top 5 greatest of all time power forward, the question is can he become a top 5 power forward of all time.

CF86 stated in a thread that BG has the potential to be a top 5 power forward of all time.

I was curious as to whether that opinion was shared by anybody else outside of a hardcore clipper fan who is obviusly a little biased,

I was expecting nearly everyone to say "hell, no".

Do you really think he can be better than Duncan, Malone, Barkley, Mchale, etc?
He can dunk and jump really high but that's it, don't be fooled by the media. He's average on offense, subpar on defense, good rebounder though.

once again this is not my personal opinion, CF86 posted this and i was wanting to know if this is an opinion shared by others or just clippers fans.

i clearly stated in the OP that i think he has amazing potential but that i haven't seen enough to make the claim that he has potential to be a top 5 PF of all time.

i stated in a thread that i thought a J smith & Al Horford for BG trade would benefit the Clippers, and while debating this with CF86 he said that Griffin had potential to be a top 5 power forward ever.

so i'm trying to see if anybody else shares that opinion outside of clippers fans.

Why can't BG turn into a LeGreekGodBron with his similar amazing athleticism?

I think he has the physical tools to where that is possible...yes

don't bother reading the "omg hell no" posts...it's so early in Blake's career...his prime years are yet to come

In order to be top-5 he is going to have to win an MVP or two and at least one ring

it's certainly possible...he just has to keep improving

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?

It's a long shot but Blake has improved in the areas that he had troubles with last season like defense, shooting and self confidence. Early this season, he had a hard time being decisive, once he caught the ball, he'd take too long to figure out what to do with the ball but now he's more in rhythm. He's gotten better but that should be an attribute he should put some work on. He does have the potential to be that "jack of all trades" big man.
