Default Blake Griffin - Second Best Player in LA?

What a joke. The dude hasn't even played one NBA game and this editor is claiming that he's the second best player in LA?

He has talent but it sucks that he's on the Clippers..

I will preface by saying I'm an OU Alumni and happened to see Blake Griffin for the 2 years he was here and there's no questioning this guys talent.

I will admit that we haven't seen what he can do, or if he can do it consistently against many of the leagues top forwards. But judging by some preseason performances I think it's safe to say he can hold his own.

If he stays healthy, i think you will be eating your words

Pau, Lamar, Kaman, all good players no doubt but none of them are guys you build a team around. Griffin just might be..

^^ I agree. I don't see this as one of those out on a limb type of statements. For those that say no way who is second then? Sick put up his list, Pau is the only one I would consider because of his position as a center but I would take Griffin over Kaman and Lamar in a second. If you're building a team today you take him over all 3 of those guys easily.

I don't think anyone is dismissing his skills but we have this conversation every year with who 'might' be the next greatest thing.

There's no rush, we'll see just how good he can be soon enough. This is still the Clippers we are talking about and they are like the LaBrea Tar Pits when it comes to wasting talent.

I think saying he's already better than Pau is a bit premature. I was glad to see Mikeloc made the list of best players in LA.

This is all about saying someone is the second best in LA when this someone hasn't even played a single regular season game. No doubt he has talent, but he needs to prove it in the NBA.
