Blake Griffin had nothing but good words to say about his teammate in the Detroit Pistons Derrick Rose.

Griffin and Rose have known each other since high school, with the All-Star forward calling Rose one of his “favorite teammates for sure”.

“He’s great, man. He’s an unbelievable teammate. Had a great season. I talked to him like a week ago. He’s doing good, man. He just does his thing. Works hard, known him for a long time and one of my favorite teammates for sure,” Griffin said of the Pistons guard, during his recent IG live interview with GQ.
