Yeah, that's true, but if you're picking teams, that's the last shit your want as you're trying to push your own brand.

Are you forgetting the absurdly intense end of last year's game? Granted that won't happen this year I figure, especially without Kyle Lowry there.

Not that it matters much on a minimum deal, but I doubt he has much more to offer even as a role player given how horrible he's been with what was already a reduced role.

Blake Griffin HOF yay or nay. Who knows what Basketball Reference's formula is but they have his probability at 54.8%.

The basketball HOF is all levels right, not just NBA? Have to imagine Blake gets in with his pro career plus Wooden/Naismith awards

Yeah it's all levels. I never know exactly how much that's actually taken into account in practice though. Blake was ridiculously good in college but I don't remember him being necessarily thought of as a can't miss #1 overall pick or anything.

You'd think something like that would help a guy like Webber too (timeout fuck up notwithstanding) but that hasn't happened.

Seeing this post made me realize that Blake is really his generations Chris Webber. Same position/similar skillsets, pretty much the exact same level of player with almost mirrored career arcs.

They're pretty damn similar right down to their team during their primes losing in the 2nd round (Webber did make one conference finals.)

Offhand I would say definite no for Griffin given his NBA career. Has he ever dominated the league or even led the league in anything? He'd be in my hall of really good though.

He was pretty dominant on those Lob City teams.

I just looked up some more stats. He never made all NBA 1st team, finished top 10 in MVP only 3 times (as high as 3rd), doesn't look like he ever led the league in any statistical category, and only has arguably 4 seasons (out of 12) where you could say he played a full season.

He was good on the Clips, that team was very good (offensively) but they never accomplished anything. He just has nothing in his pro career that stands out.

He never was 1st team All-NBA but was 3rd in MVP voting in 2014. He just happened to play forward at the same time as LeBron & KD.
