Blake Griffin may be the most popular rookie since LeBron James. The young highlight reel has steadily jumped up the list of Western Forwards. Three weeks ago, the Clippers rookie was sixth. Today, the NBA announced that Blake moved ahead of Tim Duncan. Will he pass Dirk? Will KG start his 14th All-Star game? Will SLAM 145′s slender cover boy hold on to his slender lead above Chicago dynamo Derrick Rose?

We’ll find out when voting ends in a week!
