It appears that Blake Griffin may have had his powers stolen by the Monstars before tonight’s game against the Bobcats because he suddenly forgot how to throw down. Slob city. But on a serious note, we’ll give Blake a pass on this one because the pass was less than impressive. [@SBNationGIF]
They Los Angeles Clippers have played down the “Lob City” mantra this year, but their aerial assault have only enhanced their legend. On Monday DeAndre Jordan or Blake Griffin dunked, slammed and jammed all over the Detroit Pistons with such ease they were on fire and entering “NBA Jam” mode.
It wasn’t only Kris Humphries who got demoralized by dunks on Wednesday night, the entire Boston squad got dunked on by Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. It was a complete assault of fast break jams, alley-oops and nasty facials. It wasn’t pretty for the Celtics as the Clippers went on to win 111-105.
Wait, is it Mozgov’d? Or, is it Perkins’d? We’re not sure. Maybe they’re interchangeable? Either way, I’m sure basketball purist nitwits on the Interwebs will make some sort of proclamation that this not really a dunk — and, thus, not a posterization — because Blake Griffin’s hand didn’t make contact with the rim. Those people
And by “all over”, we mean over, and over, and over…*big inhale*…and over, and over again. DeAndre Jordan took care of the posterizing, while Blake Griffin took home the dunk of the night — an alley-oop windmill that was somewhat forced by a less-than-perfect lob from Matt Barnes (he’s not exactly Chris Paul, ya know).
ESPN is reporting that the Knicks have discussed the idea of proposing a trade to the Clippers that would send Carmelo Anthony to Los Angeles in exchange for Blake Griffin. Sources also say that Clippers management has had internal discussions about such a deal, but neither team have spoken to one another about a potential
Before the Los Angeles Clippers took on the Utah Jazz on Saturday night Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan starred in an impromptu slam dunk contest. Griffin tossed an alley-oop to himself off-the-backboard then went between-the-legs for a monster jam. Meanwhile Jordan performed a phenomenal baseline 180-degree between-the-legs slam. I give the edge to Griffin in
Blake Griffin took out his frustrations of being unfairly being kicked out of the hard-fought game against the Golden State Warriors on the Portland Trailblazers with this massive put-back dunk.
In the fourth quarter of the Clippers-Warriors Christmas Day nightcap, Blake Griffin was assessed a preposterous technical foul for attempting to remove his jersey from the clenched hand of Warriors center Andrew Bogut. And, because it’s the NBA, the refereeing crew (led by Doc Rivers’ mortal enemy, Bill Kennedy) huddled around a replay monitor for
In what was a role reversal it was Blake Griffin tossing a delightful alley-oop to his fellow Clippers big man DeAndre Jordan for the fantastic reverse slam dunk. This was a far superior highlight than Jordan’s alley-oop attempt that was stuffed by the rim against the Boston Celtics just the night before.
Foot Locker has teamed up with two Clippers stars and Lil’ Chris for their latest commercial, and it is great. Chris Paul went a little overboard on gift-giving for his son Lil’ Chris and the result was a very sad Blake Griffin.
So there’s this dude named Blake Griffin, and he’s good at dunking basketballs. Perhaps he’s so good at it that he’s gotten bored of just dunking over opponents, and is targeting teammates, like he did here to Ryan Hollins last night against the Grizzlies. [SlamOnline]
