Known for his ferocious dunks, strength and leaping ability, Blake Griffin was drafted first overall in the NBA 2009 entry draft by the Los Angeles Clippers. Griffin played two years of college basketball for the University of Oklahoma Sooners.
Griffin missed all of the 2009-2010 NBA season due to a stress fracture in his left knee.
In 2010-2011 Griffin returned to start and play all 82 games. By and large it was a very successful season. Griffin was named an all-star, won the 2011 slam dunk contest (by jumping over a car) and was named Rookie of the Year. He finished the season averaging 22.5 points per game and 12.1 rebounds per game.
