Blake has a white mother and an African American father, and apparently has some Haiti blood in there too.

Joakim Noah's father Yannick

Joakim Noah's father Yannick Noah was a black French tennis player who won the French Open in 1983.

I always think that Blake Griffin looks like a pumped up version of Deron Williams.

Blake Griffin

Correct he has a white mother and black father, his mother has very strong red hair(I remember them showing her a lot during Oklahoma Uni. games) which explains why he has the red hair, his older brother Taylor Griffin also has the red hair.

I always thought that Blake

I always thought that Blake Griffin's hair did look a bit red although it was obvious that he had some mixed race in him.

People like the Rock and Rikishi in the WWE had Somaon heritage as well, not probably a basketball hotbed as a lot of people from that region tend to be very strong and sturdy builds including the women as they get older.

If you ever research the Tonga Royal Family you will see some massive individuals their Queen Sālote was bigger than Rikishi!

Deron Williams is half white

Deron Williams is half white and half black..... I remember them showing his mom at the draft- who was white, along with a decent amount of his family.

All these are known to anyone

All these are known to anyone who actually watches sports. They talk about Troy and Hines Ward ethnicity it seems like every season. And the younger guys if you ever saw them play in college they showed their parents during March madness.
