One of the rising faces of the NBA, Los Angeles Clipper Blake Griffin, is now one of the faces of the Jordan Brand according to CBS Sports. Joining Oklahoma City Thunder Guard Russell Westbrook, Griffin joins the sneaker brand which bears the names of the game’s greatest player. 

Griffin debuted in Jordan Brand kicks last night in a victory over the Memphis Grizzlies by  sporting a sharp pair of cobalt blue Super Fly Jordans. The Clippers’ high-flying forward and two time NBA All-Star  has become the latest NBA star to join Nike’s Jordan Brand joining teammate Chris Paul, Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, Nets guard Joe Johnson, Heat guard Ray Allen and more.

The Nike-affiliated brand is expected to officially announce the signing of Griffin very shortly. Griffin adds Jordan to his long list of endorsement deals including 2K Sports, Subway, KIA Motors and more, becoming one of the most marketable athletes in all of sports.
