After a little over three seasons with the Detroit Pistons, six-time All-Star forward Blake Griffin and the team agreed to a buyout that allowed him to pursue a contender. Griffin eventually settled on signing with the Brooklyn Nets, although he hasn't suited up in a game for his new team yet.

On Saturday, his former team and current team squared off, and it created a bit of confusion for the big man.

After a dunk by his former teammate, Griffin reacted with a celebration in a monetary mental lapse. Then he looked up at the scoreboard to see which team actually scored, and realized he had rooted against his current team. It was only a brief moment, and his new teammates didn't seem to notice, but it's hilarious nonetheless.

Griffin averaged 12.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.9 assists over 20 games for the Pistons this season before sitting out once a potential move from the team was on the table.

He's working himself into game shape following the rest period, so his Nets debut is on hold for now, but his arrival will add another element to Brooklyn's offense as they hope to compete for a championship this season.
