Repped High Quality Post
 
I don't know about you, but I was incensed by the comments of Reggie Miller and Chris Webber as they claimed Blake Griffin's numbers are down because defenses have figured out his game. You and I know part of that is because of the fewer minutes he's played, as well as other factors. They also claimed ALL his numbers are down. So I decided to look at his Per 36 minutes stats. It's really the only way to compare: 2010-11: 21.3 pts, .506 FG%, .642 FT%, 11.4 rebs, 3.6 asts, 0.7 stls, 0.5 blks 2011-12: 20.6 pts, .549 FG%, .521 FT%, 10.8 rebs, 3.2....

Yeah I thought that comment was ridiculous as well. Sometimes, I wonder how much basketball alot of the "experts" actually watch. In past years, Blake was the only offense for us in stretches, and he HAD to score. Now, his scoring is not as important, so his numbers are down a bit.

Blake is playing the best basketball of his career and he's probably the best PF in the league so if C Webb and Reggie can't figure that out than their opinions shouldn't mean ****. I love how Steve Kerr and almost everyone on TNT believe LaMarcus is the best PF, that's such a joke his FG% is comparable to SG's and he plays 38 minutes a game and is the focal point of his offense and still only scores 2 more points than Griff, oh yeah and LaMarcus's team isn't even in the Playoffs.

Exactly...and when Paul went down, BG stepped it up big time, especially early on. Frustratingly, the team still lost many of those games, but hardly Blake's fault. Reminded one of his rookie year frankly.

It's his best season so far, don't listen to those stupid TNT commentators.

You could bet if the Bobcat game was on TNT or ESPN, we would hear about the greatness of that teamaand about our horrific PF who is useless. Good,,,we'll keep him and the announcers can keep their sexual fantasies with Miami and the Fakers and Kevin Love to themselves.

I think they just look at the numbers and not the per 36min numbers. thats why they say his numbers are down. they also dont take into account he doesnt have to do it all now. he has help, the best help he has ever gotten at any level.

Good post Voyeur- repped! Blake's use of his outside shot seems to be the main cause for the slight drop in rebounding #, but his court vision has improved, and his steals per game has also improved noticeably as well. Free throw % is also on the rise- 70% is definitely a nice goal by season's end.

CWebb, Reggie, and Charles only believe that you can only be a great player by taking over games and dropping 30+ points. Ironically, none of those clowns won a Championship. Charles already has 0 credibility as a basketball analyst so it doesn't surprise me that he says something asanine like "Tony Parker is better than Chris Paul" at half time during the Clippers/Spurs game. I guess he forgot how Chris Paul manhandled the Spurs in the first 2 meetings and Tony Parker looked like some guy hand selected from the crowd to play starting PG for the Spurs.

Hey thanks for the rep, david and the positive feedback from everyone else. I didn't even think about the fact that more outside jumpers from BG means less offensive boards for him but that makes a lot of sense too. Point is, Blake's awesome. lol

In terms of rebounding, Griffin's ORBs have decreased from 3.3 to 2.6, while his DRBs have dropped from 7.5 to 7.0 (PER36).

So in absolute terms, his decrease in offensive rebounding accounts for 58% of the total decrease.

Relatively speaking, his offensive rebounding has decreased by 21%, while his defensive rebounding is only down by 7%.

So it seems the outside jumpers are the main culprit for the decrease although the change in defensive attitude has also played a part.

Nice analysis.

One other slight effect on his ORB numbers (this is probably only a marginal effect) is that as a team, our FG% has increased from 45.5% to 47.4%.

In absolute terms, that equates to about 1.5 fewer missed shots per 36 minutes (a decrease of 4.5%). Clearly, BG's reduction in ORB is much greater, but having slightly fewer ORB opportunities doesn't help those numbers.

I sleep easy knowing Blake is still has so much left to improve and he's already the best power forward in the league and especially the most exciting.

You wanna see something funny? Check out Chris Webber's per 36 minutes stats his 4th and 5th year:

96-97: 18.5 pts, .518 FG%, .565 FT%, 9.5 rebs, 4.2 asts, 1.6 stls, 1.8 blks

97-98: 19.9 pts, .482 FG%, .589 FT%, 8.6 rebs, 3.5 asts, 1.4 stls, 1.6 blks

Nice assists, steals a blocks, but GOSH, opposing teams must've "figured out his game" since his points were down from when averaged 23 points in 95-96.

On a side note, it's interesting he didn't shoot his FT's better than 59% until his 7th year in the league.

Blake Griffin isn't doing quite as much as he did in the past for one big reason. He doesn't have to. This team has a lot more talent than they've ever had. As a result, scoring, rebounding, etc. are more spread out. The fact that his assists are up significantly testifies to this... Blake Griffin is getting better every year.

I agree... you can always tell who is actually watching games

Griffin continues to get better

Update on his 36 minutes stat:

20.7 pts, (the same, slightly higher than last year), .549 FG% (exactly the same as last year), .661 FT%, 9.6 rebs, 4.1 asts, 1.5 stls. 0.8 blks.

I can't say enough about that great triple double game against the best shot blocking team in the NBA.
