Clippers star Blake Griffin teams up with CHLA patient for an amazing cause


In a 24-hour news cycle that tends to cater to the negative, Clippers forward Blake Griffin has teamed up with a Children's Hospital of Los Angeles patient in one of the most positive sports stories you will hear about all year.

Griffin and Justice Griffith, an 11-year old sports fan that was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) at the age of 10, have collaborated on designing a custom pair of Jordan Super.Fly 5 shoes called the "Just 5". 

Griffin will wear the customized kicks during Wednesday's game against the Wizards. Afterwards, they will be auctioned off with all proceeds going to the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles as part of the annual Make March Matter ™ fundraising program.
