BleacherReport on Blake

If you haven’t watched Blake Griffin play this season, do yourself a favor and immediately open up a new tab and watch his highlights.

Through only 29 career games, Griffin has established himself as one of the best forwards in the league and hands-down the most exciting player in basketball. Most people will note his unbelievable strength and athleticism, but there is so much more to Griffin than his physical gifts.

Blake Griffin has a good-looking release on his shot, despite the fact that he has struggled on free throws all season long. He has proven to be an above-average passer with a high basketball IQ, doling out 3.2 assists per game in his first season.

The top overall pick in 2009 is graceful, agile and has a passion for the game. Perhaps that’s why so few of us are shocked when Griffin dominates game in, game out.

On the year the 6’10” forward has delivered thunderous dunk after thunderous dunk en route to averages of 21 and 12. The fact that the Clippers are 8-21 is the main reason Griffin is not ranked higher.
