With effort, Blake should become a consistent shot blocker

Blake Griffin and Kris Humphries have a similar build. Humph averages a block a game, there's no reason Blake can't.

I'll make this quick.

Blake Denies Humph

Not a whole lot of difference. Griff is a little taller while Humph has a little longer reach. Their verts are about the same surprisingly (or maybe not too surprisingly). I know blocks are not everything and where you are on the floor is much more important but at least if Blake makes a block once a game, guards may become more hesistant to shoot layups right in front of his face.

Just for comparison to a really good shot blocker, here is Josh Smith's

Am I being too optimistic? I'm sure Blake can at least be as good as KH, right?

Right?
