OOPS! Fan ejected after altercation with Blake Griffin

Taking on a man of Blake Griffin’s size probably isn’t the best idea!

During the Detroit Pistons’ 129-123 overtime victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night, Griffin was seen getting into a heated exchange of words with a fan that was sitting courtside. Though it’s not clear what was said, it was definitely enough to draw the ire of the big man. He eventually calmed down and returned to Detroit’s huddle, while the fan was escorted away by arena security.

The Michigan native and Red Wings forward shared the news of his book titled “Shoot For The Goal: The Justin Abdelkader Story” from his Instagram account.

The story follows a young hockey player from Michigan who grows up dreaming of playing for the Red Wings and goes over the steps he took to make that dream a reality.

Here’s what Abdelkader had to say on Instagram about the book:

“Excited to finally share the project I have been working on, a children’s book about a boy from the west side of Michigan who had dreams of playing for the Detroit Red Wings. It has been so much fun reflecting on my childhood and all the obstacles that brought me to where I am today. This book is so special to me not only because it goes through my journey as a hockey player/student, but because I get to further my passion for children and reading through Abby’s All Stars by giving them one more book to read! 📚Follow along for details on how to get your copy and signings I’ll be doing for “Shoot For The Goal” as well. Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it!”
