NBA.Antetokounmpo, Curry, Lillard, All-Star stars
There is no more attractive team in the NBA today.
Few more ambitious projects are remembered in NBA history.
All the spotlights are on Brooklyn, on the men in black who raise expectations and what if they were already starting to work and win despite the fact that their trio of stars could barely coincide on the track yet -
Kevin Durant has been out for a few weeks due to injury
- Now they add another big name of their own in a great market move: Blake Griffin, more wood.
It became official this Monday post All Star what was already an open secret since at the end of last week it became known that the power forward exercised the 'buyout' option of his contract with the Pistons,
giving up more than 13 million dollars
to leave Detroit in search of a new horizon in the NBA.
He will play until the end of the season for the Nets alongside
Kyrie Irving, James Harden and Kevin Durant
He will partner in the paint with DeAndre Jordan, with whom he already dominated on the Clippers.
Under Steve Nash.
On the team that won nine of the last 10 games to rub shoulders in the Eastern Heights with the Sixers and Bucks.
Which also challenges the Los Angeles franchises that rule the West alongside the surprising Jazz.
Who scores more than anyone, above 120 points per night.
That is a reality in the bid for the ring.
Although it would be crazy to speak of a 'Big Four', because in reality, Griffin no longer looks so much like the player who landed
12 years ago in the Clippers with number one in the 'draft'
(even if he missed his first season in Los Angeles). due to a serious knee injury), ahead of Stephen Curry or James Harden himself.
That powerful physicist who swept rivals out of sheer power, who left karat highlights with his thunderous dunks, who averaged more than 20 points and 10 rebounds per night without much fanfare, had been a player lately in the Pistons. the drift, clearly marked by the accumulation of injuries that was for him a nightmare.
This season he was averaging
12.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.9 assists
, with a game record quite different from the old one.
Because Blake Griffin stopped doing dunks.
Injuries have reinvented him, being a guy further from the rim, than if in his first six seasons he tried 155 triples, only in the 20 games he accumulated in the present were 124 (by 98 of two).
And he was not even able to make a dunk (in his first four seasons he did 784).
Still, the arrival of Griffin, who is still 31 years old, is another boost to the Nets' project.
"We are fortunate to be able to add a player of Blake's caliber at this point in the season," said
, General Manager of the Nets.
"He is a versatile player in attack, with a long history of success in our league, and we are excited about the impact he will have on us both on and off the court."
