GIF: Blake Griffin Palms Loose Ball To Start Break, Finishes Lob Left-Handed

Blake Griffin

We’ve always maintained that more frightening than Blake Griffin’s otherworldly explosiveness is his unmatched blend of strength, coordination, and dexterity. No big man in the league has better balance than Blake, a trait that’s become more apparent as he’s expanded his offensive game to include a handle that belies his size. But the leaping ability sure is great, too – it’s certainly tough to choose one attribute over the other. Fortunately, this incredible sequence from last night’s Los Angeles Clippers-Denver Nuggets exhibition in Las Vegas ensures we don’t have to, and shows off the total package of Griffin’s surreal athleticism.

Blake Griffin

While Clippers power forward Blake Griffin worked on his stroke this offseason, and appears to have added a three-pointer into his bag of offensive tricks, he’s still the same guy who jumped over a Kia. Blake showed off his range and what that range means for him on the offensive end last night in Utah with 31 points in less than 30 minutes. Read More »

Video: Watch Out, Blake Griffin May Have Added A 3-Pointer To His Arsenal

Blake Griffin

Is it possible we might start referring to brazen dunk champion Blake Griffin as a stretch four? The Clippers power forward knocked down four straight jumpers to start last night’s preseason game against the Dubs, including a corner three right in the face of a surprised Andrew Bogut. But does this mean he’s now a three-point threat? Read More »

The Top 10 Offensive Players In The NBA Today

Chris Paul, Steph Curry, Blake Griffin

When Stephen Curry said he was a better offensive player than LeBron James, a lot of people guffawed. The fidelity of Steph’s answer can be debated — personally, we think it’s closer than most believe, and of course he’d choose himself — but the premise is an interesting way of looking at the game: Who exactly are the best offensive players in the NBA? Forgetting defense for a moment, here’s an attempt to rank, in order, the 10 best offensive players in the NBA today. Read More »

Blake Griffin Says He Knew Donald Sterling Was Racist From The Beginning

Blake Griffin

Even before audio of the reprehensible thoughts that ultimately forced Donald Sterling from the NBA surfaced, his racism was no secret. Sterling had harbored and acted on his sentiments about minorities for decades prior, a reality the league did its very best to dismiss until the proper time arose. But the internet – and even public record, in this case – makes any information difficult to conceal, leading Los Angeles Clippers superstar Blake Griffin to learn of Sterling’s abhorrent behavior and mindset years before the scandal that forced the owner of his team to sell.

Blake Griffin Says LeBron “Was Osama bin Laden” To Cavs Fans Before Return

Blake Griffin, LeBron James

LeBron James’ return to the Cleveland Cavaliers has received near-consensus support. The only group showering James with more praise than fans for his decision are his playing peers in the NBA, a trend that continued recently when Los Angeles Clippers superstar Blake Griffin offered his take on The King’s free agency choice. Explaining why he’s so impressed by James going back home, Griffin notes Clevelanders’ extremely hateful reaction to LeBron’s initial departure from the Cavs in 2010. Read More »

Here’s Blake Griffin Actually Performing Poetry Live On Stage

Blake Griffin’s comedic chops are well-known, and his reputation as basketball’s premier commercial actor was cemented earlier this week when he partnered with VIZIO for #SlamDunkPoetry. But those videos, obviously, were heavily edited and put together over shoots that were likely hours long. Standing in front of a live audience and actually reciting those poems in one take is a different animal – for most people. Unsurprisingly, though, Griffin’s delivery of “An Exploration of Self” and “Metamorphosis” at LA’s Laugh Factory last night equaled and perhaps outdid his rendition in the initial video. Read More »
