So, Griffin is a better dunker and looks great flying at the rim with the assist from teamates. No argument there.
Aldridge has played 18 games in the clutch (last 5 minutes within 5 points) this season and Griffin has played 14. Here's a look at thier +/- of their PER36 compaired to in the clutch:
Clearly an argument could be made either way about "best" power forward. They are both amazing power forwards. I just thought is was hillarious how emphatic Barkely and Smith stating in unequivical terms with no reasoning to back it, that Griffin was the best power forward in the league. Whereas Kerr's handling of their response was simply fantastic. It reinforced for me why Steve Kerr is one of the few commentators on TNT that I respect for their take on the game.
Do you agree with Kerr, and if not, why?
Kerr the man and like you he is the few commentators that I respect, I think Kenny & Barkley were blinded by the 17 game winning streak the Clips went on there's no question that Griffin has improved a little this year but, he can't touch LA offensively LA uses skill and smarts to be effective while Griffin just uses his athleticism I also believe LA is a better defender than Blake as well and if I were a coach LA would definitely be the most difficult to prepare for. Of course there's always the old question if Griffin and LA switch team would we be 20-16 right now with Griffin?
I appriciate that. I just am blown away that there is even a debate over their basketball skill. The Clippers are so stacked with tallent. If being a better jumper makes you the best Power Forward in the NBA... I guess it's Griffin. I saw an arguement that Griffin was on Jimmy Kimmel the other night. Well, to be fair, Kimmel does shoot his show in LA, and Griffin was on the show with none other than Chris Paul.And some argue that there's no way the Clippers would trade Blake for LA. I think that is a poor question. Your question of, what would their records be if they switched teams, or even what would their stats look like if they did, is a better question.
Kerr is the best commentator in the NBA..there's a reason he was picked to be a GM at one point. I was really glad to hear him praise LaMarcus even though guys like Barkley probably couldn't name the Blazers starting lineup if they tried.
Charles... /sigh It's funny 'cause it's true.
such a joke, I hope for a better world where people don't overidolize the flash.. Shoud not even be considered a fair argument.
