Weird: Blake Griffin signed fans’ autographs ‘CP3′ (Picture)
Clippers all-star Blake Griffin must have been in some sort of strange mood over the weekend, because he bizarrely signed autographs for some fans as “CP3.”
Our tipster in Houston says he was able to catch Griffin for a signature as the power forward was returning to his hotel from the team’s practice Sunday. Strangely, Griffin signed our tipster’s photo “CP3″ — which is the initials and number of Clippers point guard Chris Paul. He apparently signed a few autographs as CP3, drew circles for his signature on a few other items, and signed his real signature on others.
We generally avoid autograph stories because we like hearing both versions of events before making an athlete look bad, but this was just too funny and bizarre to pass on. Griffin is one of the more humorous athletes around, so it’s possible this was his version of a cruel joke.
