Player Spotlight: Blake Griffin 🎥 - Who averages the most touches in the NBA? It’s not James Harden, it’s Blake Griffin. - 2018-2019 (54 Games) Stats: 26.3 ppg, 8.1 rpg, 5.4 apg, 0.7 spg, 0.4 bpg Percentages: 47.9 FG%, 36.5 3PT%, 75.9 FT% - Coming out of Oklahoma Blake Griffin was seen as a freak of nature athlete & the consensus 1st overall pick in an absolutely LOADED 2009 Draft including names like James Harden, Steph Curry, DeMar DeRozan, Jrue Holiday, etc. - In his sophomore year at Oklahoma Griffin won National College Player of the Year honors leading the Sooners to a 30-6 record while averaging 22.7 ppg & 14.4 rpg on 65.4% shooting from the field. - Blake Griffin has transformed himself into one of the most unique players in the NBA. Outside shooting was originally considered an afterthought for the top pick, seen as his glaring weakness. Only 1.7% of his FGA came from beyond the 3PT line his rookie season, that number has skyrocketed up to 36.6% in 2018-2019. - In his first 7 seasons he hit 80 3-pointers on 29.9% shooting. He’s already sunk 134 3-pointers (36.5 3PT%) in 54 games this season on 6.8 3PA/game. The only players to hit that many 3’s this season at the height of 6’10” or above are Blake Griffin & Brook Lopez. - While known for his superb athleticism & dunking, BG has also been a phenomenal passer playing the point-forward position. His teams have made a valiant effort in order to run the ball through him, and it shows through his assist numbers: - Assists Per Game (APG) 2014-2015: 5.3 apg 2015-2016: 4.9 apg 2016-2017: 4.9 apg 2017-2018: 5.8 apg 2018-2019: 5.4 apg - While somewhat forgotten due to being traded to a smaller market, Blake Griffin is having the best year of his career: - vs. PHI (10/23): 50 pts, 14 reb, 6 ast @ PHI (11/3): 38 pts, 13 reb, 6 ast @ HOU (11/21): 37 pts, 11 reb, 4 ast @ LAC (1/12): 44 pts, 8 reb, 5 ast, 3 stl vs. SAC (1/19): 38 pts, 6 reb, 3 ast, 3 stl @ NOP (1/23): 37 pts, 9 reb, 7 ast - The #1 overall
The release adds another $6.25 million to our cap space for free agency. Was a move that had to be made. Expect the Lions to pursue another safety in free agency or the draft to pair with Walker and Diggs. Tavon Wilson is good but I think they will want an upgrade.
The Lions have released Glover Quin, Nicholas Grigsby, and Bruce Ellington. Maybe Quin isn’t retiring 👀. Regardless he won’t be in a Lions uniform next season. 😔 The move isn’t surprising but it is a sad one. I’m a little surprised that they released Ellington. Thought they would give him a shot in the offseason.

“On February 15, 1989 As the National Basketball Association (NBA) 🏀 trade deadline approaches, the Detroit Pistons, on their way to the first of two world championships, acquire Mark Aguirre of the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for small forward and top scorer Adrian Dantley. • Sources say Pistons captain Isiah Thomas demands the trade because of his friendship with Aguirre, a buddy since their childhood days in Chicago. • It is considered the biggest NBA trade of the season and one that will spark intense debate in barbershops, recreation center gyms and neighborhood bars for many years to come.” -Ken Coleman • 📚 On this day: African-American life in Detroit • #detroit#library#nonprofit#literacy#stem#blackhistorymonth#bhm#dplf#education#nba#markaguirre#pistons#championship
Andre Drummond is an elite paint defender, and rebounder, however his efficiency in the low post is below league average for a Center and he never passes the ball out of the post either, he will be demanding a max level contract from teams when he hits free agency and his main skill sets aren’t even what is valued anymore from max level players, even most recent coach of the year Dwane Casey has not been able to turn the fortunes around for the team, meaning the problem lays within the personnel, Drummond needs to go-Gino #andredrummond#detroit#pistons#dwanecasey#nba#basketball#sports#center#0#hottake
