It's hard to say a solid no for any player's potential. But really I don't see it at all. Unless he suddenly improves EVERY aspect of his game (besides dunking and rebounding) then he's a long way off. There's probably close to 5 guys in the league at the moment who were higher on the GOAT list in their primes then Blake every will be.

what implies that i'm 8 years old when i say that i'm not sure if he can reach the level of guys like Tim duncan & KG?

maybe you read it to fast and thought i was saying "i do" instead of "do i"

maybe you should slow down, comprehend what you read before you start hurling insults and face palms..

Default Re: Does Blake Griffin have GOAT potential?

Sure. But he has improve in a few areas. I thought Chris Webber had more potential than Blake Griffin in terms being GOAT PF. He was a better passer, better shooter, could post up, pretty good mid-range game. KG in his prime was on a sucky team also.

There were/are other PFs that had better starts and better than Griffin is right now in his 3rd year. Griffin is still young and raw, so that could change. But I don't know. A lot of players have potential. I think he can become better than he actually is right now, but he has to keep on improving and we'll see where he'll be.

Anybody who thinks Blake has GOAT potential must think Adam Morrison still has a chance in the NBA.

NO....if u look at all the GOAT candidates their main attribute was fundamentals....ala Kobe, athletically he's declined but he has no huge weakness, due to being fundamentally sound(Old ass Duncan too)...Griffin is learning fundamentals at 20+ years of age, so the answer is no. Once his athleticism drops so will he ala Vince Carter

Ammo had GOAT potential but too much winning made him comfy and didn't care anymore.

to answer the question though, I think Griffin will retire as one of the top-30 to ever play the game

somewhere in there
