Good for him.

Not a max player but certainly has all the potential in the world.

Just dunking on people won't get him far. He needs a better post game and work on his mid-range.

If Blake got a decent mid-range shot, immagine him and Paul on the pick and roll. Just deadly.

Easily a max player, look at the league people. Production, work ethic, marketability, potential for improvement, thats easily a max player. If hes not max then who is?

This.

People need to stop looking at max as only the best players. Fact is the best of the best (i.e. Lebron, Durant, Dwight) are underpaid.

Really shows the lack of ingenuity from the haters, they are essentially saying hes not worth Z-Bo/Rudy Gay money LMFAO. Hell even Hibbert might get a max deal, which for him might be a million or 2 below Blake.

His production isn't a max player (yet) but he certainly has great potential and he is one of the most marketable players in the NBA. So in the end he is a max player.

Not a max player.

Right, because he hasn't averaged 20/10 for his career and been a 2 time allstar and isn't still improving

Nice one

Guess they shouldn't have give you durant or Rose a max deal either

Overrated & A Flopper, Good for him though he needs to call up Hakeem Olajuwon to learn some post moves and play better on D.

If Griffin stays out of injury and continues to improve he will be a Top 5 player in the next 3-4 years. Definetly worth the max.

Not a griz fan Spurs fan lol, But he is overrated. He is a solid but cmon he does a dunk or alley and block a few shots you have people all over his nuts. He does need to work on his defense and post moves your blind if you don't think so.

i remember seeing your name from somewhere. figured it was from the grizzly series. oops.

anyways, no one is saying he is the best player in the league, but you're dumb if you dont see he is a max player. besides his ridiculous career average of 22 and 12 in just two years in the league, he is also very marketable, puts butts in the seats (home and away), and has a high ceiling.

even cheap *** sterling knows its an easy decision.

Didn't say he wasn't, The Clippers will be crazy as hell to not sign him to a max contract he puts people in the seats as you say and he put the clippers back on the map and has HUGE poetinal. But I'm not that big of a fan as everyone else is of him he is solid but not as great as people want to believe he is YET. Having CP3 is going to do wonders for his NBA career and if he gets better in the post, on D and get a nice mid range shot then your looking at a scary team also with the right players.

I love how people think so highly of players like Aldridge who's dropped 21.8ppg and 8.3 rpg over the past two years yet Blake gets so much hate for his game alone when he drops 21.7 and 11.5 over the past two years. If you think all he can do is dunk then you only watched sportscenter. He improved inside this year a ton. Granted he can absolutely improve sooo much more....the results are there. 22 points is 22 points. Until teams can stop that then he should be looked at for what he contributes.

He hustles like no other "superstar" player. He has a great work ethic according to coaches and teammates. He can rebound well. He is willing to sacrifice his body for his team. He is also learning a couple inside moves.

Spurs stopped him:eyebrow: and he is overrated Aldridge is more skilled then him, Yeah he got somewhat better but he still needs to work on his post moves and get a nice mid range shot going *as you can see teams leave him wide open* work on his ft's and defense.

He still avg 21ppg 8rpg 2bpg and 1.3 steals vs SA. Granted he didnt play amazing, but not as bad as people seem to think.

He is overrated? So he is not a top 5 pf in the nba? Aldridge can be more skilled, Griffin puts forth more results. Making it even more impressive is that since he "only does one thing." Yet he still drops 21 a game. If he's so one dimensional....he should be getting shut down game in and game out.

He does have a lot to work on....but the hate is just sad. All because he dunks on people's favorite players and gives them a look? Because he tries to give his team an edge by "flopping?" Or is it because most fans see him on sportscenter and highlight watch?

06-30-2012, 09:31 PM
There are probably 5-10 max players in the league Blake is far and away better than. He is as true of a max player as you get. #1 pick, ROY, all-star every year and now the 2nd best player on a playoff team. Would the Clippers be better off letting him go because haters on the internet think he's only $13 million and not $15? Yea it's probably better to just blow the whole thing up :rolleyes:

Yeah pretty much because he is shoved down your throat all the time and he's a flopper and I'll take Gasol, Love, Bosh, Duncan, KG, Aldridge & Dirk over him. I mean it's not hate he just can do better. He's gonna get there but I'll say he is over hyped.

Under 85 mill unless he wins MVP this year and awarded the Derrick Rose rule contract bonus. So no he's not overpaid. He's been in the all star game his first two years and has top 5 PF all time potential. He's started 82 games last two seasons as well.

Agreed, which is why it makes no sense to say Blake isnt worthy of his extension when inferior players are making more than him without providing all he provides to his franchise.

Way too much money for a player who can't hit a shot 5 feet from the rim, isn't a good rebounder, defender, or passer. Sure he's likely to develop a decent jumper but that's just not what he's worth now.

Cause LMA is better. (Blake will probably be better within two seasons). But if the clips had Aldridge they would have at least won a game against SA.

If he is so much better, why can't he outproduce a one demensional player who has no skill except dunking?

I love LA, but im just using him as a example. He is way better in the eyes of PSD yet avg 8 rebs and only the same offensive output. Yes he has better range and better post moves...but 21 points is 21 points.

But he does outproduce him, its just not by a really significant margin. He's also a better defender.


I love LA, but im just using him as a example. He is way better in the eyes of PSD yet avg 8 rebs and only the same offensive output.

Probably due to being vastly more skilled, even though I'm biased towards skilled players in gerneral, skill doesn't = production which is very similiar between Aldridge and Blake.


Yes he has better range and better post moves...but 21 points is 21 points.

Its not so much how much points you put up, but HOW you put up your points. (Not saying it explicitly applies in this case, just for future reference).

Btw I'm a Blake fan, just felt like pointing that out :)
