Clippers’ Blake Griffin Interning at Funny Or Die

Faced with an NBA lockout that could last through next year, Clippers star Blake Griffin is doing what millions of other unemployed 22-year-olds around the country are forced to do: he’s taking an unpaid internship. The NBA’s Rookie of the Year just signed up for a week long internship at the offices of Funny Or Die. The AP reports he may even be getting people’s coffee.

“I don’t mind doing stuff like that,” he told reporter Jake Coyle. “It’s not a problem for me.”

We hope the folks at Funny Or Die have figured out something a little more productive for him to do. Perhaps stuff that involves him jumping over Will Ferrell. Or challenging the Landlady to some one-on-one.
