Clippers coach Doc Rivers, saying Friday that the Blake Griffin investigation was nearing an end, offered assurance that the forward was sincerely regretful over an incident that left him with a broken hand and an equipment manager with a swollen face.
“He feels awful about it, and he’s let everyone know that,” Rivers said. “That’s all you can do. You have to forgive people at some point. I believe that. We built Richard Nixon a library. I mean, my goodness. You forgive people. You really do. You kind of move on, and you build it back.”
Rivers said the Clippers will defer to the league on any punishment meted out to Griffin.
