Despite his lack of experience and perhaps over-expenditure of energy on the court, Blake Griffin showed an incredible amount of poise during the 2012 NBA Season and Playoffs, earning him a rightful spot among the league’s elite in the 2012 Team USA Olympic Team. An unfortunate accident forced him off the team (and deprived the world of a potential redux of Vince Carter’s aerial dominance in 2000), but Blake at 100% will be ready to bring the Clippers back to Championship contention this upcoming season. During the most recent Playoffs, Blake was issued this PE colorway of the Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 Elite with the Red Swoosh and laces (instead of Gold). This is likely the last of the Hyperdunk 2011 we’ll see on Blake as the Lunar Hyperdunk+ is now BG32’s go-to pair, so check out the extra images below and if you want to add these to your budding Blake memorabilia collection, head on over to the auction from jtb513 on eBay.
