Griffin Wants To Play For Team USA In 2016
Blake Griffin expressed an interest in playing for Team USA at the 2016 Olympics.
"Yeah, absolutely, it's something that I want to do," Griffin said. "Obviously it's a great honor.”
Griffin was in Team USA’s training camp in preparation for the last Olympics.
Griffin was considered to have a good chance to make the team, but had to drop out due to a left knee injury that required surgery.
“I was really looking forward to playing last year,” Griffin said. “It was very disappointing not being able to be there. I kind of turned my sights to getting back healthy. So my next goal for that is 2016.
"They talked about it last summer when I got hurt, about me coming back and being involved in the process over the next four summers.”
