Who else was Blake Griffin gonna pick once he was put on the spot by a sports radio host? BG naturally went with himself as the L’s best power forward (the LA Clippers All-star also talked about his reluctance to take part in the Slam Dunk Contest again.) Per Fox Sports:
What will it take for you to get back in the dunk contest, will it be a check? You have nothing to prove, you jumped over a Kia for crying out loud…Would you ever just do it for fun or is it going to take a check to get the real stars like you and LeBron (James) back in the dunk contest?
Griffin: “No, I don’t think it would take big prize money. The format would definitely have to be different. I thought that this (years) format wasn’t very good. It wasn’t very entertaining it and it didn’t give the guys a chance to do what they really wanted. It’s not going to take a lot. It just has to be the right time, right opportunity”.
Who is the best power forward in the NBA?
Griffin: “Whenever you are in a race or competitive environment you have to believe in yourself. I feel like I can compete with the rest of the guys in the league at the four spot. You can make a case for a lot of guys, but I believe in myself”.
You’re very humble and I know there are a lot of great power forwards, especially in the west. But, for the sake of my show, I’ll ask you again…you can can say me, and I’ll just play it on a loop….Who is the best power forward in the NBA?
Griffin: “I’ve got to go with myself!”
