Blake Griffin signed with the Boston Celtics this past summer in hopes of finally winning that ever-elusive NBA championship.
So far, things are trending in the right direction on that front. His squad is 20-5 at the moment and boasts the best record in the whole league.
Griffin has had a minimal impact on the Celtics’ fortunes up to this point, but he is fresh off a 13-point showing against the Toronto Raptors on Dec. 5.
That said, so far Griffin has been in the headlines far more for his off-the-court exploits than his on-the-court ones.
Case in point: his alleged baby mama drama with adult movie actress Lana Rhoades.
Although Rhoades has yet to publicly identify which NBA play fathered her child, fans couldn’t help but connect the dots based on how the baby looks.
The whole situation came to a head recently when an NBA fan decided to troll Griffin at a recent Celtics game:

“That baby’s gonna be quite the basketball player since he’s got Blake’s leaping and Lana’s ball handling,” one fan wrote.
“Nah that’s too much,” another chimed in.
Griffin has obviously had an interesting last few years in the NBA.
At one point he was an All-Star and franchise cornerstone, but injuries and time caught up with him.
Based on where Griffin is in his career and how much time he likely has left in the NBA, it is hard not to feel like this is probably his last hurrah as far as winning a title.
The Raiders deserve a playoff spot on the strength of Mark Davis’ game alone. https://t.co/d7fdMLsban

If it doesn’t happen this year with this Celtics team, it probably never will.
Will Griffin be able to ride off into the sunset with a ring in 2023?
Time will tell.
