Oklahoma announcer suggests Blake Griffin should join Thunder
For many NBA players the offseason is a time to give back to their alma maters — making appearances and playing or coaching in fundraiser games with other alumni.
It’s all fun and games until someone brings up a change of scenery.
At halftime, Griffin was interviewed by announcer Toby Rowland, who told Griffin: “I thought it was a thunderous start for your team in this game,” to the intense roar of 4,000 people in the crowd.

The Clippers forward kindly laughed it off, though surely Rowland had to feel somewhat accomplished by setting the wheels in motion for a possible Griffin landing next year.
