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.
