The dunk master power forward has a vertical leap of 35.5 inches and hammered out 22 reps of 185 pounds on the bench press at the NBA Combine in 2009, a record for a No. 1 draft pick. Griffin has the unique ability to bang with the big bodies under the basket and also fly high above them. Griffin's leaping ability is so impressive that he's actually knocked his head against the backboard and has learned to avoid a nasty collision with the rim on alley-oops. Even though he's earned a salary reserved for big stars, it hasn't changed his hustle. "Energy is something you can control," he told Men's Health in this interview. "In everything you do, you're going to face people more talented than you. I set myself apart by bringing more energy than they do.
