While watching the Hawks win yesterday over the Clippers (great weekend for an Atlanta fan's perspective: Thrashers win 2, Falcons clinch home field) I couldn't help but be impressed by power forward Blake Griffin. This kid would be the face of the NBA if he didn't play for the Clippers. Every night he has a highlight reel dunk. Every single night. In just his first season after coming back from a broken kneecap that wiped away his whole rookie season the young Griffin is averaging 21.7 points and 12.5 rebounds. He still needs to work on his free throw shooting and he has the ability to hit from beyond the arc but once he gets it down we might be arguing about Blake Griffin as the best NBA player instead of the usual Lebron-Kobe-Dwight talk.
