Shane Battier is going to become one of the better SF's in the league next year. Quietly, he will get his 18ppg and 7 rbs, along with 5 assists and solid defensive efforts, being the consummate star role player.

Griffin... it's not really that close. He has better range than Kirilenko, much better shotblocking, and also is better at playing down low. Much better defender. Battier's good, but doesn't have star ability. Griffin does.
The question is not can he shoot, but can he make them when they count?Originally posted by <b>The Cat</b>!
I've seen Griffin shoot in warmups, during the games, and have listened to reports from insiders. This guy can absolutely shoot. It's hard to tell from last season, when he had to do a lot of things he's not yet ready for. When you have a healthy Francis, Mo Taylor, and Yao Ming on this team, he should have considerably more open looks.

There is no question that Eddie Griffin will be the best out of this group by the time all of these players develop.

Ummmm...yes there is a question about it. I think that Kirilenko will the best of this group. He has the quickness, the shooting touch, the toughness and the love of the game. And yes, the talent as well. He will be a superb NBA player, and I believe he will be the best of this group.
See, there is a question about who will be the best.
