GQ Cover October 2014

Here is the first look at the new GQ Cover for October 2014 featuring The Los Angeles Clipper star forward Blake Griffin. Below we will give you a preview of the official write up from GQ


Blake Griffin’s new Los Angeles home, not far from the ocean, is big and white and mostly still empty, though he moved almost a year ago.
