Blake Griffin thinks Kawhi Leonard choosing the Clippers is “good for basketball” … but warns the superstar that L.A. definitely has it’s ups and downs!
Griffin would know … he spent 8 seasons with the L.A. Clippers before being traded to the Detroit Pistons in early 2018.
In fact, Blake still spends a bunch of his time in Los Angeles — he was at the famous Comedy Store on Friday night — so, we asked him about Kawhi’s big move.
“I think it’s good for basketball, good for L.A.,” Griffin told TMZ Sports … “I think it’ll bring a little bit more balance to the L.A. basketball scene, so its good!”
But, when we asked Blake if he preferred L.A. to other cites, the 30-year-old didn’t try and sugarcoat his answer.
“No, to be honest. I think playing in another city now I see the advantages and disadvantages to playing in different places.”
He added, “Everything has a positive and a negative. It just depends on what you value.”
Of course, the Kawhi news is rocking the NBA world — he’s leaving his championship Toronto Raptors squad to play in L.A. with Paul George.
Meanwhile, the Lakers added Anthony Davis to play with LeBron James … so yeah, Blake’s right — L.A. basketball is gonna be crazy this season!
