  1. Power Balance owes Kobe Bryant, Kings big money

    Nov 23, 2011, 8:10 AM EST

    Italy Basketball Bryant Bologna

    Power Balance — the makers of those wrist bands that a number of NBA players wear — has settled a class action lawsuit that said they were crap. There have been a few of those lawsuits and a lot of legal fees. Andnow the company is filing bankruptcy. Which is mostly interesting to me because…

  2. President Obama to host NBA lockout charity game

    Nov 19, 2011, 10:59 AM EST

    President Barack Obama

    Sure, we’ve grown a little weary of the NBA lockout charity games. But when the president calls and says he is putting a game together guys are going to lace it up for that one. Well, it’s to help fundraise for Barack Obama’s re-election campaign, so maybe we shouldn’t expect to see Spencer Hawes. But…

  3. Jay-Z turns away NBA stars from GQ party VIP room

    Nov 18, 2011, 3:44 PM EST

    Jay-Z

    Oh, the horror. This damn NBA lockout continues to cause NBA players untold pain. Like not being able to get in to the VIP areas of swank Los Angeles parties. Like the GQ party Thursday where Jay-Z was in attendance along with Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin, Andre Iguodala, Russell Westbrook, JaVale McGee and Shannon Brown,…

  4. Video: Blake Griffin is getting better at this commercial thing

    Nov 17, 2011, 1:58 PM EST

    2011 NBA All-Star Game

    The first time Blake Griffin did a commercial — a spot for Subway is the first I remember — you could have replaced him with a Blake Griffin cardboard cutout and nobody would have noticed. Stiff as a board. Now, he’s pretty comfortable in front of the camera. He has a great sense of dry…

  5. Video: Blake Griffin vs. Kevin Love: The Jenga rematch

    Nov 15, 2011, 5:58 PM EST

    Blake Griffin Kevin Love

    Smart marketing folks over at Jenga/Hasbro (okay, whoever Jenga/Hasbro hires to do their marketing… as an aside wouldn’t you love to have Jenga business cards, just your name on those blocks of wood?). They saw ESPN’s “Jenga War” video with Blake Griffin and Kevin Love around the ESPYs and they said “we should make a…

  6. Video: Blake Griffin cannot stop using cars in dunks

    Oct 20, 2011, 9:38 AM EST

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    This latest Blake Griffin commercial for Kia is not the best video we’ve run here lately (this is) but it is pretty amusing. So here you are. Griffin came off as pretty stiff in his early commercials, but the very private person seems to be loosening up and letting his sense of humor out more…

  7. Blake Griffin cuts foot, will miss OKC charity game

    Oct 19, 2011, 4:59 PM EST

    Blake Griffin

    According to ESPN.com’s Marc Stein, Clippers forward, reigning Rookie of the Year, reigning Dunk Contest Champion, and former Oklahoma college superstar Blake Griffin will not be playing in a star-studded exhibition game this Sunday because of a cut he suffered while in the ocean: Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin has been forced to pull out of the…

  8. Younger players taking brunt of reputation hit during lockout

    Oct 13, 2011, 2:01 PM EST

    blake-griffin-gortat

    Kobe Bryant is good, don’t worry about him. Dirk Nowitzki’s reputation is at an all-time high. LeBron James’ status isn’t any worse than where it was after his self-inflicted wounds from a year ago. It’s not that the NBA lockout isn’t damaging player reputations — something that will worsen the longer it drags out —…

  9. Kevin Durant to host star-studded charity game in OKC

    Oct 12, 2011, 1:32 PM EST

    Kevin Durant, Michael Beasley

    The NBA player charity game circuit is coming to America’s heartland. Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant had talked about setting up a game in OKC and apparently he has pulled it off and it will become official on Wednesday, reports the Oklahoman. Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant is making good on his promise…

  10. Video: Amar’e Stoudemire posterizes Blake Griffin poster

    Stoudemire_dunk2

    We told you that Amar’e Stoudemire was working his way around the ESPN campus talking lockout and pimping his new shoes yesterday. But that was not the best part. This video is, when Stoudemire plays some nerf ball against a Blake Griffin poster. (Via The Point Forward at Sports Illustrated)

  11. Blake Griffin gets naked for ESPN, but in a good way

    Oct 6, 2011, 10:58 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    ESPN the Magazine is coming out soon with its annual “body issue” where artistic photographs of athletes’ bodies — barely covered — show off the human form. And likely sells some copies, because isn’t the point of art to make money off of it? Which leads us to Funny or Die intern — and someday…

  12. Who dunks the most? It’s not the Clipper you think.

    Sep 28, 2011, 6:10 PM EST

    DeAndre Jordan, Corey Maggette

    Really fascinating little bit of research over at Golden State of Mind (a fantastic Warriors blog you should be checking out anyway) — they ran the numbers to see who had the most dunks, layups, hook shots and tip in across the NBA last season. They did it by “dunks per 100 possessions,” which basically…

  13. Video: There’s this evil Blake Griffin puppet and… just watch

    Sep 26, 2011, 11:16 AM EST

    Blake Griffin

    You read that headline right. Over at Funny or Die they are having fun with the Blake Griffin internship. They got former “Sliders” star Jerry O’Connell (what, he did other stuff?) to jump in on a story where the pitch had to go something like “it’s ‘lil Penny meets Chucky.” Whatever, it works. It’s funny,…

