Poor Blake Griffin

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.

Lets see how Detroit Pistons attendance is doing at the start of year two at Little Caesars Arena. @EmptySeatsPics https://t.co/p4x3A4TVKI
