Default Just for fun: Kevin Love or Blake Griffin

Two very younger players showing their game this season, with different play styles.

Who would you want on your team?

Blake definitely has a higher ceiling, so based on potential along I'd have to go with Big Griff. Love is a really great player as well though. He's is going to be an All-Star this year. Mark my words.

Wall is an MVP type player. Love is a player who will always be someones Robin. Wall will be much better then Love.

Blake Griffin >> Kevin Love. Blake Griffin is all-star worthy now. Once Blake develops a consistant jumper he's going to be very hard to defend.

So is Love. If Love doesn't make the all-star team, then really no big should. Love already has a nice jumper that can stretch out beyond the 3 point line. I'm not saying I would take him over Griffen, but if I had to, I wouldn't be dissapointed at all. However, neither of them has helped their team in the win column.

Love, he doesnt seem as likely to hurt himself, where i can see griffin blowing his knee out again. Not to mention loves numbers are HUGE.

If Griffin does succumb to injury, I doubt it will be his knees again- that was a freak accident. I'd be more worried about him breaking his neck or something. Seriously, the way this guy plays combined with his athleticism... I've never seen someone just go get it like him, it honestly looks like he doesn't care about his body sometimes... crazy player to watch!
And back on topic, Griffin hands down. The guy is crazy good, reminds me of Shawn Kemp.

If i had a team to build around someone it would be pure Love baby. He can shoot the rock, rebound, and doesnt have wonky knees.

Its a difficult question, when the rest of your "team" is hypothetical. but if we are basing this on first pick scenario. Its got to be Love. Your really only giving up explosiveness, to get imo a greater basketball IQ, a greater perceived durability, and leadership, not to mention a player who can shoot, and expand the size of the court. Not to say Griffin won't progress, But a this moment in time he would be my pick.

its style over substance here IMO.
Love is the better rebounder, better shooter, can hit the 3, can actually shoot free throws, and doesnt need the ball in his hands to be a force.
dont get me wrong, i love what griffin brings to the table, and he will definitely be a superstar in this league, but Love is - at the moment - the better all around player and is the better 'team' guy.

this is like the Garnett/Duncan battle from years ago.
who would you take? style/substance...

Nothing is wrong with his hair colour just he always make this weird, creepy, and ugly looking face expression when he goes for a dunk. Watch Below and see what I mean. Anyways I like Kevin Love game but Blake wins this one with no doubt.
