Video: Blake Griffin finds his playground hoops soulmate in Jordan commercial

Blake Griffin, Rob Mahoney

This is a wonderful spot for many reasons, but D’Arryl Drain’s appearance is the first and foremost. Pairing Blake Griffin’s perfect deadpan with an outwardly goofy character works so well for all involved, and the concept of Griffin’s basketball chemistry with the young chucker is brilliantly simple. Funny, charming and exceptionally well done.

Also: It seems safe to say that Drain leads the park in ‘Kobe Assists.’

That brought a tear of humor to these eyes.  Great stuff.  Can a butterfly sing?
