WATCH: Blake Griffin’s top career dunks!

The Detroit Pistons raised more than a few eyebrows across the sports world when they acquired All-Star forward Blake Griffin from the Los Angeles Clippers. In return, the Pistons sent Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley, Boban Marjanovic, a first-round and a second-round draft pick to the Clippers. 

The Pistons were in need of a jolt after having lost eight consecutive games and fallen out of the playoff race, and they’re hoping that Griffin’s acquisition will provide just that. Head coach Stan Van Gundy could elect to run Griffin and fellow big man Andre Drummond in a pick and roll offense, while Griffin also possesses a nice mid-range jump shot as well as underrated passing abilities.

Let’s also not forget that Griffin is regarded among the best dunkers in basketball, and has routinely been featured on ESPN “SportsCenter” Top 10 lists.

They also hope that Griffin will help the team fill some more seats at Little Caesars Arena. Though both the Pistons and Red Wings are in their first year in the brand new, state of the art arena, their crowd sizes have left much to be desired, especially the former.

Check out some of his best dunks during the first portion of his career! Are you looking forward to seeing this in Detroit?



When it comes to Detroit Pistons basketball, things have been pretty boring for some time now. After losing eight games in a row, the Pistons now sit at 22-26 which places them in 9th place in the Eastern Conference, 2.5 games behind the Philadelphia 76ers for the No. 8 seed.

But on Monday night, the Pistons traded for 5-time NBA All-Star Blake Griffin and the fan reaction was overwhelming, some who were very excited about the move and some who felt the Pistons got the short end of the stick.
