been watching for about 5 minutes and Griffin already has two huge dunks - one an ally oop - and a quick cut to the basket. His knee looks 100% but it might not even be...that scary
Blake Griffin is better than Lamarcus Aldridge RIGHT now. All he needs to do is stay healthy. He's more active in the first part of this game than Aldridge has been in his entire career.
Lol Blake Griffin hella explosive
I turned to the game and as soon as I hit the channel and I mean the absolute first play I got to see Blakes first basket. This guy is gonna be something else if he stays healthy. Like a super explosive super active Carlos Boozer.
Lamarcus Aldridge has not looked like himself this season.
his post moves are ugly right now, it seems like they keep getting worse, and worse.
People need to throw the Kenyon Martin comparisons away in regard to Griffin.
Martin NEVER had feet and hands like this. He never got to the ball this quickly. You can just see that Griffin is going to be a very good offensive player.
B Griffin will win it. Kid just got that fire in him.
He is going to kill PF this year...
I've just finished watching the first quarter and Griffin now has 3 hightlight reel plays and 9 points and 5 rebounds overall. The only reason they are losing at the end of this quarter is because they've given away some easy 3-pointers and have missed some easy 3-pointer.
And because Gordon picked up two quicked fouls. Took away some of their offensive punch.
I LOVE the activity the Clippers are playing with. Love it.
First time I'v watched Griffen play, only one quarter in and he's now one of my favorite players. On another note, its sorta sad to see Griffen playing, and right at the end of the bench you have Oden. Not playing as usual
I can't believe I'm actually going to have FUN at Clippers games this year!!! Since switching coasts they have been my loveable loser underdogs to root for instead of the LA Kobes. Griffin looks great. I can't speak for you guys, but I forgot not just how explosive he is but how quick he is as well. Ooh! And he just stroked a J from 17 as I'm typing!
I'm not gonna go over board after less than a half of a game but Blake griffin........wow. His second jump is so damn quick. Reminds me of Shawn kemp. But kemp wasn't this good this early
Is it just me, or is DeAndre Jordan really trying? It seems as if Griffin's energy is making Jordan want to play hard as well.
Is it ok to jump on the Blake Griffin bandwagon? What an athletic freak.
That De Jordan block was nasty too. He just about beat the air out of the ball with that blocked shot.
I would say, jump on the bandwagon right NOW. LOL
And De-J is really blocking everything that's getting near him.. If this keeps up.. Griffin/Jordan for the future will be NASTY.
Griffin's energy is rubbing off on the whole entire team.
I keep forgetting how good of a shooter B-roy is when he's healthy.
VERY good from the mid-range.
Blake Griffin looks outstanding athletically...He moves like a wing and has a crazy amount of leaping skills. I'm impressed with him.
He's not as athletic as LeBron, but he's not that far back.
B-Roy on pace to hit 328 buzzer beaters this year. (Assuming no OTs)
Gordon picking up those two quick fouls really hurt the Clippers because he wasn't able to defend Roy. He defends Roy very well and held Roy to a couple of his worst games last season.
The hype came down and now the true Clippers are showing.
As everyone else mentioned Griffin is an absolute BEAST!!! and i mean Kaman spin with the one hand jam was pretty awesome too!!! IMO
Clippers big are looking very good this game. Offensively. Because they are really getting outrebounded.
with 310 left in the 3rd blake griffen has been goin off all game.. hes not only a phisical athletic freak with post skills he can also get out on the break, handle the ball, and drop dimes. there is nothing he cant do on the court, but what is really impressing me is his perimeter skills.. he can handle the ball and shoot. what do you think about a lebron james comparrison? dont kill me i know its his first game im just saying he is a dominating phisical presence but can handle the ball pass and hes pretty damn fast.. you heard it here first hes the closest thing to lebron.
I've never seen someone as athletic as Griffin with that motor.
Gordon went off in the third, after that tech.
I think the Blazers will win this game though. The Clippers don't have a finisher.
I wouldn't be too sure about that. Blazers usually lose to Clippers when they play against them on the road.
dtay just compared Griffin to LeBron..... wow.. smh kid..
haha dont know what smh means but watch him a tell me who he reminds you of. he can handle shoot drive and pass hes not limited to the post.
smh= smell my hiney
You see what I mean? Look at the Clippers' last few possessions... They have no closer. This is the usual for them. They give games away in the 4th quarter. Bad shots. Turnovers. Missed assisgnments on D. This is what they do.
griffin looks pissed every time he doesnt get it. I kinda like it becasue it shows his self confidence. But he has to be careful that he doesnt get under his teammates skin too much making faces everytime they make a mistake.
Josh Smith? Younger Antonio McDyess? Not LeBron..
He should be pissed. Kaman threw the game away and they've missed him for like three easy baskets.
Not to mention... He put in A LOT of energy this game lol. He isn't trying to lose.
they went to kaman and kaman didnt deliver. BUt some of those were strong shots that didnt drop and no one else was acting like they wanted the ball other then griffin. Making gestures and dropping his head and raising his hands after each time his teammates miss a shot isnt gonna endear a rookie to his teammates. Im not making a big deal out of it, just pointing somehting out.
Clippers are more exciting but seems like the same ole clippers. Defense was soso.
Lost at home to a team playing the second of back to backs
Like the people calling the game said., they have zero help at sf
Even with Blake and Eric playing well they still lose by double figures or close
Kaman missed shots but so did lamarcus so that evens out
They need to start Butler at small forward. Gomes sucks.
I think there are a lot of positives to take from this game though. The Clippers are going to be improved this season. Maybe they can finish .500.
Maybe they can trade Kaman and bring in a small forward and start De-J (DeAndre Jordan)
Jordan isn't ready. He couldn't even beat out Collins for backup minutes tonight.
Jordan had 9 minutes
Collins had 6.
And in those 9, he had 4pts, 3rbs, 3blks
For some reason though... Collins got the call in the second half and Jordan didn't. And it wasn't due to injury because Del Negro put Jordan in during the final seconds.
I think Jordan should have played more, he brought some energy along with Griffin. and very good athleticism.
I'd be wayyyyyy suprised to see them at 500 they aren't that good. Maybe 35 wins max
hes already a better ball handler and passer than josh smith
Yeah, but Jordan isn't a starter who has basically no offense. I like him as a an energy guy and his stats for 9min are impressive, but they just drafted an SF at the 8th position. I would start Butler to spread the floor and bring Aminu and Jordan as energy guys of the bench until Aminu is ready to start.
Dtay, there is NO way Blake Griffin is LeBron James. C'mon kid..
He's not as fast or athletic as LBJ, The dude was completely worn out by the 4th quarter. He can't dribble with his left hand as you may see in many highlights, he doesn't have that court vision that LeBron has although he showed pretty good court vision.
Blake Griffin is good, but I compare him to Amar'e Stoudemire with Gerald Wallace motor.
I'm tired of people saying Jordan aint ready
How isn't he? And how do you know this do you see him in practice?
Jordan played ten minutes and had 3 blocks and went one for one and more importantly looks like the natural compliment to Blake. Jordan, Gordon, Blake, B Diddy, and Aminu and is a hell of a lot of athleticism comin at ya.
Kamen for Iggy let's start the rumors again its a great trade for both teams.
Iggy inserted between Blake and Gordon is a match made in heaven he will compliment these two developing superstars perfectly.
And yes let's not give Blake all the hype because Eric Gordon is on his way to becoming a superstar also. He is one of the most athletic guards in the league and also one of the best shooting guards. Thats a very rare combination and he had a few monster plays himself.
