Blake Griffin Hype Machine Rolling

Just ran across something fun.

Oklahoma basketball star Blake Griffin is doing a video diary for, and his first installment is up. It’s a little bit dated; the footage is from the first days of practice. But you definitely get some fun insight. The locker room. The apartment. The practice gym.

My favorite moment actually didn’t involve Griffin, though. He puts Sooner women’s basketball player Nyeshia Stevenson on the spot. She talks a little preseason noise about the OU women.

Fun stuff.

Here’s betting there will be more installments as the season goes on.  After all, I spotted Griffin at Big 12 media day toting his camera around.  

Who knows who might make a cameo on his diary?
