This has been said for many players in the past, but I can't think of anyone who perpetuates this notion more than Blake Griffin. If Blake knew how to hedge a pick he wouldn't have gotten injured for the Olympics.
Guys like Deandre Jordan and Javale McGee are also ultra dependent on their athleticism.
I agree with you guys though and I've been saying it. He's going to crash and burn soon if he doesn't diversify his game. Not to mention, injuries are going to start sapping that athleticism pretty quickly here and he's going to be an afterthought fairly quickly.
