Ever since he first laced up his kicks in Norman, Oklahoma, Blake Griffin has been one of basketball's most captivating talents. 

A 6'10'' forward who ran the floor like a gazelle, Griffin's never-before-seen combination of size, speed and athleticism vaulted him into the national spotlight as he evolved from a compelling freshman into a coveted franchise-changing prospect during his sophomore year with the Sooners. 

After being selected No. 1 overall by the Los Angeles Clippers, Griffin put the weight of the franchise on his shoulders and began to churn out unprecedented numbers as a rookie. 

Since shattering expectations during his first year as a member of the Association, Griffin has been showered with accolades that have helped solidify his status as one of the game's premier power forwards.
