Off Season Instagrams – Blake Griffin

Like the majority of NBA players, Blake Griffin spends his off-season working on his game… Perfecting what he does well & adding a couple of new things into his game.

Blake’s always been known as one of the league leading funboys & he’s always had a strong photo-bombing game.

It’s good to see that during his off-season workouts, he’s spending some time perfecting the art of the photo-bomb with #BTHype’s favourite son, Sasha Vujacic.

Your move, Chris “king of the bomb” Bosh.

Off Season Instagrams – Dwyane Wade


After LeBron James announced he’d be taking his talents back to Cleveland for the next two seasons… The Miami Heat’s future was sent in a tailspin… No more ‘King’.

Dwyane Wade’s having nothing of it… So, along with Pat Riley signing Luol Deng as the team’s starting small forward, Wade’s looking for a new partner to help him finish those highlight lobs that we’ve all become accustomed to as regular viewing during regular season Heat basketball.

So, today on the recruitment drive, Wade hit up Seaworld to check out the much hyped LePorpoise James.

I think Miami have found their new highlight machine.

My new teammate that I'm throwing lobs 2 now haaaa. Great time @seaworldsandiego.. #mensvacay #dolphinfever

The Miami Heat have held the mantle of the NBA’s premiere poolside partyboys for the past few seasons, with only the L.A. Clippers providing any real competition, however it looks like there is a new kid on the block which should have Miami and L.A. worried.
