Blake Griffin Announces His Retirement

Blake Griffin surprised everyone by announcing his retirement on Tuesday after a 14-year career. His 14-year career included All-Star selection, Rookie of the Year honors and a dunk contest victory. “He is grateful for every moment of his career,” he said in a social media post.

Griffin was the No. 1 overall pick in 2009 by the Los Angeles Clippers from Oklahoma. But he missed his first season due to a knee injury. He returned some time later to earn the Rookie of the Year award in 2011, and won All-Star.

“Blake was a big part of the turnaround here,” said current Clippers coach Tyronn Lue. “Athletically, Blake was one of the most dynamic players we’ve seen in this league in a long time.” One thing he doesn’t get credit for is his passing ability. “He’s had a great career.”

Blake Austin Griffin is an American former professional basketball player with the Los Angeles Clippers of the National Basketball Association. Griffin was born on March 16, 1989 in Oklahoma. He played college basketball for the Oklahoma Sooners, being named the unanimous national college player of the year as a sophomore.

Despite the ups and downs of his career, Griffin has repeatedly said in his Instagram posts that he is grateful for his NBA life. “All of these experiences have made my 14 years in the league truly unforgettable and I can’t help but feel grateful,” Griffin said.

He was named Second Team All-NBA three times and Third Team All-NBA twice.
