Now in his third season, Blake Griffin is considered a superstar in the NBA and has been an All-Star in his first two NBA seasons and is expected to be one for the foreseeable future. But despite the fantastic dunks and the excitement he brings, he simply is not playing at an All-Star level this year and has actually regressed. Despite this fact, he is one of the league’s most popular players and will in all likelihood be voted in by the fans, but it will be underserved. It is no secret that the Western Conference is loaded with frontcourt talent, especially at power forward and Griffin is obviously among the elite in that category, but based on stats and efficiency he is simply not stacking up this year. There are usually around 4 big men chosen per conference and there are five Western Conference big men who are simply outplaying him. Blake Griffin- Minutes: 33.2 – Points: 17.5- Rebounds: 8.9- Shooting Percentage: .513 Kevin Love- Minutes: 34.3- Points: 19.4 -Rebounds: 14.6 -Shoot...

Randolph's late flurry powers Grizzlies past Suns in OT

MEMPHIS -- Memphis center Marc Gasol has played alongside Zach Randolph long enough to know when the Grizzlies' veteran forward is unstoppable. "He has a little bounce, like a boxer, and raises his eyebrow," Gasol said. "You can see it in his face when he's feeling it." Randolph had that look Tuesday, throwing jab after jab against Phoenix before he...

Byron Mullens Flying Dunk on LaMarcus Aldridge's Face (Video)

Check out ya boy Byron Mullens of the Charlotte Bobcats flying over top of LaMarcus Aldridge and dunking all over his face last night.  This is a seven footer I might add.  Never seen anything like it.  Aldridge didn't seem like he wanted to go for a block and settled for trying to take a charge, but no go on that.  The dunk was good to go and it clearly sits at the top of...

Byron Mullens Dunks All Over LaMarcus Aldridge, But Bobcats Still Lose (Video)

Quite the athletic play from the...
