By the third USA Basketball game there will be about a billion 10 year-old Asian kids imitating Blake’s dunks on some 7-foot rice basket somewhere. Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant’s wallets can attest to the great benefits international celebrity can bring. Of course as American fans we’re aware of Blake’s mixed race black freckled car-leaping abilities, but I seriously doubt he’s as well known overseas. The dude’s never played for Team USA and has only won one playoff series. Things are about to change quickly for him.
Did you see Carmelo and LeBron’s faces? Blake Griffin is going to see so many alley oops foreign centers will know what his balls smell like. Nick Anderson/Clarence Weatherspoon/Grandmama 1993 NBA Jam style. He’s on fire…crotch.
PS – Uncle Drew givin ‘em the business.
