphia 76ers.
