I just don't like the media and annoying fans fellating Blake.
He's not the future of the NBA. He's not an MVP candidate.
He's a solid rookie putting up nice numbers on a s**tty Clippers team who has a few decent highlight dunks once in a while.
He's not this aww-shucks humble character that he is being portrayed as either. He's got cockiness and swagger, and that's fine. It's just that everyone wants to build him up as a contrast to Lebron James, just like they tried to do with Durant this offseason. The nice humble superstar, etc. Anyone hyping him up as the future of the NBA will be sorely disappointed.
I'll give Blake credit when he actually does something noteworthy.
I met/talked with him last April, he's a pretty humble guy. He's got cockiness and swagger because he's a fierce competitor that continues to give everything he's got no matter what. Like it or not, players like him who actually give a s**t ARE the future of the NBA.
Absolutely. As I said a few posts prior, Blake plays all out every second he's on the floor despite the score.
For some people to discredit Blake just cus he's on a bad team is pretty ignorant. It's a lame argument, actually, for people to discredit Kevin Love, David Lee, Monta Ellis, Blake Griffin, just because they're on bad teams.
