More on Blake Griffin
In today’s editions of The Oklahoman I wrote about Oklahoma forward Blake Griffin. In a Q&A with The Oklahoman, Griffin also talked about why he doesn’t worry about the possibility of playing for the Thunder, what areas of his game he’s trying to work on and how he’s handled being in the national spotlight.
DM: How much do you think returning to school for your sophomore year has helped you develop your game?
BG: I think it’s helped a lot, not only getting a chance to work on my skills but just a year of maturity and being able to understand the game a little bit better. I think it’s helped me more than anything.
DM: What kind of developments are you seeing in your game?
BG: Just understanding more. Just knowing when to kind of pick my spots and when to be really aggressive and when to kind of back off and play a little bit differently. And being able to play different styles.
DM: How much do you think about the possibility of playing for the Thunder?
BG: I try not to think about just because I don’t think it’ll be fair to my team and our coaching staff if I was worried about that or thinking about that. If it happens it happens if it doesn’t it doesn’t. Hopefully I’m still going to play and I’ll still play as hard as I can. That would be great, but I’m not stressed over it and I’m not going to beat myself up over it.
DM: What more would you like to add to your game before taking it to the next level?
BG: Just keep developing everything and really working on my shot more. I put in a lot of time and I think that’s something that will really help me expand my game even more.
