OU basketball player

I just wish him a speedy and quick recovery. I hope he knows that everything he's done ... he's touched so many people in so many ways. Not just basketball but in so many ways.

I never got to see him play, but I remember stories from my dad and people like that. All the things he could do. How smooth he was.

I want to say I was already at OU when I first met him. I talked to him on the phone before about the whole number thing. I called him and I said, “Hey, Mr. Tisdale, this is Blake Griffin. I wanted to call and see if it was O.K. if I wore No. 23.” He laughed. He said, “As long as you start doing big things up there again.” I said, “We'll try.”

He's just been a positive supporter.
