​Think Blake Griffin is still salty about being traded? The ​Pistons forward and former ​Clippers star famously snubbed Los Angeles owner Steve Ballmer the common decency of a handshake before the Pistons-Clippers game. Griffin tried to explain that his sprint into the locker room is part of his pregame routine, but some think he's being disingenuous. 

Griffin has been very open about his feelings after being shipped from Los Angeles to Detroit. He claims he was ​"lied to" by Ballmer and Doc Rivers after signing a max contract with the promise of being a franchise cornerstone in LA. 


The salt from Griffin is obvious. Ballmer had called for Griffin twice, and he just completely blew him off before bolting for the safety of the locker room. That would have taken two seconds, Blake.

​​Blake got the last laugh in an emphatic fashion, putting up 44 points to lead Detroit to a 109-104 win. Ballmer may not be so welcoming after Griffin tore the Clippers up.
