Los Angeles Clippers high flyer Blake Griffin had been synonymous with the Hyperdunk franchise until this season, when he joined the Jumpman and started rocking Jordan Brand’s Super.Fly performance baller. So while we might not see the dynamic young power forward rocking them on court any time soon, it’s not too much of a stretch to imagine this new Nike Hyperdunk+ PE at Staples Center, particularly with Lob City’s soft blue-accented throwback unis. Let us know what you think about the future of BG32 player exclusives after you’ve seen more of what could have been and grab this pair today from NikeStore.

Jordan Brand’s burgeoning new generation of stars received a rapid jolt with the addition of the soaring highlight reel Blake Griffin. We know he can dunk unlike any other, but does he have that fluid style and flair that MJ had? During this quirky moment in yesterday’s pre-game warm-up between the Los Angeles Clippers and Miami Heat, Blake Griffin displayed his inner Jumpman by dunking the ball in iconic fashion – toes pointed out and the basketball at the highest peak of elevation. Was this a candid moment, or did Blake tip off the photographers with a “hey…watch this”? Check out the comparison between Blake’s version and Michael’s original below.

Jordan Brand Signs Blake Griffin

The next generation of Jordan Brand is looking mighty healthy as the brand that Michael built has been fortified with the presence of one of the most exciting players in the game today. Blake Griffin, who found his way into our hearts with his deadpan charisma and magnificent dunking showcase, officially joins Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Ray Allen, and newcomer Russell Westbrook as the brand’s headlining athletes, teaming up with CP3 in one of the biggest basketball markets in the nation.

This may come as a surprise considering the sudden stoppage of the momentum gained by Nike and the non-signature flagship Hyperdunk model, and many of Blake’s fans projected the Oklahoma alumni to eventually join LeBron, KD, and Kobe as Nike’s exclusive signature-sneaker club. However, this is certainly an outstanding strategic move by Jordan Brand in the wake of Dwyane Wade’s departure; Los Angeles, New York, Miami, OKC, and Chicago make up the bulk of the big-market teams, and Jordan Brand certainly has their chess pieces in the right places.

This week, in his season debut, Blake wore a Royal/Black colorway of the Jordan Super.Fly, which all but sealed Griffin’s allegiance with Jordan Brand. The question that instantly surfaces is: Will Blake get his own signature shoe? Who will get his own shoe first – Russell, or Blake? Will either of them even get their own shoe, or will they be the ambassadors for the top-shelf models like the Super.Fly? There’s a lot of potential with this newfound partnership, so be sure to stick with Sneaker News for all updates regarding the newly acquainted Jordan Brand and Blake Griffin connection.

blake griffin jordan super fly october 31 Blake Griffin Opens 2012 13 NBA Season In Jordan Super.Fly

In an era in which what’s “on feet” is as titillating as any other aspect of the game of basketball, Sneaker News has been doing its best to be on top of covering all the major player movements between footwear brands. This NBA off-season was one of the most eventful we’ve undergone in years, with Dwyane Wade making an incredibly daring move from Jordan Brand to Li-Ning and Russell Westbrook being called on take his place. Although the NBA Season as officially started, the dust hasn’t settled yet; last night, during the Los Angeles Clippers’ season opener against the Memphis Grizzlies, NBA superstar Blake Griffin put the Hyperdunk 2012s aside and whipped out the Jordan Super.Fly, donning the Jumpman logo in an NBA game for the first time in his career. Blake Griffin coasting side by side with Chris Paul in Jordans, in one of the biggest basketball hot-spots in the world? That’ll certainly register another 10.0 on the Richter scale. Let us know what you think and stay tuned because this story has yet to entirely unfold!

Blake Griffin Re-Signs With Nike

blake griffin nike contract Blake Griffin Re Signs With Nike

You can’t make up Blake Griffin’s career trajectory. From missing his entire first season due to a serious injury with the threat of perhaps never regaining his old self, to becoming one of the most sought-after market icons, Blake Griffin’s meteoric rise to stardom can be attest to one thing – he can play basketball pretty well. His skills garnered an invite to the 2012 Team USA squad, but an untimely injury forced him to miss the Games, depriving basketball fans of what could have been a murderous dunking spree on the entire world.

But Blake’s been busy wheeling and dealing numbers as well; a few months back, he re-upped with the hot Clippers for five years, and it appears he settled his precarious contract situation with Nike as he showed up at Media Day wearing a PE colorway of the Nike Hyperdunk. While the full details of his new commitment to Nike has yet to be disclosed, it’s clear that Nike will keep him around for more than the $400,000 that it required to lock him down in his first contract. Watch for Nike and Blake to take Nike Basketball to new heights, so check with us for updates and we’ll keep you in tune to any interesting Nike x Blake Griffin developments.
