‘The Blake Face’ – Has the Son of Basketball Star Chris Paul Started the Newest Meme?
Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers is a monster on the court — the guy is more than six-feet tall for crying out loud — and we think it’s time that he gets his own internet meme. If Tim Tebow gets one, why shouldn’t Griffin? Well, we might not have to wait as long as we originally thought thanks to the son of his teammate Chris Paul.
This year, the best accessory for an NBA player to take to the podium after a game is their own kids. We saw this last week with Orlando Magic forward Glen Davis, whose adorable 20-month-old daughter Amari mumbled baby talk into the mic during the post-game presser. Following the Clippers’ victory over the Memphis Grizzles, it was Paul’s son Lil’ Chris’ turn and he became somewhat of a TV star himself. Watch him imitate Blake Griffin.
That’s Griffin’s “Blake Face,” which the power forward does after posturing a hapless opponent with one of his thunderous dunks. Much to the amusement of the assembled press, Lil’ Chris is able to reproduce the notorious scowl on demand.
So, what do you think? Do we have the next big internet meme on our hands?
