No Blake Griffin isn't grounded. He'll still be one of the NBA's best dunkers. But "Lob City" the nickname for Griffin and his high-flying teammates with the Los Angeles Clippers might be.

"Lob City doesn't exist anymore. Lob City is done" Griffin told ESPN's Shelley Smith in an interview at the Clippers media day on Monday. "We're moving on and we're going to find our identity during training camp and that will be our new city. No more Lob City."

Griffin stressed that new coach Doc Rivers has been instilling a defensive-minded culture in Los Angeles and he said that his own offensive game will change noticeably this season. The uptempo exciting style of play the Clippers have become known for since point guard Chris Paul teamed with Griffin and fellow high-flyer DeAndre Jordan in 2011 has already been de-emphasized.

"Our offense is going to have a totally different look this year" said Griffin who added that he'd done a lot of work in the offseason on his face-up game from 10-15 feet away from the basket. "Our offense is going to have a lot of movement and floor spacing. I'm looking forward to it."
