Default Re: My Complete Draft Breakdown

el gringos - what the hell, Griffen is a PF, not a SF.

Is it just me, or does anyone else think Blake Griffen might be a little overrated.
He's one of the top prospects in this draft for sure, but from the few games I saw, a lot of his game is based on out-muscling his skinny opponents in college, which sure as hell won't happen in the NBA. Plus he's not even that tall.
People also talk about how he didn't get to show his defense cause Oklahoma couldn't risk fouls, but likewise, how do we know it WON'T be good using the same logic.
A lot of people seem to be hyping him up as the next great PF or something.
I see maybe a few All-Star appearances at best, but I don't think he'll ever be a 20/10 guy, maybe 18+/8 at best in my opinion.
Plus, "Hack-a-Blake" anyone?
