An American basketball player, Blake Griffin, is planning to stay away from entry into the NBA draft for another season.
Oklahoma Sooners’ forward was named a McDonald's All-American in 2007. At the McDonald's All-American game in Lexington, Kentucky he won the slam dunk contest. During his high school tenure he led Oklahoma Christian School to four state championships. After having a successful first half of the season, Blake suffered a sprained knee in the 2007-2008 season while being named to the First Team All Big 12 and also the First Team All Rookie Big 12.
Griffin was believed to be an early first-round draft pick if he performed well in workouts and interviews leading up to the draft. But the boy’s choice fell on the sophomore season.
