Blake Griffin isn’t buying the rumors of LeBron James to Los Angeles. He thinks the king could be headed to the New York Knicks.
The rumor that LeBron James might be heading to Los Angeles after this season will not go away. However, that rumor could finally be put to rest for the time being, according to Clippers star Blake Griffin.
In an appearance on View from the Cheap Seats with the Sklar Brothers, Griffin was asked about the James to L.A. rumors.
“Honestly, I don’t see him coming to L.A. period,” Griffin said. “Listen, again, I have no idea [laughs]. I think something is brewing with him and his group of guys. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I think something’s brewing and they’re going to try to make that work.”
But here is the most interesting part. Griffin could see James joining one his “guys” in Carmelo Anthony, in a move to the Big Apple.
“I could see [LeBron] going to New York before L.A. I still think, when you go to the Garden, it’s a completely different feeling,” Griffin said. “The energy, there seems like there’s just a consistent buzz the entire game. … Even last year when you go play them, it’s still there.”
Blake Griffin is no Adrian Wojnarowski or Shams Charania. He isn’t the most reliable source regarding players around the NBA, especially the league’s brightest star, but this is nonetheless an interesting perspective from one of the NBA’s biggest talents.
