    Griffin had a amazing rookie campaign, but didn't do much to improve by year 2. Tim Duncan also had a great rookie year, and was a better player in both year 1, and 2.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I will say, I do worry about Griffin's relentless attacking of the rim. He gets up so high, I can just see him getting undercut and hurt badly. I hope to god I am wrong, but that style leads to some freak injuries.

    Blake Griffin can only dunk. But also, he can only flop.

    1) No post moves (Can't go to him late in games)
    2) Bad free throw shooter (Really can't go to him late in games)
    3) Average defense at best
    4) Playing with the best Point Guard in the world does help a little

    I guess stats aren't factual when rattled off?

    Griffin is good but his flopping and whining has turned people sour on him. He literally just throws his body into people, flops, and hopes for a call.

    He is very athletically gifted and i hope he can work on his game and shows us another level in his game.

    Sig bet with FriedTofuz or whatever his name is (I'm on my phone so it's too tedious to go find his exact name) that if the Nets lose to the Raptors I will delete my account and if the Raptors lose he will delete his (lol Raptors fans are so cute).

    Even if it was true that all Blake could do was dunk I would simply say... SO WHAT?!
    If those dunks are averaging him 20 ppg and they are working more power to him.
    If all Blake does is dunk then how come he isnt being stopped when all of the other teams would obviously know what his game plan is? He is doing something right and I give him a lot of credit.

    I hope that once Greg Monroe moves over to PF this year where he is supposed to be that he will be giving Blake and K Love a run for their money... but there is way too much hate on a guy who is obviously talented.

    I can sort of under stand the annoyance tho, since the league is trying to push him as some unstoppable force. (in that dunk contest he jumped over the car hood and they acted like he jumped over the luggage rack on a damn SUV)

    No matter what, people are going to hate when someone has attention on them and that's kind of a shame. I hated Lebron for a long time, but being a basketball fan Im a lot less heated and judgmental now-a-days. I just want to see these guys play the game and enjoy it for what it is.

    To be fair, he didn't have him his rookie year.

    What a meandering rant. I can't believe I read the whole thing.

    If you are going to put the time into putting together a long opening post defending a player against the traditional arguments against him, things like grammar, structure and rational (instead of emotional) counter arguments are welcomed by the masses.
