Strong points

Elite physical attributes, your body is ready to face the professional level.

I’m one of the best pitchers College In 22/2021; Griffin’s brilliant run on three pointers (about 45%) is simply deadly. Grab and shoot Efficient pitcher after dribble (highlight for this. step back), Developed during the season as the creator of the pitch itself.

He doesn’t need a ball in his hand to be effective (he’s good at cutting towards the basket, he knows how to stand on the court to be in good shape for a shot). He was Duke’s third / fourth offensive option, he barely got the ball, but he was still an effective scorer. Anyway, Griffin is well aware of his role in the court.

Is. In court, he needs to learn the basics, not lose in exchange, he needs to put more emphasis on the court.

Despite his tremendous use, he has a tough shooting mechanics, he needs to improve this aspect to become a reliable dynamic shooter in the NBA.

Need to be more aggressive (on both sides of the court); Put a little pressure on the rim and go very low towards the free-throw line (1.4 per game), as it was primarily used as a medium-range and long-range shooter, not the first step after the draw. ۔
