Former OU basketball star Blake Griffin had a hectic day Monday at ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Conn., getting interviewed for several shows and posing for photographs.
"It was really cool,” Griffin said. "I got to see the whole ESPN campus out here in Bristol. I made my rounds and did a bunch of different interviews. It was just really cool to get to see the different studios.”
Griffin, the expected No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft on Thursday, was interviewed live on ESPN Radio’s "The Herd with Coin Cowherd” in the morning and "Tirico & Van Pelt” in the afternoon. He had taped interviews for ESPN’s "NBA Draft Preview Show,” "SportsCenter” and "Outside the Lines.” He appeared on ESPNEWS’ "Hot List” and worked in other media, including an "NBA Today” podcast.
Griffin posed for photos on ESPN’s cafe basketball court, which is used for lunchtime pick-up games and intramural leagues.
But don’t look to see him in a "SportsCenter” commercial.
"Not yet,” Griffin said. "We’ll see what we can get set up, though.”
