Chris Paul admitted he ‘appreciated’ former teammate Blake Griffin more after he left the Los Angeles Clippers in the summer of 2017.

Paul talked about his stint with the team and the issues he had with Griffin.

“It’s seriously one of those things you don’t realize what you have until it’s gone. I think about it at times. And me and Blake Griffin absolutely had our issues here and there, but I actually appreciated Blake probably a lot more after I left,” Paul told Stephen Jackson and Matt Barnes on the All The Smoke Podcast.
