Best of Boston Celtics big man signee Blake Griffin in 2021-22




 

Fans of the Boston Celtics should be forgiven if they have become unfamiliar with how the newest member of their favorite team plays the game these days, with Blake Griffin a far cry from the high-flying dunker that he made a name for himself in the NBA as being.

But the former Brooklyn Nets big man has excellent passing chops and the veteran skills to fit into the style of play the Celtics play well, even if his defensive chops are exploitable in postseason play. The Oklahoma product still has something to give his new team even if highlight reel dunks won't often be among them.

To get an idea of how you might see Griffin playing for Boston this season, YouTube Celtics fan videographer Tomasz Kordylewski put together a compilation of some of his best plays with the Nets in 2021-22.

Take a look at the clip embedded above if you need a refresher on how the Oklahoma City native might play for Boston this season.
