Blake Griffin Dunk

Blake Griffin Dunk, My buddy was in the building for one of those Halley’s comet moments, when physics-defying athleticism warps reality and freezes time. And my buddy missed it.
Journalist J.A. Adande was retrieving his laptop in the press room, where he caught Blake Griffin’s dunk live on TV. And as Clippers fans exalted with Richter scale reaction, Adande scurried out to the court, just to hear it. To feel it.
“And that buzz,” he said, “lasted the rest of the game.”
Griffin’s dunk last week over Oklahoma City’s Kendrick Perkins was the dunk of the season. Even LeBron James tweeted as much — and this was soon after LeBron literally dunked over John Lucas III.
One could argue that Griffin’s dunk was the greatest dunk in the history of dunks. If you didn’t see it — go see it! — here’s the play-by-play account:
B Griffin flares off a pick he set and receives a bounce pass on the left side of the lane, parallel to the top of the half circle, the one that extends from under the basket.
B In one motion, he catches the pass and leaps toward the basket.
B Perkins gets in front of Griffin’s elevating body and lunges forward with his arms up.
B In midair, Griffin ccks the ball back with his right hand while he cold-ccks Perkins in the face with his left hand.
B At its apex, the ball in his hand is more than a foot higher than the rim. Griffin viciously throws it at the rim — catching the rim with his fingers — and as he falls back to earth, his mouth is agape when he hits the hardwood.
