Blake GriffinBlake Griffin, a professional basketball player currently playing for the Detroit Pistons, was born in Oklahoma City on March 16, 1989. His parents are Gail and Tommy Griffin and his brother is Taylor Griffin, who last played for Pallacanestro Trapani in Italy. Blake began his basketball career at Oklahoma Christian School, playing under his father, who was the head coach. While there, he helped lead his team to four state championships.
Griffin’s career throughout college at the University of Oklahoma was very successful. By his true sophomore year, he had scored 1000 career points. With an illustrious college resume, he decided to enter the NBA draft. On April 7, 2009, he was selected by the Los Angeles Clippers as the number one overall draft pick.
Surgery on his broken left kneecap forced Blake to sit out the 2009-2010 season, but he returned with a vengeance for the 2010-2011 campaign, and playing as a power forward set the NBA on fire, becoming the first unanimous choice for Rookie of the Year in 21 years.¹
