Griffin will be better. Amare is probaly a bit better now.

Amare is the better offensive player, Blake is the better rebounder. Both are pretty bad defenders. Thats how I see it.

How are people saying Griffin for now?
Theyre both beasts and obviously if your looking long term with their ages your taking Griffin without hesitation, but right now, Amare no question.

Griffin is already better than Amare, not even looking at their ages.

Just because Griffin doesn't get many blocks doesn't mean he's a bad defender. He works hard to get into position and draws a ton of charges. He plays passing lanes, and opposing PFs haven't gone off for huge games on him. Lately he's been blocking a bunch of shots too. I actually think Blake is going to be a very good defender in the long run, although he tends to stand straight up and gives up too many easy layups around the rim now.

Yer, i totally said that.:rolleyes:

He isn't a good post defender. Watching him challenge a shot is laughable sometimes. Has Bad Rotating Defense. Thats My opinion.

There is definitely room for improvement on defense.

Amare is by far the better player right now.
but I really think that Blake Griffin can be the best power forward in the NBA, possibly in the next two years. The man plays with a lot of intensity and energy dives for loose balls and plays extremely hard. He reminds me a lot of Charles Barkley back in his day when he was able to run the fast break. Not saying he's going to be Charles, but his game is very similar to him.

That's not your opinion bro as of right now that's a fact. He is not a great defender and their is certainly room for improvement in that aspect of his game.

Amare by far.

Blake's defense is beyond atrocious, even relative to Amare's.

But if it was the question of who you'd take for the future, even within the next 2-3 years, then no question it would be Griffin.

amare is better now offensively due to shooting ability. blake is a better rebounder which evens them out for me. in truth id take blake today even if its just a 1 year rental over amare

For the Bulls I'd take Griffin based on his age.
