In a new commercial for NBA 2k13, All-Star Blake Griffin says he has big plans for the season. He wants to win All-Star Weekend. Not the game. Not the dunk contest. All of it.
Three-point contest, Rising Stars challenge, even the half-time shows. That's a bold approach for Griffin to take, considering that he's coming off of knee surgery and he might want to get a jumpshot first.
This is all one big gag, naturally, but more and more I'm impressed with the time that Griffin spent with Funny or Die a year ago for an internship. His comedic timing is pretty great. Griffin's a polarizing figure, already, but he's also really engaging on camera. When he's not, you know, dunking on a player you enjoy.
