After 8 Years; Blake Griffin Found Out About Trade On Twitter


After the Los Angeles Clippers promised the world to Blake Griffin this past offseason when signing him to a max contract, they now traded their superstar to the Detroit Pistons out of the blue.

Loyalty goes both ways, and in today’s NBA even trying to be loyal to a team seems impossible. We’ve seen it with Isaiah Thomas this past summer and got another reminder with the Blake Griffin trade. The worst part about Griffin’s trade though is that he wasn’t even notified by his team and found out on Twitter.

Blake Griffin left the Clippers ranking 2nd in scoring, 3rd in rebounding and 5th in steals in franchise history. Such a dedicated and important player has to find out he was traded after 8 years with the team on social media? That’s just low.

Griffin though gracefully accepted it, understanding that the NBA is a business. He said he’s looking forward to playing with the Pistons. No matter what, Blake Griffin is a proffesional through and through.


“You know what?! Basketball is a business. The NBA is a business and they made a decision. The only thing… I just wish I had known or had the opportunity to talk to somebody beforehand. Finding out through Twitter or through other people is a tough way to find out when you’ve been with a franchise for so long. At the end of the day, basketball is a business and I want to play where a team wants me. That’s why I’m excited about being here.”
