Boston big man alum Aron Baynes highlights with NBL’s Brisbane Bullets

Former Boston Celtics big man Aron Baynes has been getting back at it in Australia and New Zealand’s National Basketball League (NBL – not to be confused with the NBA predecessor league) after a scary injury in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics left Baynes partially paralyzed, requiring a lengthy rehab he only recently just emerged from.

Noticeably more svelte and mobile, Baynes looks like he’s still got it in a clip circulated by the NBL showing the former Boston bog man getting into it for Australia’s Brisbane Bullets in a recent tilt against the New Zealand Breakers.

Baynes looked positively ecstatic to be back on the court, battling under the basket throwing up hook shots, and hitting 3-pointers with perhaps even greater fluidity than before his injury.

The Celtis center alumnus has an out in his NBL deal to return to the NBA if a team wants to sign him, and it would not surprise us to see All of Australia playing ball back in the US this season based on what we’re seeing here.
