Blake Griffin may currently be serving a four-game suspension for punching an equipment manager, but he’s actually a very chill guy.
For proof, check out this clip of his cameo on Wednesday’s episode of Broad City, in which the Los Angeles Clippers’ star hangs in the 40/40 Club with Ilana – who believes he is merely a kindhearted ginger, until Abbi informs her pal that he “plays for the NBA.” And after that, it’s on.
“I bet he’d be a stamp in my sexual passport,” Ilana beams. “I’ve never been with someone over 6-foot-5!”
Blake actually stands 6-foot-10, so good luck with that, girl! We’re not sure if Griffin has any lines on the episode, but he has been working on his comedy for a while now. After a stint as an intern at Funny or Die, he took the stage at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in late 2013, and followed that some standup at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood. There’s also his work in a series of wonderfully weird ads for Kia and GameFly…and he’s proven adept at explaining Fetty Wap songs to citizens of Los Angeles, too.
No wonder Ilana’s so interested – dude’s a regular renaissance man (who can also dunk).
