Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin stopped by after practice to talk dunk contest, Lakers futility and NBA trade deadline with the Jay Mohr Sports radio show.
Griffin was brief, but in the interview, the former OU star called himself the best power forward in the league.
Mohr: Who is the best power forward in the NBA?
Griffin: "Whenever you are in a race or competitive environment you have to believe in yourself. I feel like I can compete with the rest of the guys in the league at the four spot. You can make a case for a lot of guys, but I believe in myself".
Mohr: "You're very humble and I know there are a lot of great power forwards, especially in the west. But, for the sake of my show, I'll ask you again...you can can say me, and I'll just play it on a loop....Who is the best power forward in the NBA"?
Griffin: "I've got to go with myself!"
Is he wrong? Griffin is quietly enjoying arguably the best statistical season of his career, averaging a career-best 24.4 points per game. Griffin is 10th in the league overall in Player Efficiency Rating.
