You can tell the guy is focused on basketball and developing his skills.
Have you seen him shoot and handle the basketball??
Its pretty damn impressive for a 20 year old.

I guess will have to wait and see though


Um a healthy Amare is one of the top 10-15 players in the NBA.Do U remember not to long ago when he was dominating an all time great in Tim Duncan in the Playoffs ? Don't get me wrong Griffen has potential but for Him to be easily better would mean he would have to be one of the top 5-10 players in the league and I don't see that happening any time soon.

Dude they dont even play the same position. How is Griffin supposed to defend Lebron when Griffin plays PF/C?

If Griffin is really 6'10 and 255lb he should be a 16-18ppg and 7-9rpg as a rookie. He can overpower most PF. His work ethics is just what any coach want. I'll compare him to Boozer, obviously more athlete but needs more work on that jumper. He also reminds me of a PF version of Howard with better handles.

But he looks like 6'7-6'8". I always thought Roy Hibbert was 7'2" because he towered over the NCAA Players last year, but he was measured at 7'0.5" in the 2008 NBA Pre Draft Camp.
