He's nowhere near prime Chuck yet.. but he's also just in his 3rd year. He's very skilled despite what people say. He's a top notch passer and ballhandler at his position similar to how Chuck was. He's already as good of a defender as Chuck ever was too.
The skillset to eventually be comparable to Chuck in his prime is there.
Watch this first play. Tell me who it reminds you of Round Mound.
The Dude Is Similar to Barkley in Terms of Ballhandling and Coast to Coast Power Dunks. He Is Not the Mid Range Shooter, Post Scorer, 1 on 1 Off the Dribble Scorer or In Small Space Scorer, Rebounder, and Passer Charles Was. Also, Barkley Was a Pretty Good Help Defense and Chase Down Shot Blocker. I`ve Seen Barkley Block Hakeem, Shaq and Other Centers Dunk Straight Up With No Steps Taken. Charles Is Much Stronger than Griffin but Its True, Griffin Sure Will Develop Into One of the Most Athletic Powerforwards Ever, If Not Now Itself. I Don`t Understand Why People Say He is The New Karl Malone Because His Game Resembles More to Charles
