Blake Griffin Almost Reconsidered Going to the Nets After He Found Out There Was Just One Ball

On today's Pardon My Take, one of Mr. Cat and Mr. Commenter's best friends joined the show once again. Blake Griffin, the two-time Blake of the Year Award winner, hopped on Zoom to discuss his new show on truTV, his recent move here to New York City, and his dunking storyline. In case you have no idea what's going on, Griffin now plays for the Brooklyn Nets on a team with Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden. All of those guys can score, there is no doubt about that. But remember, there is only one basketball on the court at all times. That's a discussion Blake and the guys had on today's show:

Mr. Commenter: Are you concerned at all that there's just one ball? 

Blake Griffin: Yeah. See, when I originally signed, I didn't realize that until somebody tweeted at me and they were like, "How's this going to work?" And I was like, "Oh, shoot." So, you know, it definitely made me rethink my choice. But, you know, here we are. I'm stuck here.

Mr. Cat: It's really funny, because that's everyone's take when they saw the original KD and Kyrie, and then James Harden gets added, and everyone's like, "There's only one ball. How's it going to work?" Well, it turns out, they're really fucking good basketball players, so they can figure out a way to make it work.

Blake Griffin: Yeah, and it's like, last night, James had 15 assists. Also, I don't know what he averaged in Houston, but like nine assists? That's nine shot for somebody else.

Wow. Well, thank goodness for the folks on Twitter who reminded Blake on Twitter that there is indeed just one ball on the court at all times. They clearly had a say in his decision on looking at which team to go to next.
