Ok, so there is no doubt Griffin is super talented and a freak athlete, but that’s kind of my point. I’m sure there are guys more deserving to be at 5, but when I watched Griffin play he just left a lot to be desired.
Blake is probably the most athletic post player in the game and ranked 20th in the NBA in rebounds last season. 20th!
How does Tristan Thompson average more rebounds per game?
I think if Griffin would be more physical and crash the boards harder he could lead the NBA in rebounding. There’s no excuse for a guy with his ability not be in the top 10 every season.
Also, he has fallen in love with his jump shot.
Clipper fans are hoping with the arrival of Doc Rivers there will be more focus placed on developing Blake’s low post game.
