Blake Griffin 3/4-Court Shot: Clippers Star Sinks Long-Range Basket During Practice (VIDEO)

There are two things that NBA fans perennially hear when players report for preseason training camp.

1) Every player is in the best shape of his life.

2) Many players having been working on improving a facet of their games.

While fans love to hear -- but should largely choose to ignore -- the former they can be a bit put off when the latter involves a big man spending time working on his perimeter game.

Having been sidelined (and missed the Olympics) this summer by a knee injury, Blake Griffin looked like he may have spent some more time honing his long-range shots as opposed to his signature dunks.

"I try that every day," he admitted to reporters after sinking the shot.

Hopefully this doesn't mean that Griffin will be more likely to compete in the three-point shooting contest as opposed to the dunk contest at future NBA All-Star weekends.
