In anticipation of what’s sure to be a deep run in the Olympics by Team USA Basketball, the fine folks over at Hoopmixtape have released a bite-sized highlight real from recent the scrimmages in Las Vegas. Many of the team’s brightest stars shine through here but, as the title indicates, first-timer Blake Griffin is the video’s focal point, throwing down some nasty dunks to the delight of a packed gym.

Team USA will do just fine without him, but if he continues to make Russel Westbrook-caliber defenders look stupid like that, a call up should be expected.
