In hos rookie year most said yes to this. Now he's a better player and it's hell no? It's not a prediction on my end, just a statement that he has that type of potential. Duncan, Malone and Barkley will be very hard to catch but KG, Dirk and Mchale are far from out of reach. These kinds of threads just fire me up because I can't wait to say told you so.

I'm not sure what you've fixed about my sentence. If anything, you've made it incorrect.

Let's talk about the PF's before those guys. The ones that he needs to pass first before he's in that conversation.

PS - Would have to pass Bob Pettit, Elvin Hayes, and Dolph Schayes all-time too. All relative to era.

Does he have the potential? Maybe. Do I think he'll get there? Don't see it happening.

Do you think with Blake's skillset, athleticism and fast start to his career that those guys are ANYWHERE near out of reach? 20/10/3+ career player plus a couple rings, maybe a finals MVP and 15 all star appearances and people will believe it.

No one said this during his rookie season. Dunking and flopping doesn't make you a goat.

This is a goat

GOAT POTENTIAL

Nobody has ever said Blake has GOAT potential so nobody is overrating him. It's simply the OP wanting to bash Griffin more so he makes an intentionally stupid and misleading thread title to fuel trolls. Blake has top 5 PF all time POTENTIAL and anybody who disagrees doesn't know basketball, plain and simple. Will he hit it? Maybe not. Is his skillset, production, start to career and upside good enough? Hell yes.

Blake is already about to be a 3 time all star and career 20/10/3 player in the first 3 seasons of his career. No other modern PF outside of Duncan can boast that. Bottom line is OP intentionally baited you guys in here under a false notion and it worked because people fell for the stupid thread and blasted Griffin.

Doesnt change the fact that he is overrated.
He is considered top 2 pf in the league by many .

Default Re: Does Blake Griffin have GOAT potential?

The way he played in his rookie season sure shows GOAT potential, unfortunately he has been declining season after season. Its almost incomprehensible, but guess thats what it is. His first season had something like 22/12, then it became 20/10, this season it was barely 18/9. If the trend continues, it wont take him more than 3 seasons to become a complete mediocre player. If I were Clippers FO I'm going to trade him while he still has value, it is like a falling stock that you better get rid of earlier than later.


But seriously, can you name another player who has been declining since his rookie season? Evans maybe?

In December Blake is putting up 22 ppg, 10 rpg, 4 apg and 2.5 spg to go with a block and elite efficiency. Not many games but he's finally healthy and doing all of this damage in 30 minutes a game due to blowout wins lately. Bottom line is Blake two weeks ago was arguably not a top 5 PF, let alone 2 but currently is playing like the best PF in the NBA.

Even if he's only a top 4-5 PF this year... we have to remember PF is easily the 2nd most loaded position in the NBA after PG so nothing to be ashamed of. Dude is a 20/10/3 career player at only 23 so with as much as people criticize him he's not overrated. Maybe overhyped early in his career but that's not his fault.

Retard confirmed. Can you name any other young star that suddenly had a top 5 player and 20 ppg player added to his team along with loads of other pieces in one offseason? Blake was a more complete/better player in every year of his career. Raw numbers don't tell the story because the Clippers have gotten SIGNIFICANTLY better talent in his second and third season.

Scoring maybe, but it does not explain the decline in his rpg especially when Jordan was pretty much averaging the same rpg as he did in Griffin's rookie season(clearly not because of Jordan stealing his rebounds). Also incase you havent noticed, Griffin's FT% was also his career best in his rookie season. So ppg, rpg and FT% all declined since his rookie season, it is just because he suddenly had better teammates? Let's face it dude, Griffin is done, its time to ship him out before he becomes 14/6 player in his 5-6th year. When that time comes, you know there's no team interested in taking his contract any longer.
