    Blake has a superb work ethic, he just needs a Patrick Ewing type coach to help his progression into superstardom.

    He needs to stop sticking his arm out when he goes for a highlight dunk though. He doesn't get called for an offensive foul and gets away with it. It happens frequently.

    count me as a blake griffin doubter. he's too wild and aggressive, and gets far too emotional in-game

    Are we going to dog him for being the type of player he is? Is it a bad thing that he is extremely athletic and takes advantage of those abilities? No.

    It takes time to reach greatness, Michael Jordan didn't always have a pure jumper til about his 4th year in the league.

    Karl Malone shot 48% from the free throw line in his rookie year, years later he became a great FT shooter and one of the best shooting big man in the league.One thing that can't be taught is work ethic, and that's something Blake definitely has. Mark my words, Blake will go down as one of the greatest Power Forwards to ever play right along side Tim Duncan, all he needs is a ring and i believe he will deliver that in a couple of years.

    i'm not sayin he'll be a scrub but when i watch him play i dont feel like he has the "it factor" to be an all-time great. again, based solely on my watching, and i didnt watch every clips game this year. but he doesnt play like an up and coming great player imo. he just seems like a great dunker / athlete

    Again, this only his second year.

    People expect Griffin to start getting 2 blocks a game, 15 boards and having a Go-To move that is impossible to stop. He's been playing pro ball for 2 years, he's made 2 All-Star teams. He's done more than plenty so far.

    Name some players who put up 22-12 in their first year, or even 5th year, who are not considered superstar status. It's hard.

    I think Blake Griffin somehow benefited from not playing the season after he got injured.

    Too bad Griffin was the second most efficient PF in the NBA last season.

    I'm shocked by the Spurs and can't believe they didn't bring more in the 1st half. If KD and Harden get untracked in the 2nd half, it's ballgame.

    TP and Manu have to pick it up and create for themselves and the Spurs 3-point shooters.

    It's way too early to be calling Griffin the next Karl Malone. lol And I agree with what others have said about him acting like a whiny baby. He seems to complain more than just about any player. And I don't see the Clippers being one of the best teams in the future. I still don't know know how they got past the more talented Grizzlies.
