Blake Griffin profile
A broken kneecap in the final preseason game ruined what should have been Griffin's debut campaign, but the 6 ft 10 in power forward rebounded in 2010/11 to be named NBA Rookie of the Year and make the All-Star squad.
He was named as a starter in his second NBA All-Star appearance in February this year.
