Exclamation Blake Griffin's Ridiculous Dunk!

This is pretty thread worthy, in my opinion.


Would've been better if he did it over a Kia, but I can't complain.

The degree of difficulty on that dunk is pretty damn high, boys. The timing and toss have to be pin-point. Add in the extension and pure power on the finish, and we've got ourselves a dunk.

Easily better than anything he did in the dunk contest.

It's not like he's firing a proton torpedo into a small thermal exhaust port approximately 2 meters wide (Trench run - Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki).

There is so much room for error as demonstrated by where he caught the ball. The hard part to that play is the dunk - unless you're 6'10 - then there is no hard part.

His first attempt which he quickly gave up on had a high degree of difficulty - going for the direct oop with the toss bouncing off the wall avoiding the shotclock.

Another pretty sick dunk from Griff at USAB practice.

If he somehow tossed that off the wall and hit the backboard like that and got the dunk it would of been off the charts... Thinking about that possibility made this one not as great

Best I have ever witnessed live or on video are VCs dunks he was making during his first Charity game at the ACC in 01. This highlight reel doesnt do it justice.

I think he should be practising on things other than dunks and spins.
