Blake Griffin has taken his acting skills to another level with his latest video. While the superstar for the Los Angeles Clippers gets plenty of attention for his theatrics on the court, he has also done plenty of commercials.
It is hard to watch TV for an extended period of time without seeing Blake Griffin’s face, but thankfully, he is usually providing great entertainment. Like many NBA stars such as Stephen Curry and Russell Westbrook, he has done a variety of commercials including for companies such as Kia and AT&T.
In his latest stint, his teammate and Clippers forward Matt Barnes recorded a video of Griffin mocking their fellow teammate in a hilarious way. You may think that it is a little mean-spirited, but he was clearly doing it all in fun, and obviously has a great relationship with teammate Austin Rivers.

Austin Rivers is, of course, the son of Doc Rivers, the coach for the Los Angeles Clippers. If it were not for his dad coaching, he clearly would not be playing for the Clippers, and possibly not have a place in the NBA.
He played his college basketball at Duke and tends to average around 8 points per game with under 2 rebounds and assists per game, although he only plays less than half of the game as well.
BREAKING: Doc Rivers just acquired Blake Griffin's impersonation of Austin Rivers for a second-round pick.

The Instagram video that Matt Barnes posted clearly proves that the team is able to have fun during their practices, but what would the coach think about his behavior and mockery of his son?
Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers travel to Philadelphia tonight to face the 76ers in what might be one of the easiest wins they will get in years. The hilarious mockery of Austin Rivers needs to be seen by everyone, and just maybe he will be motivated to work on his game, as a result.
