According to ESPN reports, Pistons general manager Troy Weaver said that team forward Blake Griffin will continue to be absent until the team and its agent reach a solution on their future plans. The Pistons will continue to seek to trade Griffin and negotiate buyout contracts with their brokers.
Turned out to give Lifen, jumped into the sky and dunk king.
Eleven years ago, Griffin’s appearance was like a shock, opening a clear sky crack in the gradually low slam dunk field. The fans once again truly felt the shock of basketball dropping from the air in actual combat. The ancient madness is finally passed on. The power in the memory is heavy, and the expectation is more in the surprise; the elegant and smart like thunder, and the nostalgia is more moved.
After Carter, there is no buckling general, this sentence fans have always been used to indulging in boring waiting. It was Griffin who brought new excitement in the fans’ slam dunk desire.
It’s just that these still can’t resist the restrictions of natural laws on the body.
Deals or buyouts, all kinds of plans that are close to the end of his career have to be implemented on the 31-year-old 6-time All-Star. This is not for him or his fans, but he can only accept it silently. .
Griffin’s most recent contract is still 170 million in 5 years! Such a falling speed is comparable to a free fall, which is incompatible with the strong surprise at the beginning of his debut.
In the first few seasons, fans seemed to see a historical power forward rising.
On November 20, 2010, in the Clippers game against the Knicks, Blake Griffin scored 44 points, 15 rebounds and 7 assists, setting a career high in points and assists. Griffin’s 44 points also broke teammate Eric Gordon’s 41-point rookie scoring record set two seasons ago.

Griffin also became the third player after Rick Barry and Michael Jordan to score “47+14” at the age of 21.
Griffin was selected as the All-Star in the 2011 All-Star and rookie season, becoming the first player to participate in the All-Star Game in the rookie season since Yao Ming in 2003. And won the dunk contest championship. That slam dunk from Feiyue Auto has become a classic in the dunk contest.
The dazzling rookie season has given Griffin the titles of “Griffin” and “White Monster”. In the following years, the Clippers built an “air-connected city” around Griffin and became the league’s most gorgeous team.
However, no matter how hot and dazzling the light, it is difficult to resist the invasion of darkness, and Griffin’s night comes so fast.
Too many actual dunks caused Griffin’s body to have frequent problems. Griffin was aware of this problem very early, and began to polish other aspects of his skills early in his career and was quite effective.
In the first few years, Griffin’s glory is still there.
On April 29, 2015, the Clippers played against the Spurs at home. Blake Griffin scored 30 points, 14 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals, becoming the first player in the Clippers history to get such data in the playoffs in the past 30 years.

However, as Griffin continued to create his own glory, injuries gradually caught up. As the age increases, Griffin’s technique becomes more delicate, but his body can’t move even these techniques that don’t consume much of the body. The Pistons are likely to be Griffin’s real last stop.
In fact, since the rookie season, the injury has never left Griffin.
In the 2009-10 season warm-up match, his left kneecap was broken and was reimbursed for the entire season.
In 2012 London Olympic training camp, left knee meniscus laceration injury.
In the 2014 playoffs, his back suffered a stress fracture.
In the 2014-15 season, his right elbow was infected with Staphylococcus, and he missed 15 games in the regular season and missed the All-Star Game.
In the 2015-16 season, the quadriceps strain was a truce for a month. After recovering from injury, he was ready to come back and he fought with team staff and broke his hand. At the end of the regular season, he returned to the team and played four games in the playoffs. Strains, reimbursement for the season ahead of schedule, and no participation in the Rio Olympics.
In the 2016-17 season, he suffered an arthroscopy of his right knee and a sprained right toe. He missed 21 games in the regular season and was reimbursed early in the playoffs.
In the 2017-18 season, he suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament of his left knee and a bone contusion of his right ankle. He missed 24 games in the regular season.
In the 2019-20 season, his left knee underwent surgery twice and only played 18 games throughout the season.
The ill-fated fate gloomy Griffin’s basketball career, feeling helplessly as his sluggish state gasps, the former dunk king seems to have become an old man who has difficulty getting up.
This season, Griffin is in the lowest fan season of his career, averaging 12.2 points and shooting only 32.5%. For the Pistons and himself, trading and buyout should be a good result.
With only a bruised body and a five-year contract of 170 million yuan, the transaction is almost impossible to complete. But what can we do if we buy out? Which team would be interested in this dwindling power forward?
