Dawson showed stellar defense at Michigan State, setting a school record with 142 blocks. For getting him, the Clippers earned a thumbs-up from ESPN's Arash Markazi. Draft thumbs-up or thumbs-down

Griffin can play, but can he win it all?

Even though Stephen Curry looks like the best player from the 2009 draft class, Blake Griffin has been as advertised and perhaps more since going No. 1 overall to the Clippers. The best thing he can do to raise his stock now is help the Clips bring home the first title in team history. Ford: Ranking NBA No. 1 picks (Insider)
