He showed that off again tonight with this tremendous and-one through against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Check it out here:
He is just unbelievable. He has such raw ability that is unteachable. He is one of the most entertaining and polarizing players in the NBA and should continue to be for the immediate and distant future.
If Griffin can ever add to his game, he’s going to be move from all-star to elite in no time flat. He can’t survive on dunking alone which is why this layup is so special for him. You need something else to turn to when you can no longer fly over and through another human being the way Air-Griffin does now. A jump shot or even a bit better free throw shooting could be the difference between great player and Hall Of Fame for Griffin. Expect him to work on that heavily this off-season and every offseason moving forward. He is absolutely amazing but without those added parts of his game, the league will adapt.
At this point, a foul shot is his kryptonite.
But for the moment, who is going to complain when you get ridiculous highlights like this one.
