Blake Griffin Focused on Clippers, Not Returning to OKC in Free Agency

Former Sooner Blake Griffin brushed aside notions that those close to him would be recruiting the star power forward to play for his hometown team after the season.

"People that I talk to and my friends and family from back home, I think they're ... I would say true friends and family, where they know that my main focus is this season and this team," Griffin said after the Clippers defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 111-80 on Wednesday night. "And they know that I enjoy playing here and I love this team, coaching staff, everybody. So they know that that's my main focus. So I think they pretty much know not to bring that up."
