Using the new global rating metric developed by Alberto De Roa of HoopsHype, veteran Boston Celtics big man Blake Griffin has been deemed the ninth-best active NBA player born in 1989. The metric devised by the HoopsHype basketball analyst, per De Roa, “combines players’ and teams’ statistics to rank players according to their productivity on the court.”
The recent HoopsHype analysis pegs Griffin behind (in order) DeMar DeRozan, Jimmy Butler, James Harden, Bojan Bogdanovic, Marcus Morris, Dewayne Dedmon, Justin Holiday and Serge Ibaka.
