Griffin joins 5-time All-Star and All-NBA power forward Chris Webber and Hall of Famers Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Elgin Baylor, Oscar Robertson and Larry Bird as the only players to average 21 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists through 500 career games.

Only Griffin and Abdul-Jabbar achieved those numbers while also shooting 50 percent from the field.

Throughout his eight-year career Griffin has also accomplished many other achievements, including being named 2010-11 Rookie of the Year, and receiving five All-Star and four All-NBA nods.

Congratulations Blake!
