The Poster Child

The Sixers lost to the Bulls by 45 points last night. There's nothing worth talking about in that pathetic effort other than Derrick Rose is really, really good, and the Bulls are way better than the Sixers. But you know what is worth talking about? Blake Griffin.

I heard yesterday on PTI that there's a movement out there to nickname Blake Griffin "The Poster Child." The following is why. (Via You Been Blinded, mostly You Got Dunked On and YouTube)

This young man is a monster, and at this point, I don't see any possible way he won't be Rookie of the Year. Through 29 games, Griffin is averaging 20.8 points and 12.2 rebounds a game. He's shooting 51.7 percent from the floor. And he's already made more posters in the first two months of his rookie seasons than most players make in a lifetime.

The Clippers may suck, but Blake Griffin is ridiculous right now.
