Enjoy the superficial game Philly.
In the grand scheme of things he is a meaningless player. Good for promotional stuff and for oohs and aahs (since the refs don't call him for charging, which he does on about 90% of his dunks), but when ti comes down to it defense, rebounds and fundamentals win games. 3 things that Griffin hasn't gotten close to.
The dude averages 10.5 rebs a game for his career how cant he rebound? People can say all they want that well he has CP3 to set him up but he avged 22.5/12.1 before cp3 even came and that as a rookie. One demension type player sure I agree but he is so good at what he does that it is enough to be an all star. Like I also said you can see him working on fundamentals and footwork down in the post he is getting better at it.
I love how you make it out that the things he is lacking arent things you can learn, everything you say he is messing you can learn the guy is 24. You cant teach jumping and finishing ability like he has, sure the league gives him calls but they give calls to a bunch of players so dont act like he gets special treatmeat that no one else gets.
You cant knock Blake but then have players like lebron that came into the league and were dominating due to their athletics but had a broke jumper and no sense of the word footwork in the post and didnt even get a semblance of a post game until last year who get praise for finally rounding out their game. Blake is in his thrid year give the kid some time to round out his game, I totally forgot players like MJ or Kobe came in with a consistent three point shot and the deadly fadeaway.
I get it he's a clipper we dont have to like him, but dont hate on the young kid becaus he is dunking on people. In 4 more years if all he is doing is still just dunking on people then yes I will agree he is overrated, but you cant expect for someone to come out of college and be tremoundous in one area and also solid in every other area, that takes time to do.
