While everyone has beeb talking about today’s NBA stars during the playoffs I’ve been thinking about one of the stars of yester-year. Specifically, Blake Griffin and how he should get out Detroit. This is really just a win-win-win-win. The Clippers still get to blow up their team, Blake’s brother gets to go back to the NBA (99% sure Blake got him a spot on the Clippers roster a few years back.) Blake gets to stay in LA and focus on his budding acting career, and Detroit still sells their tickets. They don’t even have to tell anyone it isn’t actually Blake Griffin, like, just have the announcers say “and Griffin with the
SLAM breakaway layup.” Don’t think that will work? You try to find the difference here…
Took me a few minutes too. Add on the fact that most TV’s in Detroit are standard definition anyway, so fans wouldn’t even know the difference. Then who knows? Maybe they start winning. Maybe Blake Griffin’s twin (not googling his name) was the missing link the Pistons have been looking for. They win a championship, the city’s economy starts improving, the sun comes out again. It can all happen
I guess what I’m saying is I don’t want to lose Blake. Detroit has a way of burying it’s talent’s marketability. Like, I was thinking about memorable Detroit athletes of my time and I shit you not the first name that came to mind was Dominic Raiola. Not Justin Verlander, Miguel Cabrerra, Calvin Johnson, Barry Sanders, or even Rasheed Wallace. Nope. Dominic Fucking Raiola. (Second that came to mind was Ben Wallace’s Afro)
The more I think about it, the more upset I get. Don’t you hurt Blake, Detroit.
