In the NBA you know you’ve made it when you’re being honoured with your own countdown of top plays. Blake Griffin certainly meets the criteria of a player who has reached the top – or near enough.
Griffin, aka “the Slam Dunk Machine,” aka “High Griffinition,” aka the “Best freakin’ dunker in the NBA (to some),” turned 25 on March 16, so LACTV decided to honour the high flyer with a compilation of his best dunks.
Typically when such an occasion comes by, a player usually gets a top 10 compilation, but Blake Griffin spends so much time punishing the rim it would be almost impossible to pick just 10 of his dunks.
So they went with 100 instead – Smart choice. Though it’s still a bit of mystery as to how they managed to narrow it down to 100. Nonetheless, I’m sure the Blake Griffin fanatics out there won’t have too many complaints about the end product. Here are the 20 best dunks according to NBA.com. I'm sure Pau Gasol, Timofey Mozgov and Kendrick Perkins aren't sick of seeing these.
And for those with a little more time your hands, here’s the rest of the Dunkfest. Enjoy.
