After the Los Angeles Clippers and Detroit Pistons pulled off a blockbuster trade on Monday, Blake Griffin, is the topic of the day. As per usual when a superstar is traded, the news has consumed the sports universe, prompting the inevitable debate: Who won the trade?
With Griffin all over the news, Lolo Jones threw in her two cents on the newest Pistons big man. SportsCenter posted news of the trade on its Instagram account, and Jones commented, jokingly asking if it was April Fool's Day. She then responded to a comment and said she once went on a date with Griffin. It doesn't sound like it went well.
"Worst date of my life and he's a terrible kisser," Jones wrote.

Jones is a multisport Olympic athlete—a hurdler and bobsledder—and she's one of the few athletes who has competed in both the Summer and Winter Olympic Games. She was a part of the U.S. bobsled team that finished 11th in 2014 at Sochi. Jones was a controversial selection for that squad.
She did not qualify for the team for the 2018 Games, which will commence in Pyeongchang on Feb. 9 (a week from Friday).
Griffin, who re-signed with Los Angeles this past offseason, was seemingly led to believe he could play for the Clippers for his entire career. The Clippers, who parted ways with Chris Paul in the summer, may also elect to move DeAndre Jordan and Lou Williams before the trade deadline.
