Video: Blake Griffin gets us in the mood for some Olympic basketball
The London Olympics are only a few weeks away and this clip of USA Basketball’s Blake Griffin in practice has raised our excitement yet again.
With so much other stuff on we haven’t had much of a chance to get too excited about the Olympics. But with the Euros now out of the way, we are starting to really look forward to the sporting extravaganza that awaits us.
Obviously Katie Taylor is the one we are most looking forward to seeing but the battle between Johan Blake and Usain Bolt is a must-watch too. And the Spanish and Brazilian football teams means that tournament will also be brilliant to watch.
Then there’s basketball. As usual that means yet another Dream Team sent over by the US. This year’s team isn't quite as ‘dreamy’ due to injuries to the likes of Derrick Rose and Dwyane Wade but they will still be the ones to beat.
They are currently in practice after naming their squad at the weekend and LA Clippers dunk machine Blake Griffin made the cut. With a bunch of kids watching, Griffin decided to entertain them with a few signature moves.
Roll on July 27.
