BLAKE GRIFFIN PUTS BOSTON ON MT. RUSHMORE OF NBA CITIES



By DJ Bean June 19, 2017 11:37 AM



Impending free agent Blake Griffin, a recurring guest on Barstool Sports’ “Pardon My Take,” joined Monday’s episode for the show’s Mt. Rushmore segment, perhaps revealing mutual interest between he and the Celtics in the process.

Used to mock the downtime of the sports season that takes place between the end of the NBA and NHL playoffs and the beginning of football season, the Mt. Rushmore segment sees the hosts list their top four of anything, from “bald people” to “power moves” to, ahead of last year’s home run derby, “things chicks dig.”

With Griffin, the Mt. Rushmore focused on NBA cities, as hosts Dan Katz and PFT Commenter regularly try to pry information about Griffin’s future from him. Boston was one of Griffin’s four.

“This has nothing to do with you being a free agent,” Katz said. “We’re just world travelers ourselves.”

Griffin listed New York -- which he called his “favorite city to visit” and praised for Madison Square Garden’s atmosphere -- Phoenix and Toronto as his other three cities. Boston was the fourth city he named.

“Is that all of you, or is that just half of you that thinks Boston is a great NBA city?” PFT Commenter followed up. Griffin is biracial, born to a black father and white mother.

“I guess it depends on who you talk to. Definitely half of me. I mean, half of me loves it,” Griffin responded. “The other half, it’s hit-and-miss. Depends on who I run into. Depends on what story I read about people being heckled at a Red Sox game.”

Adrian Wojnarowski said last week that the Celtics are considered a favorite to sign Griffin in free agency. The 2009 first overall pick has spent his entire career with the Clippers.

MY NOTE:  On a tangential note, Stephen A(sshole) Smith is saying that the Fultz trade was a step towards trading for Jimmy Butler AND after that we'd sign Gordon Hayward.  Not very clear on the value of roster balance, is he?

I hope we all realize how good this guy is. NOT a consolation prize at all. Still think Hayward is #1, but Blake is #2, IMO. And he would help us right away

If the Celtics are actually going to spend big dough I would take Griffin over Hayward because it addresses our need for a big.  Hayward is not going to be a big time scorer for us.  he may be that way with Utah but not on Boston.  We already have a player that is a high volume shooter.  Let me back up a bit.   Hayward is not a big time scorer (elite level) he is however a really solid offensive player and would fit perfectly in the Celtics system.  But is that who we need?

Butler just does not move the needle for us.  Hayward is very good offensively but again he really does not move the needle.

Interesting he is ranked # 4 and Paul George is # 5 in the Bleacher report SF power rankings.  Guess what Hayward is not better than George.  

A little know fact that is never discussed.

Butler is rated #3 as SF, Hayward is #4  and our own Jae Crowder is # 8

Anyways now that the Fultz blimp has crashed we are looking at SF and or SF/PF.  in the draft.

Whatever.  Hayward would be pretty dumb to take short money to sign with a team that does not need him.  Utah is just as viable as Boston.

Danny spend the time upgrading the positions on an as needs basis.

With the probable departure of Amir, Zeller and possibly Kelly, and only replacements in view are Zizic and Yabusele, we need a power forward. Actually, more than one, but let's at least focus on getting at least one.

If he comes on the reasonable cheap....perhaps but he is on the "other" side of his career now.

Who cares what draft he was taken in his legs are about 40 years old now. To many games lost to injury, BUT if we can get him at a reasonable price i'm OK with it

Both George and Butler are 27.

Since missing his entire rookie year with injury, Blake Griffin has played in 82% of his teams regular season games

He's going to want a max from us, or he'll stay in LA.

yeah , why do Celtic fans think players will play here on the cheap?

Blake is a top NBA player, he will get paid.

Blake Griffin can choose not to opt out of his contract this summer.

Celts can get him via trade.

why would he?

all these rumors sure sounds like Pierce has been in Blake's ear for a while now. Gotta love our past players talking up our team!

I still could see Danny getting into the P. George to Cleveland deal and picking up Love, at that point Blake isn't needed. He can then go after Hayward with a max deal, since both Love and Hayward are players Danny is supposed to like.

of course back to this thread BLake and Butler (trade) makes us contenders also.

gonna be interesting.
