The Los Angeles Clippers are getting the #1 pick in the NBA draft. No, not this year’s NBA draft, last year’s. Black Griffin, the 2009 No. 1-overall draft pick out of Oklahoma, missed all of his rookie year with a busted knee.
Now, he’s been cleared to finally resume his basketball activities.
“Right now Blake is working out with no restrictions, at full speed, 100 percent to the point where [strength coach] Rich Williams asked me to talk to Blake about dialing it back a little bit,” Clippers general manager Neil Olshey said.
“He’s working out in May like we were ready to tip off in October. The only guy I feel bad for is the first one of his teammates that shows up and wants to play one-on-one with him.”
Oh, snap! Kaboooom! No he di’int!! Olshey is either hyping up Griffin or making a general statement about the quality of the rest of his basketball team! Or both!
