Blake Griffin vs. Kevin Durant: For reasons that remain a mystery, ESPN decided to compare Clippers’ power forward Blake Griffin to Thunder small forward Kevin Durant. The categories – key strength, key weakness, secret skill, intangibles, and “Player POV.” If you don’t have ESPN Insider … Blake Griffin came out on top. I wonder if Wilson Chandler of the Nuggets (who will defend KD in the first round of the playoffs) saw this: “Durant is a phenomenal talent who can explode for 40 on any given night. But there’s a way to deal with him — be physical and push him as far out as possible to disrupt his rhythm.” [ESPN]
