No Break For All-Star Blake Griffin
In the midst of the NBA's longest road trip of the season - 11 straight road games - and having just completed a span of eight games in 13 days, the All-Star break could not come fast enough for many on the Clippers roster.
There's not much of a break, however, for Clippers rookie Blake Griffin. Griffin will have a jam-packed schedule of All-Star events waiting for him when he returns to STAPLES Center this week.
Between the Rookie/Sophomore Challenge, the Dunk ContestAll-Star Game itself, Griffin will become the first NBA player to ever appear in competitions Friday, Saturday and Sunday of All-Star weekend. And with that exciting, yet daunting assignment ahead of him, the runaway contender for Rookie of the Year made sure to get as much rest as possible on the road - something that's actually easier than being at home.
