Blake Griffin Biography

Early years

Griffin was born on March 16, 1989, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, to Tommy, who is of Afro-Haitian descent, and Gail Griffin, who is Caucasian. His father was a basketball center and track standout at NAIA Northwestern Oklahoma State University. Blake and his older brother, Taylor Griffin, were home-schooled by their mother from first grade until Taylor was in the tenth grade and Blake was in eighth. Growing up, Blake was good friends with Sam Bradford, who currently plays for the St. Louis Rams and played on the same Athletes First AAU basketball team with Xavier Henry, now with the Los Angeles Lakers. Bradford’s father owned a gym where Blake and Taylor played basketball. Before deciding to focus on basketball, Blake also played baseball as a first baseman and football as a wide receiver, safety, and tight end.

Player profile

Standing at 6 feet 10 inches (2.08 m), Blake Griffin plays mostly as a power forward. In just his rookie year, he averaged 22.5 points, 12.1 rebounds, and 3.8 assists per game, becoming just the 20th rookie in NBA history to average at least 20 points and 10 rebounds a game in the shot clock era. He has exceptional athleticism which has resulted in countless spectacular dunks and highlights.
In addition to his athleticism, Griffin has proven himself to be a well rounded big man with above average skills in ball handling and passing. Rob Mahoney, in a January 2011 post in the New York Times basketball blog, singled out Griffin's playmaking abilities stating, "The overtly dominant aspects of Griffin’s play have made him one of the season’s greatest delights, but his game clearly stretches beyond the scoring and rebounding columns...his passing aptitude should serve as a reminder of the substance in his game. The dunks are great, but it’s his multiple-layered impact that has paved his early road to stardom."
