I like Blake Griffin, I thinks he's more than a copy of another prospect. The guys that are good are more than the next _____ . But what do you say to the guy, congratulations you're the best prospect for the nba, now go play for Donald Sterling. If you read the deadspin piece Sterling's the worst of both character and organization. Someone like a Blake Griffin would want to work in a place like that?
Portland got the better half of the DKV Joventut dual of Ricky Rubio and Rudy Fernandez. Which I personally think Rudy Fernandez signing with the Portland Trailblazers will be remembered as a cautionary tale. Portland has allowed itself to be hit harder in the current recession and Paul Allen is having his own difficulties.
For some reason the nba prefers those that peak when they're young than the guy that gradually improves. I'm not that high on Ricky Rubio.
