Blake Griffin takes shot at Pistons fans after getting booed
Blake Griffin knows that the Detroit Pistons fans were not saying “Boo-lake” on Friday night.
The Brooklyn Nets big man took a shot at the Pistons faithful after he heard boos during Brooklyn’s 96-90 victory in Detroit. A reporter asked Griffin if it was surprising that he got booed.
“Surprising? No, I mean, I heard they booed Andre Drummond last night,” said Griffin, per SportsNet New York. “What did he do? He just got traded. So no, I assumed that was going to happen. So no, not surprising at all. But I didn’t really hear it until the end.”
Drummond’s Philadelphia 76ers played in Detroit on Thursday, defeating the Pistons 109-98. He even heard boos when he came to play in Detroit during the preseason and offered a response to it.
As for Griffin, he played in Detroit for three years and actually gave Pistons fans a reason to boo upon his exit. He clearly does not understand why they would boo Drummond though and has no problem calling them out for it.
