Has their ever been a more overrated NBA player than Blake Griffin?
I have thought this for yrs. Dude can give a highlite reel dunk and block a shot here or there. But that's about it. Thoughts?

I think he's properly rated. Top 10 currently, give or take.

Can't stand the guy as a player but he has improved a lot throughout his career.

He's got one of the best midrange shots for a big and is probably the best passing PFin the game. But yeah, he just dunks and stuff.

And I probably hate the Clippers more than you , but Blake Griffin is really freaking good. Top 10 player in the league. One of the best ball-handling big men in the league, great passer, great mid-range game, and very good around the rim.

People who only think he can dunk need to watch him play. That being said, he does choke quite a bit and I enjoy the heck out of that.

Him only being a dunker was true at the start of his career. I don't hate him like y'all do, but it's been pretty cool to see his game blossom into something truly elite the past couple years. All due to hard work on his part. Always thought he'd be one of those players who'd decline precipitously once his athleticism began to flag, but he proved me wrong. Terrifically skilled big

If he was that great he could at least carry the Clippers to the finals. He can't even begin to think about doing that. He melts when the pressure begins to mount. Overrated as frick

This was at OU and clearly shows he wasn't just a dunker. He's improved since then.

He hasn't even made the conference finals. He's a great player, easily top 10 but is a little bit soft IMO.

if he's overrated, you need to set a baseline. how many hybrid 4/5 guys would you take over him in a draft? 2, 3 tops?

He's a top 10 player until CP3 bitches out and starts deferring to him in crunch time of big games

He had a pretty limited game when he first came into the league, but he's pretty damn good these days.
