See how Blake Griffin found out he was traded

Blake Griffin found out that he was traded from the Clippers to the Pistons via Twitter. It’s such a crazy world that we live in these days where social media runs everything. He kind of made a scene about the whole thing during his first press conference with the Pistons so let’s take a closer look at the situation. One, Blake said that it was quite a surprise when he found out that he was traded period. He just got a max deal from the Clippers so he definitely thought he was set in the sunny weather of L.A. for the foreseeable future. THEN out of no where one day he is going through his 100+ Twitter DMs from girls that range on the scale 4-7 with an average of 4.9 he see’s his notifications go from 2 to 22,000 so he knows something is up. He clicks on his notifications to see what’s up and “Blake Griffin traded to the Detroit Pistons.” Let that one sink in a minute Blake. Damn. That sucks. I don’t think there’s anything that he could have done differently. The Clips realized that they fucked up giving him all that money and then they wanted to flip him for anything. Avery Bradley on an expiring contract? YUP. Check please!

As for Blake being salty he found out on twitter? Don’t spend all your free time on twitter, especially when you’re in your Kia. As for the Clippers – normally I would expect them to reach out to their players before the news spreads to social media. Not a good look when you don’t but I’m cool with it in this scenario. I can see how that news could travel quicker than you could spread it – Blake Griffin’s contract for an expiring contract? YUP!!!! RETWEET RETWEET.

Sorry Blake, did you buy your winter coat yet? You shouldn’t wear flip flops in the Detroit winter.
