Second was the Diop missed free throw.   You almost have to feel bad for the guy.  I mean when you shoot a foul shot that’s literally about 7 feet you’ve got some serious confidence issues.  I’m sure Shaq was laughing his ass off when he saw that clip. And then number 3, which is our choice.   This dunk.   I mean come on Blake Griffin.   This has gotta be the dunk of the year.  It’s very similar to the one he did last year on Timofy Mozgov only this one’s a bit closer to being a dunk and he’s further from the basket.  Plus it
