blake griffinBlake Austin Griffin (born March 16, 1989) is an American pro basketball player for the Los Angeles Clippers and a total hottie.  He also has a sense of humor and can clown for the camera.  Plus he loves to go to the beach!  What a convenient excuse for shirtless photos.  That plus he posed in the buff for the cover of ESPN magazine.

Griffin had a renowned high school career at Oklahoma Christian School, winning state titles each of his four years under his father who was the head coach. He played college basketball for the University of Oklahoma Sooners and was awarded numerous accolades in his second year including the Naismith College Player of the Year, Oscar Robertson Trophy and the John Wooden Award. Griffin left college after two seasons to enter the 2009 NBA Draft where he was selected first overall by the Clippers. In his first season, he broke his left kneecap, which he injured during the final pre-season game, and underwent surgery missing the entire 2009-10 season. He made his NBA debut as a rookie the following season and was selected as an All-Star, won the 2011 NBA Slam Dunk Contest and was named the NBA Rookie of the Year. In 2011, Sports Illustrated ranked him as one of the NBA's 15 Greatest Rookies of All Time.

Standing at 6 feet 10 inches (2.08 m), Griffin is a power forward who is renowned for his combination of strength, athleticism, and leaping ability. In 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 established himself as a difficult player to guard, especially when coming off the pick and roll and attacking the basket off the dribble or in the post.  Furthermore, Griffin's exceptional leaping and ability to establish position down low allowed him to finish in the top 5 in rebounding during his rookie season and in the top 10 for offensive rebounds.

Rob Mahoney, in a January 2011 post in the New York Times basketball blog, singled out Griffin's playmaking abilities as a passer and ball handler 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."  Griffin's weaknesses remain his jump shooting and free throw percentage, which stands at 64.2% following the conclusion of his rookie season.
