Jonas Jerebko (BOS) “Swedish Larry Bird” nike

(Mark L. Baer/USA TODAY Sports)


BOS Forward: 6’10, 231 lbs; 8th year, Sweden 

NBA Role: versatile forward 

The ‘Swedish Larry Bird’ (& one of Hans Gruber’s henchmen from Die Hard), Jonas Jerebko is known for the three S’s: (his) sleeve, shooting & slashing; a hybrid 3/4, Brad Stevens uses Jonas as an interchangeable forwardin the lineup; good rebounder at either forward position, uses his 6’10 stature to climb the ladder and snag boards; highly confident: near 40% 3pt. shooter who takes a barrage of heat-check jumpers when he’s feeling it – sounds ridiculous but Jerebko should shoot more treys, try to cross over into specialist territory; needs to become a more effective screener; productive when given enough PT – sometimes tough to find a role for; BOS has plenty of options up front but Jerebko takes advantage of his minutes when called upon
