LeBron Thinks Blake Griffin Trade is 'Unfortunate'

  • Tobias Harris Forward

After he spent his whole National Basketball Association career in sunny LA, Blake Griffin found out that he is headed to Detroit, MI. He hasn't been the most efficient scorer out of those plays this season, but Griffin is a hard matchup for opposing big men when healthy because he has the strength to overwhelm power forwards in the post and the athleticism to beat centers off the dribble when he faces up to the basket.

But there is no loyalty in the NBA - Griffin was traded Monday to the Pistons for Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley, Boban Marjanovic, a first and a second round pick. He signed a five-year, $171 million deal, which did not include a no-trade clause. At the end of the two-hour fete, Griffin rose and spoke, telling teammates, his coach and the owner, "I want my legacy to be a Clipper". "He's not committed. That's the narrative of how it goes, so I definitely know that firsthand".

This season, he is averaging 22.6 points, 7.9 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 33 games for the 25-24 Clippers, who are in ninth place in the Western Conference, 14 1/2 games behind the Golden State Warriors. In addition, the Clippers will send Brice Johnson and Willie Reed to Detroit. The Pistons have lost eight straight heading into Tuesday night's game against Cleveland.

James - speaking prior to Cleveland's 125-114 loss to the Pistons - shared his thoughts on the harsh criticism players receive when they choose to leave a franchise, compared to when teams opt to trade away. Detroit acquired Bradley in a trade with Boston last offseason, but he's in the final season of his contract. Griffin, who is from Oklahoma, loves Los Angeles. He has evolved as a player in 8 seasons, but has also developed a knack for picking up injuries, not to mention punching staffers.

Griffin's health is another big question considering he has a long list of injuries that have forced him to miss more than 80 games over the last three seasons.
