Blake Griffin & DeAndre Jordan Argue with Each Other, Both Tired of CP3, Jordan Sick of Coach Vinny Del Negro
reports are coming out of Los Angeles that Clippers big men Blake Griffin and Deandre Jordan have gotten into a notable argument while on the bench during games. Also, it appears that Jordan wants nothing to do with head coach Vinny Del Negro. T.J. Simmers of the LA Times elaborates below.

Jordan wants nothing to do with Coach Vinny Del Negro because he blames Del Negro for burying him on the bench.
He (Jordan) wants the ball like any great player, but when it doesn’t go to him, he pouts. He’s 24. Most of the time the ball goes to Griffin, but he’s concerned only about the times when it doesn’t.

Everyone else was left to sit there while waiting for the kids to stop bickering.”
Perhaps the most surprising? The two also seem to have grown weary of Chris Paul.
The pair have also grown tired of Chris Paul’s voice, which is understandable at times.
Paul, very much like Kobe Bryant — who has turned off Dwight Howard with his out-of-this-world standards — is relentless. He never shuts up. And Jordan and Griffin have become weary of him.
When asked about being annoying, Paul smiled and said, “I need to work on being a better leader.”
