NBA Fans React To Seeing Blake Griffin In A Pistons Uniform For The First Time

After spending his entire 9-year career in the idyllic Los Angeles weather sipping martinis with the Jenner sisters, Blake Griffin has officially landed in Detroit (where it is currently 40 degrees) to join a franchise that hasn’t won a playoff game in a decade. Upon hearing that he will have to trade his L.A. comedy club stages in for the freestyle battle stage of The Shelter at 8 Mile, Griffin needed to be physically restrained from Clippers coach Doc Rivers.

The city of Detroit is in desperate need of a star with a little pizazz, and Griffin will supply it just that–his 22.6 ppg average this season is the most for a Pistons player since Jerry Stackhouse averaged 29.8 PPG in 2000-01.

Griffin participated in a press conference today where he did his best ‘I’m happy to be here’ impression.

Here are some of the finest reactions to fans seeing Blake in a different team’s jersey for the first time ever.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
