If you watch even a little bit of NBA basketball, there’s no way you haven’t seen one of the Kia ads featuring Blake Griffin going back in time to give his younger self various tidbits of helpful information that will prepare him for the future that Griffin is dealing with now.

Griffin has always been among the players in the league with a legitimately strong sense of humor, so it’s not a surprise that he took that route in responding publicly to the hit he received in the groin from the Thunder’s Serge Ibaka on Sunday.

Griffin wins. There’s no better way to deal with the aftermath of something like this than to take the high road with the joke, and make one of his sponsors happy by referencing one of his ad campaigns in the process.

    Not a huge fan of some of the stuff BG does. But this is actually awesome, I’ve been impressed more this year with his play than last year and this is just hilarious.

    His humor shows a level of maturity that some people never reach in their lifetime. Way to go, Blake!!!

    Kid Blake: Who’re you?
    Future Blake: You from the future. Forget all that crap I told you about holding someone’s jersey. You’ll thank me later….
