07:19 AM ET 09.13 | Back in Boston for a community event, Doc Rivers looked both back at his Celtics career and ahead to Los Angeles -- and, of course, there was talk about point guards. Turning his attention to his new team, Rivers touched on his new point guard, Chris Paul. "I see a lot similarities between he and Isiah Thomas," Rivers said. "I've already reached out to Isiah. With his ball-handling skills, he's as close to Isiah as we've had in the game." With training camp right around the corner, Rivers already has set his goal for the upcoming season. "Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, the first thing I asked them, I said, you know what bugged me? I watched the Finals, and you guys were on more than the game. You're on every commercial. We need to get off the commercials and onto the floor."

Rivers on CP3, Griffin: 'Get off the commercials'.






For years Peyton Manning has been on more commercials than almost the entire NFL....He has still played and produced like a first ballot HOFer..........



My point...........Blake is over hyped.......He is a one dimensional player on offense.....He has not and IMO can not up his offensive game......



Chris Paul can and will continue to improve.........




I love Doc Rivers but this is one time I think he is just blowing smoke up someone's butt.........













If Bird, Magic, and Jordan had done fewer commercials, They might have made the HOF and been in the mix for the GOAT...........

Blake is not a back-to-the-basket player. VDN tried to post him up and he doesn't have the skill set to do so. I like it best when he faces his defender up from about 10-15, then he can shoot the jumper (which he makes more often than people give him credit for) OR drive at the player and go to the rim strong.
If the commercials he was in were horrible, I would have to agree with Doc. But, they are very good and funny and help promote the NBA in whole, so keep making them BG32.

Blake Griffin is Shaq light. He can dunk and not much else. A little better shooter outside the paint than Shaq but he doesn't strike fear into defenses with his perimeter game.

BURN THE JERSEY!
