Blake Griffin visits ‘Sesame Street,’ makes chicken noises (VIDEO)

Ball Don't Lie

Although his overall popularity dipped a bit in his second full season — blame a tendency to flop for that — Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin is still one of the NBA's brightest young players. At a very basic level, his dunks will remain thrilling for the foreseeable future, and his expanding all-around game should keep him relevant. Griffin's not going anywhere, and we're only going to see more of him on the court and on our TVs.

That goes for children, too. As you can see from the video above, Griffin will appear on "Sesame Street" when the landmark premieres its 24th season this Monday. He'll appear with Abby Cadabby, a fairly new character who wasn't around during my own childhood, and face off against a real-life (puppet) chicken in a chicken-noise competition. It's standard "Sesame Street" stuff, I guess, just with a really good basketball player on set. It's good to see they don't change their style for everyone.

Also, Mario Lopez appears briefly at the end of the video. Don't say you weren't warned.
