After one of the finest seasons in his career, Blake Griffin is somehow still improving at he enters his age-30 season. The Detroit Pistons star has slowly become an elite shooter for a big man, and is getting even better in that department this offseason. Griffin can now get off corner threes with the speed normally reserved for guards.
In his first year under Dwane Casey, a coach who loved to use the power forward position to direct his offense, Griffin averaged a career-high 24.5 points and 7.5 rebounds per game while making his sixth All-Star appearance and leading Detroit to a playoff spot.
Griffin's shooting has become as deadly a weapon for him, as he shot 36% on seven threes per game last year. More than the rim-runner he was early in his career, Griffin is a complete offensive threat that can finish off a ferocious dunk, make some nifty moves on the low post, or hang around the 3-point line and spot up.

By virtue of playing in Detroit instead of Los Angeles, Griffin's resurgence has flown under the radar. Under Casey's watch, Griffin has officially returned to superstar level.
