VIDEO: Greg Stiemsma’s Weekend Block Party

Jay April 16, 2012 Uncategorized 7 Comments

It didn't matter if you were aware of it or not, but you were all invited to Greg Stiemsma's weekend block party.  The "Stiemboat," as KG likes to call him, took his shot blocking talents on a three games-in-three-cities-in-three-nights road trip.  Toronto and New Jersey didn't quite feel his shot blocking prowess as much as Charlotte did last night.  Nonetheless, Stiemsma is proving to be an amazing story and an equally amazing find by Celtics GM Danny Ainge.

Sit back and enjoy Stiemsma's weekend block party including some monster blocks on Jordan Williams and Bismack Biyombo:

    It’s really amazing how far Steimsma has come. His learning curve suggests that he has the potential to be a quality NBA center.

    I just knew this video was coming and MRTRIPLEDOUBLE10 didn’t disappoint.
    A couple of quick observations; only 2 of those blocks were blocked out of bounds resulting in the other team retaining possession, and if you look closely on that turnover pass he had lost his balance and was falling backwards.

    Stiemsma is becoming a great shot-blocker.
    He is Sean Williams without the marijuana!

    Stiemsma is a great shot blocker and one huge factor that makes him great is the fact that he is not too over-powering with his blocks. He is not swinging his arm to try to send it to the balcony seats. He gets his hands in there and keeps the ball in play for the most part and the C’s come up with the ball most of the time. I am not comparing him to Bill Russell, but that was his strategy. Russell would get his hands up there, get just enough of the ball to make sure he or his teammates would come up with it. It is only a matter of time before Stiemsma records a double-double with blocked shots.

    It looks like he is waiting after the block for the whistle. I think that he’s a bit surprised that the refs aren’t calling the fouls. He needs to hustle to the other end. Otherwise great effort!
