The Clippers made this t-shirt comparing Blake Griffin to "Pioneers."

Martin Luther King Jr., Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela…and Blake Griffin? Well, that’s rather interesting company, but that’s the category the Los Angeles Clippers appear to put Griffin in, at least as evidenced by a t-shirt their employees wore:

Including some about him punching the assistant equipment manager:

And even some jokes about Chris Paul leaving:

Griffin did sign a new deal with the Clippers for five years and $173 million. It’s debatable how much of a pioneer that makes him, but at least it stopped this shirt from being even more awkward than if he’d gone somewhere else. Or winding up worn by underprivileged children overseas.
