It’s bigger than basketball! And during this tough time I want to help the people that make my life, my family’s lives and my teammates lives easier. Me and my family pledge to donate $100,000 to the Fiserv Forum staff. We can get through this together! 🙏🏽

Rod Beard of The Detroit News:
#Pistons All-Star Blake Griffin is planning to donate $100,000 to help the workers at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit.

Many teams – including the Pistons, Mavericks, Nets and Wizards – have followed Dallas’ lead. Expect other players to follow Antetokounmpo and Blake Griffin.
This is peer pressure working very nicely.
