Blake Austin Griffin (born March 16, 1989) is an American professional basketball player for the National Basketball Association’s Boston Celtics (NBA). He was the consensus national college player of the year as a sophomore while playing for the Oklahoma Sooners. Griffin was the first overall pick in the 2009 NBA draft by the Los Angeles Clippers, and he has since been a six-time NBA All-Star and a five-time All-NBA selection. Griffin was traded to the Detroit Pistons in January 2018 and will play for them until 2021. Griffin agreed to terms with the Brooklyn Nets in March 2021.

Griffin joined his brother at Oklahoma Christian School in 2003, where they played for their father, head coach Tommy Griffin. They won two state basketball championships while playing together in high school in 2003-04 and 2004-05. In his freshman year, the Oklahoma Christian Saints went 29-0 and won the Class 3A boys state championship game against Riverside Indian School at the State Fair Arena.

Griffin was one of the most highly regarded and decorated recruits in Oklahoma history. He led the Sooners to a 23-12 record as a freshman, averaging 14.7 points and 9.1 rebounds. In the Big 12 Conference, he was ninth in scoring, fourth in rebounding, and third in field goal percentage. He sprained his medial collateral ligament (MCL) in his left knee five minutes into a game against the Kansas Jayhawks. He injured his right knee in a home victory over Texas A&M, less than two months after injuring his left knee. This time, the injury was torn cartilage, and he underwent arthroscopic surgery on March 2, 2008.

Griffin announced on April 7, 2009, that he would forego his final two years of eligibility and enter the NBA draft after his sophomore year. ESPNews aired a national press conference announcing his decision. The Los Angeles Clippers selected him first overall in the 2009 NBA draft. Griffin was named Summer League MVP while playing for the Clippers’ Summer League Team. He injured his kneecap while landing after a dunk in their final preseason game. Griffin’s NBA debut was postponed for seven weeks due to a stress fracture in his left knee, which was discovered the day before the 2009-10 season began. After several weeks of resting the stress fracture, tests revealed that his knee was not healing properly. Griffin underwent surgery in January 2010 to repair a broken left kneecap, causing him to miss the rest of the 2009-10 season.
