You must not understand that a lot of people would feel like Griffin would be overrated and a product of CP3 if he played with him. I am not saying that is true but a lot of people would think that. The same crap happened with Amare when he played with Nash and the same crap happens today when discussing about Karl Malone since he played with John Stockton.

Duncan is by far the best of that group and there is absolutely no way Blake Griffin will ever be as good as Duncan was. He has a shot at being on that next tier with Barkley, Dirk, Malone, & KG but that is going to take alot of work on his part.

You can't say that. Blake had a historical year as a rookie, and if he continues to get better it's well within the realm of possibility that he becomes at least as good as Duncan if not better.

What? So because he threw up like 22\12\4 in a rookie season in witch he won like 32 games it's in the realm of possibility to say he can become better than Tim Duncan?. Pretty absurd to me anyways. Duncan was a statistical force at times but obviously it went far beyond that, including winning on the big stage.

Personally don't think Griffin will end up better than Duncan. Duncan has an edge and don't think Blake will ever be able to overcome that. Blake simply can't anchor a defense in the way Duncan can. Think that goes undervalued and a big reason why Duncan is the GOAT PF. He's complete in every sense of the word. From his resume to his offense right down to his defensive abilities. A reason why I think many put him over Barkley, Malone etc. The same problem I'd see happening with Blake if he ever progressed far enough to get into the conversation.

Being on a GOAT means u have the team accolades, solo accolades, longevity being great, and numbers to back it up. I happen to think Barkley is the best PF of all time in terms of peak value. But Timmy is clearly the GOAT PF. Chuck has said that himself. Timmy could anchor a defense like a C. He combined the elements of a great PF with the elements of a great C. And Timmy had the versatility to even play some SF early in his career. During the 7 foot SF craze where KG, Dirk, and Sheed did it often, Timmy did it some as well during the Triple Tower lineup with Robinson at PF and Perdue at C.

But Blake could very well be the most freakish athlete ever at PF. It seems he is a mix of Kemp and Karl Malone. But he has to build the resume to be the GOAT PF. It's very hard to become the GOAT at any position. MJ, Bird, Magic, and Wilt or Kareem (whatever your preference is at center, hell Russell gets many votes as well too) have held those titles for 20 years and up. The PF is the one with the most fluctuation it seems. But Blake has to get the accolades to pass not only Tim, but also Barkley, Malone, KG, and Dirk. The top 5 GOAT PF's all have unique elements that make them icons. But Blake has the talent and work ethic to easily be a legend. The question is how far up will he go!

I don't see how CP3 would be seen as tainting Blake's legacy. On most title teams, u tend to have at least two Hall of Famers on the team to begin with. Or 1 HOFer and multiple All Stars around him. Even last year, u had Dirk and J Kidd. U had Kobe and a possible HOFer in Gasol. Of course u had Shaq and Kobe. MJ had Pip and Rodman. Duncan had Robinson, and all star guys in Parker and Ginobli. The Billups Pistons are the only team I can recall that doesn't have an HOF type guy, even though some say Billups has a shot. But still the Pistons had four All Stars type guys.

Don't see how one can become the GOAT in any position if someone else (who's currently a better player) joins the team. Duncan is GOAT PF even if Tony (can't pass the ball) Parker has been playing with him for 10 years. Good luck with Griffin surpassing Duncan - 4 rings, 2 MVPs, 3 FMVPs, 13 All-NBA teams and 13 All-Defensive teams.

Why are you acting like you are working for the NBA rumor mill. "My sources" You have no sources. You are just reading things that are posted on the internet. You have no involvement in the NBA rumors in any way possible. You are trying to act professional...
