Question Is the best of Blake Griffin already behind?

What do you say Clippers fans?

Does this guy look like his game will evolve/improve?
Does he have the work ethic to go beyond his pure talent?
Is the best Blake Griffin already a thing of the past?

He needs to spend less time peddling Kias and more time working on his jumper and defense.

I dont know if you guys watch tv or not, but blake griffin has a time traveling Kia. He could go back in time and kill jordan, chamberlain, Bird, and every other player that has ever or will be better than him. Unanimous GOAT imminent

I still think rookie Blake was the best Blake. That season he had the most relentless motor in the league (by far) and I was actually excited when he got the ball in the post. Where did his over-caffeinated energy go? His motor + his athleticism was too much too handle. Now he puts up off-balance T-Rex-armed baby hooks and bricks 15 foot jumpers. It's like if Cindy Crawford had become a telephone operator.

to answer the OP's question: I hope not, but I fear so.
But if I were a betting man, I'd bet that Blake will peak when his athleticism has declined around 10-15% but his game is more evolved.

As long as hes injury free no its not the best of him his stats might go down or not be as good but his impact will eventually be. I think people look at stats to much rather than impact. I'm not a fan at all of his but his best years should still be ahead.
