Blake Griffin -- Speaks On Alleged Pimp Slap ... 'Sorry for the Distraction'

Breaking News


Blake Griffin is finally talking about the pimp slap he allegedly delivered at a Vegas nightclub -- saying he's very confident he will be exonerated.

The L.A. Clippers star spoke with reporters before practice Thursday -- saying, "I'm really not allowed to speak on [the case] ... but I'm very confident in the situation, so once I can [speak on it], I will."

When asked if facing a misdemeanor battery charge is "scary" -- Griffin replied, "I definitely wouldn't say scary. I feel more badly just for the fact that it's a distraction. I really don't know how big of a distraction it really is, but it is. So that's what I feel mostly bad about."

Chris Paul -- who was also at the club the night of the incident -- wouldn't open up about the case, but says the team has Blake's back ... "He's a teammate, he's a brother and we're always going to be there for him."
