POLL RESULTS: GRIFFIN VS. RANDOLPH
Who would you prefer as the future Power Forward?
Blake Griffin: 38 votes (49%)
Anthony Randolph: 39 votes (50%)
Total votes: 77
Anthony Randolph barely wins by a single vote which surprises me somewhat. There's no doubt that Griffin is a dominant college player, but Randolph has shown the he can more than hold his own verses the professionals. Some are even predicting that he will eventually become an all-star. Griffin is a better scorer and perhaps Randolph's equal in rebounds, but the younger Randolph has the potential to be a game-changing defensive presence and mismatch nightmare able to play 3 positions in Don Nelson's rotation. Blake Griffin is undersized for his position, less proven, less versatile, and likely with less upside than Randolph.
Feel free to post a comment on why you voted one way or the other.
