Blake Griffin: A landslide win for the rookie of the year awards

Blake Griffin last year saw Tyreke Evans won the rookie of the year awards. It was supposed to be his placed….His destiny.

Blake worked so hard on the preseason but his career got derailed by a broken knee cap. He wanted to be the best; he wanted so much to prove to everybody that he was the right choice for the overall number one pick on the draft. But it was never meant for him. It was not his time yet.

Even on the draft, Blake was the hands down number one pick. He was a no-brainer choice. With an NBA ready body that can score and play defense. From Brandon Jennings all the way to Hasheem Thabeet, there’s nobody that comes close to Griffin. Not even a comparison.

February 18 will be the NBA All-star rookie challenge. Although it’s a non bearing game, but for Blake he still means business. He will be facing his familiar 2009 draft achievers against a freshmen team he is leading now with John Wall, Demarcus Cousins and Derrick Favors. He will be facing the former Rookie of the year Tyreke Evans. The 6-foot-6 point guard Evans was the fourth NBA player in history to average at least 20 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists in his rookie year.
Blake would love the challenge… He would love the thought of winning against a sophomore team. The team where he was supposed to be…

Blake Griffin will not be a mere spectator this time. At still half the season it looks like it’s already a landslide win for the rookie of the year awards. This is his time now… his destiny… and not even John Wall or DeMarcus Cousins comes close.

And not even a comparison….
