He's averaging 15 rebounds a game in his last three games against Utah, Denver and San Antonio. The kid is an animal.

And before anyone screams it's preseason, remember you're the same guys deciding how good or crappy Raptors players are based on preseason results.

So you can see Amare's name in that article? Isn't he the one of the best power forwards in the league?

Are you sure C/PF's don't have big scoring games?

Griffin is the real deal.

I'm expecting about 15-17 pts and about 10 rebs per game.

If he can work on his game like Karl Malone did he could be an incredible talent for many years to come.

Amare is a beast
Bosh scored 40+ a few times last season I believe....

And it should read.... Phoenix with Hedo - No playoffs.

Good example. Especially considering both were/are overhyped and both missed their entire first season in the league.

He's runs the floor better than any big I can think of today. And probably the best in that respect since Karl Malone. Factor in his ability to play above the rim, and his exceptional handles, and he's gonna be one to watch.

When he was not allowed to walk, Blake Griffin would sit in a folding chair five feet in front of the basket and shoot floaters from his backside. When he was allowed to walk but not run, he would pace the perimeter of the court and dribble tennis balls with both hands. By the time he was finally cleared to run and jump, the season was over and all of his teammates were gone, off on vacations he did not believe he had earned. So he stayed behind, and whenever Clippers officials heard sneakers squeaking on the floor of their practice facility, they knew the soles belonged to their young power forward.
