Much like how athletes want to be rappers and rappers want to be athletes, big men want to be guards. It’s a long standing tradition, though, most tend to fail at the idea when they attempt to implement it.

But most aren’t Los Angeles Clippers power forward, Blake Griffin.

While Griffin wouldn’t be defined as the dictionary version of a NBA power forward, the high-flying former Oklahoma product did impress during Saturday night’s game against the Denver Nuggets.

With about three and a half minutes remaining in the second quarter, Griffin snagged a rebound and decided to bring the ball up-court. And while that’s not his specialty by any stretch, it was hardly the first time we had seen Griffin handle the rock.

It was the first time we’d seen him handle it like this though.

Drawing oohh’s and ahh’s from the packed Staples Center crowd, Griffin busted out some And-1 mixtape moves, spinning his way through the Nuggets defense.

Unfortunately the basket didn’t count, but that didn’t make the dribbling spectacle any less impressive.
