Griffin isn't even in the NBA yet. Right now I'd go with Anthony Randolph because there is still that chance that Griffin could end up being a bust.

OMG Griffin by far. He has no bust potential imo. He's gonna kill it and be ROY.

umm griffin ... his arms alone weigh more than randolph.

i like randolph, huge upside and has long arms which should make him an elite shot blocker when his body finally develops but griffin is gonna be the better player.

As a power forward prospect, it's clearly Griffin.

Griffin has the makings of a fine player and All-Star.

I'm led to believe that AR has star power, but his unique skillset and frame means he only thrives in a system like GS

Is this thread serious? Even Isiah Thomas could figure out that the obvious and easy answer here is Blake Griffin.

The youngest player in the league (he was 18 when drafted) averaged 15 and 11 in April..Add in his shot blocking, awesome handles for a 6'10 player, intense nature and what do you end up with?





A superstar by the time he turns 22.

There is only one player worthy of being called Magic, and neither of them are listed options.

Oh man, Sid is hilarious .. Everytime I see a thread where there's a thread about AR I take a look and search for Sid the Squid's post, it always makes my day.

What's the big difference in being 20 like .. um, Rose or 19 like AR ? AR might be superstar at 22 like you say, he will probably not, though, maybe 23-25, but Rose is already not that far away from the superstar status, and will definitely be a superstar at 22 if he keeps improving.

You're too high on AR, he's a really good player, but you don't seem to understand that you are making him underrated with your stupid overrating. No offense, just sayin'.

Maybe Anthony "Baby Jesus" Randolph turns into a star, but to quote his April stats as evidence of such is pretty hilarious, and (Please Use More Appropriate Word). Stats in the last month of a season for a horrible, lottery bound team mean nothing.

AR... he has homerun potential that BG doesn't...

If AR makes a successful transition to the 3, he'll be a matchup nightmare on both sides... I can't see teams ever fearing Griffin on both sides of the ball..

Because both are so young and relatively inexperienced, potential plays a big part in the decision... give me Baby Jesus right now...
