Normally, a posterizing story involving Blake Griffin wouldn't really be news-worthy, unless the power forward truly ruined someone's career with a dunk.

However, the Los Angeles Clippers star makes the news today for his role in a truly monster jam. That's because Griffin was on the wrong end of an incredible posterizing from NBA veteran, and noted old man, Kevin Garnett.

Garnett and his Minnesota Timberwolves welcomed the Clippers into Target Center last night and produced a truly highlight worthy play from the 39-year-old.

Garnett travelled back in time on that hardwood as he collected a pass at full speed from point guard Ricky Rubio in the lane and threw it down straight in Griffin's face, to the delight of the T'Wolves players, coaches, fans and media in attendance.

You can check out a video of the slam below, via the NBA's official Vine account.

As you can probably imagine, dunks of this kind aren't a typical part of Garnett's offensive repertoire as he nears 40. In fact, it was the former NBA Champion's first dunk since returning to Minnesota last season.

Blake Griffin got a taste of his own medicine last night, and the fact that it was dished out by a veteran like KG just makes it so much sweeter.
