I thoroughly enjoyed your article on Blake Griffin (Poster Boys, Feb. 7). He continues to impress basketball fans not only with his monstrous slams but also with his hustle and dedication on the court. He's bringing the Clippers back from basketball purgatory and finally making the team interesting to follow.
I wanted to thank Chris Ballard for the excellent profile of Griffin. For far too long the Clippers have played second fiddle to the Lakers. With Griffin's help that's about to change.

There's no denying that Griffin is a unique specimen and an amazing dunker. However, the photo of his dunk on the Knicks' Danilo Gallinari shows a blatant offensive foul: Griffin grabs Gallinari's arm as he attempts the throw-down.
Is it by pure chance that your photograph of Griffin dunking over Zack Novak makes Griffin look like he's wearing a Superman cape?
