Default John Wall Vs Blake Griffin

Begin the debate? Who's killing it more? I'd say they both are two of the most exciting players to watch right now in the NBA. The rookie pool this season is amazing, but it's definitely between those two for rookie of the year. I'm thinking co rookies of the year this season.

I would say blake griffin has being more consistant but wall has had the more spectacular performances. He had a couple that were ridiculous.

I prefer Griffin as Roy so far. He doesnt shoot as much, and Wall is having too many TOs.

John Wall. He's been spectacular, if I'm not mistaken he's had 1 or 2 triple doubles. The only thing that I saw that made me scratch my head was him getting 9 steals and in the same game had 8 turnovers. Lol Haven't seen much of either of them but right now I'd go with Wall.

Wall is averaging as many turnovers per game as Steve Nash. I think as he continues to adjust, he will pull further and further away from the pack in RotY voting. And Washington is playing better than the Clippers right now, despite the significant disparity in talent between the two teams.

turnovers are common for young guards

I wish we tanked 2 years before and got em both... what a sick team we'd be :P

Anyway back to reality, I'd take Wall any day.

Blake Griffin will be more consistent. Wall will win the ROY award because Washington, while still shitty, will do better than the Clippers and he's more flashy.

What about co rookies of the year, I think they are both well deserving of it. John Wall is a defensive menace though, I'm thinking first team all defense if he continues to steal the ball every second possession haha. On the same token though, Griffin is a rebound machine and plays good defense. If these two played together it would be scary. Screw the big three's these guy would be an absolutely DISGUSTING big two.

I expected the Clippers to do a little better. Losing to the Pistons?

Especially when they play 40mpg.

And really, his TO numbers are a little skewed by that one game where he had 8 turnovers.

griffin is a more solid player and can be built towards a tim duncan type. wall is more flashy and gets it done on most nights, i see him as a PG version of lebron with his ability to create explosive plays.

the problem with comparing who should be ROY is that wall has the ball in his hands almost all the time, griffen needs to be given the ball and will only get so many touches a game.

if i had to vote i'd say wall because of the numbers but for a player to build around on my team i would choose griffen.
