Blake Griffin's time with the L.A. Clippers has not exactly been the success story many of us imagined it would be. Season after season the franchise has failed to deliver on expectation and their big three are still without a ring or even a finals appearance.
The big man is a free agent in the summer of 2017 but according to reports he has no interest in testing the water despite having an early termination clause in his contract.
According to Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders, sources close to the team insist he has no interest in leaving the City of Angels and Doc Rivers himself is confident he will retire with the Clippers.
Chris Paul could also be a free agent in 2017 but his future is far less clear. A good season for the organisation would sure make negotiations easier.
Despite their struggles in the playoffs last season, where Griffin and CP3 were both forced to end their seasons early through injury, they are looked upon as one of the main contenders to the Golden State Warriors in the west.
It's about time they finally made good on their evident promise. A conference finals place should be their minimum expectation next season.
