Blake Griffin is current in the midst of an NBA playoff run with the Boston Celtics.
He isn’t actually playing, as he was a DNP Coach’s Decision in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, but he is on the roster nevertheless.
This week Griffin found himself trending not for anything he did on the court, but for the ongoing drama surrounding who Lana Rhoades’ NBA baby daddy is.
You will recall, based on photo evidence, many fans have linked Griffin to Rhoades’ most recent child. Although neither party has confirmed that he is the father, many have assumed that to be the case nevertheless.
On Wednesday night that changed.
Specifically, an Instagram Story featuring Denver Nuggets star Bruce Brown Jr. is what swayed public sentiment.
Bruce Brown is her baby’s dad and whole time we thought it was Blake that’s wild https://t.co/GqjdtJcLfx

That wasn’t the only proof NBA sleuths found.
Now, to be clear – there is zero confirmed evidence that Rhoades’ child is even with an NBA player. That is just conjecture and speculation based on stuff she has put out and how the kid looks.
Even Kevin Durant was floated as Rhoades possible baby daddy, and nobody thinks that is the case anymore.
But that isn’t stopping NBA Twitter from running wild.
In the midst of a wild NBA playoff run that has seen a referee blatantly rooting against a team midgame, a cheerleader’s provocative personal photos go viral and this week’s Malika Andrews dust-up, this most recent situation feels like par for the course.
The photos speak for themselves. https://t.co/31P9r9SGjV

It’s almost too fitting of a story for the times we live in.
Will the truth about whether Griffin or someone else is Rhaodes’ baby daddy ever come out? Time will tell.
