We’ve all seen the hilarious endorsement commercials from Kia and Subway. However, watching Blake Griffin “#TakeFlight” in Jordan Brand commercials is on another level. Before all that occurred, Blake had to start from somewhere, and that began with his former AAU team, formerly known as Athletes First — now known as Team Griffin. Team Griffin will now also compete in the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League, one of the most prestigious AAU circuits in the country that provides pivotal exposure to NCAA scouts and coaches.
Now only is Blake Griffin sponsoring his old AAU team, Jordan Brand has stepped in and will be outfitting the team with the latest gear (home and away jerseys) and specifically with Blake’s current shoe, the Superfly.4 and Superfly.4 PO. It’s nice to see Blake Griffin remember where he all started from and take strides to make sure that the hopeful future basketball stars are taken care of.
