Blake Griffin says Marco Belinelli helped Kobe Bryant out in Italy
Griffin on Thursday before practice told an inspirational story about working hard. “I’ve heard millions of Kobe (Bryant) stories about late-night workouts,” said Griffin, whose team takes on Detroit on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at Staples Center. “One I heard, one time I guess he was in Italy and called Marco Belinelli (of the Spurs) at like 1, 2 o’clock in the morning and asked him if he had a gym for him, and so Marco found him one and he went there to shoot with him. “And he (Belinelli) was like, ‘I thought we were going to just get some shots up, but we had like a full workout.’ Things like that. That’s work ethic, real worth ethic. It’s not just coming in when you have to and going hard. It’s doing extra, going above and beyond.”

Nice article. I'm pleasantly surprised at how much Griffin has improved. I like his game, and I think he's a great building block for the Clippers. They could build a championship team with Griffin and Rivers if they got some nicer role players around him.
