I know there is a post on this guy every other day but, if Griffin is short, how bad will that hurt his stock?
I understand it is kind of a big deal, however, I think Griffin is versitle enough to be a small power foward or even move to the small foward. I know he doesn't have a great outside game but you can learn to shoot over a summer. He is quick, super athletic, and very strong. He has got some handles and looks like he can play some defence if he is not scared of fouling out. If he measures 6'7 or something stupid, will he loose the number one slot??
I dont think he will lose stock because even if he is still kind of short to play the power forward position he is very versatile like you said and strong so i think he can move to small forward. I see him as kind of a Lebron James player obviously not that good but just the strength and body type.
well...if he is really 6-7...i think he falls to the like 2-5. I say this because he would be undersized as a PF and i dont think he has a sound jumpshot to be a good SF.
Look what happened to M. Beasley. He had a shot at the #1 slot, but lost it once he was measured in at the exact same height as J. Alexander. I think that bodes poorly for Blake because Beasley has superior perimeter skills, while Blake seems to be a strictly post player at this point. Of course, there is nothing wrong with being picked #2-5, since the money is not the different from #1. Its all about the 2nd contract in the NBA.
He could develop an outside game. Not all 3 guards are great shooters. He could be put in a better position if he does measure small where he could be on a team where he is not required to be the number one or two option. If he does need to develop his outside game, the 5 pick could give him the time and room to develop.
Many sources are reportedly saying Blake Griffin might be 6'6 and if hes a powerforward at that size that wont help him no matter how strong,quick,athletic he is
I heard ppl say 6'8 or 6'9, but 6'7 and 6'6 is tooo short and I know he isnt that short. Have yall watched him before?? If you've seen him u know automatically that he is at least 6'8'' and some change. 6'6''?? come on, dejaun blair is 6'6'' and Griffin looks alot taller than him.
i think he will be around 6-8/6-9. even if he is shorter than that by an inch or two, so what. We have all seen what kind of damage undersized pfs like milsap, maxiell, and most recentlly big baby can do. Blake would be a undersized pf that is much more athletic and skilled than these guys. i think he is gonna turn out to be an absolute beast
I think that he will end up being close to what he is listied but i thought the same thing about Beasley. I feel that it will not hurt him as far as how he will preform.
if he was 6-6 he would go #1. simple as that.
i think even if he is shorter than advertised gms will look at his wingspan, if he is a bit undersized but makes up for it in wingspan and standing reach i think he definteley deserves to be no 1 pick
what you've got to understand is if you measure 6'8, that means you're 6'10 in the NBA. 6'8 is not undersized. if an NBA roster lists you at 6'8 that means you're really 6'6. Dwight Howard measured 6'9 people. is he an undersized center? even if Griffin measures 6'7 he's still gonna be listed 6'9 which makes him just like most power forwards.
come on...he isn't 6'7''...i think he's 6'9'' in shoes
I hope he is not short but ya never know. I would love to see him move to the 3 position tho. He could be a domintae 3 guard.
He doesnt have a natural shooting touch so that woud hurt him in a move to the 3. If he is 6'6" then his potential will be limited but he can still be a strong player like Millsap. I think he stays #1 nomatter what because there was no D-Rose shooting up the charts in March.
