With Chris Paul I expected him to have at least 24 a game. But instead he is scoring 1 less than last season and a less rebound


Aside from that perk dunk ofcourse

I think he's doing fine. Kid is pretty special. He's still improving too.

They also added many more scorers, is he getting less shots?

I personally feel he had a better rookie season (thus far) but he is still having a very good season nonetheless.

He's definitely better this season, playing less minutes is why his numbers look worse on a basic stat sheet... May have something to do with CP3 coming to town, but we can't know for sure.

He is what he is.. Explosive leaper. That is all.

He's having a better year statistically his TS% has been .549 the last two years. But he's been more efficient 508 efg% last year 532 this year. His Usg% is .1 higher as well. He's playing with a fantastic PG right now and if he continues to work on his jumper he's going to be something special. That team still needs a sg in my opinion.

He's going to keep getting better, but he has been over-hyped by ESPN just like everything else. Once he develops that jumper and becomes a better defender he'll be just fine.

Same.
This is only his 2nd season playing afterall, he'll be fine

Well 3 things.

1) He can't shoot free throws to save his life. He throws away alot of points at the line. If he hit his FT's he would be around 27 a game.

2) His 2nd season so teams have adjusted to him

3)He wont be a top-5 scorer no matter how good his PG is until he develops a reliable shot. His shot isn't broken but it's not consistent at all.

I dont want to read any of this and I usually don't say on this site but no he is not under achieving he is just the most overrated player in the game. What he is showing you is what you get. A HELL of a dunker, poor poor shooter and alright rebounder and defender. Overall decent PF

Yeah if he could shoot free throws he would be a top 5 scorer

I don't think he has gotten better or worse. He is basically the exact same player from last year, outside a couple tweaks in each direction.

I don't think it's him.. The clipper as a whole is a better team.. More scoring options, Deandre Jordan becoming a good rebounder, Chris Paul creating plays for everyone.. Just a better team overall

It's amazing how many people criticize Blake Griffin when it's obvious they haven't watched him play extensively.

Not everyone, but most

When putting up over 20 and 10, helping your team to one of the best records in the west, and humiliating people on almost a nightly basis is underachieving you are pretty good.......

If I was the Clippers,I would offer Griffin/Jordan for Dwight/Anderson.

Trade 2 super athletic guys who can jump out the gym for one older super athletic guy that can jump out the gym? No bueno........

He's no underachieving if you had the right expectations for him. He's a very good player, but he's not a super star, at least not yet, and he's not close to a top 10 player, despite what ESPN wants us to think.

It's his second season playing...so he's still got a lot to learn.
