Blake Griffin apparently thinks very highly of Boston.
The Los Angeles Clippers star recently appeared on the “Pardon My Take” podcast, during which he discussed his “Mount Rushmore” of NBA cities. Griffin, who is a free agent this offseason, included Boston on his list, which admittedly was rather unconvential thanks to his creativity.
“I wanted to stay away from going, like, New York, Miami, Chicago, L.A.,” Griffin said, per MassLive.com. “Because those are big, fun cities to be in. It’s like I wanted to give a little character to my Mount Rushmore. It’s like Phoenix is like the Teddy Roosevelt.”
It’s unclear whether the Celtics intend to pursue Griffin in free agency or if the 28-year-old would seriously consider donning green next season, but it’s certainly something to think about as the C’s, who are coming off a trip to the Eastern Conference finals, perhaps look to make an offseason splash.
