What constitutes a dunk? When I first saw this video I was insanely impressed, but I was wondering if it qualifies as a dunk since Blake Griffin didn’t even touch the rim. According to Webster’s dictionary, it does: “A shot in which a player near the basket jumps with the ball and attempts to thrust it through the basket with one hand or both hands held above the rim.” Check and check.
Since we already knew Griffin was capable of throwing down dunks like this one and this one, he has to really work hard to make our jaws drop. His dunk on Kendrick Perkins Monday night did exactly that. How did he make the ball go in the hoop there? It pains me to even say that Perkins got posterized, because there was absolutely nothing more he could have done. Perhaps Blake was trying to make up for that missed alley-oop from a couple weeks ago? Between LeBron literally jumping over someone and now this, it has been a good few days for monster jams.
BEST OF MAXIM
DUNK OF THE YEAR! BEST DUNK OF THE 21ST CENTURY! BEST DUNK I’VE SEEN SINCE…WELL…EVER! BLAKE GRIFFIN JUST GAVE ME A DUNK BONER! I CAN NOW DIE DUNK OF A LIFETIME! KENDRICK PERKINS JUST GOT POSTERIZED! Blah, blah, blah.
Our reaction to the Blake Griffin kinda dunk/kinda a frontal finger roll from last night’s win over Oklahoma City: Perkins’ foul effort sucked.
Okay so I am probably the last sports blogger in the world to post this dunk. Whatever, give a guy a break, life is busy. Anyways, I think it is a great dunk but I still think Vince Carter had many better dunks and let’s not even compare him to Shawn Kemp.
Regardless, Kendrick Perkins is becoming the new “it” guy to show up in under the net looking scared.
When you play in the paint you're bound to get dunked on eventually, but you just hope it's never as bad as what Blake Griffin did to Kendrick Perkins on Monday night.
Griffin has racked up a rather impressive resume of victims and dunks since he debuted for the Clippers in the fall of 2010. Monday, one of the NBA's most well respected interior players had his name...
There are lonely feelings and then there’s the feeling Kendrick Perkins has after being obliterated by Blake Griffin on this dunk. Even the Kia Optima that Griffin jumped over in the dunk contest last year feels sorry for Perkins. Dunk of the year? That depends if Griffin doesn’t want to take any more souls before the end of the season.
Blake Griffin’s dunk heard around the world is getting the Taiwanese animation treatment.

Kendrick Perkins got ethered by Blake Griffin. Perkins never had a chance.
The Clippers would go on to beat the NBA-best Thunder, 112-100 behind Griffin’s monster dunk and a barrage of three-pointers.
