You hate to see Blake Griffin get the year started by getting stuffed like this by Jarrett Allen from the Nets. That’s a 6-11 20 year old stuffing the shitt out of nearly 30-year-old Griffin in the opener for both teams. What I’ve learned from NBA fan is that it doesn’t matter if a team wins or loses, just fire away with the highlights because at the end of the day for a game like this one all that matters are the petty moments where NBA fan can make fun of Blake for getting disrespected like this.
This is also a good chance to address opening night attendance at the Pistons game. I’m told the NBA has never been hotter than it is right now. I guess that’s everywhere…but Detroit. It’s like $500 to catch a game even if you get the tickets for like $10. Guess that’s why ESPN has put its entire company on the line with the Association. Too expensive to catch October basketball…stay home and watch it on TV.
