Another Free Agent Rumor.............Blake Griffin interested in joining the Celtics

Post by red16russ11 on Wed Jun 14, 2017 1:47 pm

After spending a year with "The Truth," and seeing his sendoff, Blake is said to be interested in joining us next year. Pierce spoke highly of the city, and the Clips are apparently a little worried. Per hoopshype :
On a podcast published Wednesday, Wojnarowski broke down the Clippers’ complicated situation, which includes the free agency of three starters, Griffin, Chris Paul and J.J. Redick. While doing so, the great reporter suggested the Celtics have a realistic chance to pry Griffin away. “Blake Griffin, and I think the Clippers may think this too, and certainly some other teams, Boston is really the danger for Blake Griffin,” Wojnarowski said. “I think Boston’s two primary free-agent targets right now are Gordon Hayward and Blake Griffin. Now they’re not going to get both of them, but they’re both players who would potentially have interest there, and who Boston I think looks at in different ways with their future. – via Booth Newspapers


More:
“So the one thing to know about Blake Griffin, he was (in Boston) when Paul Pierce came in with the Clippers for his last game in Boston, Blake was obviously there with the team. He saw how Boston reacted to Paul Pierce and what it means to have been a great player in Boston. Now, Blake doesn’t have enough left in his career to be beloved and be the all-time Celtic that Paul Pierce was, but it does give you a sense – and I know it gave Blake a sense, it did not go unnoticed with him – about how that building and that city and the way they loved Paul. And I’m sure Paul being around the last couple years with him, I’m sure they discussed it. – via Booth Newspapers

He would be H U G E........

Hi,
Sure he can be a great addition.... as long as he can play at least 40-50 games in regular season AND playoffs.

Since missing his entire rookie year with injury, Blake Griffin has played in 471 of a possible 574 games (7 years times 82 games), or, roughly 82% of the Clippers games.

he would be what we need (except for rim protection) but what worries me is in the last three years he's played in 67,35,61 games.

I would want serious once over by the docs first.
