  • Published on Jan 9, 2019
  • Amin Elhassan, Chiney Ogwumike and Byron Scott of The Jump count down the three best Blake Griffin Staples Center moments, then debate whether Griffin is the best LA Clippers player of all time, or if that title goes to Chris Paul, Elton Brand or someone else from the franchise previously known as Lob City.

    If CP3 is a greater Clipper than Blake, then Shaq is a greater Laker than Kobe,
    LeBron is a greater Heat than Dwade and KD is a greater Warrior than Steph.

    Blake Griffin would have had at least an MVP if CP3 didn't join Blake..
    The dude averaged 22/12/4 as DAMN ROOKIE.
    He has developed his game more than anyone in the league this past decade (at least) despite having a bunch of injuries..
    Now imagine if he would have been the number 1 guy at all times and would have developed his game to his true potential instead of what suited with the Clippers play style with Paul. Clippers didn't need the playmaking Blake because they had the greatest playmaker in history (CP3). Blake was one of a kind, great passer, playmaker, scorer and could jump out the roof and now he has lost a lot of athleticism, but is having his best year of his career, give him his athleticism back and he'd be the best player in the league.
    If CP3 would have joined the Clippers 2-3 years later, they would have won a championship, 100%.

    Elton Brand is the GOAT Clipper. His Box Plus/Minus, Win Shares Per 48 Minutes, Win Shares, Defensive Win Shares, Offensive Win Shares, Player Efficiency Rating are all higher than Blake Griffin. Those arent even all the stats where Brand is better than Griffin. Plus Brand also dealt with Sterling who was racist and rarely paid players to help him win easier for much of his career while Blake had Balmer who is probably one of the best owners in terms of willing to do whatever it takes to win. The only clipper you can make an argument for is CP3 but he is a punk so ELTON is the GOAT.

    Nah.. Question is "Is CP3 really considered a Clipper?" Is Lebron a better Miami Heat player than D Wade? No of course not. Lebron isn't considered a Heat player even if that is the city where he had the most success in. Same for CP3.
