How important was adding veteran big man Blake Griffin to the Boston Celtics?

How important was adding veteran big man Blake Griffin to the Boston Celtics? The Celtics have taken some pretty big, unexpected hits this off-season, one of the biggest among the several being sudden injuries to key frontcourt players.

Part of the reason the team likely brought on the former Brooklyn Nets big is to help the team weather those big man injuries, but is that the only reason Boston had in mind when they signed him to a one-year deal? Will the six-time All-Star provide some bulk in the frontcourt that the Celtics desperately need, or will his role with the team this season be more impactful in the locker room as an experienced, steadying voice?

Take a look at the clip embedded below to see what the hosts of the CLNS Media “A-List” podcast had to say about Griffin’s addition to the team on one of their most recent episodes.
