Back in early February, someone started a silly rumor about how Blake Griffin had slapped Justin Bieber after Biebs threatened a Starbucks barista in his presence. It obviously wasn't a true story. But Twitter had a field day with it and even just the thought of BG laying the smack down on the pop star was enough to bring a smile to thousands of peoples' faces.

So when Rolling Stone sat down with the Clippers forward recently for a Q&A, they asked him what he would do if he actually saw Bieber being disrespectful to a barista. And you'll be happy to know that Griffin would slap him if the situation ever came up.

"If he was tormenting a Starbucks barista, yeah, I'd have to," he said. "As a citizen, you do your part. Also, it's a way of giving back to the baristas for never really leaving a tip."

Ha! The rest of the Griffin's Rolling Stone Q&A was great as well. In it, he also discussed his role in The Dictator, his pubic hair (no, really), and the fart that he let loose shortly before dunking all over Timofey Mozgov a few years ago. You can read the entire Q&A over here.
