Here is a decent comparison... B. Griff vs D Howard Which had a better rookie season?
Both are game changers in different ways. Blake's issue is his whole game focuses on his athleticism. He needs to obviously add more skills. Surprised he didn't work more on a jumpshot while he was injured. That being said, the guy is a beast. My concern is he plays SOOOO recklessly that he will get hurt again. See: Gerald Wallace. His nickname is crash.

He moves so well for a big man. The spin move he pulled off last night in the lane was ridiculous. He also scored 47? With a good coach to teach him how to lengthen his career, he could be a perennial all-star. But think of it selfishly for a moment, if he learned a jump shot and toned down his game, would he still be as enjoyable to watch?

To me, yes. It would open up a lot of things in his career. The way he plays is high risk, so he will get hurt.

Last night he looked great but there are times where he's just out of control, running into players when he shouldn't.

Heat can't beat a real team. I'm almost sure that this team will not do much in the playoffs. Not pass the celtics or bulls or magic.

Lakers are a real team and they beat them. This is coming from a lakers fan. All it takes is someone to get hot and take over a game or two. The heat play good d so they stand a chance. They obviously have some glaring holes but it is a long way til April/May. I don't think they will win it all but they have a chance at winning a couple of series. Mike Miller is still hurt too. My point is, it's a long season, don't get down on your team.

I do think it will be Lakers celts again though.

Ya I wouldnt count the heats out, miller is still ailing and their best rebounder is out. They stay healthy they can win it all maybe not this year tho. If artest and fish's shot is off the lakers have a hard time winning imo.

I had the lakers to win it this year again. I also picked Boston out of the east. Heat are still a little banged up but I don't use that as an excuse , look at the celtics. The celtics have had by far the worst injury bug this year.

They have tons of depth though (Celts).

Why can't we ever show up on big games like these. We always get blown out when we're on ESPN, TNT, or ABC.

Kind of knew they would be a average team with .500 records. They were finally put to the test playing against teams with .500+ record.
