Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers is at the 2014 ESPY Awards on Wednesday night, featuring in a skit with Drake and Chris Brown.
Griffin got his big acting start on a series of commercials that were airing during the NBA playoffs.
Griffin was hard-pressed not to laugh after Drake started off the award ceremony with a long monologue, joking about being a bandwagon fan and even blowing in Lance Stephenson’s ear.
Griffin tried not to smile after Drake joked about Donald Sterling, the embattled owner of the Clippers who the NBA is trying to force to sell the team.
Drake noted that the audience was just a few hundred yards from the Staples Center, which is “as close as Donald Sterling is allowed to get.”
The camera immediately cut to Griffin in the audience, who tried to stifle a laugh.
