Blake Griffin vs. Kevin Love: Which NBA Forward Is Better Franchise Cornerstone?

Going into the 2010-11 season, not many predicted a year of abundant, solid power forwards.

Heck, for the last 15 years or so, the debate has been boiled down to Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett and Dirk Nowitzki. However, this past season was filled with many breakout power forwards, among them Kevin Love and Blake Griffin.

Today the NBA Featured Columnist Debate Team will take a look into two potential franchise guys in Love and Griffin and banter about who is the better starting block between the two. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you view the future) for them, they've been given the keys to their respective teams as the unquestioned leaders. Griffin might have Eric Gordon and Love might have Michael Beasley, but there is no denying who the building blocks are.

Two of Bleacher Report's own columnists, Joseph Fafinski and Rich Fernandes, have put together a comparison of the two, while offering opinions of the opposing players' games themselves.

Fafinski takes Love, and Fernandes takes Griffin.

Who do you think is the better franchise player? Please feel free to share your thoughts below in the comments' section.

Enjoy!
