Blake Griffin represents his country well while letting the side of a wall give him a pass to dunk off of (VIDEO)

Fourth-Place Medal

Nearly two months after we last saw him, in the wake of his Los Angeles Clippers bowing out in the second round of the 2012 NBA playoffs, it's easy to forget that Blake Griffin can do things like toss a basketball off of the side of a building, gather the carom, and throw down a one-handed stuff off of one leg.

The 2012 USA Men's Basketball roster will be unveiled at 8 p.m., Eastern, on Saturday night. We will have full, BDL-styled coverage over at Fourth Place Medal.
