Man...he is worthy of going in the top 5 rounds but i doubt he goes that fast...

Great shooting percentage, scoring, rebounding...only negatives so far are the turnovers and ft %...

Tonight Blake had 24 and 14 against Denver. 7-13 from the field, and nice to see he was 10-12 from the free throw line.

The Nuggets won 100-95.

good luck. i doubt he starts going past rounds 3 or 4. might as well grab him early, his production will be worth it. i just wish i had drafted already.

and i swear the only time blake doesn't hit the floor is when he's shooting free throws. hopefully his body holds up.

Default Blake Griffin is the best rookie since Lebron

Per Bill Simmons.
Here are some pro Griffin tweets
Quote:
Love that people are doubting my Blake Griffin pimping. Wait until you see him. Best rookie since LeBron. Even Durant wasn't this far along.
Quote:
BTW: I thought Griffin was going to be a very good pro. I never expected... this. He's blossomed into a beast. I'm telling you. Just wait.

Here is an article with a lot of good Blake pub as well.

Quote:
Call me a sucker, call me a fool. I don't care. Griffin cannot be hyped enough. He's already one of the best five power forwards in the league. (I have him behind Dirk, Bosh, Gasol and tied with an aging Duncan.) He would have been the third-best player on Team USA in August had they included him. He's already (A) the best finisher of any big guy in the league, (B) the second-best rebounder in the league behind Dwight Howard, and (C) someone who flies around so recklessly that you constantly worry he might break his leg, his back, his neck there's just nobody else like him right now. You can't keep your eyes off him.

Thanks for the Blake updates Sam! I try to watch as much as I can on NBATV, but he plays so late out there in LA, that I haven't seen nearly enough. Have watched the box scores, highlights, and probably the equivalent of one entire game of actual preseason game play. He looks very good. I keep going back to what you wrote the other day - hall of fame.

I can definitely see that. He's further along than Karl Malone was. Further than Dirk was; and as we all know, his work ethic is not going to be an issue. I'm so excited to see him put that franchise on his shoulders and carry it to somewhere north of where it's ever been, that I can hardly wait for the regular season to begin so we can get a taste.

He's Charles Barkley straight out of Auburn with an added 5 inches of length. Wow!

24 points and 14 boards last night.

Here is an article from the LA times.

Blake Griffin has a smashing return to Staples Center court
The Clippers forward has 24 points and 14 rebounds in his first game at the arena since a knee injury last year cost him the season.

By Lisa Dillman

11:05 PM PDT, October 14, 2010

He hardly needed something like a remember-me moment.

(Not with his ubiquitous smiling presence in the L.A. marketplace and on national TV in sandwich ads.)

The Clippers' Blake Griffin may not have been playing in the NBA all those months, but he never really went too far away. Still, reintroduction to local fans seemed almost required, considering it was nearly a year since he played his last game at Staples Center.

Done and done.

It came in the first fast-breaking 20 seconds: Baron Davis to Eric Gordon to Griffin, finishing with a tidy dunk Thursday night.

That was merely the appetizer in a dazzling and steady stream of Griffin dunks, sprinkled throughout the night in amazingly creative ways.

The Nuggets held off the Clippers, 100-95, in their preseason game but the buzz was all about Griffin above the rim and crashing to the floor. If there was ever a thought Griffin would hold back after missing all of last season because of a knee injury, well, that was quickly erased.

His new nickname sorry for the lack of creativity might have to be Crash. Griffin had 24 points, 14 rebounds and four blocked shots.

"He likes the hardwood a lot," said teammate DeAndre Jordan. "It's a love-hate relationship between those two."

The one for TNT where he is trying to get on the RV and they keep moving and laughing at him. The Phoenix Suns Gorilla is driving and not paying attention. At the end he runs into a telephone pole. Classic!

Blake did not play tonight due to a (gulp) ankle injury, but it appears to be very minor.

Willie Warren got his first playing time of the pre-season tonight, going 0-2 from the field with a steal in 6 minutes.

Was watching the NBA Roundtable last night on ESPN, one guy said Blake was bringing something the NBA that the league hadn't seen in a while, a complete PF.

He's not complete yet. He still plays matador defense. He is much like Amare in the way he plays, though hopefully he will continue to get better on the defensive end.

I was just repeating what they said last night. I think "pundits" are more blown away by what they are seeing on the highlight reels than taking a look at his total game. Either way, I love it...would be nice to have a guy with OU ties be one of the top players in the league.
