Any Chance ESPN is Overrating Blake Griffin?

After watching the Summer League, Blake Griffin is labeled a combination of Charles Barkley and Tim Duncan. Who knew the J.A. stood for jackass?

No, I haven't read the article and won't because the headline is so ridiculous,

    Watching Blake Griffin at Oklahoma I can tell you this kid has bust written all over him. When ever anybody dared challenge him he would star crying and whining and then if he would really get pushed he would be out of the game with an “injury”. I remember watching him thinking the NBA is going to eat him of alive. You don’t act like you have been in the league for 10 years before you play a day.

    Absolutely. He’s awesome, obviously, but damn if he’s not the perfect example of a guy who needs help with the timing of his release point on his jump-shot. They barely ever talk about his weak points. Eh, whatever, it’s always the same with ESPN anyways.

    Sad story those Clippers are-just when it looked like they were breaking out of “it” a few years back, they have fallen deeper into futility. Someone needs to just drop a bomb on them and start from scratch. Maybe even just a new city and new name a la Seattle. (not that Seattle needed it as badlly-just i.e.)

    not really…blake griffin is a spectacular talent with unlimited upside….tim duncan and charles barkley morphed into one body? that may be stretching it, then again maybe not, he has a tim duncan personality in a charles barkley package…lol

    JA Adande is literally one of the worst writers I have ever read. He is a blatant LA homer (even though he should be unbiased seeing as he writes for ESPN now) and won’t write an article unless it has something to do with LA. Not only that, but he’s an horrible sensationalist. He just sucks…him and Bill Plaschke.
