Here’s a throwback for you: It’s 2005, the Texas football team is preparing for it national title run, Rick Barnes has the men’s basketball team running on all cylinders and Kevin Durant is in high school. Slam Magazine dug up this old clip of an AAU game featuring a young Durant, about to head into his senior year, and rising sophomore named Blake Griffin facing off in an AAU game that summer.
This video is pretty great. Notice the future Heisman Trophy winning, No. 1 pick in the NFL draft playing? Yeah, that really is Sam Bradford playing with Griffin.
Enjoy the first 20 seconds of this video.
