Blake Griffin signed with the Boston Celtics a few weeks back and made his preseason debut on Friday. Although he was out of rhythm, there were also some promising signs as he sought to solidify his role as a judge in 2022-23.

In his post-game interview, Griffin spoke about the maturity and concentration of this Celtics team and threw some shade towards his former teammate, the Brooklyn Nets, while praising his new teammates.

“I think the intensity and maturity level of this group is off the charts,” Blake Griffin said. “Every day when we get to work it’s intense. It’s not that we’re going forever but these guys are locked in and no one has to tell us to be locked in. It’s refreshing.”

Speaking of the Brooklyn Nets are a +100 to go under 50.5 wins, according to Oddseeker. There was a report by the NY Daily News that Steve Nash was booed over the weekend during a Nets practice at a part.

“it sounded like 70 percent” of the fans at the park booed Nash.”

“Ultimately, I believe the booing is coming out of a place of love,” said Calliste. “The fans want the team to succeed, and while many fans may disagree about if Nash is ultimately holding the team back, the consensus among the fan base is that he definitely isn’t elevating the (team) either.”

Shane Calliste is the social media coordinator at this Sunday’s Practice in the Park.
