A blockbuster trade happened in the NBA yesterday.
One of the most electrifying players in the NBA, Blake Griffin, was traded from the Los Angeles Clippers to the Detroit Pistons.
After being drafter in 2009 first overall, the Clippers decided they wanted to go in a different direction and start over completely.
Griffin issued a statement this morning via Twitter.
According to HotNewHipHop, the Clippers have now been looking to trade DeAndre Jordan & Lou Williams, currently their two best players.
My personal outlook is that although the Pistons did get better adding an All-Star caliber player to their roster, Andre Drummond and DeAndre Jordan are such similar players that I don’t think the Pistons will be any better than the Clippers were. With that said, the Clippers were playoff contenders for multiple years, something the Pistons haven’t been in quite a while. So yes, the Pistons did get better, but without an All-Star point guard, I don’t think this makes them a challenge for the Celtics, Cavs, or Raptors.