  14. Who will be on Team USA for 2012 London Olympics?

    Sep 24, 2011, 12:30 PM EST

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    Mike Krzyzewski — head coach of Team USA — has some brutal choices ahead of him next summer. Team USA is in the 2012 London Olympics and will come in the heavy favorite, but there are some other very good teams out there that could push the USA — Spain and Argentina come to mind,…

  15. What the Clippers should do when the lockout ends

    Sep 13, 2011, 2:54 PM EST

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    This is the latest installment of our “when the lockout ends” series. To see the other teams we have done, follow this link. Don’t worry, we’ll get to your team soon enough. Last season in Los Angeles: The Clippers became what Brazil is to international soccer — everyone’s second favorite team. Blake Griffin changed the…

  16. Blake Griffin has summer internship — at Funnyordie.com

    Aug 24, 2011, 2:38 PM EST

    Blake Griffin

    If you’re not familiar with funnyordie.com, well, welcome to the Internet, rookie. There will be some hazing. Started five years back with some help from Will Ferrell, the site is a collection of comedy videos, slideshows, original skits and more featuring celebrities such as Zach Galifianakis (personal favorite on that site). Or right now you…

  17. Blake Griffin didn’t just dunk on the Knicks, he farted on them

    Aug 19, 2011, 7:32 PM EST

    Blake Griffin

    Blake Griffin did worse things to the Knicks than turn Timofey Mozgov into a poster child when he put on a thunderous display against the Knicks. He farted on them, too. Seriously. Griffin was on the Champs with Neal Brennan podcast and let the story go just like he let one go in a game…

  18. Nike sends Stoudemire, Rondo, Griffin back to school

    Aug 12, 2011, 9:14 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    Last summer, “The Educators” was a pretty cool little ad campaign for Nike. So, why not do a sequel? Nike has made “The Educators 2″ with Amar’e Stoudemire, Rajon Rondo and now Blake Griffin added to the mix. It seemed a fitting thing to watch on a Friday night during the summer… get you thinking…

  19. Video: Mozgov goes Blake Griffin on someone else

    Aug 12, 2011, 4:01 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    When you think of Timofey Mozgov and dunks, you tend to think of what Blake Griffin did to him last season. But Mozgov can dunk, too. Mozgov and Russia were playing Lithuania in a tuneup for EuroBasket when Mozgov ran the floor for the secondary break, got the pass in the paint and posterized some…

  20. Blake Griffin is a surfer, dude

    Aug 1, 2011, 2:33 PM EST

    2011 NBA All-Star Game

    Surfing is usually on the list of things players are banned from doing in the offseason, it’s part of their contract. To argue “but you just fall in the water” is to not respect the power and force of waves, or to understand how much it can hurt when a board tethered to your leg…

  21. Blake Griffin, Kevin Love are true lockout professionals

    Jul 14, 2011, 10:51 AM EST

    Blake Griffin Kevin Love

    So, you didn’t watch the ESPYs either? I love Seth Meyers, the Saturday Night Live star and host, but I just couldn’t. However, there are always a few good moments, so we went searching for them this morning and came across this, and had to share it. Because this is funny. It’s Kevin Love, Blake…

  22. Video: Blake Griffin and Kevin Love have a Jenga war

    Jul 11, 2011, 7:15 PM EST

    Blake Griffin Kevin Love

    Via The Basketball Jones, here’s an ESPN-produced video of two of the NBA’s best young power forwards having a Jenga war. In a battle of athleticism vs. skill, Love took the first game, but Griffin came right back to even the score at 1-1. When asked how playing Jenga helps them stay focused during the…

  23. Kevin Love and Blake Griffin are in jail (just kidding)

    Jul 8, 2011, 8:49 AM EST

    Blake Griffin Kevin Love

    Blake Griffin tweeted this photo (look to the right) of him and Kevin Love Thursday night saying: I guess they’re taking this lockout stuff pretty seriously No, it is not a photo of a real arrest. No, they are not hanging out with Michael Beasley. Just a couple of All-Stars pretending to be the 2002…

  24. Kyrie Irving is a deserving No. 1 pick

    Jun 22, 2011, 9:54 AM EST

    Michigan v Duke

    Kyrie Irving will be the No. 1 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. But he wouldn’t have beaten out John Wall for the top spot last draft. Or Blake Griffin for the top spot two drafts ago. Or Derrick Rose three drafts ago. Or… It has some fans wondering is Irving a deserving No. 1…

  25. Clippers give offer to Jordan, exercise options on Gordon, Griffin, Farouq-Aminu

    Jun 14, 2011, 7:29 PM EST

    blake-griffin-suns

    In a series of moves that should surprise exactly nobody, the Los Angeles Clippers extended a qualifying offer to center DeAndre Jordan, making him a restricted free agent, and exercised their team options on Blake Griffin, Eric Bledsoe, and Al-Farouq Aminu. All four players were drafted by the Clippers, and the latter three are still…
