I think it is stupid to compare these players,especially so early in their NBA
experience. There will never be anyone to come close to all the things Malone
and a whole host HOF players did. This is a new time and new season.Maybe kets
compare them in nineteen years..
don't "ever" compare this kid to KARL - "ever" !
he is preety good but last game he kicked butt on singel coverage. second half
doubel team shut him down. same as this game cisco would not have slowed him
down first half . clippers look good every game first half must be a
I personnally think Elson deserves a lot more minutes. He plays the game the
right way, and is a terrific pickup for the Jazz. Good luck men!
I wouldn't compare Griffen to karl malone,Griffen, when healthy, is
clearly a superior baskeball player.and Griffin, in his short career
has won as many Championships as malone has.malone strange worship
by fans was always overdone, he never delivered anything, couldn;t play defense
above the waist, underachiveing rebounder for size and strenght, and spent the
last 10 years mostly shooting fade shots, and his numbers were artificeallly
boosted by a system designed to get him the ball first on offense.centering the offense around a player that could never create his own shot was
the reason the Jazz never won a championship,malone may have been
a very good, some may even say a great positional player, but
griffin is showing the ability of a great all around basketball player.
Jazzsmack - your basketball knowledge is truly a wonderful thing to behold. I am
sure you could find a few dozen NBA coaches and hundreds of NBA players who
absolutely agree with you. (Now where is that sarcastic font again?)Karl Malone is in the Hall of Fame, led his team to two NBA finals
appearances, won a gold medal and is in the top three or four power forwards of
all time on anyone's list. Griffin is a talent, but has so far led his team to
how many wins? He also has a knack of disappearing in the fourth quarter -- he
did it at OU and has continued in LA, when he is healthy. Look no futher than
his two performances against the Jazz this year. Game 1 - OT -- where was he?
One the bench w/ 6 fouls. Game 2 who shut him down? Francisco the journey man
who? Numbers don't mean anything - wins do. Karl has plenty - Blake is just
@ Rick, Most if not all of the NBA records will be broken. Lets what a few year
befor we compare him with the Mailman. If he can stay helthy, plays with a good
team and puts in the time he could become one of the best PF in NBA history.
