There was very little happening in the NBA when Blake Griffin livened things up around the TrueHoop offices by calling from a car somewhere in Oklahoma. He shared his thoughts about the lockout, playing overseas, surfing, his much-maligned owner Donald Sterling, his first time running a basketball camp, and more:
I'm so glad you called. I've been covering the NBA since '98, I can never remember a time where the NBA was more boring. I'm hoping maybe you can tell me something really exciting.
I wish I could. I can make up something if you want to write that.
It would really help if you, for instance, have got a mohawk and joined a volleyball league, like Kevin Love.
It's true. He's doing a service.
I might think of something. I just started to try my hand at surfing, actually.
How's it going?
Not too bad. Kind of easing into it. I'll let you know if I get any better.
