October 12th, 2015, by Khalil Garriot- Blake Griffin admitted he didn’t know what to expect about playing handball. He just wanted to develop a new set of skills.
“The Crossover” is a new Web series featuring Griffin, a forward on the Los Angeles Clippers, trying his hand at different sports and exploring all his training options in order to reach his goals.
“I want a long and healthy career,” Griffin said. “I want to be quicker, be stronger and I want to be a leader.”
In the debut episode of “The Crossover,” narrated by Griffin himself, Griffin practiced with handball legend Timothy “Timbo” Gonzalez at the West 4th Street Handball Courts in New York City. Gonzalez, famous for his hand-eye coordination and speed, said the NBA player is a quick learner.
“He’s really good,” said Gonzalez, who taught Griffin the importance of court control in handball. “I’ve never had anyone able to hit the ball to me back as many times as he did.”
