What Could Have Been: THE BLAKE & BRON SHOW.
All-Star Weekend and what has turned into the Blake Griffin extravaganza, and honestly rightly so Blake Griffin absolulty deserves everything he is getting right now, but it reminded me of the summer of what could of been. While everybody was in New York probably still thinks about how awesome it would of been to team up Amare and Lebron, I always thougt from the beginning, that the most exciting scenario was Lebron to the Clippers for one reason. You got it Blake Griffin. While I was almost certain that Blake was going to take the league by storm and average 20 and 10 and turn every game into a dunkapalooza I didn't even think he would be this good this fast.
But know that we know he's this good, does anybody not think Lebron wouldn't love to play with him? And had maybe Blake not got hurt and did this last year, going into the off season the Clippers would of had a better shot at him.
B-Diddy, Air Gordon, Bron, Blake, & D.J is like 5 freak super athletes who just broke out of a cloning facility running a fastbreak at ya.
There is no doubt Lebron and Griffin would mesh and would be absolutely terrorizing creating plays game after game we have never saw before together.
Does anybody else wish if they had one mulligan it would be to somehow pair these two on one team for histories sake?
Yeah if LeBron went to the Clippers, they would be a playoff team right now. The reason why he didn't go was because like you said, NO ONE thought that Blake would be this good this fast. I even knew some people that thought he would be a bust. If Blake played last season and was doing the same kind of stuff that he is this season, I think LeBron would've really took a hard look at the Clippers. They're already the most exciting team in the league, but just imagine them with LeBron. DAMN!
Can't help but wonder what would have happened if Blake wasn't injured last year and put together this rookie campaign then. Perhaps Lebron may have been swayed then...
I know sitting out all last year actually helped him. He wouldn't of been shooting as high a percentage, and would of been commiting more turnovers. But other then a few less points and a few less rebounds I think Griffin would of been doing about the same thing I forget where I read that somebody on the Clippers training staff said the injury made Griffin better because he had to do a lot resistance training techniques and he never really trained like that before plus he came back with more motivation to prove people he wasn't the next Oden.
But Griffin and Jordan comprise the most athletic frontcourt I have ever saw and Eric Gordon might be the most physically gifted 2 guard in the league, throw James in the middle to lead, distribute, and provide that winning mentality, and you got yourself the most dangerous team in the league.
