Now that he’s suffered a meniscus tear and will no longer be playing for Team USA in the upcoming London Olympics, Clippers star power forward Blake Griffin has plenty of time to ruminate on non-sports topics. He was recently asked by LeBronJames.com—yes, it always comes back to LeBron—about what music he was listening to, and like any self-respecting NBA player, he rattled off the usual suspects: Meek Mill, Rick Ross, Kanye West, Jay-Z “of course.” (Little known NBA fact—any baller who doesn’t list Jay-Z as one of his five favorite artists has his contract immediately voided, regardless of team. Jeremy Lin is the one exception.)
Blake was then asked what his choice for official summer jam is, and given the choices of French Montana’s “Pop That,” Kanye West and co.’s “Mercy” and Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like” (not “I Don’t Like THAT,” LBJ.com dude), Blake decides on “Pop That,” due to it being the “newest” of the bunch. (LBJ.com tells him that he and Oklahoma City guard James Harden are the only two on Team USA who went with that, while everyone else went with “Mercy.”) We’re kinda with Blake, though—”Pop That” is definitely the freshest of the three. Plus, it has the best video. #thatsthashitwedolike
