Blake Griffin had a great show of respect for the media after the Detroit Pistons’ season ended.

The Pistons lost to the Milwaukee Bucks 127-104 in Game 4 of their first-round playoff series on Monday to end the series with a sweep. Griffin had an end-of-season press conference with the media a day later and then shook the hand of each member after he was done, wishing them all a good summer.

This may not seem like much, but it’s significant. When you contrast this with what has happened with Russell Westbrook and a local Oklahoma City media member, you see how much of a difference a small gesture makes. Just ask Peyton Manning what showing respect for reporters can do you for you. When you’re well-liked by the people who cover you, it’s naturally tougher for them to be critical of you.
