It's gonna be interesting to see him play against some of the big boys in the NBA that will size up better with him than some of the college kids he plays against.

well he gets a lot of superstar calls in college like over the back fouls and things. can't wait till he gets the rookie treatment

talent level was better last year,hsave to remember that.if guys like rose,beasley,love,mayo,calmers,ect. stayed in,no one would be calling him dominant

and even if you are,doesnt mean you'll always translate well(marus fizer)

No he is saying that now that all of them have left Griffin is the most dominate player. But if they would have stayed he wouldnt be being called dominant because the attention goes out to those guys.

Well, he's not 6'10. All you have to do is look at the guy and you can see that. He can list himself at whatever height he wants, but 6'10 is probably 2 inches too much.

Best case: Carlos Boozer

Worst case: Marcus Fizer

I think he'll be decent, but probably not live up to the hype since he's a tad undersized and he'll need to develop a jumpshot to be a real threat. If he can continue to rebound like he has in college (unlikely) then he'll always be somewhat valuable.

To me his body kinda resembles LeBron James a little.

I don't know how good of an NBA player he will be but if he is half the player he is in college he will be a beast.

Kenyon Martin.
No real go-to post moves.
Overpowers everyone
Not a true 6'10, more like 6'9, 6'8 1/2
He can be an OK player, just not a star. He might be lucky enough to be an All-Star one day, but he's not gonna be someone you build a team around. Just an OK player, definitely not number 1 pick status.

This draft sucks. IMO the top team should trade down a couple spots depending on who that team is.

how can you make a statement like that?

best case: a better Charles Barkley

worst case: injured bust
