I expect him and Hansbro to have similar careers.

The only thing I worry about is he's injury prone. He can hurt his right shoulder/arm anytime he plays basketball as he dunks most of the time. :D But, he'll be a hella player along with Eric Gordon

He'll be what Amar'e is as of now, adding a mid-range game would really help him down the road.

I think both will be above average PFs, not top tier but solid starters.

Physically, they aren't as far apart as most people assume. Both are close in height, wingspan, standing reach, and max vert.

Hansbrough is much more polished, you going to see him play more fundamentally sound basketball: fewer turnovers, better shot selection, much better free throw shooter.

It's not a very popular opinion, but I believe the Pacers got better value at 13 than the Clippers got at 1.

I def agree with ChiSox as well. Hansbrough has that special thing in him that will sort of make him a great player that Mark Sanchez (NFL) has: grit, leadership, chip on his shoulder, and will come out day in and day out even if they are a sub .500 team (Pacers). He was expected to go int he 2nd round, but the Pacers knew what he possessed and what he will bring to the table right away as the Pacers will be in the playoff hunt this year as Granger and co develop this year.

I think Blake will be an impressive player early on but will battle injuries all his career and will have the Eltan brand effect...What if he stayed healthy ? We will question how great he could have been.

Yeah!
They have 25 mil a season for LeBron, but I hate him.
If he does come to the Clippers, there'd be tons of bandwagons.
AH

Top 5 player is just not in the cards, not until the retirement of guys like Lebron, Wade, Dwight, Paul, D-Will, the list goes on and on and even then he would have to oust guys like Durant, Roy, Gay, Rose, Lopez, this list goes on and on as well lol.

Top 5 PF is attainable IMO.

The Lopez hype is really starting to annoy me. Don't get me wrong, dudes good... but has he really done anything yet to merit being put up their with the other guys you mentioned? No...

He'll be really good player anyway it goes, he has good hops and is aggressive on both ends of the court. in a few yrs he could develop a good little J and could have a Karl Malone type game(very overpowering at the PF position)

I see a 20/10 guy in the near future in him

Blake Griffin has a lot of potential... the only thing that I feel will hold him back is if he experiences injuries throughout his career other than that he will be a PF of the future... because he alreadyn has that Tim Duncaness type bank shot

Please Don't start a Lopez debate we don't want to hear Illuminati999 highjack the thread with his claims that Brook Lopez will be better than DH12..........:laugh:...............
