yes, he can...nickname "human flyswatter". he can make sure people don't get easy hoops inside and he's a good rebounder and great blocker. Not to mention what he could put up on offense if he applied himself...what a moron he is for wasting his talent. I hope he can redeem himself this year, but it looks bad.

Man, he could be the center we need if he works hard. His man to man D is awful but he can get some boards and block shots.

On offense he could be a monster but he chucks too much!! What kind of center shoots under 40% from the field.

On the Wolves website they were talking about Griffin working out a lot and working on his game. It's nice to hear that he is applying himself. If we want to go anywhere, we need somebody to step up. Seems like everybody we get starts to play below their potential when we get them.

I wish the Wolves staff was as good at finding talent and developing as the Minnesota Twins' staff is. The Twins staff makes you feel like they could bring everybody up from the minor leagues on their roster and still have a shot.

In NBA 07 I replaced Blount with Griffin as my starting center. I would like to see this happen in real life also.
