Lunch break video: Blake Griffin rips packs at Panini


By Andrew Tolentino | Editor

While Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers lost to the Mavericks last week, the superstar’s trip to the Big D was far from being a bust in the hobby. As previously mentioned, Griffin made a pit stop at Panini America headquarters to do some quality controlling on his soon-to-release HRX video card.

The NBA’s hottest rookie — a self-identified former collector — also took some time to sit down and break some boxes with Panini America CEO Mark Warsop.

    UHHH. So what was the point of opening packs? barely got to see any of them. Could have been opened by a collectotor instead as it would have been more valuable to them instead of a pannini rep and a multi-millionaire. kinda like burning cash. I bet that redemption was for a kobe auto.

    As exciting a player as Blake is, he lacks personality. Seen Kobe open with reps and he mentions the cards and makes comments and has some animation, Blake is a bore!

    the ceo of panini is a bore…nothing like listening to a gomer with a lame accent pretend to know something about basketball…..
