Griffin split games of HORSE with the Subway dude

Former Oklahoma star Blake Griffin is making the rounds in New York this week, doing loads of promotional appearances in advance of Thursday night's draft. On Tuesday, he even found time to play that fat-guy-turned-skinny-guy from Subway in a game of H-O-R-S-E.
Or S-U-B-W-A-Y, actually.
And thank God, it was caught on tape.

According to Jared from Subway (who is still looking good, by the way), the sandwich seller (Jared) and Clipper savior (Blake) split a couple of games. And though this is startling, it should not be considered a big deal because A) Griffin won't make his millions shooting, and B) Jared isn't someone Griffin is likely to face in the Western Conference (unless the Grizzlies sign Jared to a 10-day contract, which is more likely than you think.)
Later Tuesday, Griffin appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon , at which point it became apparent that Fallon follows college basketball about as much as most people follow his TV show, which is to say not at all. He seemed shocked to learn that Blake has a brother named Taylor who also played at Oklahoma. Then Fallon challenged Blake to an awkward dunk contest and predictably lost.
So to recap: Blake Griffin dunks better than Jimmy Fallon but is a comparable shooter to Jared from Subway.
