Something special happened Monday and the sports world is still buzzing over it. Blake Griffin provided sports fans all over the world with the dunk of the year and perhaps the past few years, as well. The insane dunk happened in the third quarter of the Clipper’s game against Oklahoma City. Blake received a nice feed from Chris Paul and then took the ball to the hoop. But, he didn’t just “take” the ball to the hoop; he jumped over an outmatched Kendrick Perkins and proceeded to posterize him.
You should tell stories about this dunk to your future grandchildren. Kendrick Perkins will be calling Blake Griffin, “Dada” for a long time. Perkins had this to say after the game, “It happens. At the end of the day, if you’re a shot-blocker you’re going to get dunked on. It was a great play he made. Obviously, I wish I wasn’t in it.” Poor guy. He is going to have nightmares of that dunk for the rest of his life.
Blake Griffin knew he just did something special, “By the crowd’s reaction you can kind of gauge how it was. My second gauge is DJ’s reaction. He came up and like arm-locked me. I couldn’t breathe. I had to like pull him off.” He said.
But, Chris Paul summed it all up by saying, “That’s one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen.”
Bravo, Blake! Respect.
