I really doubt that. He's like 6'8 or something (regardless of what he's listed as) and his arms aren't very long.

Edit: Just checked, and he was measured as 6'7 in pre draft workouts. Don't know if in shoes or barefoot.

Agree. He will only be at his peak if he takes defense seriously. I don't want him to become the next Amare, Melo or Durant where he's very one dimensional. I think he has the potential to be more of a PF version of Lebron do everything type if he works hard on his game.

Blake's wingspan is a bit over 6'11 which is shorter by NBA big standards but Wallace was only 6'7.. so I doubt he had a much bigger wingspan.

I'm sure Ben Wallace's standing reach is higher than Blake Griffin's.
