Found December 08, 2011 on The Last Angry Fan:
Well now we know what Clippers star Blake Griffin did during the NBA lockout, other than intern for Funny or Die—he became a professional ping-pong player, which seems like the easiest thing in the world to do if you go by Griffin’s criteria.  Ah who am I kidding?  Chances are that if I played a game of ping-pong against myself I’d still manage to lose. Anywho, Griffin, in this Red Bull sponsored video, decides it’s time to take on an actual human challenger, so he faces off against an actual pro ping-pong player Soo Yeon Lee, who also happens to be a beautiful, long-legged model on the side. Wise choice. Griffin gets owned by Lee as is to be expected, but one thing that I didn’t expect was the outfit the lovely model/pro ping-pong player is sporting.  While I’m sure it’s not a regulation uniform for professional ping-pong, I doubt very much that Griffin or anyone else on set was complaining.  Good thing ping-pong doesn’t require too much lateral movement, because I don’t think Lee’s six-inch heels would allow for it. Video follows the jump… Anyone else besides me have a sudden urge to follow the world of ladies’ professional ping-pong a lot more closely?  Anyone at all?
