LOS ANGELES -- Blake Griffin is apologizing to Los Angeles Clippers fans for punching the teams assistant equipment manager last season, an incident he says was 100 percent my fault.He was suspended four games and docked nearly $860,000 in pay for the altercation in January at a Toronto restaurant. Griffin broke his right hand and Matias Testis face was severely swollen. Testi no longer works for team, having left in late July with no reason given by the Clippers, who open training camp Tuesday in Irvine.Griffin says not a day goes by that he doesnt think about the incident and says he feels like he let down longtime Clippers fans. The 27-year-old forward expressed his thoughts in a letter posted Friday on The Players Tribune website, where he is listed as a senior editor.I dont want to dwell on it, but I think I owe it to Clippers fans to say it once again before the season begins: Im sorry, he wrote.Griffin was limited to 35 games last season because of a left quadriceps injury. He averaged 21.4 points and 8.4 rebounds. The Clippers lost to Portland in six games in the first round of the playoffs.We all know the narrative going into this season, he wrote. Everyones like, `Oh, they lose in the playoffs every year. Same old Clippers. All I have to say to that is this: Were the same core group that beat the defending-champion Spurs in seven games just 17 months ago. I know 17 months seems like forever, especially in NBA time, but we know how small the margins are between winning and losing, and how quickly the narratives around teams can change.Griffin said missing most of last season was a wake-up call for me.When I was hurt and basically sitting around going stir-crazy, it made me realize that basketball was like therapy for me, he wrote. No matter what was going on in the real world, if I could just get to the gym, everything else disappeared.Griffin said a few days after the altercation he received a call from his older brother Taylor, who said, Man, what are you doing? This is not you. What are you doing this for?I was crushed, Griffin said. To hear that from him, somebody Ive looked up to my whole life, who always tells me what I need to hear, thats when I had a pretty big realization about who I am, and who I want to be. I dont want to say what that realization was. I just want to go out and show you. Nike Air Force 1 Cheap Australia . Louis Cardinals. Victorino is batting sixth and playing right field after missing two games because of back tightness.

Air Force 1 Sale Australia . Vaives lawyer Trevor Whiffen claims the former 50-goal man wasnt provided with a copy of the claim beforehand and that he would not have agreed to the allegations made against the NHL had he been asked to review its contents. Wholesale Air Force 1 . In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. Melbourne can join a small group of teams in NRL history by securing a clean sheet against battlers Newcastle on Sunday.If the Storm keep the bottom-placed Knights scoreless at Hunter Stadium, they will become just the sixth team to hold their opponents to zero on four occasions or more in a season, according to Fox Sports Stats.Of the five teams to achieve the feat, three - Sydney Roosters (2013), Parramatta Eels (1982) and Balmain Tigers (1917) - have gone on to win the premiership.Bellamy said he was pleased with his sides 5-1 record during State of Origin period this year, something they have struggled with in previous seasons.Our record was poor last year. I think we won one out of six but I think we lost one by two and another one by four, Bellamy said.So it probably wasnt quite as bad as the record looked.We make a real emphasis during Origin for the other players to stand up with our key position players gone, to stand up and take a bit of responsibility to get it done.Weve adapted to that mentality better than last year.Cameron SSmith and Cooper Cronk emerged after Origin unscathed and are set to back up on Sunday while Cameron Munster is expected to return after a three-game lay-off because of an ankle injury.ddddddddddddTohu Harris is also a likely starter despite a rib problem.The Storm must overcome a recent poor record against the Knights, having lost two of their last three meetings and being pushed all the way in their most recent clash in round five.The Knights will be bolstered by the return of playmaker Jarrod Mullen after missing most of the season with a hamstring injury.STATS THAT MATTER* It will be Newcastles 700th match in the competition. They have won 341 of their 699 matches* If the Knights concede three tries or more, they will be the fourth team in the NRL era to concede 100 tries or more in the opening 17 matches of a season* The Knights have lost 10 straight and are closing in on their club record of 13 straight.
