Blake Griffin: 10 Reasons Why He Is the Most Exciting NBA Player, Period

Move over LeBron James, there is an incredible player people are actually rooting for now.

I'm not sure if you've heard about this guy—he was, after all, the No. 1 pick a year and a half ago and had to sit out what would have been his rookie season.

In a year that my man Tyreke Evans won Rookie of the Year, I think it would be safe to say Evans had no shot at winning it if Blake Griffin played a minute. 

Anyone who has been equated to a combination of Charles Barkley and Karl Malone, sign me up. That sounds like the best two things to be compared to at power forward, ever.

On a nightly basis, he is giving out facials and making incredible plays while reinventing the game of basketball.

Did I mention he can dunk?

This cat can jam. And I mean jam like NBA Jam. Some of his dunks seem impossible.

Aside from dunking, he has great handles for someone his size. He has vision and can see a play developing like few other players I've watched.

The guy hit his head on the backboard when he still played at Oklahoma. He plays with a reckless abandon that I have never seen before in an athlete with his amount of talent. 

It may be safe to say that Blake Griffin is the basketball version of Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu. Both are absolutely fearless and not afraid to put their bodies on the line.

I felt this slideshow might be a good way to highlight the phenomenon known as Blake Griffin, especially as he came off his 47-point performance against the Indiana Pacers.

He now currently holds the season high for points by an individual player in a game.

And to think, the best is only to come. The dude is going to be in the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest at All-Star Weekend!

Now I present a somewhat-chronicle of Griffin dunks many people have been fortunate to see this season.

If you don't believe yet, prepare to be baptized in the infinite greatness of Blake Griffin's hellacious dunks and plays.
