LOS ANGELES — Former OU star and Clippers rookie Blake Griffin during his media session at All-Star Weekend today spoke about the loss of friend and former teammate at Oklahoma Christian School Wilson Holloway.

Griffin grew emotional as he discussed Holloway’s passing and said he will dedicate all that he does here to Holloway.

Griffin also said Tuesday’s game against the Thunder in Oklahoma City will be “bittersweet”  because he must now return to Oklahoma to attend Holloway’s funeral, which is scheduled for Monday. Griffin goes on to talk about Holloway’s spirit, and how he wouldn’t want anyone to feel sorry for him or upset because of his passing.

Said Griffin: “He’s better now. He’s not hurting.”
