    I thought that last year, in the playoffs, blake turned a corner. He is not the same guy you could punk out in the past. The dude is straight clowning on the nba.

    And no joke: I'd take him over Lebron, KD, Westbrook, Harden, and whoever you want to put up there.

    The clippers have a chance to win the title this year because blake is a beast.

    What about Rudy Gay, though? Aren't you taking him over anyone else?

    He has shown to be on Durant's level though, hasn't he? I thought the world saw that

    Yeah, but is he better than Conley?

    He's great but I still take LeBron, Curry, Harden, Durant and Cliff over him

    He's a top 10 player for sure. Bron, KD, Curry, Harden, Westbrook and maybe AD better tho.

    I'd take Ricky Rubio over him because in due time Ricky Rubio will show to be in the same level as those that were selected in that draft - Harden, Blake and Curry

    He is a very very good player, I give you that much.. I don't know about taking him over LeBron or Curry though. He would be absolutely beautiful next to harden pick and rolling to the rim.. Arguably a much better fit for our team than Durant.. Think about it, he sets screens and hits long jumpers better than anyone in our team.

    I don't know why the long two has fallen out of favour. It was such a huge part of the old pick and roll/pop.. I know, analytics blablabla but in the crunch sometimes you really need that shot. Everybody guards the three (except Charles Barkley and Chandler 'worst feeling in the world' Parsons. And the drive, well you saw what happened when the clippers trapped harden twice at the end of regulation...

    His shot has gotten very good and he has always been pretty good at handling the ball. If he could acquire the james harden get to the FT line skill he might belong in the top 5.

    Clippers used to be the warriors for us. It took us a while to figure em out once we did, it became pretty simple to beat them

    I'd like to see Blake with a nice wing or 2 instead of a ball dominant pg like CP3.

    Totally agree with OP. However Terrence Jones is probably much better than everyone named above, including Griffin.

    He's a stud but I still worry about his injury history and Jordan cleans up the glass and protects the paint for him. Big men cant leave Jordan to double Griffin because there's an open lob waiting to happen. Jordan makes Griffin look significantly better on both ends, much more so than Paul.

    4th quarter Blake is much different than normal Blake....

    The rest of the league should hope he never figures this out.

    Lawson
    Brewer
    Ariza
    Blake Griffin
    Howard

    vs

    Chris Paul
    Harden
    Lance Stephenson
    Josh Smith
    DeAndre Jordan

    Who wins? It's a pretty stupid question of me to ask. So, how is it that Griffin is so dominant?
