Blake Griffin’s 2016 Stand-Up Comedy Routine About Getting Traded Is Extremely Relevant Right Now
Earlier tonight it was reported that superstar forward Blake Griffin was traded to the Detroit Pistons for a bunch of pieces as the LA Clippers appear to blow up the team and possibly make a run at LeBron James in the offseason.
The Clippers and Pistons have agreed on a deal to trade Blake Griffin for Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley, Boban Marjanovic, a first-round and a second-round draft pick, league sources tell ESPN.
Clippers are including Brice Johnson and Willie Reed in the trade, league sources tell ESPN.
Sources: Protections on Detroit’s 2018 first-round pick headed to Clippers — 2018: 1-4; 2019: 1-4; 2020: 1-4; 2021: unprotected. Detroit will send a 2019 second-round pick in the trade too.
Back in 2016, the 28-year-old Griffin hilariously poked fun of how fickle teams are and how easily NBA players are traded.
After the trade went down, Griffin took to social media and showed that he still has a sense of humor with this hilarious reaction post on Twitter.
While Griffin is putting on a brave face on social media it’s clear that Griffin loved playing in L.A. and getting traded by the team is probably a huge fucking bummer for him.
